I simply love Rancho de Chimayo restaurant. This was my second visit. I brought my family this time and we sat outside on the tiered patio. The food is delicious at a reasonable price. Don't miss the Chimayo cocktail!

We split the Sampler platter with half red and half green chili sauces. The platter was simply wonderful and descriptions were unable to tell us just how good this meal was. The sopapita was tasty. The beans and hominy were great sides. The pork featured...More
