Over Rated – Overall, I would say that this establishment is over-rated; The menu extremely limited (steaks are available), and the price is high for what you get. The burgers are delicious, but small. It was hard to find or taste the green chile in the burger. Order at least a double meat burger because the patties are small. One unique item you will find here is people sign dollar bills for which the cafe posts on their walls throughout. At some point, the owners take the money and donate it to charity. There are also several pictures of "Stars" posted on the walls throughout the establishment. I don't see what the hype is over this "famous" place, but it was fun and not too bad. For a family of five it costs us $29.00 not including the tip for burgers, fries, drinks, and two beers.
Heaven – The Owl Cafe has the WORLDS best green chili cheese burgers you will ever sink you teeth in. The chili has great flavor and little heat. Add fries to the order and you are going to be full for a long time.
OUTPOST – (I have been to many NM places, many times) Ancient Secret - go to Carrizozo for the best green chile cheeseburger... because the Owl Cafe is merely a pretender to the throne. The service deserved the rating I gave, they are too comfortable to care. At the Owl Cafe I had their signature entree and the Root Beer. it just isn't the best. It is better than a McDonald's with Bueno Chile, but to TRULY find the best, travel a little and you will find it. Or settle for an approximation.
Best Burgers in New Mexico – The Owl bar is a nice 50's style restruant with a very friendly staff and overall great food. The owl bar is the most famous for there green chile cheese burgers, which unfortunately are so good that they are usually about the only thing I eat there.
The burger they'll serve in Heaven – This is a real live green chile cheeseburger; not for the wimpy. Add a side of onion rings and it will remind you why it's good to live in the "Land of Enchantment."
Best Green Chile Cheeseburger – The Owl Cafe serves the best Green Chile Cheeseburger hands down. Celebrities visiting Albuquerque drive out of their way to have one. You can't beat the Owl Cafe for a great burger at a reasonable price
you gotta be kidding? – overpriced, medocre burgers.

Owl be back! – The first thing that attracted me to the Owl Cafe was the vintage car show that was going on as I checked into the Howard Johnson's just behind the restaurant. This is a twice a month event. I did not notice the Owl facade until the following morning. After checking into the hotel after being on the road for 12 hours, I was ready for a feast and a drink or two. The Owl Cafe came through on both accounts. The green chili cheeseburger (their specialty) was prepared to perfection and the portions, generous. The hip-hop atmosphere was alive and well and matched the little known history that makes the Owl Cafe famous. You have to go to find out what it is. You will be surprised. Overall, I had a very enjoyable experience at the Owl Cafe and highly recommend it. It is conveniently just off I-40.
