Top 20 Places to Enjoy a Burger in the Albuquerque Area


Is there any food more familiar than a juicy burger? Think about it. Most restaurants have a burger option, even when it comes to fine dining.

When I am ready to order, I hardly ever look at a menu because I love burgers so much! “I’ll have the green chile cheeseburger please.” So I decided to poll the masterminds of Facebook aka 2000 of my closest friends and family to find out their favorite places to enjoy a nice, hearty burger in the Albuquerque Metro area.

The places below are listed in no particular order.

  1. I love the housemade veggie burgers at The Acre! A good veggie burger keeps some of the guilt out of the experience because I can’t eat a burger without a side of their hand cut french fries.

    • That’s such a great idea! I love my burgers, but I can only finish half of one. Maybe I’ll try the veggie burger. And yes, I miss restaurant fries so badly!
