With The Buckhorn almost right across the street, you'll be tempted to hit The Owl, but don't. The seating is jammed, the seats are uncomfortable, and the food is downright middle of the road. Now I'm not saying there's anything wrong with the food, but as I did say, just because a place is big, just means that it's big,... More

On the first day of a 30 day road trip we stopped here. I must say it is one of the best burgers I've ever eaten. Juicy, big, great bun. So if you're driving to Santa Fe from the south, make this a stop....

After loving the Owl Cafe in Albuquerque, everyone said we had to go to the original venue for the best green chile burger anywhere. While we enjoyed the experience, I'm not sure it was better than the ABQ experience, but it was still pretty tasty. The restaurant is very dark and my kids were a little freaked out by it.... More

My family and I just found this place. The decor is has owls of course but also patches. I ordered the burger with fries. The patties just flopped out if the bun. It was hand pressed and I got some of the green chile my aunt ordered to put on. Flavorful and tangy was what my mouth felt. The burger... More

If you like a great burger with green chili, then this is the place! The onion rings were ok, but the burger was out of this world.
