Enjoyable-Good

We stopped for a burger and were pleasantly surprised. This is a small restaurant. The wait staff was warm greeting us. Our burger was cooked well with a good flavor. We split a house salad. Fresh, cold leaf lettuce. This venue is worth your visit if you find yourself in Tucumari.

Nice moist ribs. Brisket was a little dry. Sweet potatoes have a taste that I could not identify, but they were excellent. Staff was very accommodating. They split a meal for us with no extra charge.

I'm only giving this 3 stars rather than the 2 it really deserves because you're unlikely to find anywhere better in Tucumcari and though it may be hard to believe find somewhere even worse, but if you're there overnight you're going to need to eat somewhere. On the drive here we passed lots of stalls selling fresh local vegetables, so... More

As we were passing thru, we were looking for a good place to eat. Nothing seemed to be open until we got to the East end of town. Was it a treat. Good meatloaf and real mashed potatoes. My wife had a cheese burger and said it was also good. We'll remember this place.

This is a good place to eat. Lots of locals eat here and many people traveling through town stop too. The parking lot is usually full indicating that people like it. They offer a varied menu all at reasonable prices.

They are trying to make this place like to old Route 66 Diners. I'd give them an A for effort and a B- for execution. If you are just looking for a quick burger and fries for lunch, it will do.

We eat here at least twice a week. Always good service and food. We enjoy the atmosphere and the location is easy to access even for big rigs

We were told by the manager at the hotel that this was a local favorite and good place to eat and we agreed. I had the mexican food sampler plate which included your choice of one enchilada, beef, chicken or cheese topped with red or green sauce, cheese chile relieno, tamale, beef taco, pinto beans, rice and sopapilla, chips n'...

After a day of travel, this restaurant's food hit the spot.......very fresh and tasty. Jackie was our server. She was friendly, attentive and helpful. The wine selection is also good. We plan on going again when we are in Tucumcari.
