Las Cruces takeout recs?

A coworker's close relative recently died. The family is located in Las Cruces. A bunch of us at work (in California) would like to get the family some gift certificates or somesuch for a restaurant that does good takeout. They apparently don't have any specific food likes or dislikes, but I'd like to go with something that offers a lot of options. Delivery might be a nice option, also. General location is east of highway 25, near the university.

Can anyone offer any suggestions?

Thanks for any help.

  1. Maybe you have guessed that Las Cruces is NOT a foodie sort of place, so much so, no one is checking Chowhound for LC questions and there are no responses to your take-out question. I have lived here 2.5 years and I have not found any good take-out places. In the area you mentioned is Lorenzos, an OK Italian place that does decent pizza and any of their meals can be made to take-out. There are NO good, delis, chinese, seafood, greek, thai, vietnamese, sushi etc. Mexican and southwestern places abound and all of them have take-out but nothing special and nothing you can't get here on a daily bases. Sorry about the late post but I hope you came up with something else for the family.
