I really wanted to love Holy Cow. Which is Holy Burger now for whatever reason. It was a cold evening so the only option was to eat inside although they probably have three times the available seating outside. Unimpressive on the outside although a bit...More

Stopped in for dinner, great burgers and fries. The place is very loud and you can’t hear each other talking. They were very busy when we stopped in. It’s a good place for cheap eats

Wonderfully tasty and large burger. Didn't even need a side. Waiter very helpful with beer selections and was completely honest about not needing more than just the burger. A great place for a meal in ABQ!

Perhaps one of the best burgers in Albuquerque. Excellent recipe, and perfectly cooked and prepared. And the huge plate of fries that I didn't think I would eat, well I did. The fries were fresh and perfectly cooked golden and crunchy. Stripped down café style...More

Holy Cow is absolutely nothing to look at from the outside -- bland, gray and uninviting. We've driven by it countless times and not given the place a second thought. But in search of a green chile cheeseburger one day we decided to give it...More

Great burger and fries. Fast service. Our server Dominic was great and gave us some good advice on other places in the area. Don't miss this place if you are in Albuquerque.

Holy Cow was recommended by a B&B just a short walk away, and it did not disappoint. First, I had a refreshing glass of Peach Sangria. Very light and delicious. For dinner, I had a build your own burger with sautéed mushrooms and jack cheese....More
