On a sort 3 day visit to Las Cruces my wife and I wanted to try as many authentic restaurants as possible. This place ruined it for us. We ate here every morning for breakfast. So much for trying as many different things as possible. The staff members are very attentive and friendly. The food is very good. It's not... More

I've been searching for a carne asada burrito and I believe I have found one! The food is great, but takes a while since it is such a busy place. Make sure you get there a bit before 11am for lunch otherwise you might not find a table!

This place has the worst service and the rudest wait staff. Went there at 1 pm only one other table was seated otherwise the place was dead. Wait staff just standing around talking when they finally decided to take our order I requested additional chips; he said sure and never came back with chips. My flauta plate was drowned in... More

Good authentic Tex-Mex breakfast. Wife had the Huevos Rancheros and I had the 'Grande' breakfast burrito. Both were quite good. Homemade tortillas too! Two salsas are served at breakfast, one cold and one warm. The service is good, food comes quick and it was delicious. This one of those hole-in-the-wall places, where the locals go. We had actually visited here... More

If you like salsa with a kick this is the place. Beef fajita plate was a good portion for lunch. The tacos are good. The whole menu is at the top. Other than the enchiladas I didn't care for those. But te salsa I buy and take back to Texas with me every time I go.

Hidden on a side street but well worth looking for. The food is very good, flavorful and authentic. Order at the counter and find a table. The portions are generous and reasonably priced. The tostada compuesta plate with red chili, green chili and beans is great. Their chile rellenos are well done. Save room for dessert, they have the best... More
