We've eaten at Delectables several times this summer. Each time the service has been friendly, enthusiastic, helpful, and fast. The place is clean, comfortable, and looks out onto fourth avenue which is quite pleasant. The food is not only very good, it is taken to a level higher than most casual restaurants in Tucson. It straddles the line between simple... More

One of my very favorite restaurants in Tucson. A combination of traditional favorites infused with delectable twists. Superb attention to detail - great service. Wonderful live music and events on selected nights. Everyone I know loves it - a local tradition and favorite.

We tried to go for a quick lunch, but we were asked to go outside because our 3 month old began to cry. He was not louder than the other patrons and we were trying to console him. I did not get to eat my lunch as I had to take my baby outside into greater than 90 degree heat,... More

we stopped in for a late lunch. Special of day was vegetarian lasagna. Quite good and reasonable for $10. Was not overly enthusiastic for the white wine choice of the house, a Pinot Grigio (The See). Patio service; chairs were rusty. Could do with a bit of love and tender care on cleanliness. In a trendy eclectic area of Tucson,... More

We dropped in for lunch. The waiter and bartender were great. The portions were huge. My husband had the enchildas and I had a crepe dish. The were both delicious. It's a casual restaurant with a bar and outside seating. Wish I would have had room for the dessert case! It looked awesome.

Family visit with kids, vegans, adults, and older adults, and all of them liked this restaurant very much. They have a great patio and sitting outside in the evening, listening to the band was a whole lot of fun. The menu is not huge, but is plenty big enough for everyone to find something to eat they liked. The food... More

My husband and I dined here tonight and were disappointed in the food quality. I ordered a small Caesar salad with an addition of wild salmon for an extra charge. The greens tasted like they had been hanging around for a while, and I found the salmon impossible to eat. It had been way overcooked so it was dry and... More
