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.

We had read about this place and decided to give it a try when passing through San Antonio. I had the green chili cheeseburger, and it was excellent. My wife had the green chili chicken sandwich and liked it as well. People should be aware this is a small town diner and bar. Those needed pretension probably will not like... More

One of the consequences of a service like Tripadvisor is the possibility of over-hype. I'm sad to say this was one of them for my family. Trinity Site, the location of the first atomic bomb explosion, is opened to the public for visiting on the first Saturday of October and April. The entrance to the site is down the road... More
