Saw people coming in after us get their food. We ordered two sandwiches and some pancakes. Should not have taken that long. The a/c was great at first but after that long wait I couldn't wait to get out of there!

As good as any Denny's, but around the edges of the parking lot and in a number of RV spaces there is plenty of room to park a big rig, even at noon.

Since we had already had poor service and food At one earlier in the day we were not sure what this one would be like. I ordered my usual cheese quesadilla with sour cream and pico and and my husband... More

I know, it's Denny's, a place I don't typically choose. We were traveling through Tucumcari and didn't really know what was there so we took a chance on a familiar name. We had the absolute pleasure of having CC as our server. By the time lunch was over, we felt like family. It was Friday and clam chowder was the... More

Denny's is a well run restaurant. This one is no exception. Manager was on top of business and politely directing their employees. Food was hot and good. Waitress was helpful and friendly but did not smile. Wife ordered one thing and I ordered another. Both entrees were hot and looked just like the picture in the menu. Good place to... More

We had gotten into Tucumari later in the evening and there wasn't alot of places open that late so we decided to eat at Denny's. The service was very good and so was the menu. First time we had eaten at a Denny's in many years. The only nit we had was that there wasn't any caffeine free diet soda... More

We "rented" a table here while waiting for a friend to come rescue us when our van broke down on a trip (that's my way of saying we stayed much longer than needed to eat our meal). The restaurant was clean with lots of natural light, the staff friendly and helpful, the food typical of a Denny's. I ordered the... More

I always stop at this Denny's when I'm passing through the area, this is my fourth visit here. I like that they are open 24 hours a day. They were quick to seat me and to take my order. The food came quickly also. I got the Grand Slam breakfast, everything prepared perfectly. As usual the food was good and... More
