Blakes Lotaburger

I haven't visited New Mexico in a few years and as such found myself craving a Lotaburger several times in the last few weeks. As is often the case with stuff like it also got me thinking about Blakes Lotaburger's history in Albuquerque.

The LOTA Burger was born on July 9th, 1952 on a simple grill in a small hamburger stand in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  It was an immediate hit & the locals couldn't get enough.  Blake Chanslor, the Founder & WWII Navy Veteran from Borger, Texas, knew he had something special so he opened another Blake's Lotaburger nearby (& then another & then another & then a few more).
