All they says is true, The Best

This is one place that has so many good reviews that you kind of doubt it. Well, they all are right. The best burger in Taos. The barbecue sauce, the fried green chile, the sangria and last but not least, the perfect cooked Angus beef. Great!

Good variety of burgers, fries, and salad things. Little pricey for just a burger. Fries extra and small order is more then generous for 2 adults. Had good draft beer from Alien brewery in New Mexico. Try to sit away from bar area with the TV's. Too noisy at times.

Wide selection of gourmet hamburgers with a nice selection of beer. I had the green chili cheeseburger plus we had fries and onion rings. A big plus is the nice assortment of dipping sauces. But still another spot in the big divide west of Texas and east of LA where too often "medium rare" comes out "medium". And the sandwiches... More

An excellent burger with a southwest flair. You can taste the freshness of the beef. Don't be afraid to stop by and try this place.

Hi rabbitfarmer, Thanks for giving us a review. Glad you found the taste of the burger "fresh". That's why we grind our hormone and antiobiotic-free angus beef fresh everyday. Thank you for giving us a try! More

Great food! Fried green chilies are a MUST! Would also recommend the fried pickles. Hamburgers are wonderful! Flavored mayo is to die for!

We stopped here for lunch while traveling to Santa Fe from Taos. They had great service for the most part (I had to ask for soda refills). I had the grilled salmon sandwich and my wife had the lamb burger. We shared an order of fries. My salmon was great, the lamb burger was good (although my wife had an... More

Great burgers and local beers on tap. Excellent burger selection. Place is always a little untidy. They need to spend a bit more time keeping the floors swept.

We had some really great food. Our waitress was ok but her support people were better. The girl that brought the beer was friendly the guy that brought our food was engaging. The waitress seemed her mind was elsewhere... Very preoccupied. We tipped her 10 bucks on a 35$ tab and she seemed just to busy to say thanks..

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!
