SinCity Burgers (CLOSED)

March 27th, 2012 by Erik Chudy

might be ok?I still get excited when I come across a new place that no one has told me about in the hopes that I’ve discovered some gem in the city. But I guess my rule that if no one mentions a place it’s probably for a good reason, or it’s at least located in a part of town that no one would ever find it.

All-American Bar & Grille

big plateAfter living in Vegas for over 8 years now I’ve eaten quite a few burgers all over town, but since starting this blog I’ve had to look at many of them in a whole new light.

So does this all add up to a good burger? Yes it does. continue reading »

The latest comes from one of the newest additions to the Venetian; a little place called Public House. Unlike some of the other places that have invited me into their restaurants lately, these guys instantly claimed a fantastic burger and wanted me to put it to the test. This usually puts a lot of pressure on me because I hate telling someone their food sucks after they’ve invited me in to try it, but luckily this one held up pretty well. continue reading »

First Food & Bar (CLOSED)

nice presentationI have stumbled upon a serious problem; what happens when you get served an amazing burger but the fries just totally suck? Yes my life is so difficult… but seriously, how big of an influence do the fries have in the overall judgment of a burger meal? In the case of the burger I ate at First Food & Bar, I’m having this exact problem. continue reading »
