Just had mac and cheese, which was good, not exceptional. Place was packed at closing time, so I suspect it is a good place. I'd return and get something different. People were very friendly and accommodating.

The restaurant has excellent service and they are not under staffed. Although, we did not use it, they have a huge well stocked, large variety salad bar. I ordered the Steak Guadalajara, which was a nice big cut of sirloin that came with your choice of enchiladas, beans and rice. My wife had the Y&Y Enchiladas which is flat enchiladas topped with cheese, beans, onion, lettuce, tomato and a fried egg on top. My wife rated it as excellent and recommends the dish. Unfortunately the steak I had was very tough. It was cooked exactly as I order it, but it was very tough (I'm talking hard to cut with a serrated steak knife tough!) That sometimes happens with sirloin, oh well. The Mexican food that came with the steak was very good. The service was very good. I saw some of the steaks that other diners had and they looked great. I just happened to get a bad one, thus I had to rate the meal based on what I was served. If I am ever in Tucumcari again I will give it another try. I do recommend the restaurant, just don't order the Steak Guadalajara.

The go to spot for dinner in Tucumcari. A selection of American and Mexican dishes await your tired taste buds. Beware, their servings are really generous

Great friendly service with a large menu and very reasonable prices. The lemon meringue pie was fantastic.

Have been stopping and eating at this restaurant since 1964. Every time I go through Tucumcari, the food have always been great and lots of it.
