We were in Las Cruces for the night and looked for restaurants near our hotel to get take out. We had very high hopes for the food after the reviews and the exceptionally friendly service when we called in our order and picked it up....Unfortunately when we got back to our hotel, we found several errors with the order. Luckily the cheese quesadillas for our children were as expected and enjoyed. The problems were with our meals. We ordered one chicken chimichanga with refried beans and rice and one beef chimichanga with ‘whole beans with chorizo’ and rice. We got two beef chimichangas both with refried beans and rice. They were served with the three sauces on the side. One came with the tomato sauce, guacamole sauce, and sour cream. The other had no guacamole sauce but a container of mayonnaise instead. The description of the chimichanga said it was meat, cheese and peppers. Neither had any cheese and only about 6 or 7 pieces of green pepper. The meat tasted steamed/boiled and was very unpleasant. I couldn’t eat it and really wished I would have gotten the chicken that I ordered! Luckily I had the refried beans and rice with the extra chips and salsa I ordered for dinner. If you like the taste of the meat, you’d be happy because there was a huge quantity inside the tortilla. Sadly, we can’t recommend this restaurant based on the taste of the food and the errors. But the staff was so friendly!More

Ordered takeout for dinner and the staff couldn't be nicer! Really helpful on the phone and asked about toppings when I got there to pick up the food. We ordered the tacos estrella, the Chile relleno platter, and the cheesecake with strawberries. The tacos were...amazing! I was so jealous of my fiance for ordering them! I had the Chile rellenos and I should mention that this was my first time ordering them. Really liked the green Chile sauce, but I thought they were a little soggy. Not sure if that's how they're supposed to be or it's because we did take out and the sauce was already on them? Anyway, the rice on the side was great. And we loved the cheesecake! Super light and creamy! We really liked la nueva casita!More

Neighborhood restaurant with good food and excellent customer care. We will probably return for a kickback meal and happy staff.

Just really bland and average! The food was cooked to my request and the Chile was not very plentiful or flavorful. The Chocolate Flan was great and our server was friendly.

Very friendly staff. Wonderful red sauce. We were looking for vegan options, not many but they made us a delicious bean burrito smothered in red Chile sauce. Good guacamole and horchata
