Nice surprise This restaurant is in an unimposing, small building. Almost looks like one room when you drive up. At 2:00PM we weren’t expecting to find many places open. Inside we were immediately greeted by a waitress who became our server. Chips and salsa came immediately. The menu was great-breakfast, lunch and dinner all day. The food was fresh and... More

We decided to have dinner here based on other reviews. Its pretty much a gamble when it comes to restaurant reviews anyway. We were the only ones there at 6:00 in the evening. The food here wasn't bad but wasn't great either. Most of the local restaurants here are probably similar in that they are just average. I had the... More

Simple, clean, and excellent food. We had breakfast burritos with a homemade white wine sauce. The salsa was also excellent and homemade. If you want to get away from the plethora of chain restaurants, I highly recommend this low key option.

We selected this restaurant because it came recommended. We were certainly not led astray! My wife ordered the seafood enchiladas and I had the carnitas platter. Our server, Anahi, was very courteous and brought these two piping hot delicious meals out in short order. We had also been munching on their homemade chips and dip, which also deserve mention: the... More

Having read the various reviews tried here for lunch. It was very quiet but it was 1.30 pm so perhaps people had eaten and gone. I had a special that was tasty but could have been spiced up a little (strange to say as nm food is usually spicy) wife had the fluatas which were disappointing but she says the... More

I grew up in Tucson and I know Mexican food. I have lived in Cloudcroft for 8 years and this restaurant (for the price and taste) is by far the best Mexican food I've eaten in the State of New Mexico. Their salsa is incredible, everything is made to order, so yes, it takes some time people... this is not... More

Waitstaff seems to be lacking. Can't review the food because it hasn't come. Ordered a tostado and enchilada - was just told there was only one cook working. On a Sunday too!

I stop here on my way through Alamo on occasion and have always enjoyed the tasty dishes they prepare. Being from El Paso, I know good Mexican cooking and this place has it at very reasonable prices. Conveniently located right on White Sands Blvd (Hwy 54/70).

Had very bad service, took over 30 mins to get drink, waitress never brought maragrita to one person. Food was very forgetful. Not terrible but not as good as it should be in New Mexico. Only plus was that the salsa was pretty tasty.
