Tasty Evening

We had dinner here right before heading out to the Opera. Lots of nice food choices, pleasant outdoor ambience, and really helpful wait staff made for a nice, quick meal that didn't break the bank!

We got there a little early for dinner. The Indian Market was that weekend and we didn't want to go to the square in fear that we would have to wait for a table. When we got there the owner was at the front door on her laptop. A little weird but she greeted everybody coming in and wished us... More

We were looking for a place for dinner near the Georgia O'Keefe Museum, and just kind of stumbled on this little gem. The food was good and filling. We had enchiladas, local trout, and other New Mexican fare. The service was terrific. They have an outside patio, and when rain threatened, there would have been an inside area. Would definitely...

This restaurant was featured on Diners, Driveins and Dives and was a short walk from our hotel. We went for lunch. Started with the guacamole. Great stuff and a huge portion. Unfortunately it was marred by a bowl of what seemed to be flour tortilla chips, which really seemed like pita chips. I am from Texas and just naturally expect... More

Found this place by accident... it was the best surprise. My mom always hopes to find New Mexican style food when she visits the Albuquerque area. We were in Santa Fe for a memorial and came across Casa Chimayo. When my mom saw beans and Chicos on the menu she couldn't believe it, it was delicious! I had the guacamole,... More

As local New Mexicans we really appreciate home made style red & green chile. Casa Chimayo delivered...we really enjoyed our brunch at the bar with Kerri (sp)...he was friendly and professional.

Very cool little neighborhood restaurant with open air patio (& inside restaurant, but who wants to sit there when you have spectacular weather?) that is fun, funky and very cool. Food was the BEST Mexican we have ever eaten (even from Mexico) and the ambience was chill, laid back, funky - perfect for a nice dinner. Local brewed beer was... More

This is one of the must try restaurants in Santa Fe. If possible eat out on the patio. The service is really amazing because everyone is so welcoming and happy. We started with chips, salsa and guacamole. The first chips were soggy, so they brought us a new basket that was just out of the frier. The chips were crispy,... More
