Left wondering WHY...

Ok, I love burgers. There it is, for all the world to see. So, when I read an article from National Geographic rating the TOP 10 Burger Joints in the COUNTRY, and found that one of them was near where we're staying this week, I was pretty excited! Let me say that the one rated was the Lotaburger... read more

Not sure how this place stays in business. We ordered burgers which are supposed to be top ten in Carlsbad, and they were worse than frozen burgers you can buy at a grocery. Dead flies everywhere. And it took forever to get the food.

Yes the Green Chili's were good, but this is a regular burger that some fast food chains do better. It was a very big let down. You would be better off going to a decent place and order out and put green chili's on it. I don't like eating in dirty places that have missing tiles in the suspension ceiling... More

The family wasn't up to eating in a restaurant after exploring Carlsbad Caverns so it was up to me to find some fast food to take back to our room. I didn't want food from any of the chains we have back home in Texas so when I spotted Blake's Lotaburger I had to try it out. The wait time... More

Basic fast-food burger, decent fries, friendly staff, but they swore they'd put the chilis on the side (it is pretty harsh for a newbie!) and they forgot (after they'd made a big deal about putting them on the side), so I had to go back and ask... but, I guess I went and survived? Probably not going to be a... More

Ate here while traveling through to the Caverns. The people were very friendly and the place was clean. I got a burger with green chili and it was really good. The fries and onion rings were also done well. Saw these all over New Mexico and was glad we stopped at one. Quick, easy, tasty.

Wow! Did not think I could get a burger like this. Flavorful meat, spicy hatch green chile, yum. Great beer batter onion rings. Very reasonable price. Quick service.

Nephew was on a quest to compare burgers, and this was the last chance before leaving the state. He's now a huge fan of Lotaburger combo with green chili. The place was having major soda issues, to that was our only complaint.

It's Saturday night so granted I figured they'd be open a little later. Got there 15 minutes before they closed. No big deal. All of the people who worked there were unprofessional. The cashier who took my order was high off his kite. Trust me I know the signs, I'm a cop I see it all the time. The other... More
