Lives up to it's name

What a great place to grab a burger and a beer. The Green chile cheeseburger is just to die for. Cooked just the way I asked and so juicy. The Santa Fe Brown Nut beer was so delicious. You really must go!

This was my first visit to this chain. We do not have this place where I am from. Suppose it is a southwest chain. However it has some awesome food. I had the green chile cheeseburger with green chile mayo sauce. It was very good. Just enough splce but not to hot. It was awesome. Be prepared they are large.... More

This is a burger joint but still has a nice patio and atmosphere. The food (including salads) is really outstanding.

I enjoyed the buffalo burger and the wonderful fries at this little place. The meat was juicy and had great flavor. The fries were hot and crispy. What else could you ask for?

The food is fresh and very tasty after a day in the mountains or on the river. You can tell it is made-to-order. The place is small and comfy, the kind of place where you can linger over your meal and order another drink, Would have given 5 stars, but our waitress brought our ticket before we were half done...

The New Mexico beers on tap are fine also. An excellent veggie burger and homemade chips were good for wife. My bison burger was perfectly cooked, moist and juicy at medium. A la carte sides were just fine, too. The restaurant had a booming carry-out business.

The burgers were good but for ten bucks i would have expected them to come with fries!! They were tasty as were the sides, though to be honest i would not order them outside of happy hour, a bit too expensive
