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.

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.
