Casa Chimayo’s traditional approach to preparing New Mexican cuisine stems from Don Timoteo’s insistence that food is prepared in the tradition of his grandmother.  Guy Fieri documents this in a segment on his popular Food Network show, “ Diners, Drive-ins and Dives," titled, “Aces Of Authenticity .”

New Mexican cuisine, or as Don Timoteo refers to it, "comida de  Nueva España” has evolved from a blending of Spanish and Native American culture, ingredients, and traditions, resulting in a culinary experience like no other.  Casa Chimayo serves authentic New Mexican dishes such as:  red and green chile, “frijoles de la olla” (pinto beans), posole, flour tortillas, tamales, atole, calabacítas, and more—each prepared “homestyle”—using Grandma's recipes and much love!
Meet The Team
Don Timoteo is the patriarch of the restaurant.  His vision and keen memory keep the memories alive and he is always willing to share his stories with guests.  He likes to say that Casa Chimayo is not just a restaurant, but a destination, and he likes to make everyone feel like they are a part of the family.  

The restaurant would not be possible without our employees, who work hard to make Don Timoteo's vision a reality every day!
