Max Brenner

big plate!Everyone seems to think they know it all when it comes to their favorite burger in town, myself included, and this problem doubles when that place also happens to be where they work. People have a certain pride in their workplace if they love it there, and will defend it to the death. I had a friend who worked at Max Brenner in the Forum Shops who always swore they had one of the best burgers she’s ever eaten, which I would normally accept if this place wasn’t known mostly for their chocolate.

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?

Bradley Ogden (CLOSED)

If someone told me I was going to try a $19 burger that Alan Richman of GQ Magazine said was the “best burger I ate this year”, I would be pretty damn excited. And I was, until I ate it. How can a burger that costs $19 that is located in a multi-award winning restaurant suck? Bradley Ogden’s restaurant showed me how. continue reading »
