Stopped in looking for something other than Mexican. Was delighted to find a menu filled with many "delectable" options. Decided on the gazpacho and a Bosses Burger. The gazpacho was fabulous - so fresh. The burger was perfectly cooked with an abundance of flavor. The staff was a pleasure. Will return again on future visits to Tucson.

We received a gift certificate and gave it a try. We stopped in for lunch and are very glad we did. The cheeseburger was the best burger I've had in a long time. The Havarti cheese and sourdough roll enhanced the overall flavor of the burger and brought it to the "best burger I've had in a long time" status.... More

We all know how tough it can be to find a parking place on 4th Ave, but find one as the food here is terrific. I had a dynamite Reuben with potato salad, and my wife had a TRUE shepherds pie that was delicious. Free refills on the soft drinks too. Prices were fair and the place was clean, the... More

Met here with some friends for lunch. It is a great choice for something like that. Street parking is easy to find. Service is very good, friendly staff, free refills on sodas and teas. I had the chicken and spinach enchiladas served with rice and black beans. It was a great dish. Had enough to take a little home to... More

Delectables has a nice relaxing atmosphere with a cosmopolitan like selection. The food is nice, tasty, and healthy while being a bit unusual. The wine selection is good. Its a great place to have a relaxing lunch or dinner and watch the passersby on 4th avenue.

Had the hot Italian Sandwich on marble rye. Suppose to have capicola, spinach, etc...skimpy on all the filling for the sandwich. Fruit side consisted of 3 small pieces of fruit. I might... More

Presentation was beautiful, food was delicious and the price was very reasonable. Service was excellent, as well, and we ate out under the stars, which was an added bonus. My friends also enjoyed their meal (crepes). I will definitely be back when I'm in Tucson.

Delectables has been around a long time and it's easy to figure out why. It's near the university so you expect bar food but it's definitely a step above that. The gazpacho is wonderful with just the right amount of seasonings and they always have a soup of the day too. They have a nice variety on their menu and... More
