Did not Meet Expectations

A local at the Memorial Medical Center recommended this particular Los Compas at this location. I tried the combination plate and my wife tried the taco plate. We were both disappointed as the food was mediocre at best. We often eat at Si Senor's which is nearly directly across Lohman avenue. There... read more

This restaurant has three locations in Las Cruces, and we've been only to the Commerce Drive location, on several occasions. There are many Mexican restaurants in this area, but most are able to distinguish themselves in one way or another, and we found this one to be this way. We like going here because it is quiet and has a... More

I stopped in this restaurant for a Corona and soft tacos several times while in Las Cruces. Fresh and delicious lunch! It is not a fancy restaurant but who cares. It is very a charming place and an opportunity to dine with the locals.

The was by far one of the worst Mexican meals I've had in Las Cruces. As I had never been in before I ordered the Mexican Plate with taco, cheese enchilada, flauta, chile rellenos, rice and beans. The beans had a nice smooth flavor and was the best dish on the plate. To begin, everything was lukewarm and each item... More

Visited the Commerce location the first time for lunch last Saturday. We were seated right away and had water and menus just as quickly.The salsa for the chips is possibly one of the best in town. I had an excellent red enchilada (cheese) & beef taco. Restaurant red chile can be disappointing to a local native who grew up on... More

the mole plate special on Tuesdays lunch time is my favorite. The mole is so tasty and very well served. Too bad they don't have this plate other days of the week.

What a bipolar experience at this restaurant (on Commerce). Went in one time with a co-worker, took forever to be noticed and seated, and another eternity to have orders taken. The waitress seemed to be either sick or on a "long trip somewhere" (and shouldn't have been working in either case). The appetizer chips truly looked like they were someone's... More

Green chile bowl is real great. Reminds one of green chile stew. Beans, chile meat and green sauce taste are out of this world.
