Del’s Restaurant

We ate dinner last night at Del’s Restaurant in Tucumcari, NM (about 2 hours from Santa Fe). Tucumcari looks like at one point it was a thriving destination along Route 66, when the highway moved (becoming I-40) the old Route 66 started to fall apart. Nearly a dozen dilapidated motels with the great kitschy signs of older motels stretch along the road. Del’s is one of the few places on the street that is still thriving.
