Restaurant Suggestions for Nogales AZ and Lordsburg NM

TripAdvisor suggest that for Lordsburg there are really only a couple of choices.

For Nogales, there appear to be several Mexican restaurants that are very highly rated/reviewed.

Anyone with personal experience of either place?

My Nogales experience is that literally every Mexican place we ate was delicious, from sit-down and fancy to stand up outside a little taco hut. I recall that there were several meals featuring poblano peppers in a sort of Sonoran or New Mexican style which were particularly toothsome.

I don't remember the specific restaurants, just the overall impression that we were spoiled for choice with Mexican food options.

The lodging choices, however, didn't come in for such high esteem, nor did the border crossing festivities.

It's a little north of Nogales, but Elvira's is lovely.

Ended up a Zula's for lunch

Was okay, not outstanding. Best thing was the fried-just-then flour tortilla chips and salsa. But unlike most Mexican restaurants of my acquaintance, the chips and salsa were not free.

"Restaurant Bar La Roca" in Nogales (Mexico side of border) is very nice. They have a buffet (maybe weekends only) and singers who will serenade you at your table for a reasonable fee.
