“Cold and clammy”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Since when does going into an establishment that feels and smells (especially the bar/restroom area) of mildew and air fresher add to a dining experience. I have eaten here over the years as a guest of business leaders and I am appalled that anyone would think this place deserves the prices it gets for average food with an unchanging menu. The service is better than most in this town.

“Great Food and Atmosphere”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

We made our annual trip to Old Mesilla and always stop at the Double Eagle. The interior patio area and bar are wonderful in preserving the architecture and décor of the era. There's a lot of history in this grand old building in the heart of La Mesilla. I had the Big Jack Chili Rellenos with a cup of Tortilla soup, and my wife the Grilled Chicken Club. The food was excellent as usual and the margaritas were great. The "Death by Chocolate" dessert was generous and decadent. Everything was perfect except for the service. We usually have outstanding service, but today I can't tell if it was the two large parties or something else, but we waited quite a while for our drinks that were just sitting on the bar, and everything just seemed very slow. The food was hot, but we seemed to wait a long time before we got water, drinks, and chips and salsa. I'll write this off a simply a bad day. We will be back, for sure!

“Great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

First, let me clarify that we ate within Double Eagle for lunch at the outdoor café. We had some wonderfully unique appetizers and had some great margarita's. We plan to return and try the more formal area for dinner.

“A must do in Las Cruces”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

From the outside it does not look much, but step inside it is like a different world. The decor is worth a visit, and the food is great. This is a high end steak house, and the bill will reflect that fact. Perfect place for a special dinner.
