I do not make a habit of complaining but felt I should share this was my fellow Las Cruces friends. We had breakfast there and it was the worst ever! First of all we had to wait a very long time for our food to arrive. Had to ask for a coffee refill, etc. Then when the food finally came... More

We recently had about 25 individuals who dined at this location. Or should I say attempted to dine at this location. From the time of ordering to the last person to get their order was over an hour and a half (90 minutes). We were not offered refills on the drinks, or asked if we would like desert. Most of...

There were four us and we started with the guacamole appetizer which was excellent. Entrees we ordered included two salmon dishes, a fettuccine and a pork dish. All were excellent and the accompanying salads were fresh, crisp and appropriately chilled. Deserts we ordered included flan and cheesecakes which were all excellent. Service was excellent and we were very pleased with... More

My wife and I decided to try Paisano Cafe on the recommendation of a friend. It was a bit of an adventure finding it and in fact I am sure that given the location and the lack of signage that no one wanders in by accident. When we were presented with the menu it was clear to us that we... More

A little hidden treasure. A little bit of everything specially for lunch but specializes in mexican food such as tacos, enchiladas, and four amazing moles !!! There are wraps, salads, sandwiches, burguers, fish and even pasta!

We had a group dinner there. While the food was good, the service to the group was rather disorganized. The last of our 20+ received their food after the first were done and places cleared. We had two entrees, one glass of wine, and an iced tea for over $50. Would be great for a special occasion, but not for... More

This place is a little bit of a challenge to find, but it is worth it. They have an interesting menu -- it is not all the same boring stuff that you can find in almost every restaurant, it seems. There's some "American"-type food (steaks & seafood -- very good -- I really recommend the steak with the bleu cheese... More
