Great Southwestern Mexican food all made from scratch on premises. Glad I ordered mild. The salsa and chips were fantastic, but the salsa had some real kick. Mouth was on fire, but it tasted great. Reasonalble pricing, good food, all fresh.

We were in Ruidoso for 5 nights and ate dinner 3 times at Jorge's. It was soooo good and soooo inexpensive we couldn't resist. Anything we tried was good. It was pretty tight getting in with a wheelchair, but do-able. It gets crowded sometimes and...More

We saw Jorge's on our drive in to Ruidoso - parking lot was full, so we decided we would try it for dinner one night. We weren't disappointed. We arrived about 5:30 PM and were lucky to get one of the last open tables -...More
