Have a five star burger

Review > Restaurant does burgers right

The next time you’re in Santa Fe and craving a good burger, drop into Five Star Burgers on Guadalupe Street. The name says it all.
The location can be a bit tricky to find because it’s part of a strip mall. However, it’s across the street from the Santa Fe National Cemetery, in a parking lot right next to Albertson’s grocery store.
The restaurant is small and simple. Gold and purple hues grace the walls, which will suit Los Angeles Lakers fans just fine. There is a TV above the bar and the tables are small, but sufficiently spaced apart.
The menu is not very extensive, but it doesn’t need to be. The restaurant does a few things, but they do them well. They offer burgers, but also different kinds of sandwiches, along with salads.
On a recent visit, the appetizer of choice was fried pickles. These aren’t your thinly sliced pickle chips. These are spears — four to be exact. They are dipped in batter and fried and served with ranch and green chile ranch dipping sauce. At $3, they might seem a bit pricey, but they are well worth it. The batter is crispy and the pickles retain their flavor through the frying process.
