Stopped in on the way to Bosque del Apache. Top notch green chile cheeseburger. Rustic atmosphere. I'm a big fan of The Owl across the street but decided to try the Buckhorn. Wasn't disappointed. Friendly service.

Intended to go to Owl Cafe. Wish we would have, but saw reviews saying this place beat Bobby Flay. All I can say is that Bobby must have had a very bad day. Burger and fries on the verge of nasty.

Nice local spot to eat - nothing fancy. Freshly prepared - ask for crispy fries. Nice selection of beer.

Attentive service and great food. Served fast and the meal was cooked to order, filling, and worth every penny. One of the better "cheap eats" place I have been to in my travels.
