Good Bar-B-Que. The spicy sauce they have is delicious. Their peach cobbler is heaven, I could go back and eat just that! I recommend this place for sure!

We were driving around Ruidoso trying to find a place to eat. Circle J BBQ is a red building and for some reason drew us in. What a great place. The food was great and the price was reasonable. They have daily specials and the staff were friendly. We will definitely go back when we are in Ruidoso.

Circle J Bar-B-Que is edible but not considered good. The ribs when ordered were taken out of storage area and tasted like they had been sitting in the plastic wrap for a long period of time. The Brisket was tender just lacked in bbq taste. The potato salad was terrible, and that coupled with the high price will keep us from returning.

The service was very friendly. The brisket was among the best I have ever eaten. This is a real down home place.

Stopped there for a quick lunch, really pleasantly surprised with the quality. Very down home. The best coleslaw we've ever had. Delicious brisket too.
