I honestly can get better Mexican food at home (Chicago) I think so many people come here for the atmosphere. They do have a very large margarita list so I highly recommend this place for drinks.

This was basically a trip across the country, from Florida to California, moving my 93 year old dad. My father is from New Mexico, a rather small town northwest of Las Cruces. On the way, Dad knew exactly where to take us for great Mexican food. I should include that I am from Dallas and we know our Mexican food... More

While trying to find a place to eat on a recent visit to Las Cruces, NM, I called La Posta to see if I could eat there. Once someone from the kitchen came on the phone, I do not remember his name, sadly, I told him about my allergy and he immediately assured me there was no soy in their... More

Great atmosphere, they even have parrots. The chicken burrito had thigh meat in it, for $9 they gotta be kidding. The rice and beans were bland. They have spent a fortune decorating each room instead of buying white meat chicken

We went here looking for New Mexico mexican food. We had eaten here over 30 years ago and had good spicy mexican food. The ambiance was good But have to tell you the Mexican food was a real disappoinment. It was classical American Mexican food with little flavor or heat, Could not find my classical New Mexican dishes. So settled... More

La Posta is a New Mexican restaurant with great ambience, history and location. We first came here 45 years ago and only occasionally since then. Until this last visit we always found the food average. This time we stopped for lunch and ordered a red chile enchilada plate and taco plate. Both were very good especially the red chile enchilada.... More

Our server was Brett who was so attentive and informative and gave us the history on the restaurant and also suggested a few plates that are the favorites... More

Good New Mexico cuisine, had steak fajitas, meat was tender and delicious. My husband had mild sauce beef burrito, spicy meat with mild sauce it was delicious but very spicy for those who do not usually eat spicy food. My husband really enjoyed it. Portions were large. We finished out our meal with homemade flan and it was delicious. Service... More

tried a few meals there--endless combinations or classics like tamales or rellenos are all great. Atmosphere of the various dining rooms of the restaurant is delightful. Historical building.
