While on a road trip from Wisconsin to Arizona, we stopped again at The Rockin'Y. Last year we had an enjoyable dinner here and we were not disappointed again this year. The service was prompt and helpful, both meals (meatloaf and chili releanos ) were delicious, not over-salted like many food joints along the road. I had a glass of... More

Having just driven about 800 miles the evening that I stopped in, Rockin' Y's was just what the proverbial doctor ordered. I was bushed, exhausted, spaced-out and famished from far too many miles of interstate driving when I walked in. I was greeted and seated warmly and quickly...I ordered a salad, meatloaf and mashed potatoes with gravy. It was outstanding... More

Remember it's a diner not a 5 star restaurant. Jackie, our waitress was so friendly and nice. The Enchilada Platter was a lot of food and hotter than what would be served in Iowa - but awesome! The burgers and potato salad were also very good. A good place for a good, relaxing meal.

We were stuck in Tucumcari due to tire problems and so looked for a place for supper. This was close to our RV Park so we decided to try it. A Route 66 kind of diner but nice inside. I had the St. Lois Ribs and my hisband had sausage an d brisket. My ribs were juicy and tender and... More

I at a late lunch here and had their Mexican Sampler. It was two plates of really good Mexican Food. All my favorites with flavor and not overloaded with spice. Don't miss this place if you are in Tucumcari.

We were passing through on our way to Arizona and were ready to eat. Rockin Y's Roadhouse doesn't look like much on the outside, but it's on Route 66 and from reading the signs, etc...it seemed like it would fill the bill. Again, not much to look at (even on the inside), but when you realize it's on "Historic Route... More

The food was good, the staff was very friendly. We were just passing through, looking for a place to eat that didn't have a drive through. I would definitely recommend this place and would eat here again.

There used to be a couple of places like this in every little town on 66. All but a few have been replaced by plastic stereotypes. This one is the real deal! Hand cut French fries, outstanding meatloaf, and barbecued beef that's butter-tender! I resisted asking the guy at a nearby table for a taste of his enchilada. It looked... More
