The hotel we stayed at recommended this restaurant. We were very pleased with the menu as it had many options. Prices were very reasonable and the food and service was also very good. They offer an excellent salad bar. We were very pleased.

Surprising and quirky find on Route 66! First of 11 more days of Margueritas! Food was fine, atmosphere fun and obviously enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. Very friendly staff. Clean. Would not hesitate to eat here again should I find myself in Tucumcari!
