Delectables has been around a long time and it's easy to figure out why. It's near the university so you expect bar food but it's definitely a step above that. The gazpacho is wonderful with just the right amount of seasonings and they always have a soup of the day too. They have a nice variety on their menu and a wonderful selection of salads. So many restaurants seem to make salads an afterthought but Delectables proves they can be done right. The steak salad is excellent as is the salmon salad and the Cobb. Sandwiches are always good. Try to leave room for dessert (although I never seem to do that) since their desserts are made in house. Nice patio to enjoy the activity of 4th. Well worth a visit when you're exploring 4th Av.

“Relaxing Dinner”
Reviewed August 22, 2014 via mobile

My friend and I go to 4th pretty often and this time she suggested we try out Delectables for dinner. The service was good and the decor very mellow making it the perfect spot for a leisurely dinner. I ordered the 201 sampler. It had pita, hummus, Brie, artichoke hearts, spinach quiche and fruits. I don't normally eat vegetarian dishes but this was so yummy. It was so very filling that I could not eat it all. My friend ordered the small Cesar Salad with grilled chicken. It was good but they were light on the dressing and she had to ask for more. Overall Delectables is a great place to have a nice meal and watch the interesting mix of people walk by. Will be going back again soon.

“Great for anytime of the Day”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

I kept passing by this place all the time, always wondering whether I should stop in and try it or not. Well, today was the day I decided to try it ! Their menu is pretty diverse, it has many things for vegetarians, and also dishes that do not have gluten. And then, on the bottom of the menu, it says "a selection of desserts", well that's because they are freshly made everyday, and you can go see them all when you get in. There are so many dessert choices! People with a sweet tooth will go crazy ( I did). Their hummus is good, and you can see that it is homemade. Their Brie with bread is served hot, and is also very good ! The service was fast, and we always had water there.

“Comfy, casual commonly good cuisine”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

It is difficult to visit Tucson without eating somewhere on 4th Ave. Delectables is one of the restaurants on 4th that should be added to your list of places to visit. The food is good, the service excellent and now the trolley runs right in front of the place. If the weather is nice, there is a great outdoor seating area that you can enjoy as well. In fact, you have to walk through the outdoor patio to get into the restaurant.

“Excellent French Dip”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

This is about my 6th trip back to Delectables.
I was with my wife on this visit. I really wanted her to try their food. I ordered the french dip with potato salad. My wife ordered the lasagna of the day, which was meatballs and spinach. Both arrived after about a ten minute or so wait. Let me tell you, their French dip is the real deal not like alot of other places that use the processed roast beef. The au jus sauce was also excellent. Not salty, and the bun was perfect with melted cheese. However, my potato salad had to much onion in it (choice of three sides: potato salad, potato chips, or fresh fruit). The wife's lasagna was a nice portion for her (even me).
She said it was one of the best she's ever had.
The atmosphere isn't bad. Paintings on the wall that are for sale from local artists. They have a large patio some of it is covered. The menu isn't the biggest, but the taste and quality makes it a trip worth your while. Oh, and they do have a nice bar for whatever drink you prefer. Price was average for 4th Avenue.
