Looking Back

This is what the restaurant looked like in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. The population of Las Cruces was about 38 thousand, a loaf of bread cost 25 cents, Gunsmoke was on tv and a Ford Galaxie was about $3200.

Our Dining Room

Our big restaurant located at 310 S. Mesqite street in Las Cruces has a large dining room of about 1872 square feet that can accommodate larger parties but also has private dining rooms and booths for more private dining. We feature a casual child friendly dining atmosphere where everyone will feel welcome. The large dining area has lots of windows for natural light and high ceilings that reflect it’s heritage as a Baptist Church. If you face the opposite wall as you walk in the front doors you can still see what was the old church baptismal. It’s now covered with a mural commemorating over 50 years of service to Las Cruces. Come in and take a look at the interesting architecture and have a great meal too!
