Naturally! I sure hope that they are good! I also hope that I can finally find the big, fat, juicy, burrito I've been searching for there! Gotta love them!!

Pretty lukewarm review, which is actually refreshing after the dozens and dozens of gushing and positive reviews about mediocre food in other LC restaurants. Sounds like it's geared toward kids in price and quality. I appreciate the honesty!

If this guy who wrote the article, says the food sucks, it's actually good, and vice versa.

Someone with a name like Carlos Lopez, you would think, would know better than to make mistakes like "red chile Colorado" the word "colorado" refers to the color of the chile which was already mentioned when you called it red; no need to also call it "Colorado" which seems to imply that it came from the state of the same name. Placing a~ over the n in "chile relleno" is also a mistake as the "n" in this case has the regular pronounciation not the Spanish √Ī.

Another local eatery with too much high octane chili in the food and too little decent food. I'll pass, thanks

These complainers would bitch about losing 50 pounds of ugly fat if they ate free weight watchers meals.

There are 250 + OR - places to eat in LC.

Pick one. Stop complaining with your mouth full.

Or stay home. Cook and gag yourselves.

Sheesh!

Or open a "choke and puke" of your own.

I went by earlier this week, excitedly knowing that they just opened, but I was saddened when they told me they didn't have any chorizo/potato/cheese burritos for breakfast, so I ended up having to give my business to Robert's. :(

Oh, Carlos is just annoyed that the Sun-News only paid for a $3 burrito this week, so that he couldn't put together any of the ridiculous adjective-packed phrases that usually characterize his writing.

Could be.

He should have gone to the ...One Stop, I think it's called, over between Valley/Avenida de Mesilla and Valley/Brown.

That's a shame that you'd limit yourself to such a small selection/vairety! Open youself up, i.e., look outside the box - duh!

I can't wait to go to this GD place. I love a beautiful burrito and these sound extra tasty. I definitely hope that they go light on the beans and heavy on the shredded beef, however. My doctor recently told me to lay off all the beans for awhile because of the gastrointestinal problems Iíve had. Awhile back, I took my wife out to Julioís on our anniversary. I was hoping to get some tail that night so I had a chimichanga and she ordered tacos el carbon or some nonsense like that. Unfortunately, the idiot chef there put some extra beans in my chimi and I ended up sharing right there in the restaurant. So not only did I not get any sweet action that night, I spent the next day scrubbing skid marks out of my drawers. I donít tell you all this so that youíll feel sorry for me, but to express my sincere hope that this place will serve wholesome burritos that donít cause such terrible gas. Also, I wanted to get some opinions on whether or not I might have a lawsuit against Julioís. They put way more beans in there than they should have and even added some Tabasco. Thatís false advertising if you ask me and maybe even tortuous business practice.
What is this 'shart'? That a typo?

Dear Language critic. Since you are a language critic, you probably know that the word you are after is "pronunciation".... "pronounciation" is not a word last I checked.
Second, I think you need to know that our dear friend Carlos is but a humble college student, innocently pecking away at his keyboard in hopes that one day, he will blossom into that world-class journalist he aspires to be. But alas, for now, young Carlos is forced to sing (or write) for his supper....daily risking irreparable damage to his sensitive palate while visiting every little roach hole in the Mesilla Valley. And why? Just so you and I can stay informed on the offerings of the innumerable fine dining establishments in the Las Cruces metropolitan area. So I say, kudos, young Carlos! Thanks for taking one for the culinary team! I for one am flattered by your selfless approach, unending candor, and creative approach to spelling and grammar.

I was looking forward to eating at this place, but it sounds like a very ordinary review. Has anyone else eaten there who can give a better synopsis?

I eat at this place all the time. Being in Law enforcement means we have to grab a bite whenever we can, often on the run. Usually my partner and I just grab an 8 piece bucket, but since we found this place it's one of our favorite. The crepes comes in both sweet and savory and they give very generous portions. I don't know what they put in their eggs, but they are so tasty that often I get a double serving. Also, they have a number of desserts to tempt your palette, including French Silk pie, Key Lime and the most gorgeous Baked Alaska that will keep you and your friends coming back again and again. Don't try the veal, though. That's the one dish they don't have a clue about.

Do you know if they serve anything with clam sauce?
