We went in as a group of 6 for breakfast and we were very well taken care of by our server Yvonne (who went beyond the call of duty to provide a diaper out of her own bag when one of our team was caught short). The food is fabulous and well priced. They serve their entire menu all day... More

Delicious and reasonably priced. Everyone in our group was happy with their choices, including fajita salad, my tasty fajita wrap and burritos.

Small place in a neighborhood. Really good food and personal service. I loved my star tacos (pork & beef) and the beans, and the squash medley that came with the meal.

Second visit for breakfast in as many days. Our server, Luis, remembered, our preferences for tortillas and for bean consistency (whole vs re-fried) from yesterday and that we wanted coffee and water. The food is memorable because it is authentic and, in my opinion, prepared by people who care whether you enjoy it or not. This place is now on... More

We live in New Mexico but not in Las Cruces. It was nice to find an authentic New Mexican restaurant. Atmosphere is genuine. Servers were very friendly & helpful. Food was amazing!! Highly recommend if visiting Las Cruces.

Another white-washed Mexican restaurant. The chips n salsa were great, but everything else we ate was nothing special nor authentic. $20 bucks for two.

La Nueva Casita is a mainstay for our family. There are other great mexican restaurants in our area, but La Nueva Casita is our first choice. It is as small restaurant, built in the 1950s. The furnishings are true mexican and lend to the experience. The menu is not extensive, but everything is excellent. Both the red and green sauces... More

Wow. Fantastic food and wonderful service! I had the Tacos Estrella and was more than pleased with my choice. Son had the crispy tacos, husband had the fully stuffed shredded beef chimichanga and daughter had grilled cheese. All of our meals were absolutely perfect. Everything looks gorgeous on your plate and portions are more than enough. So happy we ventured... More
