Excellent BBQ

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!

The restaurant is pretty stark and basic, but the day we were there the pulled pork special was really good. It's almost cafeteria-style while being served to order. The sandwiches came with a choice of bags of potato chips, choice of beans or potato salad, and a refillable soft drink. We actually were pretty pleased with the food and would... More

We visited the Saturday before Easter Sunday 2015. We were on our way back to Las Cruces from the Trinity Site and came back through Alamogordo for the express purpose of eating here. My family had eaten here previously and couldn’t stop talking about how good it is. They were absolutely right. They offer an amazing variety of dry-rubbed, smoked/barbecued... More

You can smell the place before you even enter it - Yum, BBQ. It is kind of a funky place since you pick out what you want to eat sort of cafeteria style. But the food was FANTASTIC and lots of it. Could not complain there! And reasonably priced. If you don't mind serving yourself cafeteria style and want great... More

Lots of BBQ meat selections here - I was there on a Saturday evening an hour before closing. The ribs and BBQ chicken were already wrapped up in saran wrap for the night (or something - I hate to think that it was being saved for the next day!) Lots of steam tables filled with brisket, carnitas, pulled pork, etc.... More
