First off, this has the largest Tequila menu I have ever seen. Secondly, the service is fantastic. Thirdly, the food is good and the decor lovely. It would be a great place to frequent and have a friends join you.

This is authentic Mexican food served in a setting that really puts you in the mood for eating. The selections are superb and the wait staff are very knowledgable and the service is excellent. This establishment has the best selection of tequila I have ever seen and I have traveled extensively in the U.S. The prices are very reasonable and... More

Went to La Posta de Mesilla while on travel in Las Cruces. Pulling up to the restaurant in this quaint part of the city I immediately noticed the antiquity of the facade. Inside there are some kitschy gift shops, fish tanks, and parrots. Back in the dining area, I felt like I could be in Mexico. Had a strong and... More

First - I will admit this is my favorite place to eat - EVER, and have been here hundreds of time since I was a child. I have had most everything on the menu - my favorite being Red Meat Enchilada, Egg over easy. Just Amazing. However, I ate 3 times here last month, and although the Red Meat was... More

La Posta is obviously a classic place. The outside of the building and the interior is classic New Mexico like Old Mexico. They have some unique things such as the parrot cage in the waiting area, they have excellent chips and salsa. The food is just ok! Nothing like Santa Fe New Mexican food. The chile they offer is interesting.... More

La Posta IS the restaurant of choice of the Mesilla Valley. The menu is extensive. La Posta offers whatever you want in New Mexican food! You really can't go wrong with their flautas or enchiladas. Leave red chile to the locals. Green chile adds something to everything you eat at this establishment! Vegetarian-friendly and super service. If you have to... More

Stopped there on recommendation from some local folks. They serve basic Mexican food. The salsa was not good - have had better. The food was OK and the service left a lot to be desired. The restaurant is aesthetically nice. It has a nice cage displaying beautiful birds.

Good margaritas served with a great smile. Plenty of chips and salsa. I found the menu and food more American Mexican then real Mexican (MEXTEC). The home made green pepper chili was not the best I had in Mesilla. Did not understand the bird thing. Old New Mexico neighborhood of Mesilla which is rich in history has many good small... More

We went here after a long drive - the place is really unusual, with a menagerie of birds in the reception, then a set of rooms behind for dining with lots of original art. The lady who showed us to our table was dressed in bright, traditional outfit. . Lots of chips and salsa, each replaced when finished, as were... More
