Tatum, NM

28 Dec

A town without a place to eat a good burger should not be on the map.  Tiny’s is in Tatum New Mexico, a small town way out in the middle of oil field and cattle country with not much more than say 800 residents.  But there sure is a lot of traffic through this area considering Tatum is located at the junction of the 380 and the 206.  Bring your appetite to Tiny’s.  The portions are good, the price is just right.  As for spending anytime in Tatum, there’s really not a lot to do unless you are in the oil field business or are a rancher.   There are seasonal activities such as highschool football and rodeos.   Other than Tiny’s, probably the big eye catching attraction in Tatum is found on the east end of town; a very large collection of black wrought-iron silhouettes and interesting formations.  These are used for signs, mailboxes, etc.  For miles in any direction, these wrought-iron silhoutted signs/scenes adorne the entrances of the huge ranches and mailboxes of those living way out yonder.  tinysburgerbarntatum
