Chef Lupes has the best breakfast in Ruidoso. It has a flavor that I get nowhere else. It has the best price for a sit down breakfast and never has a wait. There are trendier, fancier, and more expensive spots, but the Big O special...More

This is a great little cafe. They serve all types of food here with the focus on Mexican dishes. I like the fact that you can get authentic mexican food and not just tex mex. The atmosphere was comfortable and the food was great.

Clean, smallish, with heavenly kitchen smells. A few times the waitress has been a bit overloaded. Even the iced tea is good. Generous proportions. Good parking. Nice location for tourism as well.

Ruidoso, NM is know for the scenery, not their food. It is very hard to find a good place to eat in this town. With that said, Chef Lupes is my choice for breakfast. The place is nothing special but they do provide a variety...More

Went here in the "off-season", so the place wasn't crowded at all. Had Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas that were very good! Not as spicy as when we lived in Albuquerque, but still really good. Typical plating of Enchiladas with rice and beans. Would have been...More
