Although the building is painted bright red, many visitors traveling Highway 95 blow through Mina, unaware that one of the best burgers in the state can be found in the heart of downtown. Located about 30 minutes south of Hawthorne, Socorro’s proprietor herself - known as Mama Socorro - will prepare one of the freshest, most savory burgers you’ve ever wrapped your lips around, making this your new ‘go to’ food stop when traveling from Reno to Vegas.
What they’ve got going here is simple yet flawless: fresh, quality homemade dishes prepared by a Nevada original to boot. One thing you won’t find here is ‘Fast Food’…Mama Socorro takes her time to ensure each meal is prepared right. Trust us, you wont regret the few extra minutes it takes for her to carefully prepare your meal, it’s worth every second.
Rated a five-star burger joint on Yelp, patrons are not afraid to make bold statements like, “Best burger I’ve ever had,” or “Incredible food, awesome service,” or even “Exceeded our expectations…everything you want from a west coast fresh burger joint.” The proof is in the pudding, this place is a diamond in the rough and should be at the very top of every burger aficionado's list.

TRAVELNEVADA PRO TIP
A permanent ‘Open’ sign is posted out front, so be aware of Socorro’s hours [they’re only closed on Wednesdays.] Even when it is open, it doesn’t always look open—not many people know about this gem of a dining experience and assume that it’s closed, but now you know better! [Oh, and order the chocolate malt and onion rings…you’ll be glad you did.]
