We ordered a multi-course meal, which was an amazing value.

We both liked our meal. The queso appetizer not so much, but the salsa was flavorful and spicy and the guacamole salad was generous and tasty. Entree was very good. Good margarita.

We both liked our meal. The queso appetizer not so much, but the salsa was flavorful and spicy and the guacamole salad was generous and tasty. Entree was very good. Good margarita. Service was outstanding; I think our waiter was very much above par. Dessert empanada was very tasty......no room for the sopapilla.

Great ambience. Very historic. Very colorful. Walk around and check out the bars and other rooms. The lava room is eye candy. Traditional NM fare. Good sour cream enchiladas. Breakfast on sat and sun. Steve is the best server.

This was my first time to La Posta, and I definately be back...The food was outstanding. We had a the combination #1 and everything was great, including the mexican cole slaw..I will try to make it back to this restaurant. The green chili con queso was also outstanding....The sopapillas were great as were the apple empanadas.

As another recent reviewer put it: "It's All about the Ambience". I've been here several times and I don't remember what I ate (combo plate I think). I just remember that the food was not memorable. Because of its history and atmosphere, every one should come here at least once. And any time a visitor comes from out of town,... More

The food is authentic Mexican fare, and the physical restaurant facility is warm and inviting. The restaurant is located in a historical, retail specialty area. Parking is available at local lots.

Whenever we visit Las Cruces we have a meal at La Posta. This time it was for a late Saturday lunch. Even at 330pm it was very busy and we waited about 10 minutes. I'd forgotten how many rooms there are here and how each is gaily painted and decorated slightly differently. I had part of a guacamole salad, a... More

My wife and I had dinner there yesterday and it was great. Whenever we are near Las Cruces we make it a point to dine there. The food is great and the prices very reasonable. Service is always good as well. If you go expect to wait a short time. The place is so good there is always a line.

Breakfast in the great historic Old Mesilla gem. La Posta has been a mainstay for dinner but on weekends the breakfast is great. I loved eating chips and salsa at breakfast while I waited for my chile rellanos. The tostadas compuestas looked great too!
