I regularly pass through San Antonio on my way from my home in Albuquerque to my mountain house in Cloudcroft...in fact I am always hopeful that I have time to stop at the Owl for New Mexico's signature green chile cheeseburger. The Owl is what roadfood is about, fast and delicious. You have a choice in San Antonio and it is the Owl.
"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."
"Just a couple of minutes off I-25 south of Socorro, the Owl Bar is a must-stop location for any traveler in search of unique regional specialties."
