“Worth a Trip to Ruidoso”
Reviewed January 15, 2009

We had amazing steaks at Texas Club in June, and have been anxious to get back to Ruidoso, may have to make a special trip just so we can eat there again! The steaks were tender, juicy, flavorful, maybe the best I've ever had. The salad was really very good, and the dessert, oh my! The service was excellent, and the manager was super friendly, stopped by our table to check on how we liked everything. Love the rustic cowboy decor. Be sure to make reservations, and come a little early to find a spot in the too small parking lot. Wonderfu food, service, ambience. Highly recommended any time you are in the area.

Thank Sherry C

“Great Steaks - Small Parking Lot”
Reviewed January 6, 2009

We just returned over New Year's break. The service was good. We ordered Chicken Fried Steak (was one of best ever eaten), and Steaks. The Rib-eyes & Filet was very good. Great Salad & Bake Potatoes. The Rolls that go on the table after you order, are some of the best I've ever had (and I don't like rolls much.)

We ate there 2 out of 3 nights out. Call for reservations & be prepared to park down the street, as the pk'g lot is a bit small vs. the restaurant capacity.

The only complaint I had, is that the server added 18% gratuity and didn't tell us....we almost double tipped her (as she was hoping), which would have been a $60 tip on a $163 food order.

“Great food; poor environmen”
Reviewed August 20, 2008

The food was excellent and the service was great. However, there are many tables in the room and most of these were occupied by larger groups who did not know how to speak in their "inside voice". The result was a very unpleasant environment. If you are looking for a quiet dinner for two with excellent food and service, drive a few miles out of town to Tinnie, NM and have dinner at the Silver Dollar. The food is excellent and so is the environment.

“Great Steaks!”
Reviewed February 22, 2008

While the service is not always great, and some wait-folks don't smile, we always eat here at least once while in Ruidoso. Hubby claims it has the best steak he's had since he can remember.
Everything I've eaten here has been very good!
