Not sure what it would be without Peter. You walk in and he immediately knows your drink preference (it may have been six months since you were last in) - Probsbly just another good Mexican restaurant. We started going to the original location many many many years ago and still find that they do a better job than most in... More

The owner Peter personally waits on each and every customer and always remembers what you had last time you were in. Everything from his kitchen is delicious and the "Skinny" Margaritas are extremely potent--2 is my limit. Make reservations because we went on Sunday night and it was packed.

Not too long ago, La Nueva Posada, was a nice family owned restaurant with very good service and very good Mexican food. The restaurant closed down for about 3 months at the beginning of the year and notices were posted on the door like, "Closed For Vacation" and "Closed For Remodeling". The matriarch owner who has been the moving force... More

La Nueva Posada is a wonderful restaurant. Peter, our server, is outstanding. He makes us feel like family. My favorite items are the carnitas burrito and the tostada. Brunch is exceptional too. Great margaritas!

LIVING SOCIAL USERS BEWARE!!! I was OVERCHARGED approx. $5 because we used a Living Social deal! The bill should have been around $11 but was mysteriously $23.20. The waitress hand wrote the bill very sloppy hoping we wouldn't notice the extra padding on the bill. When I asked the waitress about the bill she said it was sales tax and... More

When I arrived here, the waitress served us with a basket of tortilla chips and salsa sauce. For my lunch, I tried chicken enchiladas and horchata (Horchata is the name of several kinds of traditional beverages, made of ground almonds, sesame seeds, rice, barley, or tigernuts), I like them very much. The food portion is a big portion for me.... More
