A great little burger joint in the middle of nowhere. Came here on the suggestion to get a giant burger packed with the green chili, and I was not disappointed. It had a great taste to it, an excellent kick of flavor yet still wasn't overwhelmingly spicy. I highly recommend it; "Lota Burger with Green Chili and Cheese". Throw in... More

This was the worst excuse for a restaurant I have ever seen. Dirty. Thugs behind the counter, not a clean table anywhere and NO customers anywhere. We just walked out.

I came here for a quick dinner while in Albuquerque for work-related travel. I'd driven by it a few times, and honestly, I hadn't realized it was still in business--it's a real no frills-no thrills kind of place that never seems to have a crowd. At any rate, the cashier was nice enough and the food wasn't bad. It certainly... More

Bit of a wait for the food, and there's limited inside seating at this location, but employees were friendly. Once we got our food (Lotaburger green chili cheeseburgers) OMG that burst of flavor on the first bite! Medium heat level that didn't overpower the flavor of the rest of the ingredients. Overall, worth the minor discomfort of the crowded dining... More

Hubby's frequent choice in the Las Cruces area is Blake's because the green chile is always hot, sometimes very hot. Not the same at this location in ABQ. Burger was overcooked and the green chile was not very flavorful and not hot at all. And, what's up with the prison iron? Are the customers being protected from surly staff or... More

Blake's Lotaburgers are all over Albuquerque and you must stop by at least once for a green chili lotaburger. It started over 40 years ago with one drive-in in Santa Fe and was simply called Lotaburger and were the most delicious burgers anywhere, with fresh hot green chili. Now that they're called "Blakes," the patties aren't as big and juicy... More

It's been years since I've been in NM, and Blakes on San Mateo was my first stop for a meal once I landed in ABQ. At first, my daughter was skeptical, but after eating her first ITSABURGER, she was hooked! Thanks for such a great meal!

I have been eating Blake's Lotaburgers for many years (not that many burgers per year, but 4-6 a year for 50 years is still a lot!). I like them. This review is for almost any Lotaburger restaurant. This fast food chain is throughout New Mexico, but it is only in NM. They begin cooking the burger only after it is... More
