Friendly staff, food was ok but not fantastic. Margaritas were tasty but pricey. Avoid the chilly cheese fries at all costs they were soggy and tasteless.

I'm sort of a Mexican food snob, so I was disappointed by the food at Tia Juana's. Salsa was very tomatoey. I had a combo which was just OK. My buddy had fajitas and remarked that they were average. We were there for lunch. Not much more to say.

Quite tasty dishes and a wide variety to boot. There were six of us and had a large variety of goodies. Relleno, green & red chili dishes and tacos went down well. Margaritas were quite good as well. It's right on the main drag in Roswell and a fine place to stop after a day of chasing space aliens.

When in Roswell, we really like to eat here. This was our third or fourth time. The food was piping hot and delicious. The portions were ample. The "Mango Margarita" was awesome. The salsa with the chips was spicy and flavorful, without being painful. All in all a completely positive experience.

I had the relleno (I guess that is how you spell it) and my wife had the combo plate. Both were very good. You won't leave hungry. We had queso and guacamole which was good. Local food with red or green sauce.

We had lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The menu includes things like Chile Colorado and Pasole which are not available at most other Mexican restaurants. The food was good, the prices right and the beer was cold.

Large Mexican Grill and Cantina in north Roswell. The food was fresh and the portions were huge. After the drive up from Carlsbad and a long day in the caverns this was a great place for dinner. The complimentary chips and salsa were fresh and crispy. The salsa was a medium heat. The Swirl Margaritas had Sangria "swirled" in with... More

The interior is great. Lots of cool stuff to see and nice decorations. I had the enchiladas and they were good but I'm used to Tex-Mex. Waitress was really sweet and accommodating.
