Great burger and great Shanghai Chicken salad. Can thoroughly recommend this restaurant. Just one complaint; why do all the eating places in Taos shut at 9pm? I'm on vacation...I don't want to go to bed at 9.30!

Hi Redfeather2013, Thanks for the review. We're happy to hear that you enjoyed the burger and the chicken salad. And we wish we knew why people won't come out to eat a late supper in Taos. Sometimes we don't want to go to bed at 9:30 either! More

5 Star Burgers lived up to its rep for us. We enjoyed the green chili burger and the 5 Star burger with a side order of fried green beens. You have to try the fried green beens. That was our big meal for the day! We'll go back for happy hour, but only get the regular-sized burgers, not the sliders.

Great service from Scott... Very personable, as well as, professional and helpful in helping me select a beer. A happy hour menu with enough choices & bargain prices that I never even opened the regular menu. Great sliders both beef and pork, as well as yummy fried pickles. And to top it off a nice $1 ice cream cone for... More

They have a special hamburger of the month. The staff is professional, friendly and accommodating. Gray atmosphere and paintings.

Great burgers but the service was very poor. Really annoying loud music made it worse. Not an enjoyable meal. Might try again for the burgers, they were really good.

I know that this review is tardy. We previously enjoyed our meals here. This time, not so much. My wife repeatedly asked for her burger to be well done, and after sending it back to be cooked some more, she ate it anyway, even though it was under cooked (for her). My food and my daughter's food was good. However,... More

Hi DallasGlen, You've given us a nice review in the past and we are so sorry that we let you down on your last visit. We really apologize that we failed on getting your wife's burger temperature twice and truly hope that her not feeling well has not a result of the food. Thanks for letting us know. More

Good burger joint if you want upscale hamburgers. A hamburger to me is fast food, when you start adding all the garnishments it changes what you are eating. Go try it out and make your own decision.

5 Star Burgers creates a whole new, respectable level of fast food dining. It moves beyond the cliche of burgers to deliver wonderfully sourced and prepared food that won't break the bank. Attentive wait staff, cool vibe, local craft beers and great side dishes make the burger experience worth the trip
