Meat: Burnt on the edges - FROZEN in the middle. – I've gone to the store at 3207 Richmond NE for a few years, but after todays (06/04/08) experience I will not be returning. The meat I was served was - to put it nicely - the worst thing I have ever eaten in my entire life.

I would have Taken it back and demanded a refund had I not been several miles away by the time I got to the middle of the burger, I've already been sick once and I'm not feeling any better.

I will never again be returning to Blakes and will not be suggesting it to anyone I know.

THE WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE I HAVE EVER HAD! – I went to the one in Alamogordo NM and the cashier was so rude to me that i will never return there again! I had told her that I needed to place 2 orders, she took the first order and then walk away. I waited for her to return to make the other order and when i made the order she was pounding on the register hard like she was angry then the manager told her that she would finish my order because she was angry. i thought every thing was fine until the cashier started saying "what the hell is wrong with her?" and "that stupid white B***H she makes me so mad! I can't believe that she would stand there and and not say any thing about another order. what do i look like a slave? she makes me so mad!" and the manager said or did any thing! I have never been treated like that in my life! I will never return to Blake's Lotaburger!

One of the top reasons I miss Albuquerque AND New Mexico, A classic that never goes out of style! – I was a student back in the mid-eighties and later lived in the NE heights for 2 years before moving away.Countless times I dined at the Blake's on Coors NW (which is now gone-sniff, sniff) and after acclimating my tastebuds to green chiles (being from Michigan), I grew to love the classic Lotaburger w/ green chili & cheese. Last January, I returned just to visit . I drove my rental car up Central and as I pulled into the Lotaburger, I began to giggle foolishly almost like a schoolgirl anticipating my reunion with an old flame. So here I was, once again in the city I once called home with the BEST burger ever made. Over the next 3 days, I ate at various Blakes locations twice a day and left with a long-time itch finally scratched, There are other Johnny-come-latelys in the green chili burger category both in NM and elsewhere but having sampled a wide variety, I can truly say that nothing quite measures up to Blakes.

I miss Blake's!!!!!!!!!! – Blake's is a legend. I'd give just about anything right now for a green chile cheeseburger and a vanilla Diet Coke, along with a side of fries. Blake's is definitely at the top of my list of things I miss about New Mexico!

The *BEST* burger ever! – It has been 18 years since I lived in Albuquerque, and I miss many things about it but the green chili cheeseburgers have to be at or near the top of the list! IF you are traveling on Interstate 40 through NM you MUST stop and have one of these. I"m outta here! Peace! :)

Hamburger – The best way to have a Lotaburger is to order it this way.

Lotaburger

with double meat

double cheese

green chile

french fries

coke

They are made fresh when you order, not before. Best hamburger I've ever tasted in the USA

Editorial Review – Green chile burgers keep customers coming back to this New Mexico chain of fast-food stands.

great burgers! – I have lived in Albuquerque for almost 20 years and i must say Blake's is one of my favorite places to eat. The decorating is not much to look at in any of their restaurants, but no matter what you get there it will not only taste delicious, but it will be exactly what you ordered!

That makes me SO Homesick! – Ask any (non-vegan) New Mexican expatriate what he/she misses most about the state and somewhere in the list, you'll undoubtedly find a Blakes Green Chile Cheeseburger.

It's usally the first place I visit for lunch whenever I return.. Having moved the California, In N Out burgers are a fair substitute, but NOTHING in the world compares to a Green Chile Cheeseburger and Chocolate Coke.

Anyone be willing to FedEx me one sometime? :o)
