The best hamburger around. My favorite are Green chili cheese burgers and fries. Always consistent, always tasty. A little spendy but worth it. Highly recommended

I've gone to the store at 3207 Richmond NE for a few years, but after todays (06/04/08) experience I will not be returning. The meat I was served was - to put it nicely - the worst thing I have ever eaten in my entire life.

I would have Taken it back and demanded a refund had I not been several miles away by the time I got to the middle of the burger, I've already been sick once and I'm not feeling any better.

I will never again be returning to Blakes and will not be suggesting it to anyone I know.

Cons: Not anymore.

I went to the one in Alamogordo NM and the cashier was so rude to me that i will never return there again! I had told her that I needed to place 2 orders, she took the first order and then walk away. I waited for her to return to make the other order and when i made the order she was pounding on the register hard like she was angry then the manager told her that she would finish my order because she was angry. i thought every thing was fine until the cashier started saying "what the hell is wrong with her?" and "that stupid white B***H she makes me so mad! I can't believe that she would stand there and and not say any thing about another order. what do i look like a slave? she makes me so mad!" and the manager said or did any thing! I have never been treated like that in my life! I will never return to Blake's Lotaburger!

I was a student back in the mid-eighties and later lived in the NE heights for 2 years before moving away.Countless times I dined at the Blake's on Coors NW (which is now gone-sniff, sniff) and after acclimating my tastebuds to green chiles (being from Michigan), I grew to love the classic Lotaburger w/ green chili & cheese. Last January, I returned just to visit . I drove my rental car up Central and as I pulled into the Lotaburger, I began to giggle foolishly almost like a schoolgirl anticipating my reunion with an old flame. So here I was, once again in the city I once called home with the BEST burger ever made. Over the next 3 days, I ate at various Blakes locations twice a day and left with a long-time itch finally scratched, There are other Johnny-come-latelys in the green chili burger category both in NM and elsewhere but having sampled a wide variety, I can truly say that nothing quite measures up to Blakes.

Pros: Food, Service, Value Under Comments if you're a foodie, maybe it can be romantic

Cons: none really

Blake's is a legend. I'd give just about anything right now for a green chile cheeseburger and a vanilla Diet Coke, along with a side of fries. Blake's is definitely at the top of my list of things I miss about New Mexico!

It has been 18 years since I lived in Albuquerque, and I miss many things about it but the green chili cheeseburgers have to be at or near the top of the list! IF you are traveling on Interstate 40 through NM you MUST stop and have one of these. I"m outta here! Peace! :)

The best way to have a Lotaburger is to order it this way.
Lotaburger
with double meat
double cheese
green chile
french fries
coke
They are made fresh when you order, not before. Best hamburger I've ever tasted in the USA

I have lived in Albuquerque for almost 20 years and i must say Blake's is one of my favorite places to eat. The decorating is not much to look at in any of their restaurants, but no matter what you get there it will not only taste delicious, but it will be exactly what you ordered!

Ask any (non-vegan) New Mexican expatriate what he/she misses most about the state and somewhere in the list, you'll undoubtedly find a Blakes Green Chile Cheeseburger.

It's usally the first place I visit for lunch whenever I return.. Having moved the California, In N Out burgers are a fair substitute, but NOTHING in the world compares to a Green Chile Cheeseburger and Chocolate Coke.

Anyone be willing to FedEx me one sometime? :o)

These are the worst hamburgers that I know of anywhere. They always over cook the patties to the point of being no better than a thin, tough and nearly charred piece of shoe leather with a beef flavoring. They compensate for the lack of adequate meat by usinghuge buns and and piling on the lettuce with some tomato, pickles and onions. To make matters worse the staffs at each location can rarely get an order correct the first time.

Cons: over cooked meat, small patties, poor service

.

Although ambience is not its strong suit, this local burger chain sells a delicious product. The Itsa Burger is my favorite, a medium sized burger which can be accented with green chile or cheese. The fries are real, not extruded and the service is quick. Best in Burque!!

Blake's Lotaburger are truely the best!

I was visiting Farmington, NM this Thanksgiving ('02) and stopped at this roadside burger place because of the noticeablely large crowd of customers.

I discovered what seems to be another New Mexico best-kept-secret: Customer service was polite, patient and friendly. The burgers here are simply the best.

After enjoying the 'Lotaburger Special' I really felt I had a worthwhile and tasty meal.

We in Southern California need this burger chain. I'm sure it would give In-N-Out a run for its money.

When in New Mexico make sure you don't forget to stop in at a Blake's Lotaburger.

Ive been eating lotaburgers for the past 40 years
and my stomach has not complained once.
double meat ,cheese, and greenchili. can't beat it.
I lived in lasvegas nv. for the past 14 years.
[I previously lived in N.Mex for36 years.]
But every time I return to NewMexico {Grants]
the fist place I stop at is Blakes Lota Burger.
Or when a family member goes to or returns from N.Mex. They will bring back a Lota burger.

While Blakes has a good burger, I strong disagree that they have the best in town. And also not on the list is REX'S HAMBURGERS, which is by far the best place for hamburgers in town.

I have been eatting at these LottaBurger places since I was a child, now that I live in North East Texas I have to drive 12 hours to get one of these great burgers. I would love to see this chain of restaurants move into Texas. Top of the line burger chain.

Pros: food, service, cost

Always consistent with a good honest
burger, of course I always add green
chile. They have changed their chile
supplier the last year or so and it shows.
The chile has a good flavor without
being very hot; before you could barely
taste it.
Look and see, the cooks have hairnets and
honestly try to keep your food clean. That is
better than some of the other fast food places.

The Green Chili Lotaburger is the absolute best ever, fresh made to order, it is huge and hard to finish in one sitting. The ambiance is a throwback to the 60's The onion rings are pretty good too

Every summer my kids and travel to New Mexico to visit family in Albuquerque. We must always make a trip to Lotaburger to eat a tasty Angus Beef with Green Chile Burger. The best in the world! We sometimes eat there for lunch 2 or 3 times throughout our short visit. We live in Houston and cannot find any resturant to compare to Lotaburger.

I have friends and relation from out of state that hit Lotaburger before any other stop in the Land Of Enchantment.
The meat inspector for the state tells me that Blake's processing facilities are the cleanest and best run in the state and the beef used is the very highest quality. I think this comes through in the taste of the Lotaburger. So wether you have your Lotaburger with green chili (chile,N.M.spelling) or not, give Blake's a try.
