It was breakfast time - but I still had to have a green chile burger. And, it was as good as I remember them being forever. We chose to eat in and the place was spotless. The people taking the orders were busy with a...More

Key word WAS. I grew up living on the Lota burger and the Itsa burger with green chili, the fries were the best! Not any more, new owners have sealed the burger in a wrapper that seals in the steam and makes it grossly soggy...More

A great little burger joint in the middle of nowhere. Came here on the suggestion to get a giant burger packed with the green chili, and I was not disappointed. It had a great taste to it, an excellent kick of flavor yet still wasn't...More

This was the worst excuse for a restaurant I have ever seen. Dirty. Thugs behind the counter, not a clean table anywhere and NO customers anywhere. We just walked out.

I came here for a quick dinner while in Albuquerque for work-related travel. I'd driven by it a few times, and honestly, I hadn't realized it was still in business--it's a real no frills-no thrills kind of place that never seems to have a crowd....More

Hubby's frequent choice in the Las Cruces area is Blake's because the green chile is always hot, sometimes very hot. Not the same at this location in ABQ. Burger was overcooked and the green chile was not very flavorful and not hot at all. And,...More

Blake's Lotaburgers are all over Albuquerque and you must stop by at least once for a green chili lotaburger. It started over 40 years ago with one drive-in in Santa Fe and was simply called Lotaburger and were the most delicious burgers anywhere, with fresh...More

It's been years since I've been in NM, and Blakes on San Mateo was my first stop for a meal once I landed in ABQ. At first, my daughter was skeptical, but after eating her first ITSABURGER, she was hooked! Thanks for such a great...More

I have been eating Blake's Lotaburgers for many years (not that many burgers per year, but 4-6 a year for 50 years is still a lot!). I like them. This review is for almost any Lotaburger restaurant. This fast food chain is throughout New Mexico,...More
