Green chile cheeseburgers

For me, the definitive GCC will always be those cooked up by Lester & Emily at the (late lamented) Break-21 Cafe in Pie Town, NM...

Ah, memory. My current fave is served up at Harry's Roadhouse in Santa Fe. BIG slab of ground round, cooked rare if you want it, good bun, choice of cheese, lotsa fries & fixins. Harry's isn't totally consistent, but when it's right, and washed down with a cold beer, it's heavenly. Only problem is, the burger's so big, I never have room for a piece of Harry's wonderful pies.

The other local fave is at the Bobcat Bite, nearby on Old Las Vegas Hwy, at the Bobcat Crossing overpass. This has never done much for me -- a bit too plain & unadorned, and NO BEER.

There was recent discussion here re the GCC's at the Owl Bar in San Antonio, S. of Socorro. I've always found them just OK, but service is fast, the beer is cold, the bar is atmospheric, and alternatives are few....

Happy eating--
Pete Tillman
