One of my favorite things to do with clients who are relocating is take them out to eat. Southern New Mexico has the most unique and wonderful cuisine and I love sharing it with newcomers.

I have a long list of great places to eat in Las Cruces. Usually you'd have to go out to eat with me to get access to it. This week I decided to start sharing it in the first of what will probably end up being a long series of blogs on local restaurants. First up, three places you may not know about.

1. Los Compas

Most locals know about Los Compas. That's because it serves traditional southern New Mexico Mexican food. Locals are very picky of their Mexican food. Just ask Garduno's. At Los Compas you can get excellent traditional Menudo, and great shredded beef tacos, but I love their breakfast. Whether it's a green chile breakfast burrito or a plate of Machaca, Los Compas hits the spot. They're so good that they recently opened up their third location.

2. Boba Cafe

Boba Cafe has the only dinner cabaret in Las Cruces. Its food is pretty good too. This unique cafe has an excellent menu to sandwiches, soups and salads that make it a great place for lunch. Their appetizers are also excellent. I suggest the Spicy Krab Wantons. It's a friendly place with unique decorations and a happy staff. The cabaret tops it all off making it a unique find in Las Cruces. To learn more read their most recent Cabaret Review

3. International Delights

This is my go-to spot if I'm downtown and looking for a mid-morning coffee or a great lunch. International Delights is the best Middle Eastern / Greek food restaurant in town. If you've never had a dolma or a gyro, then you really should get out and try International Delights. They have free WiFi, great coffee and a relaxing environment with nice people.

So here are 3 places that many folks coming through town never find. When people visit they either want to visit the common tourist places or the hidden treasures. When it's the later I usually take them to one of the above. I have more, so stay tuned for future posts on great restaurants in Las Cruces.

If you're thinking about relocating to Las Cruces let us take you around and introduce you to our great town. We would love to take you out to eat at one of our hidden treasures.
