“Homey and tasty for a good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2010

This is a relaxed, comfortable, family friendly restaurant. Similar to Shari's and nicer than Denny's, it offers a similar breadth of menu items as these two chains but the food is better and less costly. Soup tasted homemade, and whipped cream was real! Waitstaff were friendly and efficient. I would have liked more light meal options. Although very clean and comfortable, booths seem somewhat low to table (was at my chest level) and bathroom could use an upgrade. Other than those nitpicky items - highly recommended!

“loved this place. great food. great service. great value.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2010

We tried Della's because it was different then the "chains". Della's has friendly, courteous and efficient staff. We were seated and greeted right away. The menu is a typical family restaurant menu. We placed our order and was served our food shortly after. Dinner was very good. All of us enjoyed our meals. The price is right also. I recommend it to anyone.

“Have The Chicken!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2009

With a sign at the street that simply reads "Restaurant" and a cursive sign on top of the building that reads "Della’s" this location might be easy to miss. On the outside it looks like any family restaurant and inside as well. At the tables they have cute little trivia quizzes to help you pass the time.

The service is decent but they have the disturbing trend of asking you for your drink order before you sit down. How can I order if I’m still standing and haven’t seen a menu? I suppose that’s just prompt service taken a step too far.

The food is good. In fact if you don’t have the teriyaki chicken dinner entrée it is a mistake you’ll regret. This unassuming little family restaurant has some of the best teriyaki chicken I’ve ever had – they put places that specialize in this kind of food to shame. The bread is also fantastic, the salad is decent. Their mashed potatoes have an odd taste to them that makes me suspect they weren’t made from scratch and the gravy they put on it only makes it worse.

The prices are reasonable, two dinner entrees and soft drinks will run you about $32 USD including a decent tip. They'd don't serve alchohol and close a little earlier than you might expect.

Overall the fantastic chicken, atmosphere, and excellent value more than makes up for any shortcomings and provides a nice break from franchise chain restaurants.
