Meet Double Eagle

Known as the Crown Jewel of Old Mesilla, the Double Eagle is a historic hacienda-style home turned authentic New Mexican restaurant by day and fine dining steakhouse by night. The home was built in 1849 for the Maese family. Its Imperial Bar, grand dining room, and individual dining rooms make the Double Eagle an experience all its own. The Double Eagle has the only temperature- and climate-controlled meat aging room in the region and has earned the title of Best Steakhouse in New Mexico for many years.

The restaurant gets some of its reputation from its haunting past. When Señora Maese found her son and one of the servants together in his room, she killed them both in a rage. The couple’s ghosts are said to still be in the home today and most of the activity can be experienced in the Carlotta Room where they died.

Ambiance aside, both Pepper’s and Double Eagle serve delicious cuisine along with an extensive award-winning wine list, handcrafted cocktails, and more! Experience Historic Old Mesilla the right way, at the Double Eagle.
