At the entrance of Si Señor Restaurant one gets the feeling of stepping into a modern day hacienda. The fountain in the center of the restaurant, the wrought iron and graceful arches seen throughout, unsurpassed hospitality and ambiance, all simply accentuate that feeling. Stylish and timeless beauty is the only way to describe an interior that showcases such colorful murals and plentiful space.
For over 20 years, Si Señor Restaurant has consistently offered Southern New Mexico authentic Mexican food. The restaurant has perfected a seamless integration of quality food and service, stemming from the Castillo family’s commitment to excellence. Having begun as a small, family-run restaurant in their hometown of Deming, NM, the Castillo family has since opened Si Señor Restaurants in other locations in New Mexico and Arizona.
The restaurant’s attention to detail is evident from the moment you are greeted to the second you walk out the door. Your experience begins with tortilla chips that are served with one-of-a-kind salsas and dips…four delicious, different ones! Serving up rich, authentic dishes such as the Akela Chicken Breast and Hatch Green Chile Steak, Si Señor has a selection of foods to satisfy the most demanding tastes. Regardless of your selection, the entire menu captures the essence of Mexico with subtle influences of Southern New Mexico. Original family recipes as well as the exclusive use of Hatch Green Chile have undoubtedly made Si Señor among best Mexican restaurants in New Mexico. After you have enjoyed your entrée, you are treated to the best homemade sopapillas in the city.
When you and your friends are looking to linger over a Margarita, there is no place better or more suitable than Si Señor. The lounge offers unique, in-house created Margaritas as well as a full service bar in a relaxed atmosphere. The excellent selection of imported and domestic beer has made this hometown restaurant a magnet for locals and visitors alike. I asked people in the community to comment on Si Señor and while the food was a favorite part of their visit, many also commented on the ambiance that no other restaurant in Las Cruces can offer.
When asked about the success of the restaurants, Mr. Castillo says it can be largely attributed to all the people he has learned from in the many years he has been in the restaurant business. He adds that his loving, hardworking family and dedicated employees have also contribued immensely to the success. However, Mr. Castillo believes that Si Señor Restaurant is successful mainly because of
all the loyal customers who return time and time again.
Included in those who frequent Si Señor on occasion are the likes of Toby Keith! That’s right, country music Male Vocalist of the Year-2001 and Entertainer of the Year-2003. When in the area, he makes it a point to stop by and enjoy a relaxing meal in a secluded area of the restaurant. More recently, while at a concert here in Las Cruces, another country music great, Reba McEntire, visited the restaurant along with some of her staff and co-stars of the sitcom Reba. “This is exciting stuff,” said Sergio Castillo, “and we hope they continue coming back.”
The next time a home-cooked craving invades your taste buds or you’re having a hard time deciding where to go for lunch or dinner, remember that Si Señor is sure to have something on the menu to satisfy any appetite. And who knows, you may even see a celebrity while you are there.
