At the Buckhorn Tavern, you can get a lot of great tasting food, and in particular the most-ordered menu item there. Diners particularly like the Buckhorn Burger – a hamburger patty with tomatoes, lettuce, cheese, New Mexican green chile, and a hamburger bun. Normally, you add ketchup or mustard to the hamburger, but the green chile adds a lot of flavor to the hamburger that it isn’t too necessary. You can have it made to order. In addition, fries and a can of soda are also great to have along with the burger.
For those who want fries and something different, the Hamburger Special is truly unique. It is a hamburger patty smothered in green chile and cheese, topped with french fries and a slice of Texas toast. According to the Buckhorn Tavern, this is not a hamburger–and it really isn’t one.
The intended audience for these two plates are for those craving green chile and cheese.
Buckhorn Burger: ~ $6
Hamburger Special: ~ $7
