“Great atmosphere, okay food.”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

The food isn't bad, but there is much better Mexican to be had in Mesilla. The restaurant itself is very atmospheric - a good place to bring out-of-towners but otherwise we don't go there.

“Overrated”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

Normally we plan our trips through Las Cruces on days when we can eat at Chope's in La Mesa - yes, it's that good. This time, however, our timing was off. On the advice on the desk manager at our hotel, we tried La Posta. What a disappointment! Our food was a bit salty, not bad, but only mediocre.

“This is for tourists!”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

They do their job well, serving hundreds of people a day. This is a place to bring visitors, locals usually prefer more spicier food. Good prices and good service.
