I was staying at the HIE next door and didn't want to travel far for Mexican. I was very happy that we stopped here. Very good Mexican food and great happy hour/drink specials. Good margaritas and a good selection of beers on tap. I had the combo and was very happy. I will be coming back here on my next... More

I can say now that chilitos have the worst service I have ever experience. The waitress seemed to hate her job and her facial expression toward costumers was the worst i have ever seen. We nicely talked to the manager to try to fix that problem and he also seemed to not care. We went there to watch the game... More

We were there in Las Cruces for a funeral and that is where everyone decided to go and eat! The food was excellent and the service was excellent! And the prices were very good! The taco plate was huge and so delicious! And we never had to wait for refills! So happy we decided on that place to eat!

In stopping over at Las Cruces this March, my group decided to go to Chilitos for dinner. It was close and recommended by the motel staff. It did not disappoint as we all enjoyed the meal. Although some things were new to try and texture different, the best part of my meal was the homemade tacos. Nothing like the cardboard... More

I have been here several times now and only because of the food really. The food is good and reasonably priced which is the main draw. Other than that, the servers and staff are rude! They give chips and salsa which are good, but they make the chips huge so they can only fit a few in the basket and... More

Server was busy with a huge group so we didn't get much attention from her. Fresh chips and salsa were delivered with our drink orders. The salsa's almost too hot; you need to temper your tongue to it or you won't be able to taste anything for a while. After a 15-20 minute wait our meals were delivered. My taco... More

I was traveling through Las Cruces and stopped in with my teenage son for a quick lunch. (At the location near I-10). We had to hurry because my dog was in the car (it was a cool day, she was fine). We told the hostess/ waitress that we had to be fairly quick, and she and the kitchen did a... More

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel where we were staying. It was within walking distance. For me, that was the only positive. The place is shabby, there was almost no one there, the waitress was less than enthusiastic, and the food was WAY TOO SPICY!!! So not liking spicy food I ordered the fajitas...not spicy...but boring and not good.... More

Been coming here for years and always leave satisfied. It runs hot and cold but mostly very good. Not a new place but the beer is cold and very cheap during happy hour. Good selection of entrees but my favorite is the chili rellenos smothered with green chili and a fried egg on top. I always have great service and... More
