Someone at a local hotel recommended Jorge's restaurant. It was a good recommendation- the food was delicious. I had the fish tacos, my daughter had chicken tacos- which was not on menu, and my other daughter had chicken enchiladas. The only downside is that they...More

There are better places to eat mexican food in the area to eat. Don't waste your time if you are around for just the day.

I found this place quite ordinary. The service was fine and prompt. But the enchilada sauce was too mild for me. Good salsa. If the locals think this is great Mexican food, they need to look elsewhere for other choices in Ruidoso.

Jorge's is a small local restaurant that specializes in Mexican food. I followed our host's lead and ordered the pork, green chili stew with two eggs, hash browns and flour tortillas. Delicious! My husband ordered eggs with chorizo, hash browns and tortilla. Good but not...More
