“Great food and atmosphere.”
Reviewed July 15, 2010

The food here is very good. We had the chicken tenders that were fresh chicken coated in an excellent batter. This was the best chicken that we had on our trip! It seemed that all the food was fresh and very tasty. After, traveling quiet a lot and stopping at average to below average eating spots, this was a very nice surprise!

“Decent food but great service”
Reviewed June 27, 2010

Driving cross-country to Vegas we decided to stop in for some dinner here. It's not a fancy place by any means but it's not bad at all. The service was great and the food was decent. I had the steak fingers and they were freshly cut and battered it seemed. The salad bar isn't too bad but it's nothing extraordinary. If you need a quick bite this place is a good choice in Tucumcari.

“Meat and Tea”
Reviewed June 5, 2010

Good meat, tea and salad bar. No frills, but good services and food. Try the pinto beans on the salad bar -- GREAT! No alcohol served.

“No bar”
Reviewed May 22, 2010

After a long day on the road all I wanted was a cold glass of wine and a hot meal. Wishful thinking because Del's has no bar. I ordered chimichangas, which to my knowledge, are deep-fried and crispy. These were more like a burrito with flavorless wet beef inside. There was a puddle beneath them. They were covered nicely in sour cream and quacamole. Beans and rice...hard to mess those up. It's a kitchy inexpensive place to eat. I guess my expectations were too high and that glass of wine will have to be somewhere else. It's probably a great place for the location.
