“A good Restaurant, La Posta de Mesilla”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

I live in the Mesilla Valley, where there are not too many good restaurants. Therefore, La Posta is one of the eateries where we eat often. They now provide a delicious brunch on week-ends where you can order breakfast items not found in other places in town. I highly recommend this as a place for New Mexico style food.

“What a delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

It is a cold grey morning in las cruces and La Posta cheered these weary travelers to the moon. La Posta is the old post office building in La Mesilla, the old village part of Las Cruces. La Mesilla is totally charming in itself but La Posta is all decked out for Christmas. So pretty. My Posole was yummy. I are every bite. Hubby's breakfast burrito was decent. Service was excellent. Don't miss it!

“Lots of atmosphere, tequila, and shopping!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

A fun, very southwestern feeling. Margaritas, flight of fancy tequila, yummy, very generous portions of food all add up to a great experience. Walk around the shops, maybe join in a festival on the plaza... When we were there, there was a Chanukah Festival.

“La Posta de Mesilla”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

This restaurant is wonderful. History drips out of the walls. The food is excellant and the little shops inside the restaurant proper will keep you busy for some time. It's located in Mesilla, NM. where back in the day it was a Butterfield Stage Stop. The Tequila bar puts out some really good Margaritas. The various rooms are beautiful.....especially the tile work and pictures that are everywhere. The fish and the birds are colorful and fun to spend a little time with. Over all this is a really cool place and the atmosphere and food are spectacular.

“Absolutely beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

We had already eaten somewhere else but had read about La Posta (formerly a Butterfield Stage stop) in our travel brochures. It was a short distance from where we were staying but we decided to check it out. Had one of their famous Margaritas and some chips and salsa in the "Tequila Bar" -- very good -- but just walking through the various rooms was amazing...the tile work and pictures were beautiful! We actually wished we would have eaten dinner there -- looking at what others were eating told the story...excellent Mexican food!
