Simply the best local food at a great price. Locals eat here ,unassuming service is very good. Try one of their special margaritas. Chili relleno was superb.

My wife and I ate lunch here and enjoyed it very much. Its kind of a hole in the wall place but we loved the food, atmosphere and staff. Very good value.

While searching for pet-friendly restaurants in Santa Fe, we found Casa Chimayo. We were seated in the cozy outdoor patio area with our 2 dogs (they even brought our dogs water), and enjoyed a wonderful meal of margaritas, chips and salsa, and blue corn enchiladas (recommended by Guy Fieri on Diner's Drive-ins and Dives).

The blue corn enchiladas were wonderful. The goat milk flan was the best we've ever tasted a anywhere. Definitely a "go again" restaurant.

Outside of their building looks pretty shabby for it's location near the Hilton. But they have some good food inside. I usally stick with burritos or quesadillas. This time I had the quesadilla with pieces of steak- yum. Saw people eating fajitas that looked good, but they are too pricey there.
