I had the green chile cheeseburger - medium rare, it was as expected and has a great kick to it. Great location in old town, nice diner and offers a variety if New Mexican meals.

We selected this establishment while in Santa Fe based on the positive TA reviews. However, our experience wasn't quite up to the hype. First of all, this is a diner experience and you shouldn't expect anything beyond that from an ambiance standpoint. It is clean...More

Green chili cheeseburger is great! We enjoyed the atmosphere, and while our waitress wasn’t particularly friendly or attentive, the other waitstaff was very nice. Fun things to look at.

the green chili cheeseburgers are exceptional as well as the huge plate of home cooked thick cut potato chips. A fine lunch!

The atmosphere is friendly and now that the Bite has moved into Santa Fe (it used to be Bobcat Bite on Old Las Vegas Highway) it's more spacious and comfortable. Most importantly, the food is always outstanding, especially of course the green chile cheeseburger. Medium...More

Okay, so it's not the healthiest thing in the world (and there is no turkey burger option), but if you're going to do a juicy, red meat burger, this is the one to do! Moist, tasty, cooked to order on a big soft bun you...More

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.
