La Herradura is simple and good. The atmosphere is plain, but if you want good Mexican food, this is a great option in Artesia. Don't let the outside of the building or the neighborhood dissuade you. Inside you will find true and carefully prepared Mexican food. Filling, tasty, and not greasy. Try it, you'll like it.

My co-worker and I went to this restaurant for dinner after it was suggested by some of the locals. Wow, they were not lying. Great family restaurant, clean and friendly staff. The food was authentic not Tex-Mex with actual shredded beef and chicken. No beer and wine. They also sell Mexican candy at the register, great if you have never... More

This place was wonderful. I love Mexican food (not talking the American version, I mean the real deal) and this was some of the best I've had. It's a family restaurant (looked like mom & grandma were in the kitchen, daughter was waiting tables, fathers/sons were prepping & cleaning) in a very unassuming pre-fab building not far from the big...

This was a very unexpected and highly delightful meal. The chicken in chipotle sauce was absolutely superb and the sopapillas were great. The location and building do a very good job of hiding what is a truly excellent mexican restaurant run by a group of little ladies.

I can't believe this placed had such great ratings. Very unfriendly wait staff with very slow service. Cheese enchiladas were so hot they were nearly uneatable. Chips were the type you buy in a grocery store. Order was wrong with no apology.

We went here both nights we were in town. They were crazy busy. Service was great but slow due to being so busy but worth it. The chipotle pork tacos and burritos were amazing! Awesome chili rellenos too. Super nice people and a very simple atmosphere. Best Mexican food we had on our entire trip all around New Mexico!

Enjoyed some authentic Mexican food. The Rellenos were authentic NM. The service as lacking, however it is much better than La Fonda.
