Hans im Glück Burgergrill (Munich, Germany)

September 1st, 2014 by Erik Chudy

Munich (206)While eating a fantastic burger in Munich, the nice guy at our table told us about another very worthy burger in town at a place called Hans im Glück Burgergrill. He had already confirmed that the great burger we were eating was truly one of the best in town, so we took his advice and risked missing out on some great German food to see if we could find a second great burger in Munich. After all, a culture so focused on their meats and beers should surely be able to handle burgers across the board, right? continue reading »

Hamburguesería Kiosko (Barcelona, Spain)

June 24th, 2014 by Erik Chudy

Barcelona (27)Well hello strangers, sorry it’s been so long! I just got back from a three month tour across much of Europe, and I have quite a few burgers to report on! Initially I wasn’t quite sure of how many burgers we would actually be able to eat while surrounded by so much other great food, but after a while we got a craving for a good old burger and my old ways took over. The first European burger comes to you from a restaurant called Hamburguesería Kiosko located in Barcelona. After a bit of research one afternoon, I quickly determined that Kiosko was one of the favorites around town so we decided to make that our sample of what Barcelona had to offer for the burger scene. We had already seen burgers on the menus of several tapas restaurants throughout Madrid and Sevilla, so we were well aware that Spain was slowly embracing the burger scene, but the couple I tried weren’t even worth mentioning. Could Barcelona handle them better? 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 »

10 Barrel Brewing Company (Boise, ID)

May 4th, 2014 by Erik Chudy

IMG_9583Hi there! Sorry for the lack of posts, I’ve been doing quite a bit of traveling lately. This is the start of my reviews from the road; in case you didn’t read my last post I determined that I had sampled a majority of what Vegas had to offer so I’m touring around the US and also many parts of Europe to see what other cities can do to the beloved burger. There have been a few openings in Vegas I need to review soon, but for now you’re going to get an idea of what else is out there. continue reading »

Ketchup Premium Burger Bar

January 28th, 2014 by Erik Chudy

looks dull!I have a handful of potentially decent places on my to-do list right now, but it’s starting to get very thin as I’ve tackled most of the noteworthy restaurants around town at this point. Even with a few new joints opening in the next couple months, we’ve had several long standing burger restaurants close down lately and the trend seems to be slightly fading to pizza and other things. That didn’t stop Planet Hollywood from opening up a new one though, a quietly announced spot called Ketchup Premium Burger Bar. Luckily the space is located right at the entry from the parking garage, saving you from having to walk through their dreaded mall. Still, is it even worth a trip to this tourist trap property? continue reading »

Hennessey’s Tavern

January 8th, 2014 by Erik Chudy

looks okThis week I’m going to skip covering some of the newly-opened restaurants in town to deal with another place that boldly advertises its burger as “voted best burger in Las Vegas” on a colorful banner right on the corner of Fremont Street and Las Vegas Blvd. I’m definitely not aware of everything going on in town burger-wise, but by being the self-titled ‘burger guy’ for Vegas I’m fairly aware of most contests that would elect such a title. So when my coworker pointed out one day that Hennessey’s Tavern had such a banner on their patio, I just had to look into this. I’ve had a couple folks suggest their burgers over the years, but it just hasn’t been a priority with so many more popular and generally accepted places to try. But being a glutton for punishment and fulfilling my self-induced duties, I headed over to see if they could offer a contender for the best burger in town. continue reading »

Roxy’s Diner

July 9th, 2013 by Erik Chudy

looks okBusy with work and summer trips, my opportunities to knock off burgers on my to-do list have been limited lately, hence the infrequent posts. And because of this I have been forced to do some less than ideal locations based on proximity to my office and random opportunities. This leads us directly to our next adventure at Roxy’s Diner inside the Stratosphere; a property certainly not known for fine dining by any locals or pretty much anyone that’s interested in good food despite one of the Yelp ‘reviews’ claiming that the Stratosphere has “the best food options on the strip”. Laughable indeed, just as much as this meal.  continue reading »
