Owl Bar

77 Highway 380, San Antonio, NM - (575) 835-9946

Back in the 1960's I would fly into San Antonino and buzz the cafe to let them know to pick me up at the dike (only place to land in the area). It was worth the effort and cost just to get a really good chile cheeseburger. I am moving back to NM and will make the Owl Bar a regular place to stop again.

Green Chile Cheeseburger
Rate this place
The quality of chile makes all the difference in a green chile cheeseburger. The Owl uses full-flavored, hot green chile atop a hand-formed patty of crusty-fried beef. The chile's heat is complemented by the beef and balanced by the layer of creamy cheese on top. This one is fully dressed with all available condiments -- the only way to go.

The Owl's green chile turns ordinary french fries into a memorable side dish.

The view from my counter seat gives a small hint of the, shall we say, eclectic decor at this extremely colorful roadhouse.
