This restaurant was featured on Diners, Driveins and Dives and was a short walk from our hotel. We went for lunch. Started with the guacamole. Great stuff and a huge portion. Unfortunately it was marred by a bowl of what seemed to be flour tortilla chips, which really seemed like pita chips. I am from Texas and just naturally expect... More

Found this place by accident... it was the best surprise. My mom always hopes to find New Mexican style food when she visits the Albuquerque area. We were in Santa Fe for a memorial and came across Casa Chimayo. When my mom saw beans and Chicos on the menu she couldn't believe it, it was delicious! I had the guacamole,... More

Very cool little neighborhood restaurant with open air patio (& inside restaurant, but who wants to sit there when you have spectacular weather?) that is fun, funky and very cool. Food was the BEST Mexican we have ever eaten (even from Mexico) and the ambience was chill, laid back, funky - perfect for a nice dinner. Local brewed beer was... More

This is one of the must try restaurants in Santa Fe. If possible eat out on the patio. The service is really amazing because everyone is so welcoming and happy. We started with chips, salsa and guacamole. The first chips were soggy, so they brought us a new basket that was just out of the frier. The chips were crispy,... More

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise after we'd had a number of misses at better known and more expensive Santa Fe restaurants. The chips were very good -- crispy and not greasy. The chile relleno was also very good but what stood out for me were the side of beans. I'm not a big bean eater but I finished every... More

The food was so delicious! I tried a beef stuffed sopapilla and would recommend it. Ask for the red and green sauce (called Christmas) on the side so you can decide which you like best. Desserts were suburb.

After a long road trip we stopped in Santa Fe just to eat at this place which both my mom and my best friend's mom recommended. It was worth the extra miles to stop. had some local beers with our four course meals

Saw this restaurant featured on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. So I had to go. They featured the Triple D selections and I was just about to order it, when I saw Trout on the menu. Hadn't had trout in years, so I ordered it. It was great! Nice crust, flaky, not overcooked. Cook did a great job. Would not... More
