Two New Mexico restaurants were selected among the 10 best burger joints in the nation, according to the reviews and opinions of millions of tourists.

Travel website TripAdvisor released the list on Tuesday.

Sparky's in Hatch, New Mexico, earned the third spot thanks to their tantalizing green chile cheeseburgers. A TripAdvisor reviewer said, "The Hatch Green Chiles – 'WOW' words cannot describe the mellow heat and great taste!"

Big D's Downtown Dive in Roswell was selected as the eighth best burger joint. TripAdvisor praised the restaurant's garden fresh ingredients. Customers especially loved creations like "The Tomahawk," which is topped with aged cheddar, red chile and avocado lime mayo.
