Entry area looks like a small coffee shop to drink at the tables outside. Actually a very good sized resaurant with multiple rooms for dining and decorations throughout. Full bar. We had a the margaraitas which were good however weak. Usual Mexican menu with a few twists Quick service. Relatively quiet Clientel this evening all tourists Favorable

Okay place. Recommended by a hotel clerk (knowing hotel, might have some arrangement). Service was a little weak. Thought a geriatric cruise was at the port. Mostly diners from a group and not locals.

We had a late lunch so the restaurant was not busy. We sat inside near a very pretty mosaic fireplace. I had a green chile burger which was a little dry and my husband had the burrito carne adovada which he thought was delicious. The french fries with the burger were tasty and hot. Large portions. Our waiter was very... More

This restaurant was recommended by a tour guide. I think it was because of how old the building is rather than the quality of the food. I had the worst lunch. A bean burrito that was flavorless with the beans inside this huge tortilla. The beans on the side were bland and the vegetables were overcooked and watery. Wish I... More

This restaurant was strongly recommended to us for its authentic New Mexican cuisine, but the meal itself failed miserably to live up to the restaurants reputation. The menu looked much more American-Mexican franchise style (think Don Pablo's, etc.) than actually Latin-inspired. With the exception of the chili relleno and tamales, the food was bland and overcooked (dry). If you had... More

We visited here based on the recommendation of others who have before. It is located in historic Old Town on the street behind the church. Very quaint and pleasant atmosphere. Service was reasonable fast although our server didn't seem very sociable and it wasn't busy. I had beef enchiladas with red and it was just average. Not great especially for... More

Took foodie friend as reputation of CSC has been touted. Sat outside on front patio and service was a long time coming. Ordered water and a beer while we looked at menu. Got our waters but had to ask again for the beer. When we finally had our order taken it was at least a 30 min wait. My friend... More

Let's face it - Las Cruces, New Mexico has the best Mexican food. But now that we have moved to Albuquerque we really are trying to find that restaurant that has a chef that knows how to make real green or red!!!!! This restaurant does not, BUT their Chile Rellenos are the best in town!!!!! And, their tamales are also!!!!... More
