Chalas of Mesilla

There are a handful of restaurants in Mesilla, NM but hands down one of my favorite places to eat is Chala’s Wood Fired Grill. Inspired by New Mexico favorites with a unique spin. They have salads, sandwiches, tacos, burritos, and enchiladas. Today I am going to feature two items on their menu that my husband and I love to enjoy.


The First showcase is the Chala’s world-famous “A mountain Burger”. This burger isn’t your typical burger I’m telling you what. Lets start with the bun homemade in-house as well as their own thick cured bacon also made in house. The best bacon you will ever have! Next is cheddar and green chili which makes it a New Mexico burger. The juicy burger combined with the smoked bacon and green chili is what Chala’s is known for. The A mountain Burger is everything you ever wanted in a burger.


The second showcase is another famous dish at Chala’s is the Chilacas, yes Chilacas. Let me tell you a little bit about these little tasty morsels. These tasty crispy masa boats of love are filled with chili con carne. Tender pieces of meat, smothered in red sauce with a little bit of cheese and the crisp masa shell. Do I need to say more?


Not only do they serve lunch and dinner, Chala’s is also open for brunch on Saturday and Sunday. During dinner time they also have featured items as well they change daily. They also have deserts that are to die for empanadas, carrot cake and my favorite “TRES LECHES CAKE”. The best tres leches cake I have ever had. It is so popular that they seem to run out of it all the time.


If you haven’t been to Chala’s yet its a must they have something for everyone. Whatever you are in the mood for they have you covered. There service is fantastic and treat you like a part of their family. We enjoy our food and experience every time.


Go visit them when you have a chance! Tell them Paige sent you…
