Wish the service was as consistent as the green chili strips

We visitors twice in a week, once a Sunday afternoon and again on a Monday afternoon. Service on Sunday was very good, with a friendly server who was quick to attend to our needs. The visit on Monday could not have been more different. Had to wait about 10 minutes even though the restaurant was... read more

We've been eating there for at least 20 years and have never been disappointed. Where else can you sit at a bar while you wait for a table and gobble up chips and dip. Makes a person not care if your name is never called!

If it were not for the fried green chili strips, I would not come back to this restaurant. This is the most unappealing, cold, undecorated, dirty feeling place I have ever been to. This could be a beautiful place, but it is bare. No plants or any kind or decorations. They have a patio that is so neglected that hardly... More

Good margarita and great red & green chili sauces. The chips & salsa were also tasty! Decor is a little worn but the food made up for it.

I had a cheese enchilada and a crispy beef taco with rice and beans. All was good, not outstanding, but very good. Service was prompt. We had to wait only about 10 minutes to be seated and Ruidoso was busy due to the races.

This is a must do anytime you visit Ruidoso. The bar is located downstairs and the tenders are absolutely great.

Food was delicious, staff was courteous & wait was short. Highly recommend it to everyone. We will definitely go back when back in Ruidoso.

We loved this restaurant! The fried chili pepper strips were to die for. And you get a LOT of them. The Chile Relleno was also wonderful. So was the steak.

There were 3 of us. 2 adults and an 11 year old. We all enjoyed our food! The hostess was friendly. Our waiter, we THINK, may have been new. He was kinda quiet and we had to ask for our drink refills, but other than that it was great. The building is older but has great character. We will go... More

If the customer service (bad attitudes, incompetence, laziness) isn't enough to turn you off then the bland food surely will. This is not Mexican food. Anyone with a microwave could cook better... My guess is that this used to be a good restaurant but they stopped caring/trying. Horrible experience.
