Across New Mexico, few things are as iconic as the green chile cheeseburger.
The tasty sandwiches are a staple of many a menu around the Land of Enchantment. Beef patty. slice of gooey cheese. Chopped green chile. Bun.
Some of them top $20 at fancy restaurants. McDonald’s offers them up on the cheap.
Beginning this week, the Journal is launching a new series: Green chile cheeseburger review.
Reporter Ryan Boetel started at Oak Tree Cafe and will add another video review each week. He’ll keep eating the burgers and scoring them on a 1-10 scale.
The rules: Get the burger however the restaurant normally serves it up. No additions or subtractions. Eat it outside the place while the burger is still fresh.
