Blake's Lotaburger

Public Food

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).  Now, over 60 years later (ugh, am i really THAT old?!  don't remind me!), LOTA Burgers (& it's smaller twin, the ITSA Burger) are cooked-to-order using ONLY Premium Angus Beef at 80 Blake's locations across New Mexico, Texas & Arizona.
