Kayla, our server was fantastic! Very sweet and provided great, fast service. The food was awesome! I got the chicken fried steak and my husband got the ribeye and both were amazing (and he is very picky about his steaks). We will definitely be back!!

We ask where the locals go and we were told Dels. It is a great place with a variety on the menu. Food was great and the staff was very professional . We will stop here when coming through.

We were staying at the Historic Route 66 hotel with our dogs and didn't want to kennel them while we had dinner. Instead, Dels take out. I had salad bar and my partner Mexican hot plate. Nummy and nice people.

Had dinner here while traveling through. The food was good but service was poor. Most of the time our waiter was nowhere to be found. Had to ask another waiter to find our waiter twice. Took him 10 minutes to bring out chips and salsa. The other service personnel seemed to be much more attentive to their tables. I'm sure... More

We drove out of our way to come here. Very mediocre. Spinach quesedea was soggy and greasy Beef temale and cheese enchilada were so-so. Waiter acted like he was bored. Sorry we stopped

We picked Del's from several recommended both here and in Yelp. It was a winner! Good parking along historic Route 66 with themed decor inside. Great little gift shop to pick up those 66 souvenirs. The menu was extensive, the service impeccable. We really enjoyed having a casual dinner here while on the road. Positively one of the best experiences... More

One thing about Del’s is that they have the perfect combination of classic Southern and Southwestern cuisine on the menu. I had the absolute pleasure, though, of ordering the fried chicken fingers with southern peppered gravy. It was the best fried chicken I have ever had! The batter was perfect, not to heavy and oily, and so crispy and so... More

We stopped by for lunch while traveling. It was late afternoon and not much else was open. We were pleasantly surprised. It was cute, and the service was excellent. The soup and salad bar was very good. Best potato soup ever!
