If you're looking for real, home style cooking, this is the place! Real chicken fried steak (not ground meat), real mashed potatoes, and more great food. Highly recommend

5 of us (all males) ate here on a Saturday evening. Two had chicken fried steak, three had Mexican food. The batter was too thick on the chicken fried steak but it tasted ok. The beef fajitas had a lot of peppers in it but...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
