Very popular place to eat, but the choices we have had have not been great. Patty melts are very good, but who goes to a Mexican restaurant for a Patty melt! Our food was fair, Cheese enchiladas had cheese on top of the tortilla, but not inside, very dry and the refried beans were also dry and cold. Not pleased.

......oops guess it is Ruidoso Downs. Great Mexican menu. Great taco salads, chile rellanos, and my favorite: "Camarenos al mojo de ajo." (Shrimp grilled garlic style).

In Ruidoso for the first time. It was recommended by a local giving an area orientation at pinecliff village. My first ever tongue burrito was fantastic. Great food, service and prices! I applaud you, Jorge.

I think the title says it all. It also was affordable, the wait staff was friendly, and they serve beer and wine. It looked to be full of local diners, always a good recommendation for a restaurant.

I gave been there now about 4 times. So far this is the tastiest Mexican food I have had in New Mexico. The chicken enchiladas with red sauce are spectacular. They also have American breakfasts(which I have eaten( & hamburgers(which I haven't eaten). They can thank their supplier for fresh ingredients & excellent cheese. (Same true of the classical Mexican... More

We always eat at Jorge's Café when we are in Ruidoso. We have eaten breakfast as well as lunch. The food is delicious and the service is good. We especially like the green chile sauce they make in house. We have tried most of the menu items and have always been pleased. We highly recommend Jorge's!

Sunday morning and to celebrate my Dad's birthday, we went to Jorge's Café. Everyone had something different: veggie omelet, special: green chili pork and eggs, chorizo and egg burrito. I am happy to report that everyone was delighted with the presentation and flavors. The service was efficient and friendly and the food was very good! No wonder the place is... More

Since we pulled into Ruidoso late on a Sunday evening almost everything was closed, except for Jorge's. Most of the cars on the parking lot were locals, so we decided to give it a try. The enchiladas I had were good and since I am indecisive I had them served Christmas (both red and green chile). The chile was good,... More

I really enjoyed the chicken enchilada special. The red chile was medium heat and a bit gravy-like - but very tasty. Chips and salsa came with the dinner and they were also flavorful - all the food was leaning toward a Tex-Mex style of Mexican food - rather than a traditional Northern New Mexico Mexican plate.
