This was our first trip to Taos. We had both wanted to visit for many years. I read TA reviews on the way into town and decided to give 5 Star Burgers a try. I had heard of New Mexico's green chile burgers and 5 Star offers a version ($10). I ordered that and Hubby wanted the 5 Star Burger... More

I overheard some people discussing Five Star Burgers while at a B & B near Taos. After a long day hiking Wheeler Peak, a burger and a brew sounded good, so I went and checked it out. I came in during their final hour before closing and there was some miscommunication that led to some slow service, at least at... More

Bison, beef, tuna, or vegetarian. Potato or sweet potato fries that are thin-sliced, a little bit crispy, but mostly, filling. Asian salad is very tasty. Save room for a single scoop of ice cream. Called a "shooter" they are only $1. Patio or inside, it's just great!! Quick service, consistently great food for the money. Lots of parking, easy in... More

Loved the huge homemade burgers! Also tried fried strips of chili, and a breaded chili on the burger. Delicious! Great homemade lemonade, onion rings.

Arrived mid afternoon for business, didn't want to drive downtown. Stopped here for late lunch/early dinner and we were pleased with the burgers, beer and service. Fries and fried green chiles not so much. Green chile cheeseburger was excellent as was the green chile buffalo burger. Loved the bun and the green chile mayo. Fries were typical frozen tasting and... More

Great, great, organic beef bugers, and other foods. The fries are very good, but they do offer other sides. They serve wine and beer, and do have a very good Sangria. Our chocolate lava cake was wonderful. Good place to eat!

We love Five Star Burgers. The name is an apt description. The variety of burgers and toppings are great and everything is fresh and delicious. The bison burger is off the chart as well as the gorgonzola. If you would rather be conservative, the classic is top notch. Not too pricey, especially for the quality food you get. Five Star... More

Have eaten here a couple of times this month and have found no flaws in this operation. OK...I always order the green chile cheeseburger, because I'm an addict. I can barely finish that because it is so large, but I always order a side of fries, sweet potato fries or onion rings because they are so delicious. The waitstaff is... More

We'd never been to one of these so we thought we'd check it out. Didn't realize we were there at Happy Hour. Several dishes were on Sale during this time, so we picked 3 items and gave it a shot. The food was quite good for fast food, the price was right. The service was really good for a burger... More
