We went to this restaurant because it was dog friendly and we were traveling with our two pups. They treated our pups like paying guests - water & treats. The food was great and the wine pours were generous. The staff was friendly & helpful.

We should have known...as we walked in the door to make a reservation for the next day, the staff simply walked around us and ignored us (and this was way before the dinner crowd would generally show up). We found the food nothing special, the...More

Everyone at our table of 5 had great food! The server was very nice and saved one person from an ordering "mistake." Highly recommend.

Chips & salsa available for additional cost. House Margarita was delicious. The menu does not have many options, absolutely no seafood on the menu.

Th3e most unique flavor and choice of foods. This place more Spanish type of meals than mexican. Home made guacamole, and many choices of entrees. They can do Gluten Free and offer goat cheese for non-dairy cheese options.

Hotel recommended this restaurant for a close by place we could walk to that would have good Southwestern food. A very small place and kind of funky but the food was very good. Margaritas also very good. Not expensive and good service.

Had their blue corn enchilada and a tamale, was very good. The atmosphere is quaint and a little crowded. The staff was very friend and helpful with suggestions. Would go back again.

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!
