Places to Dine in Las Cruces and Hatch?
For the Historical value alone you should dine @ La Posta de Mesilla. The food is above average SE New Mexican. I love their guacamole and the Campuesta Salad. It's a festive atmosphere.
For local fast food...Blake's Lotaburger for a green chili cheeseburger!
I've heard Sparky's in Hatch was a great place for a green chili cheesburger too! It's on my list for one of my upcoming trips!
