This is one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in Las Cruces. The food is very good and consistent. The service staff is also very good.

We had a very nice lunch here. Friendly greeting, short wait for a busy Sunday. The Star tacos were a nicely seasoned mix of beef and pork. Chicken chimichanga has big pieces of tender white meat. Nice portions and beautiful presentation..chimi was sauced green, white and red like a Mexican flag. Attentive service . Give them a try.

We stopped for lunch and had wonderful tacos. Nice quick and affordable! The guacamole had really great flavor. If you get enchiladas get the green chili sauce.

Our lunch was fresh, hot and delicious. Our server was so fast and friendly. The price was very reasonable. You can order breakfast all day. The location was about 2 miles off I 25 but worth it! Quaint old building. Lots of locals eating here. Lots of variety on menu.

Sitting in the vicinity of the old downtown, it still serves delicious New Mexican food! I used to work just two blocks away and visit frequently for lunch, Hadn't been there in years but was invited to lunch there last week and went. Ordered Chiles Rellenos and found them to be very good. I am certain that I will start... More

So my sister tells us we're going to try this place. We're from El Paso, but we're taking my Mom up to Las Cruces today and Mom says "Let's try something new." You've heard of restaurants that are a "hole-in-the-wall", and though this restaurant is indeed unassuming, it is nonetheless well worth it. Located in a well-kept building across from... More

This small cozy restaurant serves real Mexican food at reasonable prices. Every time we have been here, the service has been great. Food is consistently good. Some of their best dishes are the green chicken enchiladas and chile rellenos.

Most of the reviews are for the Mexican cuisine which is obviously great. We went there for the traditional 2 eggs over easy, hash browns, bacon, toast and coffee for Sunday breakfast, well it was also great. The price was right and the service was quick and efficient.

I won't repeat all the good things others have written and I agree. The food is quite spicy. The flan is delicious; like none I have eaten before. There is a chocolate brownie like layer and on top of that is a layer of the custard and then there is whipped cream on the side. Since it's very filling I... More
