“Fabulous Food!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

The food here is outstanding. I would imagine that everything on their menu is good! Had salmon with rice and veggies that was excellent. And don't forget to check out the dessert! Really over the top!

“Even a menu for the dog!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

I really liked this restaurant. Just wandering by it looked like a good place so we stopped. There is a nice outside patio and a spacious interior. My husband and I opted for a mixed plate, (I think it was called 121), with humus, quiche, sliced brie and marinated artichokes served with pita and some (unfortunately unripe) cantaloupe. Very pleasant! I particularly liked the fact that the patio is pet friendly and there is even a menu for dogs which includes a non-alcoholic beer (what fun!).

“Delectables is great for business luncheons, catering etc.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Great food, great service and Donna, the owner, is very accommodating regarding catering requests. One of the few places in Tucson where gluten free/vegan desserts are available - and very, very yummy I might add! Also, my husband and I have date night there whenever we are in the area. We've never had a bad meal or bad service. I would recommend Delectables to anyone looking for more than your average boring lunch. The meal combinations offered are as enticing as they are delicious!

“Our Special Place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

This is the restaurant we just happen to stumble upon on our very first night in Tucson - a little over 10 years ago. We have returned for most of our anniversaries and for just plain anytime dinning. It is not a fancy place but can be a very intimate place. We appreciate that this restaurant has been around since 1973 - no easy task, and is locally owned and operated + it is one of the Tucson Originals. Their menus for both lunch and dinner are basically the same, with one or more daily specials featured on the blackboard near the entrance. On our most recent visit - we noticed the dessert selections have greatly improved - the Opera Cake was my choice!
