“Off the beaten path”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

We found this restaurant on the outskirts of the touristy square. We ate on the back patio and had a wonderful authentic meal from this family run restaurant. Great find. Live music when we were there on weekend. If you are looking for unfussy Santa Fe, this is it!

“Enjoyable!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

Worth a visit. Found this little restaurant during a downpour and they were great accommodating us. Got the Pollo with Mole sauce. DELISH! Husband liked the blue corn enchiladas. Nice find.

“Good location to Plaza Hotels”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

A nice little place with a menu offering the usual Southwestern fare. The service is very good and accomodating. As someone who always asks for no to very little seasoning, it was necessary for them to exchange pre-seasoned veggies for something else. The owner personally notified me that the new ones had come directly from their garden the previous day-- they were delicious! For a quiet, no hassle pre-opera meal, this was perfect for us.

“Still top of the charts!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Took several friends to one of our favorites and found it still at top form after a year away. The green chili stew, stuffed peppers, enchiladas, fresh corn tortillas, and tres leches cake were as delicious as ever. The sopa (bread pudding) was a bit dry, but nevertheless tasty. The outdoor patio in its ramshackle style is still the favorite place for most diners. It's easy to see why this place still ranks near the top of Santa Fe's great list of New Mexican food places. We enthusiastically recommend it to everyone we know. Bravo!

“Tasty New Mexican food with a northern NM twist”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

We had a nice lunch at the Casa Chimayo. The burrito was great (be sure to have it Christmas, with both red and green). The Rellenos were excellent as was the Pollo en Mole Rojo. The only disappointment (relatively speaking) were the tamales (a little dry). The only other comment is that the chile servings were smallish. We are more used to a smothering of chile, but I can understand that with the hand-crafted chile they serve, they may be reluctant to pour it on.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are pleased that you had another good experience at Casa Chimayo. You were correct in pointing out that the tamales were dry, and have already addressed it. We hope that you will be pleasantly surprised at our wonderful tamales the next time you come in.
