We read about this gem on TripAdvisor and decided to see for ourselves! We spent the night in Ruidoso on our way to Carrizozo, New Mexico for a speaking engagement and a book signing. What a treat! The food and the service were outstanding!

We arrived on Sunday morning to a full parking lot. As we made our way to the restaurant, we found a rustic cabin with a rear patio overlooking the river. Service was excellent and the biscuits and gravy was delicious . Overall, a fun experience!
