We didn't get to eat at our favorite place, and 2nd favorite wasn't open either. Salsa & chips were good - salsa spicy, but we like it that way. We had a nice meal - chicken fajita quesadillas and a large 'rita. There were plenty for the 3 of us for our meal! 6 large quesadillas! Service was a little... More

the exterior wouldn't draw you inside but it is has a nice multicolored interior that is pleasing. Most importantly the food is good with them being known for their flavorful fish tacos. Don't walk by this place and miss it as I have in the past. Its worth a visit and easy on the pocket book.

Revisit after a year or so. Still pretty dependable for basic New Mexican style food. Service this evening was good, but can be hit or miss. Have increased their tap beer selections and still do good margaritas. Excellent chili rellenos, especially with hot green chili sauce, but, you need to believe them when they say it's hot. Red sauce is... More

Friday, June 17, 2016, a friend and I arrived in town around 7:30 and drove down to Lucy's for dinner. The hostess sat us immediately. It was not busy at all. She brought us chips and salsa. That was the last of the service we received during our 20 min. visit. None of the bartenders or servers ever acknowledged we... More

Just stopped in for a snack and the Pink Cadillac Margaritas, ended up staying and enjoying a few of both! The nachos were great as well as the house salsa. The Beer was cold and the Margaritas did not lack for tequila content. I would recommend this corner bar & grill for anyone looking to kill a bit of time... More

The food here is not good but it is one of only a couple bars. Your other choices are Quarters or the Irish pub. If you just want to have a couple drinks, this is as good a place as Quarters. The Irish pub has better food and drinks but also more expensive.

I don't want to ever see you in here again" - THIS from the MANAGER of Lucy’s during the lunch hour, June 5, 2016 in Ruidoso, NM. It started when we had a party of approximately 20 the day after my daughter's wedding in Ruidoso and... More

Chips, salsa and queso were very good, as were the margaritas. Special of the day ($2 tacos) were also good. Server was friendly and attentive. It was a nice break from shopping.

Stopped at Lucy's for a quick bite and a margarita. Food came out quickly and hostess and waitress were friendly and attentive. Nothing special or unexpected but ok.
