This restaurant was recommended to us by the Blue Swallow Motel where were staying. So glad we went there and we loved this restaurant. The food was great, huge portions and the margaritas very tasty! The wait staff was friendly and we never felt rushed through our meal. We loved the family atmosphere of people coming in for a holiday party in the back and would stop by to talk to their friends who were eating there. We loved the mural drawings in the booths. So beautiful and life like. If we are ever in this area again, will definitely stop.

Every year we drive cross country for the holidays and every year we end up in Tucumcari for one night. It's a depressing town and until this trip, all our dining experiences had been mediocre at best. But tonight we tried Pow Wow. For most towns this place would be four stars -- maybe three for the miserable wine selection. But for Tucumcari, this was a solid five stars.

I had the fajitas combo and it was absolutely delicious -- perfectly seasoned and succulent. My partner got an angus ribeye and it was very good. There's a full bar, but the wine selection is "red" or "white.". Service very friendly and the atmosphere is typical of a family restaurant.

If you're stuck in Tucumcari for the night, go to Pow Wow and get Mexican food. It's the best in town.

Have eaten at this restaurant several times on cross country trips. Very nicely decorated Route 66 nostalgia kind of place. Can get a beer and fresh Mexican food. Can taste the fair is homemade not average. Well priced and service great. Sure beats KFC, Pizza Hut and blah traveling food!

Just passing through the town and The Pow Wow was suggested by a local hotel. As written in several other traveler's reviews, the wall murals are well done.
You can tell about a place by the size of the crowd. There were no open tables in the dining room.
The server provided answers to this Mid-Western guy's questions about How Spicy is the Food?
Pow Wow will fix it any way you want it.
It was an enjoyable dining experience.
