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... read 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

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.

We were travelling Route 66 and Tucumcari is a must see place. So we stopped by and went to La Cita. We had a really good time. The atmosphere was nice and the food was excellent. We had the daily specials, so the price was very reasonable.

The food is good, not outstanding, and reasonably priced. The restaurant has take-out service on just about everything they serve. This is pretty handy if-like us-you want to dine in your hotel room. To be fair, Tucumcari is a small town with very few restaurants beyond fast-food fare. There are a few other places in town but Lacita is o.k.... More

My family and I stoped at this restaurant on our way to Santa Fe. I decided to eat there based on Trip Advisor reviews. I ended up having to apologize to my family the rest of the way to SF and all night. The food was not good by any stretch of the imagination- YUCK!!! We ended up with...shall we... More
