Upscale hamburger

Good burger joint if you want upscale hamburgers. A hamburger to me is fast food, when you start adding all the garnishments it changes what you are eating. Go try it out and make your own decision.

5 Star Burgers creates a whole new, respectable level of fast food dining. It moves beyond the cliche of burgers to deliver wonderfully sourced and prepared food that won't break the bank. Attentive wait staff, cool vibe, local craft beers and great side dishes make the burger experience worth the trip

We happened by 5 Star Burgers while passing through Taos, NM and were hungry enough to try an unknown entity. Always wary of off-and-on brand burger joints since so many are just plain BAD. This one was a welcome exception. A bit pricey for burgers, but the 1/2 pound burgers and fries (both regular and sweet potato) were excellent -... More

These burgers are 1/2 pounders and grilled! Lots of different variations and creations....love the unusual. There was even a bison burger that was tried by on one of the grandsons. He ate it all! Sweet potatoes and regular potato fries . Very clean....very modern decor...outside patio...great service ....we wanted to go back but ran out of time!

Hi Doodie T., Thanks for such a nice review. Glad to hear that your grandson was brave enough to try a bison burger - you won't see that on every menu! We really appreciate your business. More

You know it's a Burger joint, but if you get good service, well cooked food, (Grilled Cheese Sandwich & Angus Hamburger Steak) a nice local brew and decent coffee what's not to like. Enjoyed our visit.

Poor rude service but great burgers if you can wait long enough. There are other great burger places in Taos just go to KTAOS

Hi Robert G., Well, we're glad you enjoyed the burgers BUT....they should definitely not be served with poor rude service. We really appreciate you taking the time to let us know so that we can let our staff know that this is unacceptable. More

Great burgers and great service. Our waitress suggested we split a regular burger in half for our 2 kids to share. Apparently, the kids meal burgers are very small. Sharing the burger was the perfect size for them. Lots of locals and some tourists.
