You’re gonna need it!  I mean, it’s been practically smothered in delicious…. Wait! Are we talking about the year 2020 or the most amazing Smothered Chili Cheeseburger in Blanding?

Smothered Chili Cheeseburger

Our Smothered Chili Cheeseburger is much more fun to talk about! Forget this last year’s chaos. Let’s discuss our most beloved mess at Patio.

Firstly, we start out with our burger patty; a whopping 1/3 of a pound of all-beef. Next, a nice thick slice of Cheddar Cheese drapes it’s melty goodness over the burger patty. Now comes the CHILI. If you have never tried our house chili on one of our other dishes, like our Loaded Chili Fries, you don’t know what you’re missing. Made every day from scratch it is a chili you will not forget. To top off this burger, add a sliced green chili to bring up the heat just enough to have your taste buds dancing the cha-cha-cha long after you’re finished. Yum.

Well, my mouth is watering. Is yours? Come join us today and snag your own Smothered Chili Cheeseburger in Blanding! You won’t be disappointed. It is every bit as tasty as described.

“The Big B” Burger: how and why it was created.

Welcome to our blog! We have created this space for us to share fun memories, how menu items came to be, fun places to visit in San Juan County, and many other things! So stay tuned as we have tons more to share! 

In this post we are excited to talk about the iconic “Big B” Burger that has made a lasting impression on many around the globe and is a staple menu item at Patio Diner.

It all started when the previous owners, Brian and Suzie Bayles, bought Patio. In the months leading up to their grand opening, Brian and his Sysco food representative, and long time friend, Kim Acton would get together and mess around with menu ideas. During one of those conversations, they decided that Patio needed to have a specialty burger, one that was unique only to us. With a little more work (and we’re sure a lot more play) they came up with “The Big B” burger, and its secret specialty sauce. 

The name of “The Big B” came from Kim, who often called Brian “Bubba” or sometimes just “B”. Together, they decided on “The Big B”, The Brian Bayles Burger! 

After over decade, we are so happy to continue their legacy. The Big B is a 1/2 pound burger, served with fresh cut veggies, cheddar cheese, and our secret Patio Big B sauce. Come enjoy a freshly made Big B today! We can’t wait for another decade, and beyond, of serving this special burger, and many other delicious food items!
