Vado Reviews

Vado has beautiful nature and is filled with potential. Vado could be considered "low-income" with minorities as the majority, making it an easy area to be taken advantage of. These vulnerable communities have been subjected to the great disturbance of the new speedway built near their homes, for example. The national monument land is precious and deserves more protection as it is home to lots of wildlife and has many hidden wonders.

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.
