Quick lunch and margarita

Stopped at Lucy's for a quick bite and a margarita. Food came out quickly and hostess and waitress were friendly and attentive. Nothing special or unexpected but ok.

I really hate writing negative reviews! I can usually find some redeeming qualities somewhere, but sadly not this time! We had driven in from Texas and we're starving, we opted for Lucy's because they advertise that they have the best mexican food in town, this can not possibly be true! We arrived and dud get eaten quickly things went downhill... More

Good Mexican food in Ruidoso. A local favorite. Been going here for years. Don't think they have beer and wine yet. That would be good.

Food is great. They have large monitors to watch sporting events and football games. Server was friendly. The manager was extremely rude to some friends in my party. When the bill arrived, they had different amounts to identical items. One friend in my party said they do this often.

We enjoyed this restaurant so much we ate there two nights in a row. We were traveling for about 2 weeks and this may be the best dinner we had

Although their sign says it is the best Mexican food in Ruidoso we found it to be ok but nothing out of the ordinary. But for sports travelers, they have multiple TV's around the restaurant and a sign on the front door stating All NFL games on Sunday with DirectTv. The prices are reasonable and I'm aware that everyone has... More

The service is terrible and the food isn't much better. The queso was not good at all and it was cold. I ordered a taco plate and the meat in the tacos was cold. I will not eat here again!

The service was bad, the food was cold and it was 4 of us and we all agreed it was bad tasting food and lousy service. We complained and nothing was done! We are not people to gripe but we did on this experience and the hot sauce was nasty! My husbands chili R. Was cold! The fish tacos was... More
