Friday, June 17, 2016, a friend and I arrived in town around 7:30 and drove down to Lucy's for dinner. The hostess sat us immediately. It was not busy at all. She brought us chips and salsa. That was the last of the service we received during our 20 min. visit. None of the bartenders or servers ever acknowledged we... More

Just stopped in for a snack and the Pink Cadillac Margaritas, ended up staying and enjoying a few of both! The nachos were great as well as the house salsa. The Beer was cold and the Margaritas did not lack for tequila content. I would recommend this corner bar & grill for anyone looking to kill a bit of time... More

The food here is not good but it is one of only a couple bars. Your other choices are Quarters or the Irish pub. If you just want to have a couple drinks, this is as good a place as Quarters. The Irish pub has better food and drinks but also more expensive.

It started when we had a party of approximately 20 the day after my daughter's wedding in Ruidoso and... More

Chips, salsa and queso were very good, as were the margaritas. Special of the day ($2 tacos) were also good. Server was friendly and attentive. It was a nice break from shopping.

Stopped at Lucy's for a quick bite and a margarita. Food came out quickly and hostess and waitress were friendly and attentive. Nothing special or unexpected but ok.

I really hate writing negative reviews! I can usually find some redeeming qualities somewhere, but sadly not this time! We had driven in from Texas and we're starving, we opted for Lucy's because they advertise that they have the best mexican food in town, this can not possibly be true! We arrived and dud get eaten quickly things went downhill... More

Good Mexican food in Ruidoso. A local favorite. Been going here for years. Don't think they have beer and wine yet. That would be good.

Food is great. They have large monitors to watch sporting events and football games. Server was friendly. The manager was extremely rude to some friends in my party. When the bill arrived, they had different amounts to identical items. One friend in my party said they do this often.
