You have to be near the University exit of I-10 to find it, but they have great food for lunch and they are BUSY. They have a limited menu of Tacos, Burritos and other Mexican favorites. Nothing fancy as you stand in land to order...More

A great little very local place to stop by for a quick bite. Rolled tacos were yummy, very basic plate with beans and rice... No lettuce, no salsa... Just beans rice and three rolled tacos for $5.50. But we enjoyed them, as they were true...More

I have been eating here since 1980. Very little has changed, menu included, and the taste is still amazing. This is a true hole in the wall, but clean, and well known by all locals. Everything on the menu is excellent. Truly authentic Mesilla Valley...More

I think that I have tried everything on the menu and was satisfied with every thing. I love there tamales. Very reasonable prices. Great place for a quick lunch stop.

This small Mesilla Park restaurant is a favorite of locals for great food at good prices. The operation is a part of a larger Mexican foods producer guaranteeing fresh items for sale on-site. Daily specials with Friday's green echilada plate being a favorite of mine....More

Visited once during each of my last two trips to LC. Had the red meat burritos both times (I know - no sense of adventure!). Very good but Nellie's is a bit better. I'll definitely go again.
