Green energy: Jason Sheehan is right!

I was zooming down I-25 through New Mexico, trying to knock off the thousand miles from Denver to Tucson in a day, when I saw a billboard that made me hit the brakes: It was for the Owl Bar in San Antonio, just a wide spot in the road -- but home to the world's best green-chile cheeseburger, according to Jason Sheehan.

Sheehan hasn't steered me wrong on some of Denver's best green-chile cheeseburgers: at Steuben's and the Cherry Cricket. I also love the green-chile-covered cheeseburger at Jack-n-Grill.

But all thought of any other burger disappeared at the first taste of an Owl burger -- a thin, griddle-fried patty covered with oozing melted cheese, onions, pickles, lettuce, tomato and sense-searing green chiles.

For this cheeseburger, I'd gladly drive another thousand miles.
