Total disappointment with food. No taste. Waiters were fairly elegant but I had to repeat my request for chopped jalapeno to try to add something to the blandness. Finally was brought an un-chopped chili pepper. Nice room, ample parking but a tourist trap. Avoid.

Some of the best food in Las Cruces. This place is humongous. With the combination of good service, great food and the historical building you will not be disappointed in your visit here.

Worth having a meal here just to see the insides. So many rooms! Each with a different theme, all authentically decorated. Service was very accommodating. Food is strictly Mexican and authentic.

When you walk in, one of the first things you see are the parrots in their cages. Beautiful birds. The food is exceptional and plentiful. Nicely presented. The mole is quite good, and the burritos are huge. A great place to relax.
