Chile is the defining ingredient of this regional cuisine. Red and green chile is native to New Mexico, and is harvested each fall at different times of ripeness. Green chile, which is picked earlier than red, is considered a super food by some, containing more vitamin c than citrus fruit, and creating a "high" similar to the endorphins produced when exercising. We use Bueno chile in all our dishes, which has been owned and operated by the Baca family since 1951.
Green Chile Kitchen Route 66 was opened in 2012 by the Peters and Logan families. It is the sister restaurant of Green Chile Kitchen, in San Francisco, CA, which was opened in 2006.
Green Chile Kitchen Route 66 serves New Mexican inspired food focusing on the distinctive flavors and traditions of this unique region. We are dedicated to creating delicious and affordable dishes that are made from scratch.
