This was the first stop on my quest for the best green chile cheeseburger. Since I was in old town Santa Fe, Bert's was the closest. It was as described in the Roadfood.com review, a stand by the side of the road with no inside seating. It was also a beautiful day to sit outside.
I ordered a GCCB in the 1/2 pound size, rings and a soda. One problem: they forgot the chiles. I took it back inside and they fixed it. It was a great burger, crusty and smoky on the outside, juicy on the inside. They could have used a more substantial bun; this one was falling apart, but that is a quibble. The rings were Sysco frozen, not bad, but nothing to write home about.
"This is the double-wide burger made from a half-pound of beef. Chile and cheese are on top. Standard hamburger condiments are underneath."
"With a crunchy exterior, these onion rings make an excellent accompaniment to a green chile cheeseburger."
"Hamburgers are assembled and buns warmed on Bert’s griddle. To the right is the grate where they cook in a veil of smoke."
"Home of the green chile cheeseburger since 1954. It's hugely popular among visitors in the summer time. Year around, locals make it a hang-out for catching up on news and shmoozing and quick-eating."
