Restaurant Tour


We have come a long way since our family started the El Pinto Restaurant in 1962. Featuring traditional New Mexican recipes from our grandmother Josephina Chavez-Griggs, we are proud to serve award-winning New Mexican food recognized internationally for being the flavor of New Mexico. We started with a small New Mexican restaurant in the beautiful Cottonwoods in the North Valley and expanded as our customer base increased and the demand for great red and green chile cuisine reached beyond our New Mexico home.
