Real burger was recommended to us, it has made our list of 'regular places to eat'. Go there hungry, their burgers are large & filling, w/ the added benefit of being able to dress them yourself. The pulled pork is also a must try, this sandwich could feed two, and their fries are as close to home fries as one... More

Pulled into Santa Fe sorta late on my way home from AZ. Looked on my map app for a nearby restaurant and saw Real Burger was not far from my hotel. It was only about 6:30 but there didn't seem to be many people in the place. This turned out to be a real gem of a place if you... More

RealBurger's food trucks offer decent burgers but nothing like the burgers they serve in their restaurant (whose Green Chile Cheeseburgers are the best in the city!). In all fairness, compared with other food truck burgers, they are the way to go.

During our vacation in Santa Fe we wanted to try the much recommended green chile cheeseburgers. A friend suggested Real Burger as a restaurant with the best green chile cheeseburgers in Santa Fe with a very reasonable cost. We found both to be true as the cheeseburgers were delicious and nearly half as expensive as other restaurants in the area.... More

Tucked away on Cerrillos Road,Real Burger offers great burger plates at a fair price. Daily specials are a bargain. Try a green Chile cheeseburger. Family run. Good food.

We Went recently, and the burgers were really good. They were cooked exactly how we wanted them. The ribbon fries are the best. Our food came out fast. Overall good experience. We had gone when it had opened, they are definitely better. Its still a little expensive for burgers though.

Try the evening burger special if they have it. You can't beat it! 9.99 for burger with any toppings (grilled mushrooms, cheese, grilled onions.... Yum!) fresh cut fries or the best rings ever, and a drink. No alcohol served. Great friendly staff. Great menu with great prices on crispy tacos, chicken fried chicken, fish and chips, good selection, and not... More

Not as good as it was in other locations. Burgers not as tasty. Condiments and tomatoes etc not as fine as they have been.

My husband loves this place. I thought it was pretty good. He eats here for lunch frequently. The burgers are grilled fresh. There isn't really any ambiance, just your basic dining room restaurant with some route 66 and old Santa Fe flair. If you are looking for some good comfort food, this is a nice place to go.

Real burger is one of the best little local restaurants in Santa Fe. I always get the real burger with cheese and green chile and ribbon fries. My wife likes the Navajo taco and my son loves the beef brisket sandwich. Just bring your appetite. And the price is right too.
