This restaurant has good food, friendly staff and good drinks. There are paper flowers on the tables that are beautiful and in bright colors. The drinks come with them too.

This restaurant was close to my hotel and had been on DDD. The food was average. Chips were thick, under salted and some were stale. Chicken blue corn enchiladas with Christmas chile sauces was good. Chile sauces were the star of the dish. Very flavorful...More

Love the atmosphere of Casa Chimayo, décor and colors so inviting and authentic for the location. Food was fabulous, loved trying the recipes of the long standing restaurant and delicious authentic Spanish-Indian taste. Highly recommend.

We accidentally found this restaurant and are so glad we did. The food was exceptional, with many of the ingredients locally sourced. The pineapple jalapeno margarita was delicious! Family friendly; my picky eaters were happy.

Visited this restaurant based on reviews. Decent selection of traditional Santa Fe Mexican dishes. Disappointed that the restaurant only served wine margaritas. No complaints about the food, but it was nothing special to me. I had the blue chicken enchiladas which were featured on diners...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!
