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.
Food, as every bride knows, is the way to a guest's heart, making the crowd feel warm and welcome. One way to guarantee that your guests have a four-star experience is to book your celebration at El Pinto Restaurant whose cuisine you know and love. A restaurant wedding or reception at El Pinto is also an easy choice for couples who want the full wedding experience, but who don't want to sweat the details, since everything—from chairs to chafing dishes is already in place. Here, the logistics of having a wedding in a beautiful outdoor setting and where the fare is fabulous will let you focus on your wedding day - not the details.
