I have dined at Delicia many times for lunch and dinner since this place opened. I believe I have tried every Latin American dish on the evolving menus. This restaurant is unique in Lynchburg - actual Latin American food. I think the food rates with that in the top ten restaurants in Lynchburg of all cuisines at any price. Within that group Delicia is also the least expensive.
The food is fresh and expertly prepared.The kitchen and dining room staff is mostly family and they are on site whenever they are open. Rudy, the owner, goes to great effort to get the best food and ingredients at a reasonable price. He and his wife, Vilma, always try to make all customers feel at home. Their family lives across the street in Richland Hills and their children attend Lynchburg public schools. They are invested in the community.
The menu at Delicia includes a Mexican section and that food surpases any "Mexican" restaurant in the area but this is not just a Mexican restaurant. Try the Latin American dishes, They include fin fish, shell fish, beef, pork, chicken and vegetarian dishes, all uniquely prepared and excellent. I won't repeat all that others have said about specific dishes, but the guacamole and Margaritas are worth a visit here if you don't try anything else.
If you are in the mood for "just fast food" then Lynchburg seems loaded with Mexican chain restaurants. Go to Delicia for Latin American dishes freshly prepared with interesting spices and sauces and properly prepared drinks and beer you may not have seen here before. Rudy encourages customers to relax and take the time to enjoy the food and drinks. This is not quickie food.
These hard working people have created something different for us. Give Delicia a couple visits and I think you will add it to your favorites list.
