The restaurant looks like an old run-down drive-in type restaurant, but don't let the appearance fool you! This place has the best gorditas in town for an unbelievable 99 cent price (during certain hours of the day). We went to the drive-thru window last month and got 6 gorditas. They are simply fantastic and service was great! There are other... More

After living in LC for 10 years and driving by on a regular basis, I tried this place out. Long story short this is not the gordita capital of the world. Very disappointed.

The Gorditas at Saenz are the best in Las Cruces. The masa is fresh and the fillings are seasoned well. The beans and taco are also good but the rice is only average. The food makes up for the rundown external appearance.

Once again experience has proven that the best food is usually found in the most unlikely places. From the outside, Saenz Gorditas' is a run down drive-in restaurant from yesteryear which one would normally drive right by. I am glad I didn't. I had the gordita plate which came with rice and refried beans. The gorditas were fairly large and... More

This is one of the best places to eat in Las Cruces! The building looks like an older Sonic style building, but you can drive thru or go to the walk up window. We ordered a gordita and taco meal with a side of chips-n-salsa. The gorditas were amazing! The beans were amazing! The rice was delicious! Tacos were great... More

I've tried them all (almost). These are the best. They also have a special on them everyday in the late afternoon hours. We served them for our family the night before our wedding. YUM!!! And the price is fabulous

These are the best Gorditas I've ever had. I stop by every time I remember to, lol. The prices are so low you wonder how they stay in business.
