While on a road trip from Texas to California we read about La Nueva Casita Café on trip advisor and decided to try it. This was a wonderful experience. It is a neighborhood café with a lot of locals. The food was excellent and service was quick and friendly. spThe chips and salsa were excellent but the salsa was spicy... More

This is a terrific little place in a unique area. The street tacos are delicious. My son had the enchiladas with the red chile sauce. Beware: These aren't for the light hearted with he heat. New Mexico red and green chiles are normally very spicy. The beans were not out of a can. Everything was fresh. The guacamole was great... More

Looks like a dive but those are the places to get the most authentic, best tasting food. The salsa was spicy and good. I had the chef special Estrella Tacos which were good but made different from the menu because I'm told the chef was new, but they were fantastic anyway. I'd happily go here again.

The food was great - the "real deal" Mexican cuisine! Prices were very reasonable and lots of menu selections to choose from.

I have visited thousands of restaurants and eating places all over the world. I always look for local places and try to stay away from the chains and stereo typed places which make you feel claustrophobic and uneasy. While in Las Cruces for the New Year weekend we visited this place for a brunch on the 1st of January ,... More

I'm a New Mexican and love zippy green chile. The green chile chicken enchilada's are without a doubt, the best that I've ever had. Absolutely no atmosphere, but you didn't care when you had a plate of heaven in front of you. Very nice staff, they took good care of us. I will go back repeatedly.

The salsa was hot and spicy, and the carne asada had tons of flavor. The garnishes on the combination plate surprised with subtle savory spices. The rellenos were good, but I would have liked them a bit more crispy.

This place was jammed with locals at lunch time, but after getting our food, we couldn't understand why the place was so popular. The chips were fine and the salsa was nice and hot, but our entrees were mediocre. My chile relleno wasn't very good, and my dining partner wasn't very happy with his burrito either. I guess we were... More
