Good Mexican food at a great price

Want really good Mexican food at a great price? Well the Pow Wow restaurant is the place. It was recommended by the property were I was staying and the staff agreed it has the best Mexican food in town. You will not be disappointed.

Good food, shuttle service, and you get a discount if you show your Hotel receipt! Nice lounge area and friendly staff members. They even have a talking lizard statue! Fun for the family.

Recommended by blue swallow motel. They come and get you in their shuttle which is great. They let us set up our music as we were a travelling band and we had a good night. They have some great old photos and the food is good. If you have a beer they have frozen glasses. Looks a bit shabby from... More

Motel Safari recommended and we thoroughly enjoyed the friendly service, relaxed atmosphere and good food after a long drive. They were patient and helpful as we looked over the menu, then we started with the salad bar of fresh salad and soup which really hit the spot. The fajitas and enchiladas were perfect and the complimentary sopapias made a very... More

This place was recommended by the Motel we stayed at. They will even pick you up from your motel and take you back if you don't feel like driving. Good food, good prices, wonderful attentive servers. You won't go wrong eating here.

Tucumcari wasn't a place we will remember for good food and we were ideally looking for something that hadn't got refried beans or been in the deep fat fryer. We ate here with some Americans we met which was nice and ordered fish which sounded nice it was a collection of deep fried seafood which was ok and the Americans... More

We didn't plan to eat here, but are glad we did. Not all that impressive from the outside, Pow Wow served up some great Mexican food at a good price. Service is very attentive, and the owner circulates and talks to the guests to make sure everyone is happy. Consider this place if you are stopping on Route 66 in... More
