Thank you our sponsors, producers, chefs, and volunteers for making 2018 our best year yet!

2018 Reigning Chomp

Mas Tapas y Vino, Chef Marc Quiñones

2018 People’s Choice Winner

Street Food Institute, Chef David Sellers

The Green Chile Cheeseburger Smackdown has one simple goal: to determine the BEST burger in New Mexico. You have the chance to taste and vote from an impressive bracket of independently owned restaurants. Your votes will determine the People’s Choice Winner. A panel of foodie celebrities will judge the Reigning Chomp Winner. Sorry for the meat sweats, but we know you’ll want to try every burger before casting your votes.
