Great food and margaritas! Love the albondigas soup and the chili rellanos! Good service and outside seating.

I would not recommend this restaurant at all. Super slow to receive our food. I sent back my margarita because it wasn’t drinkable. My garlic shrimp quesadilla was inedible. Just don’t go there. How they’ve stayed in business this long is a mystery to me.

Food is great, except for the weak salsa. Drinks and service merely OK and the biggest opportunity to improve. Still, Delgado’s is the best Mexican restaurant in town, if not counting the burritos coming out the back of the liquor store!

Food was good, not necessarily amazing, but very satisfying. Be aware plates are HOT! One member of our party didn't hear the warning and got burned fingers.

We had a large group (10) and sat outside on the patio for lunch. Service was quick and friendly. Food was tasty and at a good price. Everyone enjoyed their meal, even my nephew who ate a hamburger (because he doesn't like Mexican food!?!)

it has handicap parking and easy-access tables out in front. if you can substitute the tall bed for a good Margarita this is the place for you. better plan on weighing a few extra pounds after the meal.
