After reading the reviews, I had to try it, especially since it is very close to my new residence in Ruidoso Downs. What a let down! I ordered the Combo Plate, hoping it would not be more than I could eat. Not to worry, it came with a tiny soft taco, a little chili reyeno and an equally puny enchilada.... More

Every time we are going to anywhere near Ruidoso, we find a reason to stop by Disco Taco for lunch. Growing up in East LA as a kid, I can safely say I know Sonoran style Mexican cooking. Disco Taco does it in a way that takes me back 40 years. Clean, fresh, simple and honest are the best ways... More

Tortas were good.. Staff was very nice! Rest of the food was bland but not bad. I would come back again for the tortas and Mexican Coke

Mostly a la carte Mexican items made to order ("We are not a fast food restaurant--please allow time"-Menu). Tacos, burritos, tortas. I ordered a chicken burrito and received chips with a very hot (great!) green sauce followed by a burrito that required a fork, filled with just grilled shredded chicken with bits of tomato, onion, and green peppers--delicious. If I... More

Greasy, legit Mexican food. Lot of locals and local flavor, very much not a chain, actually kind of dingy, not particularly good or fast service, adjust your expectations accordingly and enjoy the experience

This is one of the Mexican places in the area. Authentic and down to earth. This is one of the places that the locals frequent, and for good reason. Step out of the race track and get c a real Mexican meal.

Food was hot and fresh. Greasy but hey, it's tacos! Good chips. Driven by this place for years and never stopped. Figured it had to be good since stores and restaurants come and go rapidly in Ruidoso. Glad we finally tried it.

I use to come here when I was younger and the food was always fresh and tasted delicious. When I came here recently I believe the manager served us, old dude with an accent, he was friendly at first. He served us chips and salsa. The salsa is now served in dog bowls. Yes that's right, a dog bowl. Metal... More

Food was over priced and did not taste fresh. Extremely greasy and the meat was rancid. There were a dozen stray cats hanging around outside which was a little weird.
