Type: Burger joint
I've been going to Nogales Burgers since I was in Junior High. After school, I'd walk here with my friends and get either a) $1 fries, b) 2 for 1 hamburgers (if it was Monday or Tuesday), or 3) chili cheese fries. The hamburgers were about $2 back in the day. I don't know how much they are now. Once high school and a driver's license came along, I kind of stopped going there. We would go to far away places to eat (3 miles or so) just cuz we could.
I've been to a few burger joints just like Nogales Burgers and I think they're all pretty much the same. Yeah, they have a few unique dishes and things the locals always order, but for the most part, it's hard to tell them apart. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, because I'll still go to Nogales Burgers now and then. Plus, if you've been going there for a while, you might run into old friends and catch up. It's a good, cheap place to eat. I'm sure everybody pretty much has a Nogales Burgers kind of joint near them.
Anyways, I went here for breakfast. I got the huevos rancheros as always, and my girlfriend got the breakfast burrito. I liked my meal and so did my girlfriend. We spent about $10 for a nice, big, greasy meal-- and I'll do it again.
