Vado Reviews

Well first in Vado there really isn't much. The gas stations are really the spotlight of the town. There are three of them and they all have good service, good hygiene, and great restrooms. Then there is Family Dollar and Dollar General the only retail stores there and they are good a little messy sometimes but good service. Then there are only two restaurants as a matter of fact they're each located in a gas station. I didn't really eat there but I heard that they were not bad it was almost always full of people so that was a good sign. Then last were a couple of auto shops I visited them several times and they were actually pretty good, always on task and very friendly. So that is all there is to Vado a little town fifteen miles south of Las Cruces, New Mexico.
