“Hand's down best BBQ in all of New Mexico. Only thing close to this good is Franklin BBQ in Austin, TX. There are no other rivals. Try the sliced brisket and loaded potato salad. Inside tip: ask for burnt ends. Their butchers will know what you mean.”

“beautiful, scenic drive from Ruidoso. Cloudcroft is 8000 ft in elevation and quite a bit cooler. Nice little downtown shopping area as well. The Lodge at Cloudcroft is a must see. Nice restaurant, golf, and spa.”
