Half of the summer is over, so lets make the most of what remains! The Patios opened Saturday May 30th! Indoor dining resumed June 1st. Although El Pinto is at 50% capacity and we have removed tables throughout our 8 beautiful patios and from our five indoor dining rooms. Our 1,200 seat capacity is down to 500, but as the largest restaurant in the Southwest, there is still a seat for you. There is free music while you dine on Sandia Patio Tuesday and Thursday nights. Patios are covered for the occasional monsoon storm and protection from the afternoon sunshine. Reservations are highly recommended, and most likely required for seating in the evening, so we can properly manage the flow of guests. We will be utilizing our outdoor park and new open air covered Pavilion after check-in until your table is cleaned according to COVID standards. You will enjoy the relaxed outdoor atmosphere while you wait under the Cottonwoods, with the additional benefit of drink service.
