Owl Bar

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

The Owl Cafe is a must-stop place. Great green chile cheeseburgers. The "decor" is a hoot, pun intended. The GCC at Buckhorn Tavern, virtually across the street, is nearly as good but the chile concoction at Owl is better tasting to me. A fun place.

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.
