Had 1 enchilada dinner, a little pricy for quality/taste. The sopapilla was bready and cold. (Got this dinner to go). The enchilada was small. Would not recommend. Very nice decor.

We ate dinner at Del's while on a road trip in October. Tucumcari has seen better days. Del,s was convenient to Hwy40 and provides standard diner food. Service was just Okay, a little uninterested it seemed. If you are looking for an old Rte66 experience, this is not the place.

Decent food, good value, nice people. One of several places recommended by the Blue Swallow folks, and they were right about this one.

After being on the road for 11 days I was really missing "green stuff" so was really glad to feast at the soup and salad bar. Good selection of items. My husband liked the chicken fried steak, his favorite.

The staff was very responsive and the food was good. The salad and soup bar is a nice bonus. Pricing was very good and I would definitely recommend stopping here if in Tucumcari. Try the petitie Ribeye, it was excellent.

A very pleasant dining experience. Nice atmosphere, good food and excellent service. Our server, Renee, was friendly and efficient. We had the rib eye which was good. The entree includes soup and salad bar. Limited wine list.

This is probably your best option for a good meal in Tucumcari. The meals were good and reasonably priced, and the decor is somewhat updated and comfortable. I had the ribeye, which was OK, and my wife had the chicken chimichanga, which was pretty good. Mine came with a nice salad bar, while the Mexican meal came with a sopapilla... More

It was a cold evening for September and the restaurant was immediately warm and welcoming with many happy looking diners and terrific staff. Our meals of New York Strip & a Chimichanga were delicious and the Bogle Petite Syrah wine was excellent. We would certainly love to revisit.

My wife and I got off the highway and had lunch at Del's last Saturday. It is a big place. We both ordered the chicken fried steak with cream gravy and mashed potatoes. We practically licked our plates. We also hit the salad bar. They have several pre made salads, and we found the potato salad quite good. But the... More
