We have eaten at La Nueva Casita Cafe a few times now. My only regret is not discovering it sooner! The food has been delicious every time and the service has been friendly. We'll be back again!

This is one of the oldest Mexican food restaurants in town, located in "the Mesquite street district". The menu is varied (it includes breakfast items), the service is very good, and the prices are reasonable.

We found this awesome place on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. I had the gorditas and they were the best I have ever had. If we are passing through Las Cruces again, we will definitely eat here.

Traveling through New Mexico, I searched for a place for lunch on TripAdvisor. We saw this was number 1, so I figured we wouldn't be disappointed. This was a home run! I had tostada lunch special for a ridiculously low price. Husband has the signature...More

Its fairly small restaurant but I'm sure if you call them ahead of time, they could probably accommodate your party. They would probably have to divide you into the "smaller" groups.
