The green chile stew and chile en nogada were excellent. The house margarita was tasty and I didn't miss the tequila. A little chilly near the windows on a cold night.

Went here with a group from a conference. This place was highly recommended and I have to say my rating of 3 is a stretch. The service was a bit slow and the food was average. I'm from San Antonio and know what good Mexican food tastes like and this is not up to standard.

While visiting Santa Fe my husband and I enjoyed dinner here. The restaurant was not very crowded, the waitress was great, very friendly. I really enjoyed the tamales, something I usually don't order and my husband like his meal. For dessert we ordered the cookies -- they were so good we ordered more to take with back to our hotel....

Had the posole and blue corn enchiladas and both were excellent. Service was excellent until they got busy but that is to be expected. Will come here every time I visit Santa Fe!

We were staying at a hotel a few doors down. It was kind of chilly, so decided to warm up at Casa Chimayo. You walk in and feel so comfortable. We started with the guacamole that had jalapenos mixed in. The chips were done in house, and the guacamole fixed the sinuses up just fine. It was a back heat... More

We are here because it got good reviews and we heard that it was on diners, drive ins, and dives. The food was good, but I think that it has been riding on the shows fame. A little overpriced.

As a single diner, I was a little neglected. I made it easy on my waiter by ordering an appetizer, entrée, and dessert at one time. Unfortunately, my water glass stayed empty more than full (I was thirsty unfortunately). I loved the food and will return.

We were seated right away and had a nice corner table where our dog wouldn't be too much of a bother. Perfect for us! Our waitress was very nice and offered suggestions. To start we ordered chips, salsa, and El Burro's (vanilla bean infused vodka mules). My entree was the Chicken Mole. The Mole was good and plentiful but I... 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!
