Lucille’s Smokehouse BBQ

June 21st, 2012 by Erik Chudy

big burgerThe other day I had a craving for a good pulled pork sandwich, which isn’t necessarily a good thing considering there aren’t many options in town. Luckily I work near Lucille’s Smokehouse BBQ which satisfied my craving last time so I headed there for lunch. But while sitting at the bar I decided that I needed to write a burger review this week and I’ve had the same pulled pork sandwich the last 3 times I’ve been there, so I caved and did what I always do: ordered a burger. I figured it couldn’t be all that bad, I mean, they should know a thing or two about meat right? continue reading »

American Burger Works (ABX) (CLOSED)

June 14th, 2012 by Erik Chudy

boring!I tend to kill the surprise and hesitate to write any sort of lengthy review when I eat a burger that sucks, and this is probably going to be no exception. Finding myself on the south end of the strip with an hour to kill in between meetings the other day, I went to my phone to check for anything nearby that might be new and different. Sadly the only thing close by was American Burger Works at the lovely Excalibur, as I had been to pretty much everything else directly around me. No cliffhanger here, but read on if you want to know why it sucked so badly. continue reading »

Steiner’s Pub

there's a surprise hiding hereSo I still don’t get this whole “Nevada style pub” crap and I’ve been here for over 8 years now, but if someone claims that one of said pubs has a great burger, I’m always up for the challenge. These pubs seem like every other generic, chain-looking venue that I’ve seen in every other state I’ve been to so I don’t know what makes them “Nevada styled” but whatever. Anyway, today’s pub in question is Steiner’s, not really a spot that was on my radar for any reason until someone recently suggested it. And I must say, once again I was a bit surprised. continue reading »

DW Bistro

June 6th, 2012 by Erik Chudy

get ready for it!DW Bistro is one of my favorite non-burger joints in town; I’ve never had a bad meal there and love everything about the place. There are so many great things to try each time between the regular items and the specials that the burger near the bottom of the menu has never crossed my mind. A friend recently tried it and has been raving ever since, so it was during a recent visit with some friends that I caved and decided to give it a try. Did mixing my burger business with some of my favorite local eats work out ok? continue reading »
