Help “The Western” make the Green Chile Cheeseburger Trail

The deadline to vote for your favorite green chile cheeseburger restaurant in New Mexico is only days away. Voting officially ends at midnight March 31, 2011. Cloudcroft’s Western Bar & Cafe is one of the nearly 200 New Mexico green chile cheeseburger restaurants that have been nominated for inclusion on the New Mexico Tourism Department’s updated web-based Green Chile Cheeseburger Trail.

If you want to help the Western Bar & Cafe claim its spot on the Trail, now’s the time to back up your taste buds with your votes. The top 30 restaurants who receive the most votes will have the honor of being part of the state’s Green Chile Cheeseburger Trail Map. A culinary panel will add a few notable burgers to the list, to make sure recommendations are available to visitors in all corners of New Mexico.

Right now the top five vote getters are:
1. Blake’s Lotaburger, state wide
2. Bobcat Bite, Santa Fe
3. Buckhorn Tavern, San Antonio
4. Lumpy’s, Albuquerque
5. Owl Bar and Café, San Antonio.
