Cuisines: Hamburgers
Description: Lumpy's has been open only a few months. They seem to have found a winning concept. Grab a paper bag and a crayon and check off exactly how you want your burger, fries and drink. The hamburgers come in three sizes. There is no extra charge for any topping including ranch dressing, green chiles, or cheddar cheese. You select your own sweet or Idaho potato and indicate how you want it cut. There are free drink refills. The staff is very excited about their new business and is very friendly and eager to please. Great food! Take it home or eat at an outdoor table under a canopy.

“Fries and Peach Strawberry Tea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

My sister took me to Lumpy's when I was visiting her in ABQ. I'm a pretty big burger snob, so as far as burgers go I figure it was kind of average. But I would go back in a heartbeat for the fries and the Peach Strawberry Tea. The fries are done in regular or sweet potato, but are very good, and in spiral (chip) or shoestring. Normally I don't like shoestring because they get too crispy too fast, but these were nice and soggy, with just the right amount of crisp. It's definitely good for a late snack or a french fry lunch.

“BEST BURGER PLACE!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

If you're in town, you HAVE to try this place! It was great! My brother lives in ABQ and he suggested it and I'm really glad he did. When you walk in, you go to this table where you write down on a paper bag everything you want on your burger and what type of fries you want. Then you pick out the potato that you want them to make your fries! So unique! The burger was amazing and fries were to die for!!! It's too bad I live in Nebraska otherwise my husband and I would hit up this burger place ALL the time! loved it!!

“My absolute favorite hamburger place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Incredibly good burgers, hand cut fries made from the potato you select, friendly service, crayons...what else is there? Oh yeah, Burque sauce for the burger. Creamy, sparky yummy with fries too. Like your fries with milkshake (I don't but some do), get the free shudder shot with your fries.

I eat here frequently as it is close to home and it never disappoints. Try it! 2 locations on the west side!

“Great place to get a burger in Albuquerque!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

very unique way to order, you mark a lunch paper bag with what you want on your burger, you also hand select the spud that turns into your order of fries. if you like cheese, you have made it to the right place. very tasty burger. the front counter person asked how my meal was when I returned for a refill on my drink, nice touch. outdoor dining or in your car.
