Food was good and our waitress was a sweetheart, but the people at the register...both when we arrived and when we checked out...were simply unfriendly.
When we weren't greeted, we said hello first, and there was no response.
When we left and paid, not one word was said to acknowledge us, thank us, or to say goodbye.
We were taken aback.

We enjoyed the food here although they were out of the "special" for the day. Lots and lots of travelers going back to their permanent homes up north from their AZ, NM, TX wintering. Everything was fine, and it was a cut above the usual blah cafes.

Dined here while staying at the Blue Swallow. The steaks were good ; not perhaps quite as good as McLean Texas. Very impressed with the variety on the salad bar and the unusual soups. Thought value was really excellent too.

My husband and I arrived in Tucumcari, hungry and unfamiliar with the town. The hotel clerk recommended Del's as a place where she often eats herself. The restaurant is on one of those Route 66 streets where many businesses remain boarded up. Yet this place thrives. It was full when we arrived and we were surprised that we had to wait (not long though) for a table. It was worth it. The food was tasty; portions were generous; and the service was outstanding. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. My husband ordered a combo Mexican dish that he loved. I went with one of my old favourites - beef pot roast with baked potato. There were lots of interesting dishes, and looking around the room, there were some good looking meals. Definitely a good choice and I highly recommend it.

We had the pleasure of having dinner two nights in a row at Del's.
Prime Rib first evening, followed by Roast beef and chicken dinners the next night gave us a good feeling for the menu. The salad bar was fresh and plentiful, the soups were changed daily, and the service was warm and welcoming. The line for tables both nights was well deserved.
