It is NOT "one of the best meals I've had in a restaurant", but that's because it's a burger joint, on the highway.

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.

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.

We went during happy hour, not as busy as we expected. $2 slider cheeseburgers were good, bun chewy, real meat, solid. Fish and Chips is to be avoided. Both frozen/processed. Surprised with the frozen fries. A burger joint should have real fresh fries. The Santa Fe location staff were better at suggesting and offering different dipping sauces.

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
