Great place to stop in for a beer, and Mexican food while shopping downtown. All the food here is good and has been a long time favorite of the locals. Personal favorite are the chicken enchiladas. Oh ya, did I mention the cold beer?

Visited Lucy’s twice. First visit had the delicious and very favorable green chili rellenos. They come with a choice of cheese chicken or beef, and are fried in a crispy egg batter. The green chili sauce is served mild, medium and hot…trust me the hot is hot but so good you can’t get enough! Second visit ordered the chipotle grilled... More

The menu is extensive, and the food is good. The hot sauce is a little ketchup-y, but had a good flavor. Don't go with the "hot" option on your entree unless you really mean it. The plates come with a lot of food, and the beans and rice are good. Service was decent. House margaritas were strong, I thought.

Mexican food was very good, we had flauntas, enchiladas and beef burrito, everything was really good. We didn't have a chance to try their famous margaritas, maybe next time.

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.
