GCCB HowItWorksFinal

Our Lucky #7 winner is... Mineshaft Tavern & Fuego at La Posada. After tallying the score sheets, it was a tieǃ

Carlos D from the Morning Mayhem Show sampled burgers from each of the Smackdown’s nominated restaurants. Each burger was scored for appearance, ease of eating, quality of ingredients, melding of flavors, and chile flavor.

The eight finalists light their grills on Sept. 12 and concoct their perfect variation of their green chile cheeseburger. National food critics will select the Reigning Chomp, while those who purchase tickets for the event can cast their votes for the People’s Choice Award.

BUY TICKETS for the September 12th Smackdown. Taste all eight finalists' burgers, cast your vote and see who takes home the title of Santa Fe's Best Green Chile Cheeseburger.
