Visiting Las Cruces for an event and wanted to get some good local Mexican food. Found this place on my NM life app and decided to check it out. It's hard to find, my cars GPS took me somewhere else, but we finally found it....More

Previous reviews don't seem to match the experience we had AT ALL. We went a bit after the lunch crunch, and there was only one server. He had to do everything: take orders, clean tables, deliver food plates, and get refills! How in the world...More
