Create (CLOSED)

October 30th, 2011 by Erik Chudy

looks normal...I have been to Create a couple times in the past year or two, but not since I started the blog so I was long overdue for a return trip and full analysis. I remember liking it well enough in the past, so I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve had a string of not-so-good burgers lately but I left this most recent meal extremely happy. I know you’re not used to hearing these words lately around here, so please read on. continue reading »

Original Tommy’s Hamburgers

October 29th, 2011 by Erik Chudy

boring!Due to some recent unfortunate dining events, the VBB will no longer be taking recommendations from friends when it relates to large chains of burger joints. This very much refers to yesterday’s meal I had at Tommy’s, which was less than ideal and left my stomach a bit unhappy. There’s clearly no suspense in this review but I’ll go ahead and give you my full rundown anyway. continue reading »

PJ Clarke’s (CLOSED)

October 23rd, 2011 by Erik Chudy

can you find my onion?I have a list of ‘burgers to try’ in the notes section of my phone that has been slowly growing, I have no idea where most of them came from. Many are recommendations from readers, while some are from articles in local papers touting the ‘best unknown burger’ or something like that.  PJ Clarke’s is one such place. I didn’t remember where the suggestion came from walking in, but our waitress reminded us that the Las Vegas Weekly had claimed theirs the ‘best burger in Las Vegas.’  Do I agree?

Farmer Boys

October 9th, 2011 by Erik Chudy

too much lettuce!Burger Boy put it best, if a place claims to be the ‘World’s Greatest’ it is typically a recipe for disaster. That’s about what I expected as I walked in to Farmer Boys and took a quick look around their restaurant. Cheesy décor, white trash…have I just arrived in NASCAR heaven? I must say though, this ended up being a little better than I thought. continue reading »

Five Guys Burgers and Fries

October 3rd, 2011 by Erik Chudy

is that supposed to look good?Some places receive such ridiculous hype that they’re almost asking for a negative review before I even get there, and such is the case with Five Guys. I can’t even sugarcoat this review, or hold you in suspense about my opinion until the end, this place is completely overrated, overpriced, and not worth one ounce of hype. Now if you care to know more, I’ll tell you why. continue reading »

Bachi Burger revisited

October 1st, 2011 by Erik Chudy

Ronin burgerI don’t know if anyone could ever convince me to re-review a restaurant, my first impression is typically good enough for me, and should be for everyone else.  Even if you argue that I went to a location on an ‘off day’ I could really care less, if you are a professional and have opened a restaurant, there should be no such thing as an off day. I will however, go back to a place just for the pure enjoyment if it is good enough. Such is the case with Bachi Burger. I went many months ago, it’s been one of the best burgers I’ve had in Vegas to date and I’ve had many people ask to go there with me. I’ve been twice in the last two weeks, and I’m not sure if I’m glad I went back. continue reading »

Fukuburger

October 1st, 2011 by Erik Chudy

the Lucky BurgerThe Vegas ‘street meat’ scene has really taken off as of late, I’ve heard plenty buzz around the Fukuburger truck, Slidin’ Thru…  but how good can a burger be that is made in a dirty-ish, probably re-commissioned vehicle? In this case, actually not too bad. continue reading »
