Easy to drive by the town and the restaurant!.
We are glad we didn't.
The food was very good and authentic.
And the service was friendly and quick!

“Excellent Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

We drove through Deming on our way from Albuquerque to Tucson, and stopped for lunch at El Mirador. Excellent choice!

I had a chimichanga (shredded beef) and my son had tamales, both with green sauce, refried beans and rice. Good size portions, well presented and delicious from first bite to last. With an ice tea and horchata, the tab came to $20 - a very good value in my book. And service was great.

Going through or near Deming? If so, I recommend you try El Mirador.

“This New Mexican food is the real deal and really tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

This restaurant is certainly nothing spectacular to look at from the outside. However, we knew it was something special when we pulled into the parking lot and it was packed with cars. Most of the tables were taken by locals (always a good sign) when arrived at lunchtime.
Two of our party ordered New Mexico combination plates and I ordered the beef soup. The red and green chili sauces were very spicy with great flavor. Each entree was hot, fresh and really tasty. It was cold outside (24 F) and I had a lot of soup during our 6 day stay in NM. El Mirador's soup was the best I had during my trip, in fact the best I have had in months! The huge chunks of beef were tender, the veggies al dente, and the broth outstanding!
And be sure and try their fresh squeezed OJ that is loaded with pulp.

“Great value, Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

We moved to El Paso 6 months ago and this is the second best mexican food we've had. (Taos - #1). From the outside doesn't look like anyplace special, but the food was tasty and a great value. We especially liked the chips and salsa and sopapillas for dessert. Recommend the shredded beef sopapilla.

“Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

90% of folks will drive right by this restaurant. It looks like something out of Diners and Dives. But the food is good and authentic and reasonably priced. It's a place you should try.
