I had the BEST burger of my life last week. It was by far the most unusual one I have ever had also. I ate it here in Taos.

Mary Janes is on the left side of the road heading North toward the Plaza on the main drag.

It is "Mexican Burger" on the menu. That is an ordinary factory burger fried till it is very crispy. Then it wrapped in flour tortillas. The entire thing is smothered in green or red chile sauce(green is my favorite) then cheese, tomato, onion, lettuce, and more chili. I was blown away by how intense an eating experience it was. This burger was a 18 on a scale of 1 to 10.

The place in Espanola on the left, heading North just before you turn toward Ojo Caliente is awesome also...

Mr and Mrs S,
We're heading on a very similar trip (but from Dallas) in about a month, and haven't decided on a route yet, but would like to end up in northern NM instead of southern. It would be great if you could post what you find!
Safe Travels!

We did top to bottom on the west side... lots of photos
Get to the Cliff Dwellers early, or plan to camp there, and hike in the morning.

Yes, there are alot of NM green chili burger places in NM, no doubt, but only one Bobcat Bite-

Best Burger Santa Fe green chile cheeseburger

The rest are just blase', maybe good but not the best,......IMHO. My wife was born and raised in Santa Fe and I have been to almost all of the "supposed" best green chili burger places and the 2 San Antonio places are pretty good, but nothing touches the Bobcat Bite.

I believe Bobcat Bite is on the Old Las Vegas Trail. This road parallels I-25 south east of Santa Fe. It always looks busy, though we've never stopped there.

Wow thanks everyone for all the sites in New Mexico. I had no idea that New Mexico had so much to offer. I been googling all these recommendations and we are amazed.
Our plan is to end up in Durango, CO and ride the Silverton Railroad Train.(We were told its really nice in September)
We have 3 weeks open to traveling and we plan to spend at least 5 days in Durango, so that leaves lots of travel time to explore and see the sites.
We still have some mores studying to do before we decide which way we want to go and what we want to stop and see.
Thanks everyone for the post and suggestions I really appreciate it.

If you make it to Silverton, check out the Old Hundred Gold Mine Tour:

Old Hundred Gold Mine Tour

There are a couple of old miners that own it and run the place. Ride in old mining cars deep into the mountain and watch them demo the drilling equipment. Really loud; don't know how miners did it. Lots of old mining stories, too. Ask them to tell you the one about the exploding toilet that made into the newspaper. Gold and silver panning after the ride is touristy, but the kids will enjoy it.

The dirt road is graded and OK for Airstreams. We towed our Bambi up there; it's only a few miles northeast of Silverton. Also, the parking lot is big and easy to turn around.

If you are anywhere near I25 between Las Cruces and T or C NM you have to stop in Hatch NM where they grow all the best green chiles everyone is using on there burgers and get yourself a bag of roasted green chile.Don't forget to stop by Sparky's restuarant there in Hatch as well,some of the best food around and they have a pretty good green chile cheeseburger as well.

I love "the best" title. It is used by so many. Come to Baltimore where we have "the best" crab cakes, "The Best" pit beef, "the best" this and that. So many "the bests" out there. "the best" is where you find it and it is "the best" if you find it yourself.

"the best" title usually comes from the magazine that one pays to advertise in and not that it is actually "the best" around. Ask the locals where "the best" is and you will find a variety of answers....

Me, too! I spent a week down there last fall and, well, worked hard to stay away from the Buckhorn all too often. BTW, while the Bosque Birdwatchers doesn't have wifi, the Buckhorn does. Just go during one of their quieter hours.

Great Mexican food in Antonito, N.M.

If you find yourself going through Antonito, N.M.. no matter the time of day, stop for some excellent Mexican food at the:

Dutch Mill Cafe & Bar
