San Antonio, NM sports a population of 165 people, and two nationally recognized burger joints. Both are on the Green Chile Cheeseburger Trail that runs throughout the state, and both are worth a visit. The 1st burger pictured is from the Buckhorn Tavern. In 2005, GQ magazine named them No. 7 in their top 20 burgers to eat before you die. In 2009, Bobby Flay showed up for a throw down. He lost.
The 2nd burger pictured is from the Owl Cafe, about 50 paces down the road. Both burgers made Sunset Magazine’s top 77 road food spots in the USA.It would be hard to pick a favorite, but in my experience, the Buckhorn wins by a smidgen. Absolutely fantastic, check them both out if you’re in the area. Out of all the burgers I’ve eaten around the world, these two most definitely rate in my top five.
