Fodor's Expert Review La Posta

$ Old Mesilla Mexican

Once a way station for the Butterfield Overland Mail and Wells Fargo stagecoaches, this restaurant in an old adobe structure has hosted many celebrities through the years, including Bob Hope and Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa. Some of the Mexican recipes here date back more than a century; among the best menu choices are tostadas compuestos (red or green chile, meat, and pinto beans in tortilla shells), and enchiladas with red or green chile. Exotic birds and tropical fish inhabit the lushly planted atrium.
