My family has been coming to this place for years as we travel to and from New Mexico and it's a must stop. It had been a few years, so I read the reviews first- and appreciated the advice to go early. We got there at 11 to have the green chile burger and by the time we left there... More

Given the limited options south of Pueblo, this cafe is a useful stop off the highway. There are local paintings and photographs on the walls.The owner is nice and enjoys talking with everyone. The locals there make the place friendly and cheerful. I had the green chile burger. The sauce tasted good, but the meat was fairly gristly. I asked... More

Small place everyone should go to! I love this place & I go to eat there at least monthly. I love the battered mushrooms and fried cauliflower. The best hamburger with cheese and chili strips ever. Great desserts, too. Also shakes and malts. It is a must to eat here. Be prepared to wait for a table, but not for... More

Walsenburg's best place for years! Breakfast and lunch only. Freak American food. All the food is fantastic at this cafe. I've been going there for over 30 years. Absolutely the best hamburgers on Earth! Phenomenal breakfasts. Often, there's a wait, but well worth it. The staff is incredibly fast and super-friendly,

Great burgers (and grilled chicken burger) with green chile strips, real fries. Nice local place, friendly folks, super clean bathrooms. Bodacious pumpkin pie.

Have eaten here several times and have always been pleased with the consistency of the service, the taste of the food and its presentation. Located on the west side of I-25 exit 52 will get you there. This is a family owned and run establishment and the food speaks for itself. Seating at times is quite limited because it is... More

George's makes an excellent, spicy, breakfast burrito, or a great green chili burger. Fries are fresh cut.

This little diner makes the best green chili burgers ever. Get the burger with their hand cut french fries for a satisfying and delicious lunch. They are also open for breakfast, but I never can seem to get up early enough. A waitress takes your order and delivers it in short time. This is a very busy and small place.... More

We suggest you try to beat the lunch crowd as it is very crowded by the locals and others passing thru the area as it is next to the interstate. The owner is very nice and takes your order while you wait for a place to sit. Once you are seated they bring your order right away. that is a... More
