“Nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

After 15 hours on the road, we had to wait quit a while to get seated for dinner so I know that I was really tired. The food was ok but nothing out of the ordinary. The restaurant is large and nicely decorated and clean but the food was average.

“Good food at Great Prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

Friendly, attentive staff. The house wine was good and a very generous pour. Our nachos were tasty, portion was good-sized and prices were reasonable. A nice place for a casual dinner.

“Fast friendly service & good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

We ate here on a Saturday night and enjoyed their prime rib special. It was busy but we were seated within minutes (and checked out the gift shop while we waited) and our food came quickly. Great price and our waitress was helpful and friendly. Salad bar was fresh and offered spinach and a good selection of dressings. If we make it back to Tucumcari, we'd eat here again.

“Delicious homemade food & friendly service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

We stopped on our drive home based on reviews & were not disappointed. Rib eye had great flavor, smothered chicken was great, & so was my daughters grilled chicken. All meals came with salad bar & soup. We all had the pinto beans which were homemade & wonderful! Try the fruit salad on the bar too! We were worried when we walked in & there were numerous people waiting, but we were pleasantly surprised that it only took 1 hour from when we walked in to walked out! Nice cold beer! All around great experience!
