It has been about two years since the last time I've had a hamburger. I have to watch my intake of red meats since I had to have two stents put into an arterial artery in 2018.
But all that changed today when I got a craving for a hamburger. I wasn't interested in a Denny's hamburger. I decided that I would try a burger from Big Ass Burgers in Thoreau, New Mexico.

I have passed by Big Ass Burgers many times since I do some minor grocery shopping across the street at BJ's Market across the street. But I have never bought anything at Big Ass Burgers.
So, I drove the 13 miles to Thoreau and went to Big Ass Burgers. They had a sign that read "no indoor dining" due to the pandemic. I looked over their big sign of combo plates. They must have had about 15-20 different combo plates. I stopped reading when I got to their one pound burger combos. I settled on a quarter pound cheeseburger combo, which consisted of a cheeseburger, curly fries and a drink. I ordered, paid for it and waited out in the car. After about five minutes, they brought out my order.

I ate the burger there and it did not disappoint. It was quite good, almost as good as an In-N-Out Burger. It definitely was much better than a Sonic burger that I had four years ago. I decided to eat the fries at home. Those were good too.

Big Ass Burger serves good burgers, based on the cheeseburger I had. I would be back again.
My grade: A.
