Great Lemon Margarita and Good Food

We always take the family to Jorge's while in Ruidoso. It is very cost effective and the food and drinks are good. They do not have a liquor license so the margaritas are made from wine. They serve both beer and wine. It is tucked away about 1/10 of a mile from the Walmart there. Service is... read more

This restaurant was recommended by a woman at Pena's Place (as they close at 2pm on Saturdays). We were excited to go because it is the #1 rated restaurant on TripAdvisor. The building itself is small and nothing very special. There was a language barrier with the servers. Our server never once checked our drinks or asked if we needed... More

Anytime someone asks me where to eat when visiting Ruidoso, I recommend Jorge's best local flavor in town. Small so hard to fit large groups but best place for couples to go and find anything yo could think of. From patty melts to my favorite the Mexican burger.

After a terrible time at Denny's we needed to find another breakfast choice. I reluctantly followed my husband into Jorge's. It was excellent. There coffee, service, and food was great! I would eat here again when back in this area.

When I asked for a local to recommend a restaurant I should have issued a warning statement, "Be advised I'm from Texas so I know what good Mexican food tastes like." Since I didn't they couldn't know, when they suggested Jorge's, the standard by which it would be judged. Good news first: The service was impeccable with a friendly, attentive... More

I love New Mexican cuisine, so when this restaurant was recommended by a local, we immediately tried it. First, the salsa. My husband, who likes milder chiles than me, thought it was Pace picante. It did have a bottled taste, and was very mild. I had chicken enchiladas (with both red and green), and neither had much flavor. My husband... More
