This restaurant is definitely average. The food is nothing special. It is just ordinary Mexican food and a bit pricey at that. It is very Disney Land like in its interior setting and we never go to La Posta unless someone who has never been to New Mexico is visiting. We take them on the tourist tour at least once.... More

Visit La Posta in historic Mesilla, and take a step back in time, as you dine in an adobe building hundreds of years old. A stop on the old Butterfield Stagecoach Line, La Posta has been serving authenic Border Mexican food for a long time. It's our go-to restaurant, for any occassion. The drinks are amazing and they have a... More

This is what old-time New Mexican meals were all about. In addition, their selection of Tequilas is awesome. Very reasonable prices and decor is straight from Old Mexico. A favorite easy-to-get-to restaurant.

Very interesting environment in old Mesilla maintains old town charm in this beautiful building comprised of 15 separate rooms artfully joined into a beautiful space decorated with traditional and folk Mexican art. The food prices are very reasonable and the many types of margaritas is mind boggling. Sticking with the original is the best way to go. We both ordered... More

I have been eating here since I was a child, so I enjoy the unique decor of the different rooms, as well as the delicious authentic New Mexican cuisine. The staff is friendly, and they always recognize my parents who live in Las Cruces. It's a "must-go-to" place every time I visit my hometown.

Was not impressed with anything on the menu. Was recommended to us by realtor when we got here in November and thought all Mexican food here might taste the way this place did. Thankfully we discover this not to be the case!!!

Food and cocktails has been consistently poor. I really would like to love it because the decor is warm and authentic.

Good place to take out-of-town folks for kitschy "Mexico" experience. Food just ok. Strange "zoo" at entrance. Locals seem to be entranced with these large birds, but it seems very unsanitary to us!

After all the glowing reviews and word-of-mouth recommendations, we looked forward to dinner at La Posta. We do not feel it lives up to all the hype. The historic aspect of the restaurant was impressive and the décor was certainly distinctive and inviting. Even though the restaurant was packed, there was some ambience. They tout their margaritas and even though... More
