We had a bison burger and a salad - both were delicious. The service could improve as there were several people working but the wait to be seated and get our order and food was extremely slow.

Thanks for the review and for letting us know that our floor staff was a little sluggish. We'll work on that.

On the road heading south, just a bit outside of the walking Taos walking zone is a great burger place. They have great meat. Its cooked perfectly. And lots of tasty options. Prices are just a buck or two over the standard burger joint and...More

We visited the Taos location of this small NM chain for a late lunch. Our order consisted of two different variations of bison burger, and one soft drink. We were told by the server that upgrading from a beef burger to a bison burger would...More

Sorry you feel that way. It is simply not economically feasible to offer an 8 oz fresh ground antibiotic and hormone free burger on a local bakery brioche bun with premium toppings and a side for $10 or under. We stand behind our quality.

There's not a lot to choose from when in Taos on a Sunday evening so we went with 5 Star Burgers. While the burgers were good, they weren't so good to justify the cost in my opinion. Overpriced but good food. Service was a little...More

Sure, we could sell less expensive burgers. But they wouldn't be 8 oz. fresh ground hormone and antibiotic-free Black Angus. We do appreciate you giving us a try.

I have been to 5 Star many times and both the food and the service is always stellar! Love the happy hour menu, and to balance out the burgers, their salads are also great! Love the crispy jalapenos!
