Every time my husband and I visit Tahlequah, we eat here. We love the chicken fried sandwich. We sat down, placed our order: two chicken fried sandwiches without lettuce and one order fries. What came out was two sandwiches with lettuce and two orders of fries. So, they got our order completely wrong. We informed the waitress and she took... More

First time visit! Had to try what is touted as the best chicken fried steak in the state of Oklahoma... Del Ranchos has been around for a few generations and reminds you of a classic diner. It's a seat yourself and there are booths and tables. Probably about twenty total seating places. As you determine your order, you pick up... More

Old Style dinner, and a great experience! Nothing like ordering your food from a phone attached to your booth. Inside was Route 66 nostalgic and the food was great along with the chocolate malts!

This place was awesome. Over 100 options on the menu. Best local food I have had in forever. Great small town dinner like I was in a Happy Days episode.

Stopped in for dinner. Ordered 2 chicken baskets and when it came out the fries were cold, had been sitting too long. I picked up phone and told them I wanted a fresh order, that the fries they servef us were cold. The waitress came over and we told her, she went and got us fresh hot fries, and apologized.... More

This is the place to stop if you like a good chicken fried steak sandwich. The Indian taco is pretty good too!

I am a huge fan of Del Rancho! It is a real deal diner...and has not changed a thing for many years. If you like real and authentic diners, are ever in Tahlequah...run, don't walk to the Del Rancho! Ordering is easy, and fun. Simply pick up the old fashioned phone on your table, and a person in the kitchen... More

The food here is great as well as the service. The ordering is easy however the phone system they use is sometimes hard to understand as the volume seems very low. The menu is typical of other Del Rancho restaurants. Stop in for a visit if you're in Tahlequah.

A big menu with many choices. I've been coming here for years and the food is consistently delicious. My choice is the steak sandwich supreme!! Also has a drive thru.
