Food is delicious there, however the service sucks. I once sat down and waited 30 mins to get a drink and i had to stop and ask the waitress for the drink. Her excuse she didn't see me, but yet she helped every table near me even those who just walked in. Every time I go to eat I always... More

This place was hard to find--located in a warehouse-type building in a residential area. Great service began when we called to get directions from our hotel. When we found the restaurant, we were greeted as the couple that needed directions and given a choice of tables. We had some questions about the menu which were answered in detail. We both... More

You have to know how to find "The H" as locals call it, but it's worth it. It is authentic New Mexico flavor at its delicious, not-heart-healthy best. The plates are made one at a time so you know it is as fresh as if it came right out of your Mama's kitchen (if you Mama is a really good... More

Clean with open seating. I absolutely love the tacos, wife likes the enchiladas...both green and red. Appears to be family/friends operation...a bit understaffed but friendly. Food is worth the wait. We find ourselves there more and more.

While stopped to get a flat fixed in Artesia, I asked the man at the tire store where we could find a good breakfast burrito. His recommendation was La Herradura, translation, the horseshoe. It's a few blocks off the beaten path in an area where you would never expect to find a restaurant but you might be sorry you missed... More

The food is good especially the tacos. This restaurant is in a neighborhood that many people did not go into, and has developed from a small house into a nice sized restaurant. The only complaint would be that many times there are not enough servers, and plates come out one at a time so if you have a large group... More

I'm glad I read Tripadvisor because I never would have gone to this restaurant unless I'd seen the reviews. Don't be put off by the exterior. Inside is very clean and the food is excellent. I'd go out of my way to eat here again.

Best mexican food in town! Find it and you will not be disappointed. My favorite is green chicken enchiladas with an egg over easy on top.
