“Hearty quick meal with good service”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

I've lived for a few years within walking distance of this gem yet only recently discovered it. Delicado's in Courtenay makes really savory southwestern dishes! Reasonably priced, and nice patio for summer lunch, if you don't mind being by a major traffic intersection. Everything is made to order so you can do some customizing of your wrap or platter. If this place moved a block away with better visibility and access, it would be a real booming gem in downtown Courtenay. Order at the counter, help yourself to a beverage, and from there, let the very friendly staff take care of the rest. I see that this is a chain or franchise operation and this is the only one I have frequented; I would encourage the owners to improve on their product by offering locally grown chicken, meat and seafood in their dishes. I think that would make this a really great place!

“Quick and tasty”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

I stop in when in courtenay,I'm usually busy so I don't want to spend a lot of time with lunch. This is the place for that,in and out fast. Soups are always hearty and the wraps are tasty and fresh. Price is very reasonable . Central location if you are walking around downtown. Thumbs up.

“casual but delicious”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

I was pleasantly surprised that the food was both a great price and very flavorful as well. A great place to grab lunch with a friend. Try the hot sauces they are deliciously spicy.

“Surprised - pleasantly!”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

I have zoomed past Delicado's numerous time and been disinclined to go and find out what they had to offer..."just more tacos", I surmised. Well, I was wrong. A buddy took me in and, despite a slightly hokey ambiance, the food turned out to be great: tasty, well prepared and very affordable. This is going to be a regular pit-stop in the future.

“Good choice for lunch : )”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

We actually went for a quick dinner - but given the decor and the menu - it really is more suited to lunch. Very casual, staff were friendly and quick to provide input on the menu. Had the Spinach burrito and it was was fresh and tasty. You can choose the level of 'heat' and that was much appreciated. Added a curry salad and is was also tasty and a good side for the burrito. All in all a flavourful meal at a reasonable price, and good portion size. Would go again, perhaps when the patio is open.
