By far the best breakfast in town. If you like Menudo, theirs is the best!! Meat was very tender and tasty, and sauce had the perfect blend of sweet and spice. Service is great and food is unmatched in the area.

My family had lunch/supper there and was very please. The cheese and onion enchiladas was so tasty! It's a small place but the cooking makes up for it's lack of size. Awesome food! Would recommend to anyone wanting cheese enchiladas.

Loved the salsa; queso was runny if you like that. Chile relleno was delicious. We did not care for the carnitas quesadillas.

Odd that this place does not come up when you search for Ruidoso restaurants on Tripadvisor. Actually found it on Google as a recommendation. Tried the Carne Asada and it was very good. Came with a grilled pepper, rice and beans, tortillas, guacamole, and tomatoes. The chips and salsa appeared to be made there. They had fajitas on special the... More

I had the crispy chile relleno, cheese enchilada and beef taco dinner. Beef taco was excellent. Crispy relleno was burnt. My wife's crispy relleno was perfect. Plenty of parking in the hotel parking location where this restaurant will be found. Service was good. Facilities are older and probably was a different restaurant in the past, guessing.

We enjoyed the breakfast, but they started cleaning the floors while we were eating. Can't handle the odor of cleaning solvents when I'm eating. Prices were good, but we had to get the attention of the waitperson several times.for coffee and salsa.

Went to Jorge's Cafe for dinner with my family. I ordered the chicken enchiladas with green sauce, rice, and beans. I was unable to finish my plate but I will say that the enchiladas were very good. My kids ordered hamburgers and my husband ordered a plate that had a tamale, chile relleno, and a chicken enchilada with red sauce,... More

This is an awesome and quaint Mexican food restaurant. They serve breakfast to dinner. I had the Combo Fajitas. They were awesome. The skirt steak was shaved very thin and had a great sear. Very friendly staff.
