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.

Excellent Choice for our road trip home out of Ruidoso. We were craving some spicy green chili and they delivered in their spicy green chili burrito. Their house favorite- roast beef tacos- were definitely the best. Yummy! Wish there was one here in Texas because it was the best Mexican/south western food I ever had. My craving for spicy green...

Local spot that was recommended highly and after eating there I can see why. Went for lunch with my wife and we both got the 3 taco plate that was the local favorite and it was amazing. They are not skimpy with their servings. Make sure and get the rice. Its really good.

We asked for the best fast food in town and this was recommended our hotel. Sweet mom and pop homemade food. The bacon quesadillas rocked. As well as the stuffed puffed sofapapillas.

Small mom and pop operation with dine in or walk up. Food was good and took a while to prepare as it was freshly made.

We've been going here for years, you can't beat the food or price of the combo plate. Two enchiladas, a taco, a relleno beans and rice? DELISH!
