We've stayed twice in Tucumcari and both times arrived late enough that we were looking for dinner about 9PM. The Pow Wow is open till 10 and thank heavens. They have really good, basic food and don't be afraid to try anything with the green chile sauce! Even when we've shown up late and are the only patrons, the wait... More

Stopped in Tucumcari and just wanted a good local place to eat at. This fit the bill. Good mix of sandwiches, Mexican/Southwest and Steaks and such. We had the stuffed Sopapilla and the Tacos, nothing fancy, and they were very good. Came with great home made chips, typical New Mexican spicy salsa and a desert sopapilla with honey. Good draft...

The meal comes with a sopapilla, which is a dessert-like dish. However, our sopapillas were delivered before our meal. The server knew this was wrong,... More

The owner is warm and friendly. The food is fresh and tasty. The menu offers something for everyone. The prices and value are decent. Popular with tourists and locals. The atmosphere is laid back and friendly with just the right amount of kitsch. Order anything on the menu and you can't go wrong. Another Tucumcari winner!

There weren't a lot of choices for dinner in Tucumcari, NM. The murals in this place were awesome but the food left something to be desired.
