Some of the best houevos ranchero I have ever eaten. My wife said the same thing about her blueberry pancakes. Great coffee and even better service. Do yourself a favor and go eat there. Small eating area but oh so worth it.

One of the best Mexican food restaurants any where not just Ruidoso. We have been known to drive four hours from Lubbock just to eat breakfast and lunch here.

Love going to Pena's Place. The eggs benedict are my favorite for breakfast and cheese enchiladas with red sauce are my favorite for lunch. Always fresh and delicious!

Pena's is small, but has a lovely outdoor patio which is a great place to have breakfast, as it is shaded from the sun. They allow dogs on the outdoor patio and even allowed us to bring in our own coffee! Service was excellent and...More
