Visiting during the week in Ruidoso it can be difficult to find local food open after 6pm mom-wed so we found ourselves at Jacks. Happy we did. Daniel was quick to get with us although we could see he had many tables. He was great throughout the whole meal. One of us is vegan so it was awesome to find out they have a black bean burger although it is not advertised. They have mushroom cap burgers also. The boomers and onion straws are great and the buffalo sauce tastes like buffalo sauce.

Delicious, unique burgers and great service! I got the Regulator burger (had tater tots, maple syrup and bacon on it - YUM!) and my husband got the Dirty Dave (double patty with green chiles and cheese) and thought it was awesome! We also got the fried green chile strips as a starter and sweet potato fries. Paired with some tasty beers, it made for a great casual dinner on their patio! We will definitely come back next time we're in Ruidoso.

Three words: Bloody Mary bar! If you order a Bloody Mary, you get a trip to the bar with all the accoutrements, including bacon! The burgers are good with some interesting takes... We all enjoyed our burgers! The fries were a little burned. Our waitress, Angel, was very sweet and attentive! Cute place. Clean. Ate on patio. Nice breeze. Food came out fairly quickly.

Deep fried Anaheim pepper strips were AMAZING! Billy the Kid Burger was pretty good too! Waiter messed up on our order and didn't apologize, otherwise 5 stars for sure! My son ordered plain wings and they came out with sauce. When we asked about it the waiter said he didn't order it that way, but interestingly my son was never asked for a specific sauce out of the 5 or 6 different sauces they offer.

Came here because of extremely poor customer service at another restaurant. Our waitress was so sweet & checked in on us frequently. Wonderful customer service! And the mozzarella sticks were delicious!


Don't be fooled by the tourist crowd at this restaurant. We ate here recently based on the reviews thinking it would be worth a try. We were very disappointed! The Hamburger meat was firm and tasted gritty and of very poor quality. The fries and string onions were very greasy and cold. There was nothing we liked about our meal. To top it off, they charged us a service fee to use a credit card which they never told us about. Needless to say we will not return.

Food was really good, great burgers, the fries were really good. I recommend the fried long green hatch chilie appetizer with ranch dressing. Yum. I loved it so much that I forgot to take more photos, too busy eating. ?

Great burger joint. Lots of speciality burgers, or build your own with tons of options. Also an extensive beer list and sweet potato fries. Burgers are big and juicy, well prepared and delicious. Service is pretty good and the front porch, open air seating area has a great view. Well worth a visit.

I saw burger and a brew on the sign and went in. Amazing bartender (Sheyna) and amazing beer selection. Best I've seen in New Mexico so far. Very comfortable place with good burgers. Highly recommended

We got our order To Go. The chili con quistador was DELICIOUS. Easily the best burger we have had while on vacation in Ruidoso. Probably even in the top 5 best burgers I've ever had. Would absolutely order it again but also wish we were here longer for me to try other burgers on their menu as well. The fries were just decent but admittedly that is likely because we did get our food to go and weren't piping hot and fresh after the 10minute drive back to our cabin. If you are craving a burger you can't go wrong here!

We stopped for lunch en route to a local camp ground for the weekend. The atmosphere is a great draw, as the restaurant is nestled in the forest, surrounded by aromatic pine trees. The QR menu had a nice array of burgers and other plates. They offer burger combinations which makes it easy. I opted for the Billy the Kid burger which was yummy. The best part- they offer sweet patato fries! Overall, the place has a cottage type feel, with a full bar, the food was good and service was polite and fast. I'll definately put this on my list gor next time I drive through. And don't forget to check out their bathroom themed art by the restroom.

Saturday, July 10, 2021 - Large family meal, 6 adults + 4 kids (4-10yrs) A couple from our group had already eaten here and recommended it. We stopped in 4:00pm, it was busy. Adults at one table, kids at another. Ordering took a bit. Delivery a long time. My hamburger was ok. They brought the wrong order for the kids. Probably won't return.

First time I went in with a bunch of friends. The service was great and food was really solid. The second time we ordered pickup and the food was just not good. We will give it another shot soon and see how that goes.

We stopped at this local joint when we drove into town to visit. We were seated quickly and served without delay! The waiter was polite, informative and attentive. The burgers were delicious and filling!

Brand new to Ruidoso and first time at Anaheim Jacks, and WOW fiord and service were great!! Had the green chili strips for starter and we couldn't stop eating. Chili strips were excellent and not too chili hot! We both had burgers and they were awesome. So filling we brought half burgers home along half of the sweet potato fries. Will enjoy eating for dinner also! Will try to return before we leave Ruidoso!
