Great environment, great food. What more could you ask for?! This retro themed drive-in has got a green chile cheeseburger calling your name. Plus, it's family-friendly. Nothing better than a mid-week family dinner date where you don’t even have to get out of the car!

Another family-owned restaurant who serves some killer burgers! Their green chile cheeseburger is no. joke. They’ve got something for everyone, but the green chile cheeseburger has made a name for itself. Their overwhelming amount of good reviews speaks for itself. Mick’s Chile fix has been a local fav since they opened in 2003. Make sure to give them a visit, you won’t be disappointed!

Wow oh wow. This place is doing something right! When we asked for recommendations on our Instagram, Steel Bender came in as the #1 recommended place! So of course we had to give it a try. Let me give it to ya straight, we were not disappointed. 10/10. Amazing environment, amazing staff, and the cherry on top? They offer gluten free buns! Their award list is longer than my to-do list (and that thing is LONG). But their most notable - for the sake of this article at least- is their 2019 People’s Choice award in the Green Chile Cheeseburger Smackdown. The people continue to speak and we are awarding them with the 2021 Mariposa’s Choice: Best Green Chile Cheeseburger. Was this award just created? Yes. Do we stand behind it? Absolutely.


Well, there ya have it folks. Top three best Green Chile cheeseburgers. Have you ever been to any of these restaurants? Let us know what you think of their GCCB (we just made that term up. Catchy right?)
