Happy hour is from 4 to 6 during the week. They have specials on sliders and draft New Mexico craft beers. The sliders are larger than White Castle and are filling. The wait staff are friendly and well informed about the Taos area.

We decided to eat here because they serve hormone/antibiotic free beef. I call it meat from “happy” cows. The burgers were large and served with lettuce/tomato/onion/pickles on the side. We got the Old Timers burger, the burger with crispy green chilies, and the burger with bacon. We enjoyed them all, but I highly recommend the burger with crispy green chilies as the best of the three. The burgers do not come with any sides. You must order them as extras, but they have a good selection of different sides. We ordered onion rings (ours were bland) and fried green beans (tasty). There was a green chile mayo for dipping. It was wonderful. Nothing was greasy. Nothing was too spicy.

THICK, juicy burgers, cooked the way you like. My medium rare was exactly that. Perfect! It made for a messy meal, but we enjoyed our burgers. We ordered the GBB (gouda, bacon, barbecue burger) and the green chile burger. Both came with a side of yummy chipotle mayo, tomatoes, pickles, onion, and lettuce. The green chile was lightly breaded and fried - and it had some heat! Fries, onion rings, fried pickles are extra. Burgers aren't the only thing on the menu - there are salads and other entrees. You'll find something for everyone here. Beer/wine menu is offered, and they have a happy hour between 4-6 PM.

My husband and I had Green chili cheese burger and 5 star burger. We really liked them, but we had to order fries separately because burgers come as a single item. It was a little bit pricey for a burger place.

Hi mg152015,
Glad you enjoyed the burgers. We understand. Not everyone likes ordering fries ala carte, but then again not everyone wants fries. But we do appreciate you giving us your opinion. Thanks!

The food is good, I liked the green chili cheese burger. But, everything is ala carte, You have to order fries or onion rings or anything else separately. And the prices are steep considering you have to order a side of french fries or whatever. A friend and I started splitting a burger and ordered fries to help keep the expense down, which works.

Hi Anita H.,
Thanks for the review. Glad you liked the green chile cheeseburger. Sorry if you feel we are too expensive, but we try to deliver the best product available and it's simply going to cost a little more. But thanks for your feedback.
