A nice surprise in a neighborhood setting

Good Mexican food at very reasonable prices. If it matters to you, they don't have a liquor license, but try one of their fabulous desserts instead!

La Casita was definitely top two of the restaurants (the other one being Double Eagle) we ate at on our trip to Las Cruces. We came here for lunch, so we didn't try any alcoholic drinks, but the food was amazing. We had a mix of breakfast and lunch foods amongst the group and it was unanimous that it was... More

After reading all the positive reviews on TripAdvisor a couple of months ago we drove by their location but decided it looked too seedy so did not stop. The other night, after reading TripAdvisor once again, we decided we had to try their fare. What a disappointment. The restaurant interior is clean but in dire need of a remodel. The... More

La Nueva Casita is the real name. We passed right in front without knowing because of wrong name. Hope TripAdvisor corrects this soon. Came here since TripAdvisor ranked it #1. Service was good and food was tasty. Their salsa was awesome. But will have to try other Mexican restaurants too before agreeing with ranking.

After a long, hot, frustrating day of getting out tourism mostly wrong, we found ourselves hungry and grumpy and utterly incapable of making a group decision on a dinner choice. Until the youngest in our family spotted La Casita, which we had decided to drive past to check out before committing. "That place looks NICE!", exclaimed young Max. After a... More

First off, the place is called la nueva casita. And to be fair to the morons that rated it one star, it took me a long time to really like this place. I think you have to be here a long time to appreciate the flavors. I really enjoy the chile relleno omelette and highly recommend. one great thing about... More

This restaurant was just what we needed after driving for a long time. The staff treated us as though they had know us for years. The food was served very quickly and was hot and delicious. The salsa was amazing. I never had to ask for anything. This will definitely be our Las Cruses spot for Mexican food. I had... More

Although we didn't get as far as eating here, I find it unbelievable that this restaurant could be rated as the #1 eatery in Las Cruces. We grabbed the recommendation off the phone and went for an early dinner. It is a neighborhood place and for all I know has good food, but we didn't get that far. We were... More
