New Mexico claims to fame


Syndicated Columnist

SANTA FE -- There I was, just the other day, sniveling in a column about how New Mexico never gets any respect and then my cousin Margene Harris, from San Antonio, N.M. tells me that Food Network star Bobby Flay had a crew in town for three days in mid-May to film a show about Manny's Buckhorn Tavern.

The Buckhorn's owner Bobby Olguin. was challenged to a hamburger cook-off by the nationally known Flay. We won't know who won until the show airs and we won't know that date until Olguin gets a call later this month. He says he'll let us know.

So how did a national network get to know about the Buckhorn Tavern in a little town of 700 people? Well, Olguin already has made some top 10 lists of the best burgers in the nation.

In case it surprises you that there is a San Antonio in New Mexico, look about 15 miles south of Socorro, just off I-25. But I'll bet you have heard of San Antonio. It's the home of another famous hamburger joint, the Owl Bar, just across the street. Both cafes are absolutely worth giving a try. Locals I have talked with say they prefer the Buckhorn.
