“Classic Northern New Mexican Eatery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Just around the corner from the Traveler's Café on the Plaza, Estella's is a long-time tradition for locals and visitors alike. Serving excellent red chile (and a decently hot green) and a standard but lovingly prepared northern New Mexico menu (enchiladas, burritos, chicharrones, and of course menudo), Estella's is a down-home, informal, family-friendly must-visit.

“The late, much lamented, Estella's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Estella's, my favorite lunch spot in Las Vegas, closed a year ago and is much missed by the town. The building was sold, but no future plans have emerged.

“Yes, It's Closed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

Tour book said nice things, but this restaurant is no longer. Stopped by in early October and it looks as if it's been out of business for some time.

“Closed!”

Just to confirm this place has closed and is no longer in business. TripAdvisor has been notified buy they seem intent on not doing anything about it.

“So long, old friend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Reporting to "ex-pats" that Estella's Cafe closed this week. What a wonderful place--real food, nourishing meals and company. I don't know if there will ever be a restaurant that can take its place. Hasta la vista!
