GOT TO WORK.

It )s been so much fun and we )ve had friends and family from across the state come and help us.

THEY )RE BRINGING BACK SOME FAMILIAR FACES.

We have some of the same chefs who were here before.

AND THEY HOPE OTHERS WILL RETURN.

That )s one thing about New Mexico, we have an amazing community feel across the board.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, flipping burger, sizzle, clang of spatula.

THEY WANT YOU TO KNOW THEY )RE SERVING UP THAT SAME BELOVED BUCKHORN BURGER burger sizzle.

We )ve hired the opening chef and the closing chef, so you will have the same chef that you came into eight months ago making your burger, along with our new crew, as well.

FRESH GREEN CHILE AND ALL.
