About Chimayo Grill

Our Story


Chimayo Grill is a locally-owned and operated fast-casual restaurant that has been slinging tacos and burritos since 1998 when the doors first opened in Dillon, Colorado. Not a chain, although there have been a couple of other locations in Summit and Eagle Counties that have since been sold and operate under new concepts before new ownership came into play in 2008.

In 2008, Chimayo Grill was acquired by a long-time Summit County local couple. The duo kept up with Chimayo's scratch-kitchen mission. For example, their popular Baja Fish and Baja Shrimp are hand-breaded to order, not frozen and pre-battered. The Chimayo crew is skilled in chopping, prepping, cooking and they do so from raw to serve. 

Chimayo Grill recently expanded to add a sister store, Baja Chimayó, to the brand. Located in Silverthorne, Colorado's Bluebird Market Hall, this location offers the same signature dishes along with a rotating menu of a variety of tacos, burritos, and desserts. Baja Chimayó will use the space as a test kitchen and to further explore into the cuisine.

Both Chimayos continue to be Summit's favorite go-to for 'on-the-fly' epic Fish and Shrimp Tacos, signature Chile Rellenos, burritos, quesadillas, fajitas, nachos, and more. 

For a little more information... 

Chimayó is a rare, native chile grown in CHIMAYÓ New Mexico (approx. a five-hour drive from Summit County) and has been for over 400 years. 

In a nutshell, a Chimayó pepper is only considered a Chimayó pepper when it’s grown in the dirt in Chimayó, NM. The dirt purportedly holds healing powers.

Many of Chimayo's recipes are prepared and cooked with Chimayó Chile Peppers.
