  1. What a thorough GREEN CHILE CHEESEBURGER list, Steve ~ shared this on my FB page. Thanks for linking to me!

    1. Hi Melodie! I'm looking forward to trying Day's Hamburgers the next time I'm in Las Cruces. Rockin' BZ Burgers (which you've also posted on) was very deserving of their top 10 spot. I was bummed to hear they closed their place in Las Cruces, but at least the one in Alamogordo is still there.
