Don't pass up this unassuming building when visiting the Elephant Butte area, especially if you're near the state park. We stopped in to give it a try and ordered a chile relleno plate (included rice and beans) with green sauce or, if you prefer, order it with red sauce or, red and green a.k.a. "Christmas." We also ordered 3 brisket... More

We all loved our food: tacos, burritos, homemade chips with good guacamole. The chile was a bit less spicy than expected but very flavorful. Tacos come with beans and rice that are also quite yummy. Very friendly service and a fun atmosphere. We will definitely be coming back anytime we are in the area.

Casa Tacos is one of the best toco joints in southern New Mexico if your in the area worth the detour off the highway for some great grub. Dinning area is now enclosed so you dont have to freeze while eating. Try the chili frys there great

Good food in a fast food setting. Nothing fancy and it is pretty much self-serve. Everyone was very nice and helpful.

This place isn't open as much as I'd like, but when it is it is always excellent and packed. It's not exactly "real" New Mexican food, but it's very good.

I stopped at this little Taco place for a quick supper, one of the special that night was a Adobo Chicken Burrito smother with green sauce, beans and rice. It was very tasty and at a reasoanably good price. I am waiting for Monday night, they have $1.50 taco night

Pretty good for semi fast food. Had cheese and beef enchiladas (their special for the night) and nachos (very tasty) with tip - $12. Will go back for Taco Monday.

Great American/ Mexican food. The service is excellent, and fast. They have a good selection of food. Try the deep fried giant mushrooms, they are fantastic.
