According to the experts, the best green chile cheeseburger in New Mexico comes from Oso Grill in Capitan.
Ten competitors from across the state put their savory creations to the test during Monday’s green chile cheeseburger challenge at the State Fair.
Among the judges was KRQE News 13’s own David Romero.
Last year’s winner from Sparky’s Burgers in Hatch says while its great to earn the bragging rights, just being involved is its own reward.
“It’s good publicity. It’s just fun to do it — it’s fun to compete with everybody — and whether you win or not, it’s just good branding. It’s good to get out,” said Teako Nunn, Sparky’s Burgers.
Oso Grill swept both the official tasting and the people’s choice award.
Fuddrucker’s took second place.

- El Bruno’s – Cuba
