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!

Sat at the bar to have a drink. Bartender couldn't find ingredients to make me a light margarita! She was chopping an apple and blending a salad into a smoothie for her own dinner. With paying customers sitting at the bar.

Lucy's has great Mexican food and they even ask if you want your chili hot or mild. We had a quesadilla and split the order. There was plenty to eat for the two of us. We had a very large group and they were gracious and accommodating considering we just showed up. There were about 13 of us.

We were looking for a place on the strip for lunch, and the pizza place was too busy, so we tried Mexican instead. We were seated quickly but that was the only thing that happened quickly. We sat in roller chairs that just are not good for young children. Then the service left much too be desired. It took forever... More
