Pulled our RV to the side of the restaurant. The green chili burger was awesome! Ordered fries, but honestly could have done without them. Fries were rather limp, burger was awesome. Nothing fancy, paper plates, solo cups.

Buckhorn burger was one of the best green chili cheese burgers I have ever had. The french fries basket served the 4 of us. The fries appear to be home cut, this style are commonly soggy and not good, Not the case here. These are...More

There is always controversy about Owl vs Buckhorn. For me - it is the Owl, hands down. I guess because I have gone there forever. And - they don't serve beans at Buckhorn. That said, Buckhorn is very good. They use just plain green chile...More
