Nothing Fancy, But Tasty BBQ

Large portions of tasty meat. Sides were good as well. Counter service. Service staff were warm, friendly and very polite. Help yourself to plastic-ware and paper napkins. Two different BBQ sauces. The meats outshine the sauces.

Coming from the heart of BBQ country, who would have thought we'd have such great BBQ in NM. The meat was amazing and so well cooked. I enjoyed my side of corn bread as well. Wish I had room for dessert but I couldn't eat another bite.

This is an American success story. Start off small and grow slow and steady. Best BBQ around. Casual picnic table dining. Please arrive with an appetite cuz your gonna get full.

First visit. Surprised by the selection of meat and sides. I had the pork ribs and brisket plate, mouth watering. My wife had the chicken, and her comment, WOW! Like that it was laid back, and super casual.

We're from Texas, so I wasn't sure about stopping at Can't Stop Smoking, but it was great! We all enjoyed our meals, and the service was excellent as well. I liked the brisket, and my husband loved the sausage. I did think it was a little on the expensive side for BBQ.

The food was not quite up to the level of the other location in Ruidoso, but it was still outstanding and the seating was nice and there is AC. Do yourself a favor if you are in Alamogordo and you like BBQ you must go by there.

I came to Can't Stop Smoking BBQ in the late afternoon after a day at the races in Ruidoso. There is a small inside dining area and a larger covered on enclosed outdoor space. There are quite a few options on the menu. I decided to have the sliced brisket sandwich. The server said that the brisket had sold out... More

Maybe we went at the wrong time of day. It was around 4 in the afternoon when we sought out this restaurant. We were on our 7th day of a cross country trip. We went because my husband wanted barbecue for dinner and we planned an after dinner visit to the White Sands National Monument. According to Tripadvisor reviews, it... More

After spending weeks visiting family in S.A. Texas I thought I had seen and tasted it a when it comes to BBQ. thank God I was wrong! This place has a unique smoky, rich, and delicious taste. If you're looking for some good BBQ this is the place to go!
