Recently, the Santa Fe New Mexican newspaper had a review of Sugars BBQ at 1799 NM 68, Embudo, New Mexico. We have passed Sugars many times on our drive to and from Santa Fe to Taos and back and always thought of stopping. Today, we...More

The "Sugar Burger" is among the best chili cheeseburgers in New Mexico. We have had tastier chili cheeseburgers BUT not at this price. The reasonably priced burger at Sugars is just so juicy and tasty that we wish Sugars was closer to home! It is...More

Order and then find a picnic table under the trees. Food is average but the experience makes it a place you will find worth the stop.

Found this gem in 2016 while fishing the Rio Grande River between Taos and Santa Fe. In the super small town of Embudo, you can easily drive by and miss this place but trust me you'll want to turn around and go back. The Sugarburger...More

Had lunch here and ordered couple burgers. They were tasty and reasonable. We sat in the picnic tables provided and it was nice. No inside seating is available. Credit cards are taken.

Enough said❤😊 More than enough to eat. People talk about the onion rings but can't speak from experience

We were in Taos on the hunt for a New Mexico special, green Chile cheeseburger. The recommendation was this place out in the boonies. So worth the trip. The Sugar Burger. Bacon, cheese, green chilies, LTM, mayo, onions. Super good. Bring your own beer.

On the road, there aren't many places to stop and get food. Sugar's is one of those places. Dogs, burgers, BBQ. We had one burger and one BBQ sandwich. Both were good, but not great. However, the experience was fun, eating out on the picnic...More

I’ve eaten here so many times over the years when going back and forth between Taos and Santa Fe, I’ve lost count. I’m usually stuck on the Bbq and curly fries. It’s a perfect combo if your not a tuxedo guy who needs a bib....More

The place looks kind of run down but business is brisk because the food is good. There are several picnic tables available but all of them were occupied when we got there which was ok because we wanted it to go. It was about 5:15...More
