Great place in Ruidoso to find some vegetarian options (vegan, too). The fried avocado is delish... if vegan, ask for no ranch topping. The black bean taco is super yummy, just ask for no cotija cheese for the vegan option. Really good food and friendly...More

Cozy and friendly, with great upscale-casual food. We all had burgers, and they were delicious, with high-quality and unusual ingredients, and service was fast and friendly. Dogs welcome on the patio.

This place is cozy, original menu, good selecon of wines. The staff attentive, food was good but for my taste it needed a little more seasoning, beware of their chiles-hot.

We enjoyed our meal at Grill Caliente. The atmosphere is nice and the food is great quality. Many of the items are spicy so I ask questions when you order if you don't eat spicy food. We will come back when in the area.

Enjoyed some amazing fried green chiles! The mahi mahi tacos were good also. We unfortunately, had to wait a really long time for our meal after the appetizer...an hour. Not sure what was up with that, but the waiter was good and we'll go back.

Bringfido.com said they allow dogs on the patio, but I never know whether they change ownership or the rules, so I always ask before bringing my dog. They were delighted, and immediately found me the perfect place for my Saint Bernard and me to dine...More

Excellent New Mexico food in a casual atmosphere. Prices are reasonable. The Pablano Chicken is fabulous and don't miss ordering the fried green chili rings as an appetizer!

First, I cannot understand why this restaurant is not a 5 star rating. We had eaten at the restaurant a few years ago while in Ruidoso and loved it. I had the filet, my wife had the salmon. Both were both incredible. The salmon is...More

No Farley's or the bar at Ranchers would be better served for you.

I'm not certain about that one. You should probably contact the restaurant about that one.
