An old fashioned hamburger joint just off the tourist path. The food is really fine. Great even. But it is really expensive. Half again as much as most places it competes with. So shut your eyes and pay the check. The food is (almost) worth it.

First off, I was overcharged by over $2 yet the girl at the register could not explain why. A little snack ended up costing over $12. The prices on the menu were not what I was charged and I didn't even get my shake until 10 minutes after my food!! I should have been tipped off by the empty parking... More

I ordered 2 of the tamales and a burger and wow, everything was good but those tamales were amazing, the perfect ratio of masa to filling and the green chile sauce was the perfect topper.

Our orders were so screwed up. We complained to the girl beinging them to us, she just walked away. We asked for the owner...a lady came out and apologized but didn't offer anything for our screwed up orders or the rude waitress. I won't ever go back. If a places cares so little about getting orders right then I don't... More

We love this place! I always get the combo #4 which is a chicken sandwich topped with green chili, onions, and cheese. Super good and also pretty big. I can never finish it! Their curly fries are also awesome. Definitely a must go!

Stopped in for the first time today and have the combo special. Basic cheeseburger, 1/4 pound on a regular sized bun covered with green chili, sautéed onions and cheese. Burger patty was very thin but covered the bun. I felt that it was an average burger which was fried on a flat top grill. The owner served us and he... More

Stopped in today with the family while here on vacation. Wife and I had the carne asada tortas, and they were awesome! My picky 13 year old loved this place and was totally satisfied. We heard no complaints from our 3 year old, because she was busy devouring her corn dog and fries. The service was friendly, quick, and inexpensive.... More

First visit they had fish tacos as their special - so good we came back. This visit, the grilled chicken sandwich. Why can't the rest of the world make something this simple as good as the ones here? Well-seasoned, flattened chicken topped with grilled onions and a generous amount of green chilies. Freshly toasted bun too. Should have saved room... More

Bens Big Burger-just a small "mom and pop shop" off the beaten path but definitely worth stopping in and having a bite. I had the 1/4 lb chipotle burger and hubby had the 1/2 lb burger. They were soooooo tasty! Save room for a malt or shake at the end as they offered all sorts of unique flavors.
