#74? No way! This food paradise should be moved WAY UP in the listings. Tops on our list as well the Triple D pick list. The blue corn enchiladas Guy F. recommended were top notch, as well the goat cheese tamale and the traditional pork tamale, and everything in between. I adore tender handmade tamales and know how hard they... More

Friends in Ruidoso told us about Casa Chimayo. We had the pleasure of sitting in the small restaurant with the owners. They were delightful and asked us for feedback. The margaritas were really great. I had some blue corn enchiladas that were outstanding. I had enough for lunch the next day also. My husband had the Plato de Truchas which... More

Why is this restaurant not lauded in every guide book? Excellent value, family run, delicious everything and loaded with New Mexican atmosphere. If we ever visit Santa Fe again, we will have dinner here. A can't miss! Have the dessert!!

It was Christmas night and we had just pulled into Santa Fe and quite hungry. We did not have reservations but Casa Chimayo found us a tiny table which was perfect. We saw that Diners, Drive-ins and Dives had featured the blue corn calabacita enchiladas and jumped at the chance to try something new. WOW! Excellent is too mild of... More

Recently went there for dinner with my wife and we had a great time. The food is very good and so is the price. It's also a cool, laid back atmosphere. Definitely worth trying if you're in the mood for a good Mexican food at a good price.

My wife ordered the blue corn tortilla enchiladas, and loved them. As I've seen other places in New Mexico, there is no hard liquor served. The margaritas are made from agave wine. Wine and beer are served. The guacamole came with some corn relish on top, and it was wonderful. Since it is made with jalape√Īo, I was worried that... More

Walked there from the Old Santa Fe Inn at the recommendation of the front desk. Local flair and authentic Mexican food. Blue corn enchiladas featured on the tv show Diners Drive-ins and Dives were spot on delish! Had it "Christmas" with red AND green sauce. The cucumber jalepeno Margarita was a treat. Generous portions and really good guacamole and chips... More

It was Christmas day - lunch time in Santa Fe. Not many restaurants open that day and luckily we found this little gem literally a few steps away from the Hilton hotel. We got excellent service and great home cooked style food. Turns out that this is a family restaurant preparing all fare from scratch and fresh on site. We... More
