Easy to find. Portions to fit every need including the kids. Large out door seating area and large sturdy tables inside. If it's busy you may be sharing a table which can be fun. Chicken, pork, beef, & sausage are available in a variety of forms. Choices of sides include baked beans, corn on the cob, potatoes, mac & cheese,... More

Driving back home from Ruidoso and looked for a new place to eat and this had great reviews so we stopped to have lunch and it was great. Strongly recommend and well worth it. Restaurant was clean it has a nice rustic interior and bathrooms were exceptionally clean. Friendly staff.

We travel 3 1/2 hours to visit Ruidoso and every time make it a point to have at lease 1 meal at Can't Stop Smoking BBQ. Never been disappointed with flavors or service!

Some of the best BBQ I have laid a lip on. Tender meat and tangy sauces, that you add yourself. Excellant service and great cobbler. Good portion size and did I mention the cobbler? Yum Yum!!

Decided to stop for a early dinner and so glad we did. We both had the brisket and it was fantastic. Also had the blackberry cobbler which was delicious. A stop for sure if you are traveling through. We will be back!

The BBQ chicken was wonderful but could have been more done....the meat did not fall off the bone and I had some trouble pulling it off with the plastic ware. I really LOVED the sauce, the classic...

This is a habit you won't mind having...eating great smoky BBQ in a log cabin atmosphere with views of Benson Ridge in the distance. Alamogordo, not a place one hears of as being a cuisine friendly environment. But, in the drift of white sands is this oasis of smoked meats, creative side dishes, and deserts that put grandma's home baked... More
