We had a great breakfast of French toast, eggs and bacon. It put us on the road for the day. Clean restaurant and good service.

This restaurant is associated with Rockin' Ys and couldn't be managed more differently. Rockin' Ys is fantastic. Kix on 66 needs a LOT of work. We arrived at Kix on 6 for breakfast around 9 a.m. There were people crowded at the front waiting for tables, but not because the place was full. I counted at least 8 empty tables,... More

We popped in & right away found friendly staff we could kid with. Coffee came right away and the cup was never empty. Hubby had bacon & eggs but I had a Mexican enchilada special which was "awesome' but be hungry when it comes. Decor was nostalgic, typical tourist expectation. KIX IS A TOP PICK.

There aren't many attractive restaurants in Tucumcari. Kix on 66 seems to be the best choice around for breakfast. We didn't eat other meals there, so can't comment on them. From the exterior, Kix on 66 looks just like a Denny's; its interior is classic diner, but more fun, as it is enhanced with Route 66 flavor. There are many... More

We thought the name was catchy so we stopped in this diner for breakfast. We both got simple meals. I'm not so adventurous in diner type places so I went

The fun part about traveling route 66 (the mother road) is all the fun little restaurants along the way. This one is in a former Denny's and they took the original sign and changed it to their name. Surprisingly, they had a wide range of choices available. I took french toast (which they called griddlecakes for some reason). Delicious! And... More

Although we had this place on our list of stops on Route 66 we actually just popped in as it looked inviting and had brunch. The chilli cheeseburger was excellent so would definitely recommend. Best food we had in Tucumcari so worth its top rating.

We had lunch here while traveling. Food was good, strawberry milkshake great! Low prices. We liked it better than Del's next door, tried that last year.

We had breakfast here and enjoyed the service and food. I asked for hatch green chilies on the side, for my scrambled eggs, yummy! Our server was friendly and accommodating.

A well preserved diner from the 60s. A lot of effort has gone into preserving the feel. Menu is typical diner style. Clients include travellers and local farmers.
