Good Mexican Food

Stopped here on our way through New Mexico. My wife and kids are kind of picky about what they eat and everyone was very happy. Service was very fast and friendly despite being close to closing time.

I'm not sure if I just happened to eat here on an off day or what, but my experience here was awful. The food was terrible and the service was even worse. I was also very concerned about the overall cleanliness of the place. I wouldn't eat here again.

La Cita has a rare combination of great food with the New Mexican flair and friendly faces which is not something you see much of in this day and age. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes to be treated like a friend and eat GOOD food! I personally like their Mexican burger! When you finish eating, you can... More

My daughter and I are on a road trip to Santa Fe. I have an illustrated book on Route 66. La Cita was mentioned as the place to eat in Tucumcari, so we decided to take the book's advice. We are so glad we did! I give it an excellent review because to me it is a perfect example of... More

I saw the Mexican restaurant sign first and it struck my fancy and I stopped, parked and headed in. I turned to the left and walked into the gift and flower shop and thought I had come to the wrong place. Actually, I just turned the wrong way. I needed to go right to get to the eatery and am...

My husband had been here many years ago and remembered how good it was. What a delightful place to eat. First of all you could smell the flowers from the flower shop. The waitress was very nice and friendly, and the food was so good. Stop in and eat you will love it

I have always wanted to stop here but this was the first really good opportunity. The service was good and the quesadilla and carne adovada burrito both perfectly good but nothing out of the ordinary. I think I just hoped for something spectacular. I would certainly give them another try.
