Get the Club Sandwhich. It was amazing. Service is quick and waitress is very friendlly. We arrived 10 minutes before the restaurant was about to close, but were told it would not be a problem. Great food.

The food is very good, my husband loved the ribeye and it came with two sides and a salad. I have ordered Nachos, Fritos pie and taco salad they were all good. The service is good.

Beware of the realistic murals of people painted by the booths. They are so realistic I almost stopped the waitress as to people were already sitting there.

Food decent, prices low, even has wine. About what one can expect in a small town, but very convenient for guests of the Quality Inn or nearby. Western/Mexican cuisine. Vegetables are canned but this is not unexpected in the circumstances.

We are here because we were staying at the Quality Inn adjacent to it. It turned out to be a pretty good restaurant. The food was inexpensive, the service was very good. The only issue was the small list of options to select from. We all found what we wanted and enjoyed a good meal.

I ordered an enchilada plate with beef and it was non-descript at best. I've had better elsewhere and should have gone to Blakes for a burger. The chile was mild and the whole meal was blah.

We ate here at the Branding Iron restaurant in Tucumcari with friends. This is located in the Quality Inn Hotel at the east end of town. Very good food. The wait staff was very helpful and friendly. We split a meal with no problem. We will eat here again when traveling in the area. Bob P.

Pot roast was good (a special for,the night).Chicken sandwich was mediocre. Menu items were limited so our choices were limited.

After a long day of driving it is great to see this place as you are checking into the Tumcari, NM Quality Inn. Just a few steps away from the checkin it is kinda small, has a limited menu but the food and service were good. We ate here both in August and November, 2015 and will stop back again... More

My wife and I had a club sandwich late in the evening. The sandwich was delicious and the service was excellent. The waitress was super friendly and pleasant. The restaurant was clean and decorated nicely. Not overly decorated and the menu is somewhat limited which usually means the food is better. I will return again.
