We loved the huge salad bar which was included in the meal. The trout was really good as was the salmon. We did not get any steak but that's because we prefer fish. The fresh hot rolls were really good. Between the soup/ salad bar and the rolls, you can really fill up so go easy on the entrée. Our... More

There are not to many choices in Ruidoso. This place is very average in service and food. The servings are small and the place is kind of dark. It did not appear clean. Some strawberries in the salad bar were black with mold. It was far below my expectations.

Had a great meal. Was there on a Monday night so not crowded. Ate in the bar so we could watch sports. Ordered salad bar and green chile stew. The stew was wonderful.

Overpriced and not at all the food I expected. Limited menu. Both parties went with the catfish. Hard to mess up catfish. Just very bland. Outside presented well but inside was not impressed.

First off, I want to say our meal was great and our server as excellent. There is some room for improvement. For example, 2 of the people at our table had baked potatoes that were not properly cooked. They did replace them, but with smaller potatoes and less toppings. The chicken fingers my daughter had were dry and they looked... More

Once well finally got what we ordered it wasn't bad. The problem was we both ordered prime rib meduim rare and the salad bar. I also ordered a drink from the bar. We went to get our salads and by the time we got back my drink and entree arrived. The prime rib was medium to medium well so we... More

Had dinner at the CB during a 3 day stay in Ruidoso. A great salad bar and the best green chili stew you can find. The bowl was as large as a #2 wash tub. It had a good bite and lots of meat. We ordered three large containers the day we left to take back to Texas. The staff... More

We ordered the Steak New Mexico and it didn't disappoint. It was a New York strip covered in whole green chile strips and Monterey Jack cheese. The salad bar was amazing with incredible choices of vegetables, toppings and dressings. Nice selection of pasta, macaroni and potato salads. For a nice treat, order a sweet potato as your side - it... More

No matter how crowded, we have always had great service and the food is not compromised. Steaks are cooked to order and salad bar is a bonus you won't forget - sit down and enjoy Great company and food.

My wife and I visited because she was craving their green chile wontons. We ordered a plate and the first one I bit into had a wad of un-chewable chicken. The rest were tasty and edible. I had a bit of sticker shock from the menu and was underwhelmed by the choices on the salad bar, so I ordered a... More
