    Green Chile cheeseburgers

    I used to live in Winter Park CO and would pass through Trinidad on my way to New Mexico. I used to stop in a diner/cafe that used to serve the best green chile cheeseburgers. I believe it used to be on the right side of the street heading east, not to far from I-25. Does anyone happen to know the name and if it is still in business. I would like to stop back in Trinidad in March when I'm in Colorado and New Mexico.

    Thank you.

    Dennis,
    There are several places in town to get that delight. What you are referring to is most likely Lee's BBQ. Right off Arizona Ave. It has been here and hopefully will continue to be for many years.

    Dennis and Pete, it could also be "Bob & Earl's Cafe. Located 1118 Robinson Avenue, Hwy 12. Their specialty is "Chi Lee" burgers and fries [:p].

    You guys, Dennis might even be thinking of C&H. I know that they have green chili cheeseburgers. That cafe is right off the freeway and just down a couple of blocks off Commercial Street. threelazyl

    From that description...Lee's but again almost EVERY rest. in town offers this local delight. You can't that I have ever found anywhere else in the COUNTRY find this outside the local area here. The ElPaso has a good one. The El Capitain used to but don't know with their latest upgrades if they still do or not. Toti's cafe had a great one when it was open. So much chili so little time.

    I remember a place called La Fiesta. It used to be on Main St. across the street from Safeway and not but a block from I-25 it was on the right side heading east. I know they had outstanding Mexican food. I think they moved to the Bell Block and after that, I'm not sure. I don't think it is around anymore. If it is please let me know as I really enjoyed their food.

    Hey Steve! Good to see you posting. The La Fiesta was exactly as described. Now in it's place is another excellent place called the Mission at the Bell Block I think. It was owned as La Fiesta by the Don and LuAnn and they did a great job with it. One thing I know is that no matter where you go here you can probably find one.

    That sounds good Pete but I probably won't be in Trinidad till summer. I remember you stating that you use to be a bouncer. Do you recall the Atlantic Bar and the Greenlight Bar? These bars might have been before your time but if not did you know the owners?
