James is the nicest guy who works the counter. He gave us the run down of the food....we had to go with the burgers. All fresh made ingredients and meats. The fries were perfect.....Nice homey environment. The place was busy and one of the few places in Ruidoso for dinner that stays open past 5 and wont break the bank!!

Had the New Mexican combo plate just to try things out All was great! My son had the kids burger and was happy with it - it was quite large. I would definitely recommend.

The breakfast is amazing but the wait is not. The place is small and it can be hard to find seats for groups over about 4. If it's just 2 of you, worth checking out. Go out of season and the wait isn't too bad.

I've eaten here many times. Excellent food and plenty of it. Cozy inside tables or a sunny patio deck. Great home style meals for breakfast or lunch.

We too tried this restaurant since it was in walking distance of our hotel. Just stepping inside, the smell of improperly cleaned kitchen and food gone bad was overwhelming. My companion and I looked over the menu and then both of us turned and said "Just can't do it." We left and found a great place down the road. Restaurants... More

Our first time to Ruidoso. Before we came two different friends suggested this restaurant. They were right on target for home cooked food in a friendly atmosphere. We would definitely go back!

Suggested by the hotel we stayed in because we could walk to it. Clean restaurant. Friendly staff, lots of good comfort food.
