We don't get a chance to eat there often but when we do the Nachoes are a must have. There is enough to make a meal for two.

Yummy Mexican Food! Authentic and fast! They have a very interesting Queso that you must try. And surprising they have some of the best tarter sauce for their fish tacos. Its soooooooo good! i don't drink that much but my family has told me that they have the best Margarita's anywhere. A must try in Ruidoso.

Had the most basic Mexican food one can order and it was just not worth the money. I don't drink but people seem to like their magaritas

Confident about a finding tasty food along a busy st, found this gem. A friendly host greeted us. Our server was friendly & introduced herself, she was conscious of making sure we were ok. There was no kid menu instead ordered regular burgers for kids complete w/ side dish with a smiley face; kids sucked them down, guess they were... More

We usually have a meal at Lucy's whenever we visit Ruidoso, mainly for the Margaritas. The food has never been great, but on this last visit, it was really subpar. We ordered flat green chile enchiladas, and were served three tortillas stacked with absolutely nothing between the layers, and about a thimble full of chicken on top, covered with cheese.... More

The margaritas here are really, really, good! We like top shelf tequila and don't like the premade mixes. The bartender was super friendly and the margaritas were not only delicious... More
