This restaurant is so steeped in history, its offerings so simple, and yet so perfect. It is the place of wedding parties, and is totally comfortable for a walk-in traveler. The food is exquisite, the margaritas perfection. I have eaten here twice, each with a...More

Best place to eat in the Chimayo area. 50+ years old historic building still managed by award winning owner Mrs. H. who you still see with her walker working around the restaurant. True northern New Mexico food.

Went to Chimayo yesterday just for lunch at this restaurant. We didn’t have reservations but that wasn’t a problem. We visited the gift shop, bought some green chili mustard and shared a margarita at the bar while previewing the menu. After we got seated my...More

It had been awhile since we had eaten here. It seemed to me that they had a greatly expanded menu. We had delicious food. We come to New Mexico partly for the food and the food here is just about as good as it gets.

This restaurant is for tourist apparently. It is highly over rated as far as good New Mexican food. No heat or much spice used. More Tex Mex than anything. We were really disappointed after hearing everything about it.

We travel to New Mexico a few times a year to see family, and we eat out most meals. We have experienced lots of good New Mexican restaurants throughout the state, but I think this one might be my new favorite one. My chile rellenos...More
