Awesome blast from the past!!

This diner was our favorite in Tucumcari!! The nostalgia was terrific and the food even better!!! Only open for breakfast and lunch, though.

Such a great little diner! Our food was fantastic! We always love to stop in Tucumcari (we love the Blue Swallow). I'm glad we chose to eat here, my Green Chile BLT was delicious. Kids loved the burger and pankix, and the sweet potato fries were amazing! Great service, awesome atmosphere.

This restaurant was open early for breakfast. They were fairly busy but the wait staff were attentive. The order was correct, the prices reasonable and the staff friendly. We would visit again.

Stopped in Tucamcari for lunch on the way through New Mexico, and went off the highway through town on the old Route 66 rather than hit another chain restaurant off 40. This was a charming little diner that is only open for breakfast and lunch, and it was well worth the small detour. Friendly service, and good food. I had... More

We really loved the Mexican-style breakfast dishes. I got the Mexican Scramble which was delicious. This place has a great retro atmosphere and friendly staff. We would definitely stop by here again. They also have a nice little gift shop with Rt 66 souvenirs.

This restaurant was immaculate, good food and we received quick service. Don' t miss it when driving through Tucumcari. Themed with Route 66 paraphernalia, very cute and interesting.

Breakfast was great here with a good selection on the menu. They also had a great selection of coffee drinks including lattes. The gentleman who seated us was extremely polite and friendly and the waitress was very prompt and helpful. We enjoyed our breakfast here before hitting the road for a long trip.

Really enjoy the atmosphere and staff at Kix. Friendly as you walk in the door and it just never ends. This is a stopping point for long drives with my family down Interstate 40. Parents, kids and dog all enjoy our time and food at Kix. Who else has a menu for dogs so you can let them in on... More
