Great place to stop on old Route 66. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Salad bar was excellent with pinto beans and an awesome asparagus soup. Chicken fried steak was phenomenal - meat tender with good breading and gravy. Steamed broccoli was perfect. Lots of Route 66 souvenirs. We will stop again.

Del's was recommended by my Hotel Desk, it was just minutes away. What a great recommendation. I arrived early in the evening and already they were pretty busy, but I was pleasantly greeted and seated immediately by a Server dressed in Cowboy Plaid with Cowboy Hat. The Menu offers a pretty broad selection of Dinners/Food. Dinners came with a Salad... More

Offered a good variety of American and Mexican dishes. I had the Carne Adovada, it the pork was flavorful and tortillas were warm and fluffy. It was not the best Mexican I have had but was still delicious and worth a stop.

We don't eat a lot of beef. I'm surely glad we used our allotment at Del's! This is another eponymous establishment along the "Mother Road." Old school steakhouse: meat cooked to order (perfectly), baked potato, soup and salad bar, bread basket. All delicious. Great service, and a convenient walk from our motel.

We were traveling through and decided on a restaurant that was close by & it was closed, we seen Del's was open and took a shot. Good food, reasonably priced and our waiter Dennis, even though very quiet, was attentive. Who could ask for more! Recommend!

This is a wonderful "mom&pop", but in reality "sister&sister" restaurant! It was so nice, comfortable eating environment, great food and good price. There is also a small store within the restaurant..got some Del's Coffee Cups to remind me of what a nice time we had every time I have a cup of coffee. Located on original and Historic Route 66!...

Friendly servers with a western motive. They offer a large variety of food with an excellent salad bar. A little pricey but they have a captive audience on the east end of town. The beer rolls are great and they will bring you all you want.

This was our second visit to Del's and both times we just couldn't resist having the chicken fried steak dinner. It's well prepared and delicious. My husband had mashed potatoes and I added a baked potato to mine. We both had the salad bar which accompanied the dinner. Fabulous salad with tons of variety to choose and wonderful dressings as...

Classic American fare with steaks, burgers and New Mexican food. Servers wear cowboy hats and there is a salad bar and a gift shop. Very retro.
