I guess we should have placed our order at the window and eat it in our car but after a day of sightseeing I wanted to sit down. The smell of garbage hit me when I walked in the door and their was trash on every table with flies crawling on them. There was 1 couple waiting for an order... More

We got take out food from here on night while in Ruidoso and the food was very good. The restaurant is small and crowded but can't say enough about the good food.

This is one of those hole in the walls. They have great service and the street tacos are outstanding!

Everything was closed. We were worried that we would go to bed hungry. But then we saw it. A flashing open sign through the rain. We really enjoyed the chile verde burritos! Good salsa. And even the ice was tasty.

The best tacos& taco salad I have ever had! Taco meat was roast beef And not greasy. Every bite was delicious. We went about an hour Before closing and were served delicious freshly prepared food. We will eat there again on this trip.

Excellent Choice for our road trip home out of Ruidoso. We were craving some spicy green chili and they delivered in their spicy green chili burrito. Their house favorite- roast beef tacos- were definitely the best. Yummy! Wish there was one here in Texas because it was the best Mexican/south western food I ever had. My craving for spicy green...

Good, home-style Mexican cooking, but nothing exceptional. My Roast Beef Tacos were good with plenty of tender meat. Guacamole was ok. Husbands Ground Beef Taco and Enchilada Plate was good, too. Rice and beans were again--good, but nothing special. The cook does the serving too, in this small, family business. Food could have been hotter. Salsa was very good, chips... More

Local spot that was recommended highly and after eating there I can see why. Went for lunch with my wife and we both got the 3 taco plate that was the local favorite and it was amazing. They are not skimpy with their servings. Make sure and get the rice. Its really good.
