What’s A Lotaburger?

Albuquirky, New Mexico

March 6, 2020

There are a lot of Lotaburgers in Albuquirky!

From Blake’s Lotaburger website:

Expertly seasoned & seared Premium Angus Beef patties, tangy pickle slices, a perfect layer of mustard & fresh lettuce, onion & tomato all between two lightly toasted buns? Did I mention exclusively packaged, 100% Hatch Valley grown Green Chile that’s registered by the New Mexico Department of Agriculture? Quality ingredients: Check.

65 years of serving what National Geographic named “The World’s Best Green Chile Cheeseburger” across 80 locations & throughout New Mexico, Texas & Arizona? A LOTA Love: Check.

When the founding father of flavor & WWII Navy Veteran, Blake Chanslor, flipped the first LOTA Burger® in 1952, he gave birth to a New Mexico tradition. 65 years later, Blake’s is a cultural icon (I mean, have you seen me on AMC’s ‘Breaking Bad’? I’m a natural!) & synonymous with New Mexico cuisine.

Now, with a menu that includes rich & creamy milkshakes (to temper the very real heat of my 100% Hatch Valley Grown Green Chile) & award-winning breakfast burritos (an A.M. staple), there’s a whole LOTA reasons to get excited when Blake’s Lotaburger comes to town!

The LOTA Burger® & all its’ tasty menu-neighbors are treasured & craved by all who have tasted their greatness. Just ask USA Today*, National Geographic** & the Albuquerque Journal***!

As I say, “At Blake’s, if you are what you eat, you are AWESOME!”

*USA Today Readers’ Choice, voted “Best Green Chile Cheeseburger in New Mexico”

** National Geographic named “The World’s Best Green Chile Cheeseburger”

***Albuquerque Journal Readers’ Choice voted best Burger, Green Chile Burger & Breakfast Burrito
