BLT Burger (a revisit)

May 29th, 2012 by Erik Chudy

they start so innocentI’ve gone for repeat burger visits in the past year or so of this blog’s existence, but those have all been due to relying on a tried and true favorite. This is an instance of me returning to a place I absolutely hated in the hopes that they could turn things around for me. The first time I went to BLT Burger it was so awful that it made me angry; I didn’t use any pictures and barely posted two paragraphs’ worth of information. I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews since that initial visit so I figured I’d go back and see if they were just having an off day, or maybe I was? continue reading »

BLT Burger

July 3rd, 2011 by Erik Chudy

This meal was so bad I was actually angry during it, and it makes me even madder that I have to give it a proper review and waste space on my website. I didn’t get a decent picture of the burger, but it doesn’t matter. The feature burger restaurant for the MGM Mirage has only a couple pre-designed burgers on their menu, otherwise they leave it to the diner to create their own, which is a bit uninspired. This is a gripe you will start seeing more and more from me. If you are some famous chef and you’re tying your name to the feature burger joint of the ‘INSERT CASINO NAME’ you should take the time to design a few creative burgers. This is what you do.

The meat was completely lacking flavor, not cooked to order, and just not what it should be.  The first thing that pisses me off about a burger is if you can’t serve it medium-rare when I order it that way. You’re a burger joint, if you can’t handle that then you might as well give up now. The bun wasn’t great, very dry and typical. The toppings weren’t good either, 3 for 3 so far! The fries had a foul taste to them, like the oil they were cooked in was a few days too old. $50 for two people at this low of a quality led this to be one of the worst I’ve had yet.

Overall score: 68
