Here is what the locals are saying…

Best Steak Ever
No kidding- the best steak ever. And the pork chop is amazing too. Go in and ask for the specials – I don’t order off the menu- I order the specials !

Authentic food and service
This restaurant was a recommendation from our hotel and really delivered. It is small but makes a point of only using fresh ingredients. They have no freezer or microwave. We had 2 of the specials. The steak and pork were perfect. The sauces were superb. You cannot beat their food.

Wonderful Food in a friendly atmosphere!
We have been here several times and never been disappointed. My husband absolutely LOVES their food! I have to work around some food allergies but the staff is very helpful. Seating area is simply decorated and lets the food speak for itself. It should be a “Don’t miss” when you are in Las Cruces!
