Fun Place with the Locals

The murals really add to the atmosphere. When we came in, 3 local cow pokes were sitting in front of the projected tv singing along with the 60's music (in tune surprisingly as I suspect they had consumed too much Fire Water). The Wait Staff are very friendly and fun. We ordered the Road Kill... read more

Food was fresh and tasty, and samples offered to choose appropriate heat chili. Waitstaff and manager friendly and efficient. Locals have been painted on murals, and look like they're sharing your table! Staff are painted into beach scene in lounge area. Some locals were watching large screen view of Superbowl in nearby area, but volume did not intrude on our... More

Great fajitas and nachos. Look out for the murals on the wall they are not real people. If you go to the blue swallow, show your key and you get a little bit of a discount.

We came here based on a recommendation from Nancy at the Blue Swallow Motel, and we were not disappointed.

The manager and the wait staff were attentive without being bothersome. The... More

The images painted on the walls of customers in their booths look so real when you first see them you're fooled into believing there are people sitting there.

Good food at reasonable prices. This is one of the few places open later in the evening in Tucumari. They also gave us a 10 percent discount with our hotel key.

Great food and staff. The paintings are amazing. Ask for the Blue Swallow Margarita. Salsa's are excellent and the waitresses and manager are very personable.
