“Overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

Normally we plan our trips through Las Cruces on days when we can eat at Chope's in La Mesa - yes, it's that good. This time, however, our timing was off. On the advice on the desk manager at our hotel, we tried La Posta. What a disappointment! Our food was a bit salty, not bad, but only mediocre.

“This is for tourists!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

They do their job well, serving hundreds of people a day. This is a place to bring visitors, locals usually prefer more spicier food. Good prices and good service.

“This place is really great in all respects”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

Everything about this restaurant was dynamite - service, food, atmosphere, and the neat birds and fish. I will gladly return anytime I am in the Las Cruces area.

“Not the way I remember it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

With my parents and sister we visited Old Mesilla NM yesterdayt and ate lunch at La Posta as we have for years. The food was just not as good as it used to be . The beans and rice were tasteless and my sister said that the food tasted like old grease. No where near as good as it always was in the past. Still great service and the restaurant was still in great shape.
