Great Mexican food

This is a nice little local Mexican restaurant with a friendly atmosphere. The restaurant was bustling when we visited and we received good service and really good food. The tableside guacamole was fabulous! I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

When compared to other Mexican food restaurants this place ranks average. The food was reasonably priced and abundant, however we found it to be warm instead of hot so eat it fast. The salsa was great, but the chips seamed a little stale. The service was great. Overall if you want a decent meal I would recommend this place.

Only in New Mexico does the food erupt into savory delight from the many subtle flavors, none of which overwhelm. Los Cerritos combines a personable staff concerned with patrons' enjoyment of great Mexican food. Unlikely we'll eat anywhere else if traveling through Roswell.

Decided to try this Mexican restaurant. The food was not that great. Neither was the service. We would not eat there again.

Had a ranchero steak with a well prepared enchilada, rice and "charro" beans. Overall it had an expected taste and was quite uneventful. Maybe a bit shade of fast food for me. It hit the spot.

I can't believe these reviews! Los Cerritos in Roswell?? My husband had the relllenos with beans and rice. He loves rellenos - not these. They tasted terrible, greasy and stale. I had the fajitas salad, usually a safe choice. The fajitas veggies were limp, greasy, and room temperature. The rest of the salad was OK. I've lived in the southwest... More

The plates of food here are quite ample - enough to share between two. The chiles rellenos were freshly made and delicious. A nice touch is the ability to order charro (whole) beans instead of the usual refried beans. A strange possibility since they do not have a full liquor license (just wine and beer) is a margarita made with... More

Good Mexican food. The waitress was helpful and nice. Good food. The service was a little slow but not unusual for smaller towns. We'd return.

My food was good, I had the Carne Asada, which in this case was beef, a thin slice of roast, as that is the Mexican style so often, and all of the sides were very good. I made some little tacos from the corn tortillas they provided, and even put in the slices of avocados that came with it. Good... More

I highly recommend!!! My family and I eat here all the time. My husband and I love the Steak Picado - although I order it with Jalapeno rather than green chili.
