The Santa Fe Bite at 311 Old Santa Fe Trl, Santa Fe, NM 87501-2707 (Formerly Bobcat Bite Restaurant) has been a place touted as having the best burgers. They are okay. No onion, not enough tomato, green chili was not flavorful enough, too much beef...More

The Santa Fe Bite (formally and for far longer, Bobcat Bite or simply "The Bite") closed yesterday. Bonnie and John deserve a retirement but none the less, this was a sad day. If you've eaten one of their famous Green Chile Burgers, consider yourself lucky....More

We had to make one last visit to the Bite prior to their final closing on October 26, 2018. They are an institution in Santa Fe and we have been visiting for years. Years of waiting for a seat in the dirt parking lot at...More

They are connected to a run down hotel which is being taken over and being fixed up. The vibe in the restaurant was very friendly and my wife absolutely loved the chocolate malted milk shake. The burger were good but nothing special.

We had dinner here on a very busy Friday evening. Waited for about 20 minutes for a table inside, which worked out good since it was a chilly evening. We were seated in a booth by the window, noticed the seat was torn and taped...More

We stopped here last night of a late bite around 8:30pm. Inside seating was full and noisy so we sat outside despite the chill. My partner had a ham and cheese sandwich which he said was good and not bad, meaning average. He liked the...More

this place has the best green chile burgers so you better go fast since they are closing later in October.

You had better get to this amazing burger place in the next couple of months because, shocking news, the Santa Fe bite is closing. Probably the best burger I’ve ever had and I think you will agree. I shared the 10 ounce green chili bacon...More

Over priced for hamburgers and not so great service. Ants crawling on the wall, small and not so clean

The Famous Green Chile Cheeseburgers are back! John and Bonnie Eckre, formerly of Bobcat Bite, are taking their food to the next level at the new Santa Fe Bite located inside Garrett's Desert Inn on Old Santa Fe Trail. In addition to their savory Green Chile Cheeseburgers, Santa Fe Bite features fresh tacos, fish and chips, sandwiches, a choice of French or sweet potato fries and a little something they like to call 'The Big Bite' that comes with a side of buttery garlic bread. Creamy milkshakes and homemade lemonade are just some of the sweet treats popping up on their new menu. Also, we are now serving beer and wine. Santa Fe Bite opens at 8am Saturday and Sunday which means early birds can sample tasty Breakfast menu offerings like hot cornmeal pancakes with maple syrup, brioche French toast with maple caramel sauce and house-made biscuits with Mom's gravy. Spend a leisurely Sunday outside at Santa Fe Bite. The new Brunch menu includes eggs benedict, Steak & Eggs and Huevos Rancheros.
