It was a bit of a drive from Ruidoso Downs however it was worth the extra minutes on the road. Excellent pancakes, omelets and breakfast meats.

This is a must for us when we're in Ruidoso. The food is great and so is the atmosphere. Be prepared for a long wait, though, especially on the weekend. Probably the number one breakfast spot in Ruidoso.
