La Nueva Casita is a bustling place with great local flavor. Their salsa is great, queso is very good and enchiladas represent our New Mexico culture perfectly.

I ordered beef fajitas with refried beans and my boyfriend ordered the special, chicken tacos. Fresh guac on both our orders. I had to threaten him to leave my left over fajitas alone. Our food was out before we knew it.
