Had a great dinner here. Our hotel had given us a coupon so we thought we would try it out. The food was very good. The queso dip was not what we were used to but we were pleasantly surprised. It has ground beef in it. The tacos are wonderful. They also have a local brew if you drink called... More

Wonderful food!!! All four of us really enjoyed our meal. Great flavor, wonderful heat! Good portion size for price. My husband loves fajitas and is often disappointed in the lack of flavor, not here!! I would definitely stop here again if I ever come back!

The food: deep flavors. The service: friendly with a welcoming feel. Ambiance: made perfect with live music--guitar player with great range and selections. We'd go back to Roswell just to eat here. 5 stars!

Great Mexican food at a fair price. I had a steak burrito and the steak was amazing! lots of good flavor. Chips and salsa were great as well. Staff was friendly. Restaurant was clean including spotless bathrooms. Highly recommend this place and I will defiantly return if I'm ever back in this area.

Los Cerritos was recommended by the front desk at the hotel. The place was huge and the wait was about 30 minutes on a Sunday about 9:00 a.m. The food was average, the service was slow and not entirely accurate. They tried their best and were very friendly.

Excellent food, first of all--classic New Mexican and Mexican dishes, salads, personalised guacamole made to your order, generous portions, great beers; super service with friendly waitstaff who know their kitchen. They have side rooms for groups; acoustics are variable with where you sit in the main room, but conversation is never blotted out by noise from kitchen or overbearing music... More

We didn't find too much on Trip Advisor, but locals spoke very highly of this restaurant. We were pleased, as it was excellent New Mexican cuisine.

Stopped through Roswell driving across the country and asked at a gas station where I could get the best Mexican food. The attendant told me Cerritos and two locals piled on. They were right! Start with being served by Luis, an attentive and patient young man, who took the time to answer our questions, and when I asked what was... More

We had a good waitress. The food we all had was very good. Beef fajitas, beef and cheese enchiladas. The chips were fresh and not greasy. The salsa was spicy. Be advised there are no frozen drinks available.
