If you've spent any extended period of time in Albuquerque, there's a good chance you've stopped into Blake's Lotaburger by now, seeing as the fast food spot has been there since 1952. Blake's also already has restaurants in Texas, however Tucson is about to get the first location in the state for the New Mexico restaurant chain.
According to the Albuquerque Journal
, Blake's plans to open the first of a few planned Old Pueblo joints at 2810 East Speedway Boulevard by mid-summer. The company's business development manager, Craig Wood, told the Albuquerque Journal that there were no plans to expand outside of Tucson in Arizona at this time.
So, just what is a Lotaburger?
The restaurant also is known for serving up chili dogs, seasoned fries, breakfast burritos, milkshakes, pulled pork sandwiches and breaded chicken sandwiches. Blake's also occasionally features specials like fish and chips as well as a "50 to 1" burger with two burger patties, two strips of bacon, cheese and Hatch green chiles.
