We love to eat at Alto Cafe...the food is always good, a good price and good portion! The owners and waitresses are very friendly and the service is great!!! They have some of the best "Green Chili Sauce" anywhere! Good breakfast, serving great pancakes or a "Naked Burrito!" (Burrito w/out the tortilla smothered in Green Chili Sauce, or other breakfast foods! Oh, and they have awesome Steak Fingers, Chicken Fried Steak and Chicken Fried Chicken and other fares such as BBQ! I recommend them highly!!! Sible Tharp, Las Cruces, NM

Looking for a different place to eat and found this place. Small and quaint but some great home cooking. Food looked and tasted like it was freshly prepared ( not packaged). I decided to have the Buffett. Chicken fried chicken with mashed potatoes green beans. This was very good food. The wait staff was very attentive and interacted with the customers. I will go back again. Open seven days a week

We were past lunchtime & saw this little place so we stopped. It was about 15 minutes before closing. The waitress was very friendly, did not mention it was almost time to close & did not act "put upon" because it was going to make it past closing time when we finished. We both had chicken-fried steak. We got our meal promptly. It was good with plenty of gravy. And then she brought strawberry cake that was part of the special (we didn't know we had dessert coming). It was delicious. Our ice teas were good also. Definitely a place we would eat at again next time we are in Ruidoso area.

Waitress wasn't welcoming. Food was average. Homemade biscuits soggy. Butter not served on table. Had to find someone for a glass of water. Hot tea was as described by previous reviewer-not good. Searched for waitress to pay our bill.
