“Authentic New Mexico flavor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

You have to know how to find "The H" as locals call it, but it's worth it. It is authentic New Mexico flavor at its delicious, not-heart-healthy best. The plates are made one at a time so you know it is as fresh as if it came right out of your Mama's kitchen (if you Mama is a really good cook). This is the real deal and it's real good. Prices are modest, the service quietly friendly. Find it, you won't regret it!

“Excellent Mexican food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

Clean with open seating. I absolutely love the tacos, wife likes the enchiladas...both green and red. Appears to be family/friends operation...a bit understaffed but friendly. Food is worth the wait. We find ourselves there more and more.

“MY-T-FINE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

While stopped to get a flat fixed in Artesia, I asked the man at the tire store where we could find a good breakfast burrito. His recommendation was La Herradura, translation, the horseshoe.
It's a few blocks off the beaten path in an area where you would never expect to find a restaurant but you might be sorry you missed it.
We got some Chorizo and Egg burritos to go and ate on the road. They were the best we have ever tasted. The red sauce was fabulous, tasty with very nice heat.
Everything is cooked when ordered instead of sitting on a steam table for hours. I watched them cook the chorizo and the eggs fresh so I know of what I speak.
Looking forward to returning to La Herradura so we can try some other things on the menu.

“Good food for a very reasonable price!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

The food is good especially the tacos. This restaurant is in a neighborhood that many people did not go into, and has developed from a small house into a nice sized restaurant. The only complaint would be that many times there are not enough servers, and plates come out one at a time so if you have a large group than the food does not come out together.
