This is an old fashioned Burger place with curb service or covered dining. Best burgers around with interesting toppings. The Mayton is a burger on Texas toast with bacon, cheese, mayo, lettuce, and tomato. We added mushrooms from the long list of possible extras. The fries are like small steak fries and delicious but you have to add your own... More

Forget about Sonic. Pull into a spot, turn your lights on, and someone will be right there to take your order. The tiger burger is the best burger in Alamogordo.

When ordering I asked for a burger with only cheese and mayo and another burger with green chili and cheese and a few other items. The waitress (who was extremely rude) wasn't paying attention. When our food was delivered the Luigi burger was labeled as the mayo. It was all quite confusing but none of the burgers were what we... More

I ate here after work one afternoon and I was amazed how delicious it was. Service was a little slow because there was only one waitress working to serve the entire place (and there were a lot of people there) but we got our food while it was hot so I'm not going to complain. I had the tiger burger... More

Recommended by our hotel and what a fabulous suggestion. We had their burger on Texas toast with onion rings. Absolutely worth the wait, which wasn't long. Sat outside (they have a tiny space inside), enjoyed the company and the old school atmosphere. RECOMMENDED!!

Looked forward to stopping here on our way through Alamogordo but was underwhelmed once we arrived. It does have a big outdoor pet-friendly dining area but the disorganization from the staff was remarkable. It was around 1 PM on Friday and parking was still fairly full (a good sign) but getting service took so long, we almost left - I... More

Great burgers! My favorite is served on Texas toast. It is old fashion drive in style. Lunch and dinner they have something you will enjoy.

Super basic burger joint. They have a sign posted that says they don't serve fast food. That is accurate-- we waited approximately 35 minutes for burgers and fries on Sunday night. That being said, I would prefer to wait the 35 minutes for the burger they served me than to eat a fast food burger. It was a tasty burger.... More

We got a burger and the chicken finger basket, with a lemon drink and vanilla milkshake. Food was just what we wanted and needed after a long day hiking and exploring around New Mexico. Solid greasy food, way more charming than a chain like McDonalds. Waitress came out to us as we sat in the car to eat. Also option... More
