Fresh, home made, tasty dinner. I enjoyed the spinach artichoke enchiladas - sauce was smooth, light and delicious. The avocado tostada was fresh and a nice side. Overall, excellent stop for dinner. This foodie enjoyed it!

After reading the TripAdvisor reviews I was expecting something really great. We had the Chicken Pipian Verde & the Chicken Mole. Both were good but not great. This is an old drive-in which has very limited inside seating, and is not the easiest place in the world to find.

We trusted trip advisor and were not let down. We had the fish taco platter, spinach artichoke enchiladas and potato tacos. Although the enchilada was a little spicy for this gal from the Midwest, all was great. My husband at first drove by not believing this was the place. You even have to get key for in the back restroom.... More

Wow! From the friendly owner to the huge chimichanga, it was a great experience. Don't let the fast-foodish exterior fool you. I got the barbecue pork with habanero sauce that was great. Two others got the macho chimichanga that was huge and delicious; one spicy, one not so much. My wife got soft chicken tacos that were excellent as well.... More

Everything is very good but the chicken mole is out of this world. Fish tacos are very tasty, self serve from window so your food comes quickly and is freshly plated. Try it!

Stopped by passing through Las Cruces. I'll admit to being concerning by appearances of both the outside and ordering area. However, the owner was most pleasant, took our orders, offered a bowl of "welcome" soup, and showed us the dining area. Soup was a mildly spicy noodle broth and very good. My huevos rancheros were excellent, but my wife proclaimed... More

Went here based on the reviews from a cross country trip and was not disappointed. I was a little worried about the outside appearance, but stayed anyway. Inside was nice and clean, so that was nice. Prices were great and the food was comparable to the taco trucks you'd find in California, so pretty good imo. I had the carnitas... More

If you are interested in Mexican food and not the typical border food, this is the place. My wife and I each had a house special, I would order either meal again. The atmosphere is basic Las Cruces Mexican but the service is excellent even though it is a look up menu. We have gone to many of the Mexican... More

I'm the kind of guy who can take or leave Mexican food. I just don't like spicy food. yelp reviews looked great so what the heck. oh wow - they start you off with complimentary house soup that is delicious with an ever so slight kick. I had the chicken and potato Taco's and cheese quesadilla. oh wow! simply delicious.... More
