“Del's restaurant excellent service food and hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2010

i have eaten at the The French Laundry, El Bulli, The Fat Duck, and many more restaurant's world wide and Del's had a spectaculaor steak dinner served fresh and hot just the the way i ordered it. as i asked about local eatery's for breakfast, brunch and luch since dinner was so good.!! so i tried another restaurant kixs on 66 and they have excellent breakfast from gourmet pastries to breakfast and the best burgers in new mexico so check out them also (1)( [--] for Del's Restaurant (1) [--] kixs on 66 ) and if you eat there and enjoy the places as much as i did, then show your appreciation by showing all restaurant employees your apprechiation when your given 5 star service like me and my family, i sincerly hope we get to eat there again
Sincerly,
eatingout

“Can't pass through New Mexico without eating here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2010

My family and I discovered Dell's while staying overnight in Tucumcari at the historic Blue Swallow Motel. We were refered to Dell's by the motel owner, and was he ever more right. We loved the food at dinner so much that we returned there for breakfast next morning. Everything was exceptional. When we return to the Land of Enchantment, Dell's is going to be a first priority destination!

“Good local place in charming Tucumcari”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2010

Had the spinach quesadillas--good veggie option. Realized later we never got the sopapillas that were supposed to come with our meals, which was disappointing. But the food was good and the gift shop had lots of fun Route 66 souvenirs. Overall, a good choice.

“Del's is a great Route 66 landmark with great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2009

After sitting in another Tucumcari restaurant for 10 minutes and being ignored by the waitress, I left, and stumbled upon Del's, not even aware of what a route 66 institution it is. I am so glad I ended up there. The food (chicken fried steak) was awesome, the service was excellent, and it was a great route 66 atmosphere. The neon signs out front are way cool, and worth a stop for that alone. Great place to eat!!
