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 »

Carson Kitchen

September 15th, 2016 by Erik Chudy

burger!Greetings loyal readers! It’s been quite some time since I’ve personally written a burger review, but I’m back to tease you with a post or two for your (hopeful) enjoyment. First up is Carson Kitchen; a newer addition to our fair city located in the Fremont Street area of town. They feature an odd website, some fun small plates and of course a burger. Many friends have mentioned this burger to me in recent months, so I had high expectations. Did it deliver? 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.

Café de La Pedrera (Barcelona, Spain)

July 7th, 2014 by Erik Chudy

Barcelona_a (631)So I’m well aware that in my last post I told you not to bother getting a burger while in Spain, but I have just one more to report on. As many of you know, Barcelona has quite a few buildings designed by famous architect Antoni Gaudí, 9 to be exact. On top of being a burger freak, I’m also a lover of great buildings so I spent much of my time in Barcelona visiting all of Gaudí’s buildings along with many other great ones. On our last evening in the city we visited Gaudí’s Casa Milà and dined in the Café de La Pedrera inside the building. I wasn’t expecting to eat another burger in this city, but when I saw a slider listed on the menu “inspired by Chef Joël Robuchon” I had to partake. Could I possibly eat a fantastic burger while sitting in one of my favorite architects’ buildings? continue reading »

Rick’s Press Room (Meridian, ID)

May 25th, 2014 by Erik Chudy

IMG_9606Continuing my series of traveling reviews, today’s comes from Idaho again by way of Rick’s Press Room. Rick’s is a restaurant once featured on Diner’s for whatever that’s worth, although that isn’t the reason I went. It’s located outside of the downtown Boise area in Meridian; it’s a bit out of the way so they have to offer something good for Guy to venture there, right? continue reading »
