It might just be a miracle that you can still sit down in a place like El Milagro Restaurant and enjoy a green chile cheeseburger of this caliber for $6.95—including home fries. We know it's cliché, but we almost didn't want to tell you about this deal. The Southside eatery is located in the shopping center that also houses the Regal Stadium 14 movie theater, where mother and son duo Anthony and Frances Armijo have been at it for more than a decade. Its menu is practically bigger than the dining room and includes every New Mexican favorite you're looking for. Fast service means you won't miss your show, or you can get back to your day without too much fuss. For something different, we recommend the spicy cream of potato soup, made exciting with toppings of real bacon and a hot twist of chopped green chile, and served with a few fresh fried tortilla wedges ($4.25 cup). It's one of six soups on the menu, just to show off how much there really is to choose from. If you've taken a friend or two, share a sopaipilla sundae for dessert. They come in caramel cinnamon with whipped cream and strawberry with more strawberry ($6.50).
