All the food on the buffet was very good. Great price and everyone working there was very nice. Would go back again when in the area. Right on Route 66.

Ordered from the Rodeway Inn and food was delivered in a short time. They did NOT include plates which was a pain but the hotel gave us some to use.

surprising selection for a small town buffet. Decor is dated but so is the rest of Tucumcari for the most part. Food tasted good but was not hot, some was just barely warm. Best thing on the buffet for me was a chicken and potatoes curried dish which was very good. Had to get up and find someone to get... More

Most everything in Tucumcari is very old and dated, this restaurant is no exception. However, the food was excellent and the service was great. Very tasty food. Not much to look at from the outside or inside, but we didn't have to spend an "Arm and a Leg" for a great meal.

Where to start, Hot & Sour soup completely inedible, tiny vegetable egg roll they appear to be store bought frozen and my House Special Lo Mein was spaghetti type noodles w 3 shrimp, 3 pieces of chicken and 3 pork slivers. So with tip just under $20 & most of it was dumped out. Save your money and go elsewhere... More

Our usual vegetarian option traveling in rural America is Pizza Hut: "Large Veggie-Lover please." We had arrived rather late and the manager at our motel told us that the local Chinese Restaurant delivered. We've had some pretty bad experiences with small town Asian food but decided to try it. We were quite pleased. We ordered Szechuan Broccoli and General Tso's... More

Had Chinese food from there delivered to my hotel. It took a while to get. It arrived steaming hot which was nice however the eff fu young was burnt and the gravy was like water I asked specifically for silver ware and got no spoons for the soup. The rice was lumpy also. A very disappointing experience

This has to be the worst ever restaurant that I have had the mis-pleasure to eat at. We were in and out within 30 minutes. Firstly there was no atmosphere. No music, just a tv stuck in the corner. We were asked if we wanted drinks, I requested a white wine, they don't serve alcohol. Then we ordered 2 Sprites,... More
