This Mexican restaurant is a nice, usually quiet place located in Hotel Encato. The service is good, the food satisfying, and the ambiance acceptable.

During my stay at El Encanto Hotel in Las Cruces I decided to dine at Garduño's. Very pretty setting, integrates the charm of Spanish colonial times with the vibrant Mexican culture. Very nice staff, very friendly and accommodating BUT do not order the house or the Gold margarita! Both were equally disappointing. Their tortilla soup was delicious, truly the best... More

Stopped here while at the cannabis expo. Shared a great breakfast, although it said fry bread so being from Northern New Mexico we expected something different than a sopapilla,but it was still good.

As a night shift worker, it is difficult to find a meal with cocktails when I get off work at 7 am. My wife met me and coworkers for breakfast and Bloody Mary's. We sat at the bar. Arthur, the bartender, was the best. The best Bloody Mary I've ever had was made by Arthur. We recommend it. Definitely if... More

Ate here for breakfast and had the breakfast chili rellanos with queso, and they were amazing. The breakfast is big and you won't leave hungry!

Had New Mexican food and margaritas. It's in the hotel so convenient. Staff was friendly. Looked like a well stocked bar. We looked at another bar in the hotel, the Azul but didn't stop in.

We stayed at the Hotel Encanto and ordered room service. The menu is pretty small compared to what is on the main menu. We asked if we could order off the menu and they agreed which was great. We shared the ribeye with Diablo shrimp. The ribeye was delicious and perfectly cooked. The Diablo shrimp is slightly spicy and covers... More

I had such a great experience with the mid-afternoon bartender who made me a PERFECT margarita that I didn't mind the average food. Unfortunately, the margaritas made later in the day by a different bartender were undrinkable - they were nothing but margarita mix. Very disappointing.

We were in Las Cruces for a long weekend and had the opportunity to have breakfast twice on our trip plus had a couple of cocktails over the weekend here as well. Breakfast - so great we ate here twice! I loved the breakfast burrito with green chilis! They give you plenty of food and it is truly delicious. The... More

Other Garduno's restaurants are great. This one is just barely average. Mostly it is the poor service.
