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. I had the Chiles Rellenos, which were about as good as any I have had anywhere including in Mexico. My wife had a steak, which was done to perfection. 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.

Baked potato ok served with the tiniest glob of sour cream imaginable. Never again! Oh yes, Dos Equis on tap, took fifteen minutes to get one, flat as flat can be.... More

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
