We were seated right away and the staff were very friendly and helpful! We got a variety of menu items and enjoyed all of them. We will definitely go back next time we stop through the area.

Good food here and lots of it. Good salad bar, though we were confused as to whether the salad was included with what we had ordered. The waiter wasn't very friendly and answered our questions with such speed that we didn't understand everything he said, hence the confusion. I had the Carne Avodava. Very good.

Service was prompt and courteous. Salad bar was well stocked and outstanding. Plenty of options on the menu. My wife said the tea was really good, and she doesn't say that about most places. I had the chicken fingers, they were ok, but the french fries were heavenly. Overall, a great place to dine.

Nothing to write home about. Food kinda bland. Waitress didn't have much of a welcoming personality. Restaurant and bathrooms were clean.

Stopped in for diner during our one night stay in Tucumcari. Our table ordered lots of chicken strips for the kids, which were real good. My wife enjoyed their salad bar, which came with my meal which was the chicken fried steak. It was excellent. The atmosphere is very Texas/southwestern and since my 2 year old is obsessed with cows,... More
