They don't have a sign so don't drive by. It is also off the highway on the old road. The best Mexican food in the area. Service was great and can't wait to come back again.

Thank William B

Went with 3 other couples. Service was good. Food was excellent the hot sauce is extra hot so you may want to take your own.. ( we go often is how I know this) I had to put July as when we go but we do go at least once a month maybe more.

The turn to The Old Road Restaurant is located across from the Mescalero Community Center and tribal offices. Closer to Tularosa than Ruidoso, there is a small blue sign on each side of Hwy 70. Customers are a mix of locals, bikers and tourists. The Green Chile Cheeseburger is probably worthy of 3 1/2 stars but the fantastic customer service, low prices and off-the-beaten-path atmosphere make The Old Road a solid 4 stars. Cash only!

The food is perfection and the waitstaff can't be beat. This is worth a drive from any direction!
I can't get the place out of my mind, so I'm going back very soon.

The restaurant is easier to find now, because in each direction on Hwy 70 there is a dark blue sign with white lettering that reads "Old Road Restaurant" several hundred feet before the turn onto Old Road.

Food and service were both very good. We did not sit on the balcony but enjoyed a beautiful view from the small room on the south side of the building.

As noted in another review, bring cash, as credit and debit cards are not accepted. (The other review also says only local checks taken.)
