Great lemon chicken special!

My daughter and I ate dinner here one night while staying in Tucumcari. Our server was wonderful, food was very good, and all was very clean and well-run.

Not our first choice but most everything else in Tucumcari is closed on Sundays for dinner. Too bad because this place was just okay. We were saving ourselves for an old fashioned Rte 66 experience and this place came up short.

Tucumcari rolls up the sidewalks r.e.a.l.l.y. early, especially on Sundays. If the businesses were even open to begin with! This restaurant was open till 8 pm, so tried it out. Had their bbq twosome.

We had the BBQ and were mostly impressed with the quality and service. Portions are large enough to stuff most people. Recommended.
