As the title says, the size of the nachos were enormous. The food was all very good and the beer selection was better than at most Mexican restaurants. The service was great with a friendly waiter who stopped by frequently to check on us.

I've reviewed this place a couple times. We get here about once every 18 months en route from TX to AZ. We plan our stops so that we hit this restaurant in the late afternoon. Consistently good shredded beef. Cole Slaw is very unique and one of the main reasons we come here again and again. Posole' is my husband's... More

I asked the desk clerk at my hotel for a recommendation for New Mexican for dinner; he said Andele’s in Old Mesilla. It was delicious. I did not find this place in searching on Trip Advisor because I did not think to look up Mesilla, and it is listed separately from Las Cruces. Andele’s is #2 in Mesilla on TA... More

You will not find better or more authentic Mexican food than at andele's. I recommend the combo #2 and a bowl of posole. We spent 4 days in Las Cruces and ate here twice, it was that good.

My wife and I are from Phoenix so we know Mexican. we were passing through Las Cruces on an extended road trip and went site seeing in Mesilla (very nice plaza and Santa Fe feel without the crowds and prices). This place was recommended by a shop worker since Josephinas was closed. The restaurant is long established and boasted a... More

Dine there regularly either there or their adjacent Dog House site, and never disappointed. Sopapilla's are great, Taco's are great, good service, can be a bit noisy when crowded, and many nights will be waiting for a table- but find it worth the wait

Great Mexican place very close to Old Mesilla. Highly recommend the pork tacos and the shrimp tacos. Huge portions for a great price.

On a long trip from Dallas decided to spend the night in Las Cruces and asked the front desk for a recommendation of a local favorite that was not a chain. I personally try to avoid chains! Upon arrival to Andele, I was seated quickly, placed was filled with locals so was hopeful for a great meal. Chips were immediately... More

Service was very efficient and helpful. We shared the #3 and we were glad we did ! Large portions and very very tasty. HOT spicy green chili but SO good. Andele makes the tortillas next door at their factory and they are sold everywhere in town. They are wonderful ! Make sure you are hungry when you go to Andele.

At first going into the restaurant it doesn't look like much but going into the court yard you enter into an extension on old town Mesilla. The food was authentic Mexican and not out of a can. Service was fast and friendy.
