Great little new Mexican restaurant away from the crowds and noise

Great little New Mexican style Mexican food restaurant away from crowds and noise; very helpful staff and excellent food. I had a wonderful blue corn tortilla strada enchilada meal with a Negra Modella. YUMM!

I wish I could transport this restaurant back to Austin, TX so we could eat here more often. The meal we had was a favorite on our entire week-long trip. Located outside of the Plaza area, we drove there and parking was a bit of a trick - even though the restaurant was not extremely busy and it was May.... More

The food was very good and it was only a 2 block walk from our hotel. We had our 70lb dog with us, and while the staff was a little bit nervous at times, the brought him water and we were able to enjoy our meal with him at the table

The food was delicious. There were 6 of us and we all joyed our meals. The chile verde stew was amazing. I had the rib eye which was terrific as well. For dessert I tried the flan and that too was excellent. Overall a fine dining experience.

By far the best Mexican meal I've had. Chiles are handpicked, sauce is handmade, my meal felt like and tasted like homemade. Just wonderful. I had blue corn stacked chicken enchilada with green chile. It comes with rice that was just right and pinto beans. The overall flavor of the plate was perfect. I had bread pudding for dessert. Be...

So glad we found this gem, just 3 blocks from where we are staying. Sadly, though, we didn't try it until the night before we left. We will put this place on the top of our list for next visit. We both had the Blu Corn stacked enchiladas, mine with ground beef and mild ranchero sauce and my husband had... More

My fiance remembered Casa Chimayo from years ago so we searched the side streets and found this restaurant. We were not that hungry so we ordered

One of the best Mexican restaurants I’ve experienced in a long time (and I’ve experienced a couple hundred). The chile en nogada appetizer, an unusual but tasty traditional dish that’s hard to find, was great. So too were the stacked blue corn enchiladas with two different sauces, red and green, both superb. The natillas dessert was fine, as well. The... More
