Thank goodness we looked at the menu on line before heading there. So many delicious choices! Eat outside and enjoy the mountain air. A bit of rain won't affect the flavors.

Came in for late lunch at a very scenic outdoor dinner and the staff was great and he lpful. Had a homemade cheeseburger like in the old days of Dads cooking. Pecan pie ale mode like grandma's. Price was cheap and we will be back.

Truly the best place in Ruidoso. The view from our table was spectacular and the food even better. It'd tucked away off the street and you can't see it unless you know where it's at. We eat here each time. We asked ourselves after breakfast...More

Nestled under the trees and next to the river is this quaint diner. The staff was very attentive, owner veryfriendly, the menu had original local plates- must try the chicken enchiladas in green chile cream sauce-wow! Also, geen chile burger was great, thanks Tina!

My sister and I went to Tina's for breakfast. I had the Migas and my sister had the huevos rancheros with green chili sauce. Both were very good and the service was great. We both had the lavender lemonade which was delicious and very refreshing.

We had lunch at Tina's Cafe, and our only complaint was that we would have gained 50 pounds each if we'd tried all the fantastic-looking desserts. Everyone in the family had a different lunch dish and all four of us thought they were great. We...More
