• Limited Time Only Item Starts Aug 15

Blake’s Lotaburger is adding some hot stuff to its menu.

The new item, Buffalo Chicken Boat, features  boneless chicken pieces that are lightly breaded, tossed in a spicy buffalo sauce, drizzled with ranch dressing and served on top of a bed of natural fries.

Sounds pretty good, but amounts to a test run. Consider the Buffalo Chicken Boat a beta.

“We believe it will be very popular, but we will remove it from our menu in the fall to make room for other exciting new menu items.” said Lotaburger spokesperson Trisha Terraciano-Spence. “We know New Mexicans love spicy foods so we created a menu item that would satisfy that craving.

In the announcement of the new menu item, Brian Rule, President of Blake’s Lotaburger, described the sandwich as “spicy and savory.”

The Buffalo Chicken Boat comes in a 6-piece, 9-piece or 12-piece size.  The Buffalo Chicken Boat is available in all Blake’s Lotaburger restaurants for a limited time.

Blakes has two restaurants in Rio Rancho.


Based in Albuquerque, Blake’s operates 74 locations in the Southwestern United States, primarily in New Mexico, as well as Tucson, Arizona and El Paso, Texas. Blake’s Lotaburger was founded in 1952 and is credited with popularizing the famous New Mexico Green Chile Cheeseburger.
