I have eaten here many times in years past, and on a recent trip I decided to give it a try again. The food was good as usual, and the price was reasonable. If you prefer an adult beverage with your meal, they have a lounge attached next door that is sort of a local watering hole. Nice people in... More

We had heard good things about Hillcrest and were not disappointed. If you like a family restaurant that's not part of a chain give this one a try.

The special the night we visited was BBQ ribs. I cannot say enough about how juicy, moist, flavorful and tender these ribs were. I have never had such meaty ribs that just fell apart. The only challenging part was thinking they would be like BBQ ribs we get in Texas that are covered in sauce. There was only a tiny... More

The service clubs love the Hillcrest, now the oldest restaurant in town. The food is not great, but the clubs offer inexpensive lasagna, spaghetti, and pancake days at reasonable prices. Good place to meet people and get caught up. Not a good choice for a great metal, however. Friendly service.

Asked the hotel to suggest a place to eat. She said all the locals go to Hillcrest. Good food and fair prices. Las Vegas, NM is a small town and we took the advice of the hotel staff. The food was excellent. The salsa was fresh and tasty, the entrees were a decent portions. We saw lots of families come... More

We loved the tacos! We both like cheddar cheese fried in a skillet so these were of interest to us. They fry cheese on the outside of the fresh corn tortillas then fold it over resulting in an intense cheese flavor. The salsa and green sauce were tasty- spicy, but not too hot for us. Our waitress Patsy was a... More

My family and I have been eating at The Hillcrest for years. It is highly recommended by the locals. Always great food, service, and atmosphere.
