I like the food, the seafood fajita was very good. Crowded place, get their early. We did not have to wait long, but finding parking is a challenge.

Great place to take out of town visitors. The mood of the restaurant is so authentic. We ordered two large bowls of queso with corn tortillas. Very good! Not a bad looking plate on our table. We had everything from quesadillas to fajitas and everything in between. A few needed that last bit of sweet and ordered sopapillas. They were... More

La Posta has a neat atmosphere. Birds are the theme, including several different types of birds in large cages in the lobby. My mother and I visited with the bartender, who was very informative, about true Mezcal while waiting for a table. Once seated, our server was amazing! On top of everything from beginning to end. Can't say enough good... More

We went on a Saturday night. The food was just okay but pricey. The Margaritas were sort of bland and way too expensive. Service was so so. Have been here before and had the same experience don't know why I returned. Lots of better Mexican restaurants in the area.

We stayed at a nearby hotel and La Posta was recommended when we asked for restaurant ideas. Staff and another guest advised us to try La Posta. We went on a Tuesday night and it was very busy but we were seated right away. The place is 75 years old and the decor is charming. Our server was Aaron-- excellent.... More

Ate lunch here with a group of 10. Service was fine, a bit slow at first, but good. Decor is interesting and he building is old but well maintained. The cucumber jalapeño margarita was ok, but not spectacular. The la posta combination platter was good- I had an ice cream scope of guacamole and some green chili queso- good and... More

The restaurant has a interesting historic legacy. Unfortunately, when we were here several years ago we thought the food was much better. This time the service was excellent and friendly however the food was only average.

We enjoyed the food here, but to us it wasn't any better than Mexican food we had had elsewhere. This restaurant was written up in US News and was pushed as the best in the U.S. We still have one in Oregon that we like best (Si Casa Flores) and haven't been able to find anything to compare to it...

La Posta used to have the BEST chile rellanos anywhere, but that's not the case anymore. The food was just okay. The destination, the location, the adobe building, that's what makes this a must see for visitors. Anyone who wants a feel for the Southwest and the old plaza will love La Posta. A trip around the plaza square is... More

Great atmosphere in a historic building in old Mesilla. Good food, I loved the green chili and my husband loved the fajitas.
