Description: Chimayo Stone Fired Kitchen is a contemporary American bistro with a southwestern flair. Fresh salads, creative small plates, artisanal pizzas, and fire-roasted steaks, chicken and seafood are prepared in twin 600+ degree stone hearth ovens in an open kitchen. The Owners have restored the interior of the historic Century Building on Main Avenue, revealing turn-of-the century Carnegie steel support beams, the original maple hardwood floor and decorative tin ceiling tiles, and the original brick wall. These historical elements, along with the expo kitchen, rollup windows, and 35-foot curved bar, create an urban industrial loft setting for a unique Durango dining experience.

“Great Food, Good Value”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

My sister, husband and I loved our food and the friendly, efficient service at Chimayo. We started with excellent specialty drinks from the bar and the Chimayo pizza. The avocado, pulled pork, and peppers were a perfect combination, and the crust was crispy and just the right thickness. Then 2 of us had the pasta which was perfectly seasoned and cooked--the best I've had in Durango. (You can request to adjust the amount of heat in it.) My husband had the special, halibut tacos which he loved--a great deal at $12 for two big tacos. We washed all this down with a bottle of Kline Cashmere and were impressed by the reasonably priced, but diverse wine list. For dessert we had the banana tart which was wonderful. We could not have been happier with the top notch quality of the food, excellent service, and modest prices. Chimayo is a winner.
