When in Ruidoso, Chef Lupe's is a good place to eat. The food, quantity and price were all palatable.

Love to find these local dives! We were there on a Saturday night about 8ish with a handful of other customers. The service was excellent -- and so was the food. If you are looking for the traditional Tex-Mex cuisine, this is not your place. What you'll find instead is authentic Mexican food -- wonderfully seasoned! I had the chicken... More

Clean, smallish, with heavenly kitchen smells. A few times the waitress has been a bit overloaded. Even the iced tea is good. Generous proportions. Good parking. Nice location for tourism as well.

The place is nothing special but they do provide a variety of nice flavorful breakfast plates to choose from. Again there just ok but better than... More

Went here in the "off-season", so the place wasn't crowded at all. Had Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas that were very good! Not as spicy as when we lived in Albuquerque, but still really good. Typical plating of Enchiladas with rice and beans. Would have been even better with a beer, but I was driving. Atmosphere isn't anything to write home... More

The prices are reasonable. The Pork Chimichanga is delicious but did have too much torilla and could have used a little more pork. The whole meal was excellent though. The place has a nice charm to it.

I along with three other ate here for breakfast 2 days in a row while staying in Ruidoso. I had the standard sausage and eggs the first day and then opted for the Mexican breakfast the second day. I'm not sure what you call it but it was darn good. Rice and beans included and some mighty tasty green chile... More
