Good New Mexican and "blue-plate special" food

I enjoyed eating in this great local place right on Route 66. I had enchiladas with green chili sauce--not too spicy and not too bland--with rice and tasty pintos (not refried beans!) that hit the spot after a long day of driving. Light-as-air sopapillas were also included. The service was... read more

The chicken fried steak is huge and done to perfection. Crispy on outside and juicy on the inside. Also served with REAL mashed potatoes and the corn tasted like right out of the field. The waitress was friendly and helpful. We always stop here when in Tucumcari. Food is reasonably priced and servings are large.

We had the BBQ sandwich and pulled pork. Both were very good. Lots of truck drivers in here which says it's a great diner. Good service too. Throw back diner on Route 66.

Staff was very prompt and polite. Nice to see adequate staffing in place to handle any customer load. Food was very good - and delivered promptly. Waiter was attentive and helpful. A diner atmosphere from the 60s. Highly recommended if you are in Tucumcari on Route 66.

Passing through there's not many choices. It's obviously a locals hangout. They serve a bit of everything. The chile rellenos would have been better if they hadn't been deep fried too long then put under a broiler. Just a bit overcooked. The chicken enchiladas were surprisingly all white meat but it was all chopped up into cubes which made it... More

Service was great and my wife really enjoyed her lemon chicken which was a daily special and was also quite reasonable. My prime rib sandwich was a little tough and not very tasty.

The food was tasty but not really worth the money. The mashed potatoes were real though and tasty! I do not like TVs in a restaurant if it isn't a sports bar. Then having loud mouthed people talking about what's on does not lend well to a pleasant dining experience!

Good stuff but $25 for a veggie plate & enchilada lunch special, water to drink. With tip $29. Ouch. Cute Route 66 decor, friendly wait staff.
