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.

Back to the Bosque after two years, the Buckhorn Tavern continues to serve the best green chili cheeseburger in San Antonio and hence the best green chili cheeseburger in the world!

Stopped here on way to Truth or Consequences. Split a Chili Verde Burger which was DELISH! Fries were hand cut but soggy even though we ordered them extra crispy. No longer have the great onion rings they used to serve. Full bar. Tiny place w about 7 booths and half dozen tables plus a few seats at bar. Bill w 2 beers was around $20. Might try The Owl next time.

Top notch burgers, friendly owners and wait-staff, and, did I mention the burgers are worthy of their excellent rating? For one of the best burgers you have ever had, I definitely recommend the Buckhorn (Green chile cheese burger). It is a large burger, cooked medium (just pink on the inside), and bursting with flavor. Plan to take your time, and enjoy the company you are with, as this is not fast food (you are reminded of this by a sign as you enter the tavern). Unique décor, rustic location, and the proximity to the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge are positives. Relax over most excellent burgers, enjoy the wildlife at the Bosque, and watch the sunset over the wetlands there. Makes for a wonderful day!
