The author should have dug a little deeper and he would have really been impressed.
Blakes uses all New Mexico ingredients. At one point everything that went into a sale except the paper products were made here in New Mexico. I know that they could not get the ketsup they needed here in New Mexico but they could get the ingredients for ketsup, so they began making their own.
There are dozens of New Mexico farmers, ranchers, and wholesalers that rely on Blake's for their business. And a hell of a lot of young New Mexicans worked at Blakes in the past 35 years.
Supporting local business is what our future needs to be about. Blakes has always been there. I love their burgers and I like their philosophy. A great spot to grab a good burger.
