Great variety

Looking for someplace with a wide variety? Look no further. We had Mexican food, Southern comfort food and fish - all with only a group of four people. The wait staff was good and friendly. The chile rellenos were HOT and wonderful. When we travel through, this is a place we would for sure visit... read more

We were pleasantly surprised after our visit here. The restaurant was very clean, the food was good, our server was friendly. It is not a fancy place, but we weren't looking for fancy. Be sure to try their salsa or better yet, buy a jar to take with you.

I think the reviews are a little high for this standard, run-of-the-mill diner. Service was great, but the food was, meh. The chicken fried steak was nothing to write home about.

Our family had the chili rellenos, chicken fried steak, mash potatoes, okra, pork ribs, hamburger and fries! Every single dish was awesome! Honestly I didn't expect much. I never leave reviews like I should. Must try!!! Great service! Totally satisfied!

stopped for dinner and service was quick, efficient and my patty melt and fries were served hot. The patty melt was good (had better) but the fries were off think it was the ketchup. I would go back again as I have tried other places here in Tucumcari and this is the best one so far. Prices were ok Paid... More

Try the green chili soup, it's the most flavorful I've ever had. Most items from $9 and up, but they do have a "small plate selection." My husband had the fried catfish special and said it was prepared perfectly and he also loved the slaw. They had some Tex Mex, salads, burgers, interesting mixed drinks and have plenty of parking...

Liked the quick service. Liked to browse the souvenir section. This is the type of dinner/restaurant that was popular in the early days. Good food, low prices, a place where the locals and the travelers come for a quick lunch, or an all out dinner meal.

We chose Rockin' Y's cuz we read about it on Trip Advisor. Tucumcari is unique because it's about a day's drive from Tucson on the way home to the Midwest. There are lots of restaurants to choose from. None of them are stellar, I'm sorry to say. Rockin' Y's does the nicest staff folks we have ever experienced in Tucumcari... More
