Great queso!

My favorite is the Whatever with chicken or shredded beef. The white queso in medium is the best. They have a great assortment of Margaritas also.

Ruidoso rolls up the sidewalk at 8pm. Lucy's was open so we gave it a try. Dirty carpet, cracked booths, rude waitress and bad overpriced food. $1.50 for one flour tortilla...really? I ate a couple of bites of my dinner...couldn't leave fast enough. Your better off eating at the well known fast food restaurants.

I visit Lucy's often, but apparently not as often as I thought. Been about three weeks, but things appeared to have changed immensely. There were so many flies everywhere it was super disgusting, thought they were gonna carry my food away, our server Guette was very understanding and prompt, she really was great, they did offer us a discount on...

Good Mexican food and good margaritas. Convenient. Right down town. Good place to go eat before going to dance at the WPS. My diet meal there is a taco salad and a side of chile rellano. But their combination dishes are very good.....just not on my current diet. I like Lucy's. One of the favorite places for Mexican food in... More

We never have had brisket in a chili relleno before, but it was delicious. Good tamales and margaritas, too. Average atmosphere with good service. Great chips and salsa.

The young male "host" at the hostess station just inside the door was unfriendly to the point of being rude. He told us there would be a 45 minute wait which we expected as it was a Saturday night. We asked if we could sit at one of the THREE unoccupied high tables in the bar area while we waited... More

My husband and I went in for a late lunch with our daughters. We stood at the door for 20 minutes while the hostess wrapped silverware and a waitress just stood there. My husband walked up to the waitress and asked for a table for four, she was extremely rude to him. She said, "Well I guess I could get... More

We ordered tacos which was the special of the day. It took them forever to get our order out and then the food overall was not good other than the tacos. Beans and rice were awful. Overall service was slow the people were not friendly and food was fair.

Since moving to NM I have heard Lucy's was the place to go if in Ruidoso. And it is wonderful. The atmosphere was nice, the food was very good and the margaritas were wonderful. We will go back to eat and relax if we're ever in Ruidoso again.

This place is horrible. My beans tasted like they came out of a can, my rice from a box of rice -a- roni and my flautas from an frozen box of taquitos. The server didn't know the menu. The margaritas was the best thing they served!
