We returned to Casa Chimayo a year after our first visit and found the food still good. It is a New Mexican menu with all the usual things you should expect in New Mexico. The service is good and the prices are reasonable. There is...More

We stopped by Casa Chimayo for a early afternoon lunch on Saturday afternoon. Calling ahead, we did make sure that we could have our dog, Lily, on the patio. When we arrived they let us know we could only have her on the front patio,...More

Ate here with friends on a hot day. Sat outside but in the shade. Sangria was delicious as was the food. Service was fine. Guacamole was great!

Fantastic food, the good reputation is well deserved. Service was warm and friendly. The Adovada blue corn enchiladas were spicy and delicious. The bathrooms are awkward and tiny, so if possible use it someplace else first. Casa Chimayo kindly allowed me to order fry bread...More

We had dinner one Memorial weekend evening, and were able to do so without reservations. I had chicken enchiladas with a custard dessert. My wife had chile rellenos and flan. The enchiladas and rellenos are our standard test meals for New Mexican restaurants--and both passed...More

Charming, old building with great artwork, mitigated by bland mexican food and spotty service. My wife had huevos rancheros and I had blue corn tortillas, both christmas. The chili was bland and the food was not oven-hot. The one waiter had trouble keeping up with...More

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!
