We have been coming to this restaurant for many years. It seems that the original owner passed away and the brothers and sisters of the owner have taken over. In their wisdom they have changed rules that seem to charge more money to the patron. The food is not quite the quality it has been. We won't be back again!

We have eaten at this Cattle Baron numerous times over the years and have eaten at some of their other locations as well. I was really disappointed that the interior has been allowed to deteriorate and the food & service along with it. Hope they'll get this taken care of soon. The only saving factor is the salad bar which is always great. Not sure if I'll go there again.

We have eaten here several times in the past and our most recent experience didn't change our opinions. Salad bar is unkempt with too many kids picking around. Dressings don't seem to be cold enough. Steaks are no better than average.

Cattle Baron is a safe choice when traveling to Ruidoso. It's clean with a relaxing atmosphere. They have an excellent salad bar with lots of choices. Their steaks don't have a ton of flavor and I consider it a bad mark if I have to use steak sauce just to get some flavor. They do have several different choices to suit everyone's taste. It is a little pricey for the quality but overall not a bad choice.
