I have been coming here almost every trip to Albuquerque from Las Cruces for most of my life, which is a long time. Always great green chile burgers with a nice slice of onion and tomato. Now top that off with a rum and coke and you are all set!

You likely already know about the Green Chile Cheeseburgers if you are reading this. Simply put, each time I eat one, I say "yep, that's the best burger I've ever eaten". Making them the same way since 1948. But do you know about the Beans and Chile? I've noticed many times that while travelers generally opt for the burgers (for... More

The Owl Bar & Café was our planned lunch stop between Albuquerque and Alamogordo. They have a few dishes listed on the menu; our group of six adults didn't get past the Green Chile Cheeseburger. It's what the place is famous for, and who were we to disagree. My plan, on this road trip, was to sample this dish in... More

Did The Owl on the way back from a road trip (did Buckhorn on the way out) and I'm afraid I was very disappointed. Guys in the car park told us the place had been going for 70 years and was way better than Buckhorn, so I thought I was in for a real treat. The only thing better is... More

Chile Cheeseburger in a biker bar environment. Minus the bikers. Plus the friendly staff. Best Chile Cheeseburger we ever ate, and we’ve eaten too many. Worth a detour. Note their days and hours.

We stopped here on a cross country bicycle tour. Good company (Don) and fast service. I went with the green chili cheeseburger and cheese fries. Yum!
