LBS Burger Joint (CLOSED)

November 26th, 2011 by Erik Chudy

LBS ClassicTrying to knock off as many requests from readers as I can, I recently ventured to Red Rock to check out LBS; who touts themselves as “the best burger in Las Vegas.” I’ve heard many positive comments about this burger, and I was quite nervous coming into it since it was in a casino location. With the opportunity for them to be lazy and overpriced, they didn’t disappoint, but some very important questions arose. continue reading »

Rachel’s Kitchen

doesn't look horribleI have this great fantasy that I’m going to stumble not knowing into some great burger discovery, so every once in a while I go against my intuition and order a burger at a place that’s really not known for them. Such is the case with my recent trip to Rachel’s Kitchen, and based on this experience I clearly shouldn’t bet on the upcoming super bowl. continue reading »

dig in!Unlike most of the places I review on this blog, Burger Bar is a place I can write a review on based strictly on memory.

eat me!I know I’ve been trying to avoid the touristy locations on the strip, but with all the meetings I have there it’s too convenient to duck into something nearby and get back to the office. This is exactly what happened when I ventured into Stripburger the other day, and I’m glad I did. I’m starting to get very skeptical of restaurants in general located on the strip due to the fact that they don’t really have to try and yet mass amounts of tourists will still flock to them, so I welcome the surprise. continue reading »

Slidin’ Thru HQ (CLOSED)

November 13th, 2011 by Erik Chudy

three is usually better than oneFood trucks have become a huge trend these days, but I’m not one to fight lines and hunt them down around town. I’d much rather go to a fixed location and order something whenever I want, which is why I had to take a trip to Slidin’ Thru HQ to see if the sliders in their restaurant are any better than the ones on their truck. Simple answer: nope. continue reading »
