A Great Meal full of History!

Really enjoyable authentic and delish Southwestern/Mexican meal with an incredibly unique décor and cultural environ! Even before you walk into this captivating old Southwestern great food, you’re mesmerized by the architecture, ambience and design which immediately transports you back 150 years! On the inside, this nostalgic Southwestern Eatery shows the years of attention and interest put forth by a family who is ingrained in the not only the heritage in the décor and style of the Southwest, but family and not to mention, food! According to the restaurant’s website, ‘La Posta Compound, wherein restaurant sits on dates back to the 1840’s, and is on the National Register of Historic Buildings. The structure is Territorial Style with a zaguan leading into a patio now used as a lobby for the restaurant and displays tropical plants, birds and fish.’ It’s a fascinating historical museum like environment, where you can enjoy the traditional eats within a traditional and elaborate environ, enhancing the service, décor and typical food! We started with the traditional servings of Chips and Salsa and ordered a fabulous Mesilla Valley Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita ~ a blend of Sauza Blue 100% Agave Silver Tequila, muddled cucumber slices and jalapeños, fresh lime juice and agave nectar. Served in a margarita glass incredibly and artistically rimmed with local honey, crushed pecans & green chile salt… this is highly recommended. It was served and a huge Margarita goblet, which lasted me throughout the dinner! My Wife had the Sangria ‘Rita: A delicious marbling of our fruity sangria and a frozen La Posta ‘Rita’. For dinner I decided on a meal that would incorporate a good chunk of the House’s offerings with their La Posta Combination Plate which consists of a Folded Taco, a really well prepared Chile Relleno and a fabulous Green Chile Enchilada with ground beef served with terrific refritos beans and rice; My Wife decided on the Combination Plate #2 including an excellent Rolled Red Enchilada, a very good Red Chile con Carne, 2 Rolled Tacos, frijoles, Mexican Rice and slaw. I might add, the prices of the delectable entrees were incredibly modest, considering both the amount of food served, and the location’s size as well as highlights experienced. La Posta de Mesilla Restaurant is definitively a must visit for anyone, hungry or not, interested in ‘living’ the Old Southwest in the present, as well as enjoying the Old World’s history today. We hope you can enjoy La Posta as much as we did! Bon appétit!
