This is not our first time to eat at 5 Star Burgers and it won't be our last. This is one of the finest burgers I've ever eaten, and as the child of a beef rancher, I know a great burger when I enjoy one. The burger was exactly cooked to order and the service was impeccable. Our server Maria... More

My second time to visit and both times I've been impressed. The selection of burgers is impressive. They cook to your request as far as temperature. Our Server Maria was great, very attentive. Highly recommended.

We almost passed this restaurant by, because it looks like a fast food place--but we're so glad we went! The burgers are not cheap, but are oh, so good! In fact, I just had the best patty melt I've ever eaten. Also, the fried green beans are wonderful!

Five Star is the only place we go when we are hungry for a burger! The buns are freshly made, the beef is grass fed, locally sourced and juicy! The signature burgers are the best! I always go for the Green Chile cheeseburger which has a green chile mayo, chopped green chiles, pepper jack cheese and is so flavorful! My... More

I have eaten at the locations in Albuquerque I knew what to expect on the food side. This place is a little difficult to get to but the food is still as good as their larger locations. If you're wanting a unique burger away from the plaza this is the place to stop.

Had a meal at this restaurant not once but 4 times. This place has the best burgers ever. Made with black Angus beef. All fresh and not frozen. Great burgers, fries and ice cream. We were smitten with our first bite. Staff was exceptional. Eager to please and made sure your experience was top of the line.

It's a burger joint. Better than the franchise places. They specialize in sliders. The pepper/fries were pretty tasty.

Thanks Micheal C. We appreciate you giving us a review. Wouldn't really claim sliders as a specialty, but they are a great value during our Happy Hour from 4-6 daily. Thanks for coming in! More

Ate here spur of the moment, was during happy hour. This place doesn't really know if it's a bar or a cafe I don't think. There is no senior menu and when asked if I could order off the kid's menu, the waitress pointed out the happy hour menu which was cheaper and smaller portions. The burger slider was good;... More

If you are reading this, you HAVE TO go here. I'm serious. The burgers are so good! Our little family was starving and wanted something good. Being burnt out on Hispanic food, we decided on burgers and came here. Service was so friendly and accommodating!! We got to sit where we asked (outside) and the waitress brought a highchair and...
