Are here after a day of mountain biking so big appetite. Very good service. Chips and salsa fresh and tasty. Beef and cheese enchiladas with red sauce also very good. They do not skimp on fillings or sauce.

We have been there twice with groups of people. Not one person in any groups like the food. We have no why the hype on this restaurant. There are too many good restaurants in ruidoso to settle for this one.

The homemade salsa good, the green Chile sauce was fresh and delicious. If you go away hungry it's your own fault because the serving sizes are perfect. The staff was helpful... More

Tasty grilled chicken habenera for me and green chilli enchiladas for my wife. Iced draft and on the rocks marqurita would have been better enjoyed if our seating was in a warmed part of the restaurant.

Really consistent quality. Love the salsa and chips. If you like it hotter, order the salsa verde sauce.
