With atmosphere and the ambiance of Old Mexico, a great place to eat. Fantastic drinks, good service staff, great food, whenever Company comes to visit, it's always one of the first restaurants we take them. Advise going a bit early to stroll the shops in the Plaza during daylight.

While visiting the town of Mesilla, La Posta restaurant was recommended. Nice Mexican restaurant. Quick service and ample portions. A local eatery for a long time. I would eat here again. My entire party all was pleased with there food selection. Ample parking during lunch.

I had been to La Posta de Mesilla before and enjoyed going back. Yes, it's on the "touristy" end of things, but . . . it's still a warm and inviting place to dine. The barrel tequila (exclusive to La Posta) is delightful (especially after several!) and the food was plentiful, well-presented and tasty. Well worth visiting.

What a fun and interesting place. The food didn't disappoint and the cocktails were great as well. I will come back every time I come back to Las Cruces. Great service as well.

I am a native New Mexican living in AZ. Every time I get the opportunity to go home, I am most anticipating eating great food. Of course I am biased and think that NM food is greatest, but I'm also a realist and I know how to be honest. My family used to go to La Posta when I was... More

The atmosphere is EVERY reason to go here and of course the Tequila selection is the BEST! One of the tastiest Mexican food dining in NM. Highly recommend.

Definitely a must place to eat when in the Las Cruces, NM area. Voted one of the Top Ten Mexican Style Restaurants in America. It is a fine place to dine. I highly recommend one of the "Speciality of La Posta" plates. Stay away from hamburgers and steaks. Eat best of the Mesilla Valley New Mexican food.

I had a bad experience about a month and a half ago but decided to give La Posta another try. The service was quite good today compared to the last time. The food was better though not outstanding. I did mention to the server that the red chile con carne was way too salty. He would have brought me another... More

This restaurant was highly recommended by friends. It wasn't particularly busy when we were there and the interior decor is decidedly Mexican-styled and funky. On the plus side, the margaritas were very good. The food was plentiful but my husband's plate lacked a chile relleno (which is why he ordered that selection). I found it pretty ordinary grub. Sorry!
