Ate here this morning. Service was fast and friendly. Prices were fair based on the portion size of the meal. Will definitely return on our next visit to Ruidoso. Neat place inside with art pieces for sale too boot. Staff was very gracious. Even brought a coffee carafe to the table which was a plus in my book!

If you got to Ruidoso you must eat at the Log Cabin for breakfast! Every thing is fresh, cooked to order and delicious!

Our breakfast today was a major disappointment: We're locals, and prices are $2-3 more here than other Ruidoso or Alto restaurants. You can't get lunch items at breakfast. Even though the American Express Web site lists this as a place which accepts AMEX, today, the manager tartly refused to honor it (we'd just used AMEX to pay here last month!)... More

Log Cabin has been an excellent breakfast stop for many a year, sadly no more. Their prices are the highest in town. A 2 egg breakfast with meat is over $9, two to three dollars higher than nearby Alto Cafe and El Paraiso, both of which I highly recommend and both take American Express. Log Cabin is listed on the... More

Be prepared to wait, but it is great food. Log cabin style decor. I go for waffles but the oatmeal and chicken fried steak were very well done. Delicious delicious delicious!

First off had a wait which isn't a big deal; until we found out the reason. The wife and I are both prior servers so we understand the line of work and so forth. This place really only has maybe two servers who knew what was going on and were able to multitask. We sat for ten minutes after being... More

Amazing breakfast. Nice and big before you hit the slopes. Excellent friendly service. Omelettes and pancakes and all super good. Would highly recommend this restaurant. The ambiance of the log cabin is great too

Very good/fast and efficient service. Order was hot when served and correct! Many options for breakfast. I personally wasn't a fan of the green chili sauce. Glad I asked for it on the side. Hubby had salsa, yummy and 'warm'.

We always try eat breakfast here during our visits. In fact, that's the only meals we've ever eaten here. They serve hot food that is always high quality and prepared quickly. You will know that the food is good by the crowd that it draws, so be prepared to wait.

This place is busy. Wait 30 minutes for a table , wait 30 minutes for the food. The staff are working their trails off. Its nonstop mayhem. The reason - good home style breakfast. Large tasty servings are the norm. Fresh coffee and plenty of it. My breakfast skillet was tasty but the eggs were not hot. My wife's grits... More
