Was not impressed at all. I had the sausage. It was the remnants in the bottom of the pan. I asked if they had any fresher but they were to busy (we were the only ones in the building) We will not return.

The food is marvelous. It is self serve, so if service is bad, blame yourself. The rustic atmosphere makes for a fun family experience. The sauce is excellent.

We eat here often. The staff is extremely friendly. For the past 2 years (since we moved to Alamo) we have ordered our Thanksgiving/Christmas Turkeys from them and they were delicious. The food is great, but the staff is what makes this place.

Driving back home from Ruidoso and looked for a new place to eat and this had great reviews so we stopped to have lunch and it was great. Strongly recommend and well worth it. Restaurant was clean it has a nice rustic interior and bathrooms were exceptionally clean. Friendly staff.

We travel 3 1/2 hours to visit Ruidoso and every time make it a point to have at lease 1 meal at Can't Stop Smoking BBQ. Never been disappointed with flavors or service!

Some of the best BBQ I have laid a lip on. Tender meat and tangy sauces, that you add yourself. Excellant service and great cobbler. Good portion size and did I mention the cobbler? Yum Yum!!

Decided to stop for a early dinner and so glad we did. We both had the brisket and it was fantastic. Also had the blackberry cobbler which was delicious. A stop for sure if you are traveling through. We will be back!

Okay, they say eat dessert first, so the cherry pie is WONDERFUL! If they had had cherry cobbler, I would have had that! The BBQ chicken was wonderful but could have been more done....the meat did not fall off the bone and I had some trouble pulling it off with the plastic ware. I really LOVED the sauce, the classic...
