Over the years I have been to see the Flying J show at least a half a dozen times. It is always great, both the food and the show. We were there on Saturday, July 12th and it was no exception. They have added some different buildings and things for the kids since I was last there. If you have... More

This is a great place for young or old to enjoy. We go to the Flying J every year when we are in Ruidoso. We would not miss it for the world. Great Music and funny jokes and the food is always hot.

We went to the Flying J supper on Saturday, June 28th. We had been to a different chuckwagon dinner show years ago in CO, and enjoyed it. The entertainment was good, the singers were excellent. We were disappointed with the food. We had the brisket, my husbands was fine, but mine was half fat, which was very difficult to cut... More

The meal is served cafeteria style. The food wasn't great by any stretch of the imagination, but the live entertainment makes up for it. This would be a great place to spend an evening with your kids.

Personally I had a good time here. I enjoyed the food, the singing group, the western show, the shops and the little town area. They had gold panning for children, fake funny tombstones and it was set up nice.

Great food with great music & entertainment. What more do you need? Anyone that loves old-fashioned country type music needs to try a chuckwagon. Very family friendly. A wonderful night of fun.

My wife and I have been going to the Flying J Ranch while on vacations for over 30 years. Great food and great entertainment. Setting is an old western town in the pines. Chuck wagon dinner offers a choice of two meats, baked potato, beans, apple sauce, spice cake and a drink. Seconds are available so if you go away... More
