Crispy Green Chile – BBQ Sauce – Cheddar

Taos Burger - Crispy Green Chile – BBQ Sauce – Cheddar. Enough said. I get this same burger every time I go there, without fail. They have a few local(it) beers on tap, which helps the burger go down. Never a bad choice.

From the outside you would think this is a fast food place, but it is a sit down. Hamburgers were cooked to order and very good. I had gouda and barb que. It was very messy and juicy so it was wonderful. Did not expect to come to Taos and eat only hamburgers, but they are great.

We were eager to try Five Star Burgers as we had heard about the excellent food. We stopped on a Saturday afternoon when the place was not busy. We enjoyed a Blue Cheese Burger that was satisfactory, but did not live up to the hype. However, it was the condition of the restuarant that put us off. The tables were... More

Just the burger you need after a long day of skiing. Order any burger, you can't go wrong. Salads are good, too. Good location for kids.

Burgers for dinner are usually a last resort meal for my family and I. THESE burgers are not your usual burgers! I had the '5-star burger'and it was fantastic!! It comes with gorgonzola cheese, bacon, and I added green chile mayo. Not only was it cooked to perfection, but the different flavors went so well together that I ate the... More

We drive by a couple of times and saw the place was packed, so we vowed to try this place late one afternoon. The Taos Burger was really good, with a flattened, breaded pepper on top of the patty, providing just a hint of heat. We also had a blue cheese burger that was properly good. You can get regular...

I ordered a veggie burger and although it was very tasty the patty was falling apart... same with my friend's burger. Maybe we were not accustomed to it. Waitress seemed rushed and not very attentive but they might not have been staffed appropriately
