A light filled covered portal nestled in an historic Mesilla former hotel, this lovely little restaurant is festive, brightly colored and filled with tropical plants. The menu is mostly Mexican, with well prepared and beautifully presented dishes. A late 19th century bar provides a full array of drinks as well as beer and wine. Dining is casual and relaxed, but...

While the food was very delicious, especially the queso dip. The drinks were highly overpriced, $ 22 for a margarita that you can not taste the alcohol, not likely. The server recommended virgin daiquiris for the kids and I asked how much they were she said only a few dollars, ha, more like $ 16.00 for a 5 ounce drink.... More

Atmosphere in the courtyard is comfortable with brightly painted chairs and lots of plants. My chili rellano was tasty (and not smothered in sauce) and the margarita was good. Excellent service. The bar and dining areas around the courtyard are historical with tin ceilings, chandeliers, and lots of wood.

The menu has changed quite a bit since I have been there. They don't have the greek burger or ribs anymore. I got a burger and it was fabulous, but I miss the older menu items.

I've been searching for the best chili rellano in Las Cruces. I have been near and far. I think this place has the best rellano for sure. It is huge and packed with cheese. They always have a crispy breading that makes it even more better! Love this place!

Pepper's Cafe at the Double Eagle Restaurant on the Plaza. I have been known to judge a restaurant on their soups and Pepper's posole (pork and green chili) ranks in the top three I have ever had. And, I tried something new - a Cucumber Margarita. It was delightful. I have tried to replicate it once I got home: came... More

The environment is simply delightful... sadly that's where the positive stops. Prices where vaguely high, but not for a tourist trap (which this place definitely is)... and the food was... mundane and honestly tasted pre made and "old" like it had been sitting out a while. Save your money

What a steak!!! Been to all of the restaurants on the plaza and saved this for last. Wow! A great steak place in the middle of Tex-Mex country. Start with the green chili cheese wontons and then move on to the Breast of Chicken or the Chicken Adobe. If you are really hungry you gotta try the Delmonico Ribeye or... More
