Delectables is a quaint and quirky eatery in downtown Tucson near the University of Arizona. It has a full bar and a diverse menu featuring very tasty dishes. Servers are very courteous and helpful. The restaurant also features lots of events - music some nights, poker games on other nights. A fun place to enjoy!

Went for a late dinner. Walked by and liked the patio atmosphere, checked the menu outside, good to go. Justin was our server and was very courteous and attentive. I had something picked from the menu when he arrived and told us the special, it sounded great so we both ordered it. I loved it, but unfortunately my companion found... More

We stopped in for Monday lunch on the patio while checking out the 4th Ave Shopping district. I really enjoyed my patty melt and my wife said that her salad was good. Service was a little slow, considering that there were only 2-3 tables of patrons. Our server was efficient and personable. Prices were average. The best part was enjoying... More

This restaurant was a very nice surprise. We were in the artsy district on 4th Ave, tired and hungry. Went in here because it was the closest restaurant to us. Friendly greeting, excellent with some unique choices on the menu. We ordered asparagus crepes with different cheeses and lemon sauce. Served with some very tasty rice. It was really good!... More

We had visited here once before and had to leave after waiting almost an hour for our meal to arrive. However, this experience was the complete opposite. We were seated promptly for lunch, had an excellent server and bus boy who were extremely attentive to our needs. Our lunches were good and reasonably priced. From our past experience I would...

Six of us had dinner here. Their wine & beer menu was very limited: no dark beers in the bottle(only 1 on tap) & no sweet wines. The cheese/spinach enchiladas were extremely spicey. This is more of a bar that is known for Poker than it's food. Very disappointing.

Our group of eight ladies arrived at Delectables mid-afternoon (after any lunch rush) to a nearly empty restaurant. After ordering our drinks, we indicated that we'd be requesting separate checks, which the server refused to do because "the internet is down and I can only handle credit cards with chips which will take forever so I'm not doing it". After... More

The staff is friendly and very helpful. We had two vegans in our group and the waiter was helpful and friendly when suggesting options for them. I had the bosses burger. The bacon was crispy and the burger was tasty. Hint: not one of the vegan dishes ;-) Good Arnold Palmers with the fresh lemonade.
