We eat at Los Cerritos often. Lots of room, good service, and good food. I, personally, like the Los Cerritos Burger...who would have thought the burgers would be so good at a Mexican restaurant. If you want to pig out for a little cash, check out Taco Tuesday - tacos for 50 cents!

We ate breakfast one day and dinner the next day. Nice place! The portions are large, we had to take some back to the motel in a to-go box. It was delicious!

After reading all the other reviews my family and I decided to eat here. Horrible decision! Walking in I really thought I was in a regular old Cafe, not a Mexican restaurant, just not what I expected. The salsa was terrible (I like chunky salsa with a kick, this was like tomato sauce with a ton of hot sauce poured... More

This restaurant is within walking distance of several hotels & is well worth a visit. The New Mexican menu is varied, portions are large & prices are very reasonable. They also offer beer on tap. I ate dinner here twice & noticed quite a few locals eat here too - always a good sign!

Turns out there wasn't much open on a Sunday morning at 10AM in Roswell (!) except for the chain restaurant slop. What's up with that? But someone suggested we try Los Cerritos and it turned out to be quite good, inexpensive and serviced by friendly staff. It's always nice to find a locally owned and operated establishment, so we were... More

A nice margarita, and the chips and salsa were very good. The enchiladas were average. The fish tacos were short on fish. The service was exceptional.

Stopped in for breakfast, nothing outstanding to speak of but did have quick service so that was a plus. Biscuits and gravy could have been excellent But the biscuits were very stale, sorry people using gravy to smother stale biscuits just doesn't work.

Our hotel recommended this place, with a 10% discount, as one of the better places in town to eat authentic mexican food. It did not disappoint. About a two block walk from La Quinta. The food tasted wonderful. Though the wait staff was somewhat slow, the food more than made up for our wait. Plus we were not looking for... More

My wife and I were heading for Carlsbad Caverns NP and chose to stay in Roswell for more affordable lodging. We like Mexican/Southwestern food so we decided to try Los Cerritos, based on some good TA reviews. The restaurant is simple in layout, but clean, bright and friendly. While salsa and chips are not a major issue in our meal... More

Went to this restaurant long ago and it was okay... We went back this past Sunday. The place was packed at 2 pm. The salsa and chips were great! All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The service was great. Saw the next table got guacamole, made at the table. I want that next time. Will definitely go back.... More
