Went here on a beautiful late April day for happy hour. The place was only a two minute walk from our hotel so we thought we’d grab a drink or two outside. They do have a little outside courtyard where you can get food and...More

Fresh & tasty food! A little bland for our taste but likely best for your typical tourist. Great service and atmosphere. Try the Green Chili beer, very flavorful! Thanks for a great lunch!

This place was a bit understaffed. Accommodating, but they actually charged for chips and salsa. Who does that? I'm from Texas and that is just not done. The taco place was delicious, but alas, I couldn't put salsa on it, or I would have had...More

The flavors are New Mexico. Strong not stinging. Out-of-the-ordinary drink selections. Veggie enchiladas was great.

We are here twice in three days! Very good and authentic. Dishes are pretty rich but I guess everywhere we went in Santa Fe was the same. Guacamole appetizer was excellent!

We enjoyed this family/homily restaurant. The food is good, moderately priced, and can be enjoyed with a good margarita.

Between the whole family over two days, we probably tried about everything. With the exception of the crispy lamb (which was fine but weird) the dishes were great, and the service fast and friendly.

Casa Chimayo’s traditional approach to preparing authentic New Mexican cuisine, or “Comida de Nueva España,” as Don Timoteo, the patriarch of the restaurant, refers to it, comes from his commitment to using Grandma’s recipes and local ingredients. Guy Fieri featured Casa Chimayo in a segment titled “Aces Of Authenticity,” on his popular Food Network show “Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, showcasing their popular blue corn enchiladas! New Mexican cuisine has evolved from a blending of Spanish and Native American ingredients, resulting in a culinary experience like no other. Don Timoteo is proud to serve authentic New Mexican dishes using fresh, local ingredients such as: red and green chile, corn, beans, blue corn, posole, tortillas, tamales, atole, and more!
