Reasonably priced Mexican cuisine in a small restaurant. Try the Stuffed Sopapilla with Green sauce. The opposite of fancy, but well worth a meal there.

We diverted into Ole Taco today at lunch time instead of going to the intended McDonald's, and were so glad we did! While two of us had Mexican food, a third, who can't eat cheese, settled on a hamburger. All were affordable, and DELICIOUS! The quesadilla came with plenty fresh guacamole for only $5.50, the ground soft shell beef tacos were full of flavor, the chips and salsa, well, nothing wrong with those either. The hamburger was the nice surprise, also full of flavor, on a nice soft bun with lots of crisp lettuce and other veggies. We were too full to eat the fries, but will enjoy them reheated later. Next time we're back in Ruidoso, we'll definitely go to Ole Taco.

The food isn't the greatest the only thing that's worth buying is the salsa and that's it.The service was horrible and the enviroment wasn't cutting it either.But I've been to worst and it wasn't all that bad.

Whenever I go to a Mexcian restaurant in Ruidoso I judge them on their Red Chile Enchilada. The one I had at Ole Taco has been the best so far. The difference between them and all of the rest is the corn tortilla they use to make them. I believe it must be homemade because you could actually taste the corn and it was soft and fluffy not hard and dried out like store bought corn tortillas. Everyone else ordered the Ole Special tacos which they absolutely loved. The inside small clean and understated. It is more of a order at the window take home or eat in the car kind of a place. I am surprised it is not rated higher on here but, people in the know go to Ole Taco.
