Gordon Ramsay BurGR (a revisit)

June 3rd, 2013 by Erik Chudy

beautiful burgerI have so many burgers on my to-do list, but after the fallout of my tournament I realize there’s a lot of places I didn’t completely enjoy the first time that may need a revisit due to overwhelming popularity. One such place is Gordon Ramsay BurGR, which has had almost four times as many page views than any other review I’ve done, and brings in dozens of visitors a day through search engines. Clearly the tourists or some demographic out there is very keen on Mr. Ramsay’s burgers more so than any other place in town. I thought the burger was definitely decent my first time, but iffy service and horrible fries didn’t leave me completely satisfied so I headed back recently to see if they’ve gotten their act together and if it really lives up to all the hype. continue reading »

View Wine Bar

March 18th, 2013 by Erik Chudy

perfectionI will fully admit that I don’t hide my hatred for over-hyped restaurants on the strip or failed areas of town like Tivoli Village, so it was with great hesitation that I took a few recent suggestions to go try the burger at View Wine Bar. Many restaurants and stores have come and gone from this ghost town of a shopping area, and I question how long anything could survive there based on how few people are around each time I visit. Because no one is ever there I typically assume that this means there’s nothing worthy of perusing or devouring here, but after my most recent visit I couldn’t be more wrong. continue reading »

Boise Burger Adventure 2

January 14th, 2013 by Erik Chudy

Over the Christmas holiday I took another trip up to Boise for a week to visit some family; as with most of my trips to other cities I find myself tracking down the better-known burger joints. In a continuing effort to keep myself from getting too fat, I limited my burger intake to just two on this week long trip. Here’s my quick take on those meals. continue reading »

Rattlecan (CLOSED)

January 2nd, 2013 by Erik Chudy

BK?Ever since I first got word of Rattlecan on the Eater website many months ago I’ve been excited about it; not only did it look totally cool, but it was backed by Chef Sammy D who has already made a pretty great burger in town. A few weeks before it opened I was able to do a quick walkthrough with a Venetian employee which did nothing to calm my excitement either. Plus since it opened, I’ve had many friends and readers chime in with how good the burgers are. All this has built up to quite the hype, so when I finally ventured in there this past weekend I was expecting quite a bit. So how did it hold up to all the pressure? continue reading »

Bittercreek Alehouse/Red Feather Lounge

December 24th, 2012 by Erik Chudy

good looking friesFor my out of state readers or just those curious to read about my burger adventures outside of Vegas, I’m going to write a few articles about places I’ve been to in recent weeks. I don’t plan on making these reviews as long-winded or detailed as my typical reviews, I just want to give you folks an idea of what’s out there in other cities. I’ve eaten quite a few burgers in Boston over the past couple years, but I’ll save any write-ups there for Burger Boy and focus on Boise in this case. continue reading »

Palm Restaurant

September 25th, 2012 by Erik Chudy

lots of food hereOne of my biggest gripes lately has been regarding price; while I fully expect a burger in a strip location to cost upwards of $15, I find it very hard to pay up when there are amazing choices for under $5 in albeit locations of not the greatest ambiance. It is this reason that I got excited the other day while reading a little blurb on Eater Vegas about a burger deal at the Palm Restaurant in the Forum Shops at Caesar’s Palace. The starting price was still almost twice the price of some stand out cheap meals I’ve had, but could this discount help out? continue reading »

The Dispensary Lounge

May 18th, 2012 by Erik Chudy

lookin good!My readership is growing regularly, and along with that comes my list of recommended burgers, which I believe is up to about 30 right now. A few of them have been on the list far too long, but a new comment posted to my site the other day got me excited enough about one to try it a day later. Dispensary Lounge sounds like an awful place, and by the looks of the pictures on Yelp it didn’t seem much better. I typically don’t trust Yelp reviews all that much either, but the comments on there made it sound a lot like Henry’s which I’m a big fan of, so I was quite motivated. Could a $3.95 burger at a local dive bar actually be any good? continue reading »
