Rx Boiler Room

September 18th, 2013 by Erik Chudy

calm before the stormThis is one of those meals that was so disastrous that I had to wait several days to write the review with a cool head. Plus, I’m sure the events below are identifiable enough for the wait staff to remember exactly who we were. Whatever, this is what I do. I recently had a surprisingly excellent burger at RM Seafood, so I was really excited to head upstairs and try the new one on the menu at Rx Boiler Room. But as you can see from my comments this didn’t go so well, and the downstairs restaurant is nothing like the upstairs one. I’m sure this post will follow with complaints, and I can’t wait to receive them! continue reading »

RM Seafood

August 21st, 2013 by Erik Chudy

pickles!One of my long time favorites in town, Burger Bar, has seriously gone downhill in recent visits. This drop in quality has left Mandalay Bay with an opening for someone to step in with a great burger. Citizen’s recently failed to do so, but some recent messages from a few readers let me to an unassuming location: RM Seafood. Going into a seafood restaurant to try a burger seems blasphemous, but I’m around for one task regardless of the type of venue. I’ve also gotten a tip that the newly opened Rx Boiler Room has a great burger, but that will have to be tackled soon on another trip. continue reading »

Citizens Kitchen and Bar

argh waffle fries!Other than a small handful of places I probably need to try, I feel like I’ve probably experienced most of the decent burgers in town at this point and am starting to fish for restaurants that serve an ok burger. Such is the case with Citizens Kitchen & Bar that recently opened in Mandalay Bay. No one has suggested I try their burger, but it’s a venue that pushes their comfort food, and what speaks more to that than a burger? Plus, with the rapidly declining quality of Burger Bar, Mandalay is in desperate need of a good burger. So could this be it? continue reading »

Burger Bar

November 20th, 2011 by Erik Chudy

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. Still, given the opportunity a few days ago to stop in there for lunch I didn’t hesitate. Besides, I didn’t have any quality pictures to post until that point.  Because I’ve been here so many times I was almost nervous that I would give this restaurant preferential treatment, but since I’ve been taking a way more analytical approach to my burgers lately I found that Burger Bar wasn’t quite the perfection I remembered it.  But it was still close. continue reading »
