We're on vacation and decided at the last minute to go here instead of a bbq place in town because we love Mexican food, being from Texas. Bad decision. The food was decent, but the service was as bad as any I've ever had. We definitely will not go back. The management of this place obviously is not on top of things. I would not recommend this place at all.

In the past, we have always made a point to eat at Lucy's at least once when we make it to Ruidoso. This time, it was an overall disappointment. It says on the window on the front of the restaurant that it is the best Mexican food in Ruidoso. We used to think so too, but not anymore.

The last time I tried to eat there it was lunch time on a Wednesday and they were closed. It is convenient for tourists and the food is decent.

We loved this place! We are from Texas and we love mexican food. This place had the best queso and fish tacos I have ever had. The service was great too!

I have NEVER had such a bad experience. It took 30 minutes to get our drinks, 50 minutes for them to take our order and over an hour to get our food. Half of our group didn't even get their food. When we refused to pay for what we did not receive, she became very argumentative and on the verge of yelling at us. Don't bother trying to speak to the manager because he refused to talk with us. And one of the children with us that actually received their food was sick before we could leave. Their best employee is the 11 year old bus boy. STAY AWAY!
