Quaint place

I absolutely loved the area this restaurant is located, very quaint and felt like I was going back in time. The food was fair, not the best by far but the ambiance certainly helped. We ordered sopapillas for desert and they were very thick not thin and crispy like what I used to. I will probably... read more

Have been coming here, every few years, since the 1970's. Love the atmosphere and decor. Waitress was excellent and really good with the kids. And the food was better than ever. Memorable were the chiles rellenos, tostadas compuestas, posole and green chile stew.

I have eaten at La Posta intermittently for 40 years. It was always the go to place for us when we had out of town visitors. At one time, it was a bit rustic and run by a real bit of local color - Katie Camunez. I knew her via business. The first time I took my visiting parents there,... More

La Posta is very popular and is busy every night and for good reason. The service is great, the food is great and the bar is outstanding. We shared fajitas and still had leftovers and we imbibed the best prickly pear margaritas ever - any time we see those on a drink menu we try them and La Posta has... More

Great Mexican food! Experienced staff, in an old Mexican building. Caters to tourist with mild food, but you can up the heat if that's what you desire.

For many decades my family has come to La Posta and if I am within an hour or two I make a beeline to this great local foods Mecca. The ambiance is wonderful -- cooled in the summer and kept warm in the winter by the thick adobe walls. Stop in the lobby and be greeted by the birds and... More

I know that taste in Mexican, or any other ethnic food, is subjective, but having eaten at nearly all the other restaurants in Mesilla, La Posta is still my favorite. The food is always good, as is the service. Sundays are not the best days to go because they are sometimes short staffed and things slow down, but that does... More
