Late lunch

Reasonably priced food. Popular with locals. Salad bar and soup was good. My fish had good breaking, but the fish itself was kind of bland.

Del's is a typical all-American diner located on the old Route 66 in Tucumcari. Recommended by our hotel as the "best choice" in town, we found it okay, but not impressive. The menu is diner comfort food with a touch of Mexican. We chose the grilled salmon and the chicken fajitas. Salmon was lightly seasoned and served with a saffron... More

All the standards for a small town steakhouse. Forget the margaritas, weak and sweet. Good salad bar.

What an amount of food they give you here. Excellent salad bar comes with meal. Everyone was real nice and the waitress even took our mail to the post office for us. Now that is service.

We were told about this place from another traveler who comes through here a lot and the hotel staff. Our hotel had a steakhouse in the same lot but we were told to go to Del's instead. The staff was friendly, great food!, and good drinks too. The chips and salsa were the only part that was just ok. We... More

On the advice of a local police officer, we had dinner at Del's Restaurant. I have to say, it was a nice surprise :) Had some of the best tex-mex of the entire trip! Great sopapilla desert for free!!

We were surprised to find such great food in Tucumcari! I had the spinach mushroom quesadillas and they were very flavorful. My husband had an enchilada and a tamale and he said they were delicious. If you order the Mexican food, it comes with chips and salsa and a sopapilla for dessert. The food was great, as well as the... More

wonderful fresh food in a small town. Dels has a nice salad bar with very fresh ingredients and great homemade soups. My husband had the chicken quesadilla and said it was better than any Mexican food he had in California. Service was quick,friendly and accurate.

Go to Hwy 66 and eat at Dells Restaurant. We had a small steak that was tender and fish and chips. Service was excellent. They have a lovely gift shop. Customers raved about the homemade soup.
