Start out with a shootout on main street. Eat a tasty chuckwagon style meal and sit back to enjoy an evening of great, wholesome sounds from a very talent group of musicians and singers.

Best show and amazing dinner! The musicians were all so talented but the fiddler player was exceptional. We will most definitely come back.

Enjoy going to the Flying J when visiting Ruidoso area. Food and entertainment is always super. Only thing missing this trip was one of Cindy's skits which was a huge disappointment for me! Still a 5 in our book!

The meal is outstanding and there seemed to be seconds if needed, but because of the large evening meal, seconds are rare. The entertainment is also great. Cindy (co-owner) is quite a comic in her skit. The fiddler would be difficult to beat. James (Cindy's...More

We are located at an altitude of 7200 feet and we are open in the evening so we don't have a need for air conditioning. In fact most people bring along la light jacket because these mountain evenings can get cool.
