Read about it on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives and had to go. Got the triple D special (they were really capitalizing on it) blue corn stacked enchiladas with red and green chili sauce (you could have one or the other but I was in to trying the new stuff) it wasn't bad but it wasn't as great as I expected...

We ate her because it was on Diners, Drive-ins & Dives. The place has lots of personality and the wait staff were excellent. But, for the dollar value I don't think I would come here again. I had the Chile Verde soup and my gal had the Blue corn enchiladas. The food was tasty and good. However, We both left... More

Lovely patio and good with our dogs. Service was very good and so was the food. We thought about going there again the next night, but decided to try something else at the last minute. I would certainly recommend it.

Very fun place and great food. Eat outside! The owners love to talk to you as you come in. The patio needs some updating. But it really does not matter it is part of the charm.

After taking classes at the Santa Fe Cooking School we asked the instructor where we could find Chili en Nogada in Santa Fe. We were told this nearby place would have it and that the instructors liked to go here after work. We tried it and liked it a lot. This time we brought another couple with us and we... More

Growing up in New Mexico I have a definite spiritual affinity for everything Northern New Mexico. I love the diversity of the culture and people, the climate and the crystal clear blue skies that the artists love to paint, the history, the architecture, and most of all the FOOD. I would love Casa Chimayo just because of the histories of... More

We were a party of 5 and 4 of us tried this specialty in 4 different variations! Mine had the squash, which was delicious! Service was friendly and loved the... More

It's a cute, New Mexican looking restaurant. We sat outside in the patio with our dogs. They have the dried chiles hanging everywhere. We had the stuff poblano pepper: in a red chile sauce, stuffed with apricots, stew, raisins, etc. with a cream cheese, walnut sauce on top. So delicious! And the waiter was really nice, what we ordered is... More

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.
