We saw this place on D, D & D. We stopped for a late lunch. The place was dated but did reflect that Rt 66 feeling. We decided to order a platter. Hubby ordered the roast beef dinner and was quite pleased with his dinner....More

I am interested in knowing whether or not you send gifts from your gift shop to out-of-state customers. We were at your restaurant last year and I bought a coffee cup that said Del's Restaurant and I wish I had another one. I would like to give my brother, Del one of them. I live in Kansas City Missouri. And would be willing to pay the shipping costs of course. Thank you. Leiva Kohlstaedt
