Claim Jumper

November 13th, 2017 by Jason Fishman

I was at Happy Hour at Claim Jumper in Henderson, and saw that they had the Widowmaker Burger on the Happy Hour menu. I ordered it medium-rare, and it came out and my first impression was that THIS THING WAS HUGE – I was in disbelief as to just how big it was. A thick patty (half pound) slathered in 2 thick slices of cheddar cheese with a few strips of thick cut bacon, 3 huge onion rings, avocado, and the standard lettuce tomato pickles and deliciously spiced buttermilk (I think) shoestring fries. continue reading »

Emerald Island Casino Grill

October 31st, 2017 by Jason Fishman

This little hole in the wall casino, Emerald Island, in Downtown Henderson, right off of Water Street has a 24 hour diner with surprisingly nice decor, and tons of food specials. Their late night (11pm-6am) specials include a half-pound double cheeseburger. Being a burger connoisseur, I thought I should try their special… and at 6.49 including fries and a drink, you can’t beat the price (8.99 when it is not the middle of the night). continue reading »

The Great Greek

May 20th, 2016 by Benjamin Billings

The Las Vegas area has Greek places scattered all over, and the quality of these places is equally all over the map.  I found an odd one in Henderson that has a burger. So often times places that throw a burger onto the menu should have saved us all the trouble and left it off. This coupled with the “gonzo” nature of this offering made me dubious. Should you make the drive to Henderson for it?  Let’s take a look.

Hi Scores Bar-Arcade

February 5th, 2013 by Erik Chudy

crazy displayTrying to take care of a few final Henderson restaurant reviews before I moved my office completely away from the area, I recently headed over to the Hi Scores Bar-Arcade to grab a burger and check out the scene. I have a friend that is a regular there, and speaks very highly of the staff, the space and their food so I figured it would be good lunch. Can going to a video game-based bar for lunch be a good idea? continue reading »

Windy City Beefs N Pizza

January 21st, 2013 by Erik Chudy

I hate baskets!Even though my writing isn’t necessarily perfect, I’m here to give you a grammar lesson in addition to my opinion this week. After some burger plans fell through late last week, I scrambled to find a place to review with some very short notice and little time, and headed over to the apparently grammar-challenging Windy City Beefs ‘N Pizza restaurant. People have a hard enough time determining when to place an apostrophe in a pluralized or possessive word, this one promised to bring me several iterations. In addition to presenting me with plenty of silly things to complain about, did it deliver a decent burger? continue reading »

Freddy’s Steakburgers

August 10th, 2012 by Erik Chudy

looks wimpyI don’t typically eat at or review fast food chains, but when I discover one that I haven’t heard of I’m often intrigued to try it. Such was the case with Original Tommy’s Hamburgers last year, and that didn’t go well. Freddy’s Steakburgers recently opened near my office; it’s a chain I’ve never been to but since there aren’t any other locations in town I figured I’d check it out and report for everyone. Did it work out any better than Tommy’s? continue reading »
