Hey everyone, just a quick rant on why TripAdvisor and other ranking sites cant be trusted. It turns out that we have once again been targeted on TripAdvisor by someone affiliated with another restaurant here in Cloudcroft...... Yes they have been reported and I expect that the review will be taken down since this violates their guidelines. This person wrote us a one star review and turned around and wrote their self a five star review. What makes it worse is that this is not the first time this has happened. When caught doing this repeatedly the business is supposed to be red flagged as not trustworthy, we will see. It is unfortunate that anyone anywhere can make up reviews and that they will be published, and unfortunately it happens all the time..... In the past TripAdvisor was forced to admit by ASA "The Advertising Standards Agency" that not all their reviews were trustworthy or real.... We would recommend Frommer's, Fodor's, AAA etc. and other publications over any ranking site..... We do however want to stress that we do appreciate every one of our friends and customers and do appreciate the positive reviews they give us on TripAdvisor and other ranking sites as well!!!!!!

OCEC has received notification that scammers are calling some of our customers demanding payments or their electric service will be disconnected. They are advising members to call a number that begins with an 888 prefix for further instructions to make payment. When you call the number back, it does appear that you are calling OCEC, when in fact you are not. Making a payment to this number could give these scammers access to your financial information.

OCEC does make phone calls to customers with past due accounts giving a final date for payment before disconnection, but will never demand immediate payment or ask you to wire money.

If you receive one of these calls you believe to be a scam, or if you question the validity of a payment, please call our office immediately at 1-800-548-4660.

How Many Likes Can We Get For These Heros? What an honor it was to spend the evening with Jimmy Moore and Fausto. Fausto is a Dutch Shepherd and Jimmy is his handler. Fausto is an Explosive Detection Dog. Together they spent five years in Afghanistan protecting our troops. Fausto is credited for sniffing out forty seven bombs while in Afghanistan. Fausto and Jimmy have saved many lives and I salute them both for their service. Scrolling through the pictures you will see Fausto autographing a picture for us. Anyone that has ever been in Big Daddy's knows that Darla and I have been very fortunate to have met and collected many autographs and memorabilia from celebrities over the years. From autographed guitars, sports memorabilia and pictures of and with some famous people. Nothing has been more heartwarming than being able to sit down with Jimmy and Fausto listening to their story! Thanks again to both for their service.
