For those of you that don't realize this, Jorge and Chef Lupe are brothers. But I'd definitely choose Chef Lupe's over Jorge's for the following reasons: 1. The menu is MUCH LESS COMPLICATED at Chef Lupe's 2. Seating is much more airy and breathable at...More

You might think of driving-on-by because Jorge's looks pretty "basic". Big Mistake. Inside, it all changes. Food is really very, very good. Their service is not just professional and friendly - their staff are just plain ol' nice people. Really enjoy their non-standard, not the...More

By far the best breakfast in town. If you like Menudo, theirs is the best!! Meat was very tender and tasty, and sauce had the perfect blend of sweet and spice. Service is great and food is unmatched in the area.

My family had lunch/supper there and was very please. The cheese and onion enchiladas was so tasty! It's a small place but the cooking makes up for it's lack of size. Awesome food! Would recommend to anyone wanting cheese enchiladas.

Loved the salsa; queso was runny if you like that. Chile relleno was delicious. We did not care for the carnitas quesadillas.

Odd that this place does not come up when you search for Ruidoso restaurants on Tripadvisor. Actually found it on Google as a recommendation. Tried the Carne Asada and it was very good. Came with a grilled pepper, rice and beans, tortillas, guacamole, and tomatoes....More

I had the crispy chile relleno, cheese enchilada and beef taco dinner. Beef taco was excellent. Crispy relleno was burnt. My wife's crispy relleno was perfect. Plenty of parking in the hotel parking location where this restaurant will be found. Service was good. Facilities are...More
