If you want a true local experience, just show up here for lunch. Try the daily special. Top it off with a piece of pie!

Village Buttery is a stop for lunch almost every trip we make to Ruidoso (we visit on average twice a year). The tomato and basil soup is outstanding, and the selection of sandwiches is great also.

Upon first sip of the Tropical Jasmine Iced Tea my tastebuds were welcomed with a new refreshing flavor. It’s obvious why this quaint restaurant with the family atmosphere is a trademark in the village of Ruidoso. Elliot and his staff take pride in providing their...More
