Located right on Route 66 (exit#335) Del's Restaurant which has been in operation since1956 as the sign out front announces is only open from 11 AM to 9 PM daily. The decor is eclectic with a mixture of Route 66 and southwestern influence and in addition to the restaurant there is a gift shop. When I was there for dinner... More

We had a decent dinner at Del's. The menu is somewhat limited, more options would have been nice. The food was good, but not great. On the plus side the appearance of the restaurant is good and the wait staff is attentive. There are not a lot of dining choices in Tucumcari, so Del's is one of the better options

Driving across I-40, it's not easy finding an excellent place to eat. We were fortunate to find Del's as our lunch was delicious, served by a wonderful waitress, and amazingly inexpensive. Tucumcari may become the place we aim for on our next trip thanks to Del's. I had a combo plate with an amazing chile relleno, a superb pork tamale,... More

We were quite surprised for this little place. Great salad bar, yummy fresh Mexican food and a fantastic waiter named Paul J. !!! Paul makes ALL of the difference! Love the smiling happy face he exudes :)

A friend highly recommended Del's so we made a point to try it on our way back from Taos to Texas. It was very outdated, though some might say charming. It was clean. The food was good but I wish I had known the portions were not that big. I split an entree with my son and went away not... More

We ate here a few months ago, and liked it well enough to stop in for dinner when driving to Arizona. This place is a great value. This time we both ordered the chicken fried steak dinner, with soup and salad bar, for $10. Not a special - this is the everyday price. And the classic meal was excellent. Very... More

Wide menu of good food. Good salad bar. Excellent service. Surprisingly low prices. May be Tucumcari's best.

This is a family owned business and you need to leave the I-40 strip to find it. Lots of locals there. Our meals were excellent though it took a while to get things out of kitchen. As we had no schedule to meet, this was not a problem. Our server was delightful and pleasant. He came back again and again... More
