Approximately five hours from Summit County is the town of Chimayó, New Mexico, where the rare native Chimayó chile pepper grows in dirt that is said to have healing powers, thus making this pepper very special. So, it’s no coincidence that Chimayo Grill’s most popular and bestseller entrees, such as Baja Fish and Baja Shrimp Tacos and Burritos, homemade Chili Rellenos and grilled marinated steak, all contain this mild, sweet and smoky pepper. Chimayo Grill is a scratch kitchen that prepares everything onsite (except tortillas) with fresh ingredients. Other than Baja and grilled fish and shrimp items, you can also find classics such as grilled quesadillas, nachos and pork green chile. Because they have a built-to-order concept, the combinations you can create are endless. Chimayo is a fast-casual restaurant, locally owned and operated since 1998. We recommend trying their famous White Sauce.
