Green Chile Cheeseburger Trail
New Mexico didn’t invent the cheeseburger, but we did invent a state-wide driving tour based on the love of America’s favorite food combined with a culinary rock star – New Mexico’s Hatch green chile pepper.
New Mexico Green Chile Cheeseburger
If you are a chile pepper ‘newbie,’ start with the food everybody likes – the cheeseburger – and try it the New Mexico way. There are over 100 restaurants on the Green Chile Cheeseburger Trail and three of them are right near Las Cruces and Hacienda RV Resort.
Dick’s Café – Since 1959, Dick’s Café has been warming the tummies and tastebuds of the Mesilla Valley with the freshest ingredients, including locally-grown Hatch chilies. Visit Dick’s at 2305 South Valley Drive in Las Cruces, or call them at (575) 524-1360.
Burger Nook – Family owned and operated Burger Nook has been serving French fries, burritos, tacos, and big, flame-broiled green chile cheeseburgers since 1983.
