I stayed in San Antonio two nights recently. This gave me the opportunity to compare the rival green chile cheeseburgers I had heard so much about. The Buckhorn is warm and friendly with a great staff. The burger was fantastic. They also serve several local...More

This place was smaller than expected, even more charming and authentic, and the green chile burger lived up to my high expectations. An attraction in itself! This is not a fast food restaurant (it’s not slow, either). Enjoy the surroundings while waiting.

Great little place, emphasis on little tho. Be prepared to wait for seating if you hit them when they're busy. Worth it though, great food and staff here.

Stopped in on the way to Bosque del Apache. Top notch green chile cheeseburger. Rustic atmosphere. I'm a big fan of The Owl across the street but decided to try the Buckhorn. Wasn't disappointed. Friendly service.
