What do the Rolling Stones, Robert Redford, and Ozzie Osborne have in foodie common? They've all been to and eaten at this excellent restaurant. It's history is older than anyone reading this review. And they are still an excellent establishment. Plan on a wait weekends....More

Came for the carne adovada and was it worth it! It's one one of the best I ever had. Loved the ambiance and the food is just awesome. This is a very special place to us.

We ate at the restaurant on New Year’s Eve. We were a little nervous since we couldn’t get a reservation and just did a walk in. But we enjoyed the lounge while we waited for a table and they got us seated. Food is excellent!...More

Always a delight; been coming back year-after-year since 1990. Top- notch food; traditionally wonderful service; unique flavors; and, reasonable prices. Best Green Chile Stew and Tamales anywhere in the world.

Best place to eat in the Chimayo area. 50+ years old historic building still managed by award winning owner Mrs. H. who you still see with her walker working around the restaurant. True northern New Mexico food.

Went to Chimayo yesterday just for lunch at this restaurant. We didn’t have reservations but that wasn’t a problem. We visited the gift shop, bought some green chili mustard and shared a margarita at the bar while previewing the menu. After we got seated my...More
