I am very excited that fall is almost here, and that also means the return of green chilies as well as Good Times Burgers and Frozen Custard’s Hatch Valley Green Chile Menu. I am embarrassed to admit that my husband and I have lived here for almost 10 years, but I had not tried any food with green chilies which Coloradans boast about so proudly. Thus we a representative reached out and asked me if I was willing to try an item off of their Green Chile Menu for a blog post, I was more than happy to oblige. We decided to visit the location in Westminster, CO off of 92nd and Wadsworth. We had been here quite a few times, and enjoy sitting outside on their patio when it isn’t too hot or too cold.
When we first arrived, the drive-thru was pretty busy, but there was only one person in front of us at the window. We were greeted by their manager Eric. He was very nice and explained a little bit about the Hatch Valley Green Chile Menu. We had a choice of the Green Chile Chicken Torta, the Green Chile Burger Torta, or the Green Chile Burger Slider. He also suggested that we try the Green Chile Fries which they do have all year round.
Before we decided, he happily explained that the Green Chile Burger Torta & Green Chile Chicken Torta features an all-natural beef patty or breaded all-natural chicken topped with Hatch Valley Green Chile Strip, red onion, lettuce, tomato, pepper jack cheese and Hatch Valley Green Chile Chutney on locally made focaccia bread. The Green Chile Burger Slider is an all-natural slider patty. It is topped with Hatch Valley Green Chile Chutney and American Cheese on a slider bun. We decided to mix it up a little bit and got the Green Chile Burger, the Green Chile Fries. We also got a 3 piece of chicken tenders just for fun.
Our food came pretty fast and we decided to sit outside and enjoy our food as well as the warm weather. Of course, I took a few pictures, but had to try the fries right away. I was extremely impressed with the taste of the green chile. It had a nice little zing, but not so hot that all you tasted was heat. Happily I can say, their green chile seems to have a nice balance. I do have to say one thing about the fries before I move on. As good as their green chile is, I felt they were a little too smothered. I know that this is a personal preference, but wanted to share my opinion. Next time I get the chile fries, I will ask them to go light on the sauce. After a few more pictures, we set down and dug into our food.
I have to say the burger was warm, delicious, and very messy, lol. Make sure you have plenty of napkins when you eat one of these huge burgers. It is definitely not a burger I would want to eat in a car while driving. I am a huge fan of bread and I loved the softness of the focaccia bread. The burger itself was juicy and cooked well, which is the way I like it. The mixture of the pepper jack cheese and the green chile made for a great combo. It was an extremely tasty burger, which I will suggest to my friends here in Colorado, as well as guests that come in to visit from California. Here is a link to the Good Times Burgers and Frozen Custard site so you can check out the Hatch Valley Green Chile menu yourself and then go try one!
