My wife and I ate here late on a Monday night (30 Mar 2015) after having been to White Sands National Monument and Alamogordo. We arrived back in Ruidoso later than we had anticipated, and we opted to dine here since it was still open after 8:30pm. This is a chain restaurant in this part of the... read more

The salad bar was great! My wife and I each had the ribeye steak, it was pretty good, not the best cut, but okay. They were a little dry. I added the cheese and jalipeno topping to spice up my steak. The service was okay, must have been a new waitress in training, she at first didn't come to check... More

Enjoyed a delightful meal with my husband. He had the jalapeño rotisserie chicken, and I enjoyed the salad bar. Our service was provided by Dillen who was fantastic! When you have great food and great service, that's makes for a perfect dining experience. We will definitely be back!!

This place should be rated higher. It has the best salad bar and the food is delicious. We ate here twice during three night stay.

Mu husband and I went to diner here two night in a row. We had never been to Ruidoso before and did not realize that it would be very busy for spring break. After a day of sightseeing, we were tired and hungry and decided to stop in at Cattle Baron. What a nice surprise! The salad bar is fabulous... More

The food, employees, and atmosphere are excellent. I thought I would hate it when we walked in since there was no one to seat us at first. But give it just a few minutes and you will have great service and great food! If you are in Ruidoso this is a must go to establishment!!

The salad bar is huge - the steaks were cooked just the way we requested - and the wait staff was experienced and knowledgeable. My only disappointment was my salad dressing appeared to be watered down - but overall it was a good experience.
