The Best Burgers in Albuquerque

Burgers in both classic and creative versions fit seamlessly into Albuquerque's acclaimed dining scene. The city's characteristic cuisine embraces New Mexican specialties, most famously its red and green chiles, and puts a southwestern spin on all-American favorites. Burgers perfectly complement such cuisine and also merge often with local flavors – expect chile and cheese-topped burgers to star on many a menu. But where do the smartest, most experienced diners go for the best burger in Albuquerque? We gathered data covering thousands of restaurants to discover the best burger joints in the city according to OpenTable's savviest foodies. These exceptional restaurants represent the top spots in the Duke City to enjoy a world-class burger. Some offer dozens of options, others a singular burger that makes for an unforgettable meal. We recommend booking a table at any of these restaurants the next time a burger craving strikes. How about right now?

Seasons Rotisserie & Grill

1500 reviews
Along with claiming an ideal location right next to the historic Old Town Plaza, Seasons Rotisserie & Grill boasts one of the best burgers in Albuquerque. The restaurant’s creative cuisine – modern American with nods to the California wine country – includes a classic burger on the lunch menu. It’s a half-pound Angus cheddar burger, which comes on a toasted brioche roll with lemon aioli and a side of herbed fries. Diners can customize burgers with add-ons including green chile, blue cheese, bacon and avocado. There’s also an open-faced salmon burger with heirloom tomato, pickled ginger chutney, coconut-chai aioli and a side of beet chips. Be sure to spend some time on the rooftop patio with its unmatched views of Old Town and the Sandia Mountains.

Vintage 423

909 reviews
The signature burger at Vintage 423 – a top contender for the title of best burger in Albuquerque – is a major highlight of the sophisticated eatery’s lunch and lounge menus. The Vintage burger is an 8-ounce Angus beef patty on a potato bun with lettuce, tomato and onion. It comes with a choice of two toppings, with options including five cheeses, green chile, bacon and guacamole. Side dish options comprise French fries, sweet potato fries, onion rings, coleslaw, fruit and a side salad. Also note that Vintage 423 has one of the largest wine collections in the city, although local craft brews on tap might be a more fitting accompaniment to a top-notch burger.

Is it possible that a sophisticated wine bar presents the best burger in Albuquerque? Zinc Wine Bar and Bistro certainly makes that case with its open face patty melt plate, a major stand-out on its weekend brunch menu. It’s a half-pound Angus beef patty topped with mushrooms, caramelized onions and oozy Swiss cheese, with Texas toast in place of a traditional bun. The burger comes on a bed of fries with a green salad on the side. Ample wines by the glass are available, and brunch diners might also order from an array of classic brunch cocktails and local beers on tap. Adding to the bistro’s appeal is its charming venue with stained glass windows, exhibition kitchen and centerpiece zinc-topped bar.
