El Pinto Restaurant

100% love it
Serving up abuela's traditional New Mexico recipes
Since 1962, El Pinto has hung its reputation on grandmother Josephine Chavez-Griggs' green and red Chile recipes that embody the hot and spicy flavors that New Mexico is famous for. With a gorgeous and lively atmosphere, this is the ideal spot if you are in the mood for sunshine, authentic food and incredible service!

      Great food and ambiance
      El Pinto is located in ABQ's North Valley near Sandia Pueblo (and not far from their casino/hotel). It serves typical New Mexican food, based on green and red chile. The setting is wonderful, it's like you're in a big estate, and if the weather is nice, definitely sit outside under the large old cottonwoods - the prices are reasonable and the food is very good and the location is wonderful - a little drive into the country. They also sell world-famous salsa made fresh on the premises.
