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

went here because we wanted some good Mexican food. What we got was the worst Mexican food and service in ruidoso we have ever had. My wife got the grilled shrimp taco without tomatoes, but they brought it out with tomato and when she complained they would not fix it. I had the the chicken taco with a crunchy homemade... More

We tried Lucy's because it was one of the few restaurants on the main drag open for supper. Chicken fajita enchiladas were tasteless and beef tacos just ok. Runny salsa (if you want to call it salsa) not too exciting. Won't bother to return!

Several local friends recommended Lucy's & said to get a Burrito(??). Great choice & we ate until we were miserable ! Went back twice & everything we had was good every time including the Margaritas. Looking for Southwest/Mexican food - This is the place !

Family went for dinner. Not the best customer service but, also not horrible. Chips were stale and salsa too runny. Husband had fish tacos. They were good. I had the red cheese enchiladas, which had no flavor. I've had better. Overall, this restaurant is not on my list on my future ruidoso trips.

Both were home made and fresh from the kitchen yummy! We had breakfast there every morning we were in town (4 days). My husband likes more traditional "american"... More

We chose Lucy's despite the negative reviews because it was conveniently located and we could walk from the condo rather than get out on a crowded holiday weekend. We were so glad we did!! It was a busy Saturday evening but we were seated quickly despite the large number of tables already filled. Service was prompt and friendly. Food from... More

We went for a mid-afternoon snack and drink. I have been to this place several times over the years. I love their queso with green chilies! However, no one ever waited on us. We had to go up to the bar to get drinks. Their HUGE coronarita was yum though! Maybe we caught them on a short handed day.
