A sister restaurant to Del's, this restaurant is another great find. With a rather spartan decor, this is truly a hometown restaurant. But don't let that fool you. The wait staff is very friendly and attentive. They seem to go out of their way to make sure you have a great experience. The food was very good and timely. Very... More

Very basic side salad with chicken fried chicken and green beans. Friendly, prompt service. Mixed crowd of families and Route 66 aficionados. Would try a burger next time.

Not many place to eat between Amarillo and Albuquerque, but this resturant definitely fills the square. Had the chicken fried steak and it was good. Good size helping with the two sides. Would stop over here on another ttip through.

Driving through Tucumcari it didn't look too promising. Saw many cars in front of the Rockin Y's roadhouse. Daily special of brisket ribs and sausage was great. Other party had chicken fried steak which was just as good. We were very pleased with the service the price and the quality of the food. Would recommend it going thru Tucumcari.

Tucumcari does not offer a lot of choices, and the ones they have are all owned by just two families. Our meals were OK, but the service is what you might expect if there is a near monopoly. They don't feel they need to try very hard.

We were traveling from Oregon to Kentucky and read about this restaurant in our AAA guide book, and thought we'd missed it because it's on the eastern edge of town. We were so glad we passed up all the other restaurants because we had a terrific lunch and a fabulous server, Caitlin (Katelyn?). She was great fun, even teasing us... More

The food is great and prices reasonable. Probably the best grilled cheese I have ever had from a restaurant. Would definitely stop there again if we are in the area. Friendly wait staff.
