buffalo burger

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

If you are looking for a plain 'ole burger then this is the place. It's nothing special or fancy. I got a to go order and it was ice cold. The fry cart is good along with the sweet potato fry dipping sauce.

If you want a very pricey burger, this is the place for you! Granted, the beef patty is hand-formed Angus, hormone and anti-biotic free (not that I can tell the difference anyway). And the brioche bun was tasty. But for $11+ (the Old-Timer burger plus bacon) I expect plenty of fresh veggies to pile on - and I got three... More

Other than that, this is, indeed, one of the very best burger joints in New Mexico. Can't say I've tried more than my 200 pound fat frame says, but I would say out of every place in NM that serves burgers- and claims they are "the best", 5 Star is tops. Some places here, in Santa Fe or Silver City,... More

Second time here. The food changes, fries and Mac and cheese were different than the first time. It's ok nothing to jump up and down about.

I love burgers and these guys seem to be serving steamed meatloaf on a bun. It was okay but certainly not the kind of burger you'ld expect for the price. Also the place was very unclean and the staff was a mess.
