“Worthwhile Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2008

La Posta is an excellent restaurant for for the traveler to the Las Cruces area. It is Mexican cuisine at its best. I always enjoy the fast, friendly service, and the excellent food.

I recommend calling ahead for reservations, because it does get busy, especially on weekends. I have always been ushered right to a table when I have done had a reservation. If one does have to wait, there are big, beautiful parrots and other birds in large cages, a substantial aquarium tank, a Mexican spice and speciality shop and a jewelry shop on the premises. So even waiting can be fun there.

Parking is provided, though much of it is about half a block away. But the area is safe and walking over is a pleasant experience. There is also parking along the little back street on which the restaurant is located.

This restaurant is such a treat for me that when I travel through Las Cruces I never even think of eating anywhere else.

“Very Busy on the Weekend”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2008

We tried to go here at 7pm on a Saturday night, but the overwhelmed hostess told us it would be an hour and fifteen minute wait, so we went to Nopalito instead. La Posta de Mesilla was definitely tourist-oriented, with shops in the foyer selling local crafts and tourist items.

So my advice is to call ahead to find out the wait times before you drive over there.

“Fun and good food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2007

Fun and good mexican food at this old stagecoach inn in Southern New Mexico. Great over the top decor and excellent food at reasonable prices. Don't want Mexican food? Try the steak!
