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.

Try to catch it during happy hour for a margarita, esp. a prickly pear margarita. It's usually pretty easy to find a parking meter on the street.

This restaurant captures the old world flavors of New Mexico with locally sources ingredients in a truly spectacular way. The restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside - inside it is quaint with small tables, kind of tightly packed together. Don't let this image...More

My husband and I recently had dinner there. The quality of the food was quite nice and service was good. The choices of wine and beers were sufficient. They serve traditional New Mexico dishes. Nothing spectacular, but I’ve definitely eaten worse many places. It is...More

Lovely atmosphere and super cute place. But the food was average and nothing spectacular. If the food was better, I would definitely come back! :-)

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!
