Awesome service with authentic food

We had the combination plate which gave us a fine sampling of the great food offered. The side dishes are a must especially the squash. Salsa and chile sauces are hot but flavorful. Inexperienced chile eaters might need sour cream. Try the flan/brownie for dessert! Server Yogi was friendly... read more

We had the combination plate which gave us a fine sampling of the great food offered. The side dishes are a must especially the squash. Salsa and chile sauces are hot but flavorful. Inexperienced chile eaters might need sour cream. Try the flan/brownie for dessert! Server Yogi was friendly, gracious and attentive. We would go back again and again!

Most salsas don't have enough spice or flavor. La Casita nails them both. Guacamole was good too. Chili Rellenos were great. Peppers were perfectly done.

The food was excellent. My chili relleno was excellent. Got mine with Red and Green sauce. Both were very good. The guacamole and salsa were outstanding. I like spice so the salsa was perfect for me. The squash vegetable mix is a must have if available. Waitress helped everyone with the right selection.

Nothing to complain about. The place was nice enough, exactly what I was expecting, the servers very nice and the gorditas were awesome. Two of us ate for under $25 and enjoyed the yummy homemade salsa. I will recommend this place and will certainly be back.

Great service by Luis and had a side dish I haven't had since growing up. Fideo. So good! Bought a pint to take home.

Authentic New Mexican food located in an older residetail historic area of Las Cruces. It might be considered a Diner, Drive-in and Dive. Great New Mexican food and friendly staff with moderate prices. Great for a couple or family. Best for breakfast or lunch or an early dinning experience. Be sure to try the Red or Green Enchiladas.

Being a native of San Diego California I have eaten guacamole at probably over 500 restaurants. The guacamole at Las Casita Café is the best guacamole I've ever had. They also have very good huevos rancheros and quite spicy green chili sauce. The service was impeccable, and the price is on believable! If I ever make it to southern New... More

Salsa was awesome and spicy. Great beans and Flauta. Guacamole was fresh and flavor full. Chips were store bought so fresh homemade chips would have been better.
