Being a Santa Fe resident, I eat at Santa Fe Bite. Sometimes dining in but others take out. The last two times I have had the green chile cheese burger and ordered it medium well, it has come out medium or less. Yucky. The last...More

Excellent, excellent green chile hamburger. My companion had the turkey sandwich and she stated it was very good.

Four of us stopped by for lunch just before Sunday noon. Got right in, but the place was packed within minutes. Meals for the four of us ran the gamut.... steak, salad, fried chicken and a soup/salad/sandwich combo. Four thumbs up. Was a beautiful cool...More

Don’t miss the green chile cheeseburger, which is the best I’ve had. A thick beef patty covered with smokey chilies and melted cheese served on a buttered brioche bun. It is heavenly! Warm welcoming service in a relaxed atmosphere. Menu has something for everyone at...More

This might be the best place for a green chile cheeseburger. Granted - there are a lot of great burgers in New Mexico, and there's no one aspect of these that stands out - but every part of it is awesome. Yes, they are a...More

$17 plus tip for a burger and sweet potato fries. Expensive. But the burger is cooked as requested and both it and the fries were delicious!

So says my husband. I can vouch for their fried chicken on Sundays - get there early as they sell out! Homemade apple pie is outstanding too. Fast, professional service in an uber-casual environment.

The Famous Green Chile Cheeseburgers are back! John and Bonnie Eckre, formerly of Bobcat Bite, are taking their food to the next level at the new Santa Fe Bite located inside Garrett's Desert Inn on Old Santa Fe Trail. In addition to their savory Green Chile Cheeseburgers, Santa Fe Bite features fresh tacos, fish and chips, sandwiches, a choice of French or sweet potato fries and a little something they like to call 'The Big Bite' that comes with a side of buttery garlic bread. Creamy milkshakes and homemade lemonade are just some of the sweet treats popping up on their new menu. Also, we are now serving beer and wine. Santa Fe Bite opens at 8am Saturday and Sunday which means early birds can sample tasty Breakfast menu offerings like hot cornmeal pancakes with maple syrup, brioche French toast with maple caramel sauce and house-made biscuits with Mom's gravy. Spend a leisurely Sunday outside at Santa Fe Bite. The new Brunch menu includes eggs benedict, Steak & Eggs and Huevos Rancheros.
