“Who could possibly finish a meal there?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Huge portions....always good for a take-home box. It's nice having a locally owned restaurant that has become a meeting place for locals. The owner sees to it that everyone is pleased.

“Delicious lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

We got there just in time to beat the lunch rush on a Saturday.... .. After 12:15 and you will wait 20 minutes for a table, in or out. We got it all to go to take back to others, but only waited about 10 minutes and we were headed back to our cabin.
Turkey and Swiss, meatloaf and tuna salad sandwiches were all delish!!! Tasty homemade potato salad and pasta salad sides were good too. Great way to start a vacation!!

“Desserts to die for!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

The blue goose has become one of our favorite spots in ruidoso to get a delicious affordable lunch. I always get the chicken salad which is fabulous, and we can't leave without a giant piece of cake. We always have to get a box for it and its lasts us a few days! The owners are great guys and will come chat with you while you enjoy their fantastic food. Overall a very welcoming and enjoyable place to eat!

“Nice place for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

We went to Blue Goose Cafe based on the T/A reviews and were not disappointed. We split a chicken salad sandwich that was quite good. One of us had the creamed chile soup and it, too, was very tasty although I thought the cream was too thick, but that is personal preference. The cole slaw was also very good. The service was good and the prices reasonable. Give it a try.
