“Just a great spot for breakfast!”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

We went to Nellie's for breakfast every morning we stayed in Las Cruces. I loved the huevos rancheros, with the green chili sauce. After a couple of visits, we were treated like family.

“Great breakfast, lunch place - a real local find”
Reviewed 26 March 2014 via mobile

Excellent, friendly service,
With fresh salsa and chips.
Nice combinations on the platter .
And it is a favorite local restaurant,
Where patrons return to frequently and are
Acknowledged and appreciated.

Good prices

“Great Mexican food in Las Cruces”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

This is definitely one of my favorite places to eat... the food is excellent, off sets the waiting time to get in and sometimes the service is slow -- not enough wait staff -- but the are family owned and operated and it shows in the quality of their food. They are very friendly and wanting you to have the best experience. If you are in town... you have to try it out.. .the one draw back is they are only open until 2pm...

“Best Red Chili”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

We have been eating at Nellies for twenty years! Often on Saturdays. The red chili is never bitter,or burned.
The green chili is fabulous too. It is usually a bit of a wait to get in and sometimes the service does not go as fast as you might like but the food and the family that makes it are so worth any slight felt concerning service.
Don't be afraid to try new foods they are all good at this restaurant .

“great green chili”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

This is a really clean down home restaurant with friendly wait staff. Everything I have had was very good. Only open until 2 pm, great for breakfast Off the main streets a little difficult to find but worth it. They are great about putting green chili on anything It is a must stop while in Las Cruces.
