With over 75 locations in New Mexico, Blakes Lotaburger has become a New Mexico institution. Blakes Lotaburger is by far the best chain burger restaurant in New Mexico. Some people call it “Blakes” others call it “Lotaburger” which ever way you call it, people will know what you are talking about. Lotaburger offers good quality food. Many of the location’s now have drive-in’s, but still the fastest way is to go inside and order at the window. Once you order you will be given a number and when your order is ready the number will be called.
The signature burger is the Lotaburger. Most of the time I get it with cheese and green chile. It is not over greasy and the bun’s taste great. Lotaburger contry fries are good, but most the times I order my combo with season fries. I also like Lotaburgers chicken tender combo, which comes with chicken tenders, seasoned fries, and a medium drink. I enjoy their drinks, especially the ice that makes the drinks unique. My wife is an ice conosur, she always goes to Blakes for their drinks. Their shakes are wonderful, especially vanilla, my favorite.
I have to disclose that I worked for Blakes Lotaburger when I was in high school. It was the hardest fast food job I have ever had. They are super clean compared to other fast food places I have worked. Their is very little waste, if an employe dropped something on the ground or their was a order canceled, the employe would have to place the food in a special container and document anything that was to be placed in the trash. This is opposite of all the national food chains that I have worked for, they waste a lot of food. Lotaburger also make everything fresh and use quality ingredient’s, that’s why they are significantly slower. I would highly recommend Blakes Lotaburger if you are in the mood for a good quality green chile cheese burger.
