This restaurant used to be so good, we ate there two days in a row. However, on this trip to Deming, we discovered that apparently, they have changed ownership and along with it, the quality of their food. It was nowhere near what it used...More

Always the most delicious Green Chile topping over freshly prepared meals! Try a glass of milk first if your stomach is 'delicate' Very clean and excellent service too!

The food was tasty. The salsa was hot & spicy just what we like. The tamale was extra large & full of shredded pork. All in all it was good traditional Mexican food. We will visit here again on our next time thru Deming.

Sunday's, most restaurants are closed in Deming. Looked for Mexican food and margaritas. None to be found. Stopped at La Fonda. Only 2 other guests - should have been a clue. Only beer and strange wine. Our group ordered chimichangas, quesadilla and tacos. Not much...More
