delicious food i always get carnitas and chicken thighs, and their sides corn, beans, potatos are all delicious. Sometimes portions are small is my only complaint. Tritip meat is amazing too. The also have some eclectic glass bottle soda flavors and glass bottle coca cola.

I'm into checking out local BBQ places when I travel. I'm mostly interested in ribs and sliced brisket. This place was clean, well set up, good atmosphere, and friendly staff. The prices are very fair. The meat was firmly okay. It was not very smokey, not particularly moist, but not jerky either. The pork ribs were a bit rubbery and... More

I was sightseeing at White Sands National Monument and wanted to grab a late lunch before heading back to photograph the sunset. Thanks to TripAdvisor, I found Can't Stop Smoking BBQ. Once again, TripAdvisor came through. I was greeted immediately as I walked in the door, and the man behind the counter was incredibly friendly and helpful with recommendations. I... More

Love their BBQ. The servers are very nice and the atmosphere is very down home. Good cole slaw too. Wide variety of very good sides.

We had dinner here last night based on Trip Advisor reviews. It was a good experience: my husband had the pulled pork while I enjoyed the tri-tip. We ordered corn on the cob and cole slaw as the two sides that accompanied our meat choice. Also included was a green chile corn muffin and choice of beverage for each of... More

based on the reviews I went to this restaurant expecting a local BBQ joint with outstanding food. What I found was a run of the mill (semi-chain there are multiple locations) restaurant. Overall price was ok the food looked as though it had been out for several hours everything looked dried out. One item you couldn't even tell what it... More

We were in Alamogordo for one day and happened to stop by for dinner. We shared between the two of us and so only tried the carnitas platter. The carnitas themselves were excellent, and with two sides and cornbread, the price was reasonable. The coleslaw was a little too sweet, but OK, but the garlic potatoes were pretty bland. The...

Here in town for few weeks. Tried this smokehouse. The service was excellent. Was not sure what kind of meat to pick and the server was more than happy to get us to try few selection prior to making our choices. The food was very good, especially the Cornitas. The only part which could be better is if they had... More
