The wife and I were traveling though Taos and just pulled into 5 Star Burger Not knowing anything about this place. Small place and cloth napkin on the table, this is not your normal burger shack. Looked at the menu and notice burger and fries around 12 bucks. Don't let that set you back the food and serving are awesome.... More

The place is always busy. The hamburgers are wonderful & cooked to perfection. If you are staying in Taos or the surrounding area it is a perfect place to have lunch or dinner. The prices are very reasonable, & the quality of meat is superb. Enjoy!

Its always challenging to find a place to dine with my daughter. This was recommended by our nearby hotel. I had a good burger, a local craft beer, and she had a good salad, but didn't want to admit eating in a burger joint.

Gourmet burgers are juicy, high quality and delicious. Fries are crispy and fresh cut. Excellent meal in a comfortable atmosphere.

Without question the best burger ever ... the "Old Fashioned" is superb ... a gem of a place ... and the fries were especially good ... a basket was more than the two of us could finish ... A great place especially if you are really hungry!

We love eating at 5 Star when we are in Taos. The burgers are so good and you can get a variety of toppings. We used to love the fried pickles but they changed them recently to a less desirable version. Excellent onion rings.

We read the reviews on TA and decided to try this place and are so glad we did. Not fussy, just great service, good food and very reasonable prices. My husband had the green chile burger and said it was great. I ordered the portobello mushroom burger and highly recommend it if you want something without meat but are tired... More

We had to adjust our dinner plans and ended up at 5 star Burger. My cousin and I had salads and my husband had fish & chips and her husband had a grilled cheese. The fact that we could have wine with these items was pleasing and the food was good. I really enjoyed my Salmon salad. I would recommend... More
