Broadway Burger Bar and Grill

February 28th, 2012 by Erik Chudy

big bun!Keeping with the theme of eating at burger joints I’ve never heard of for a reason, I recently stumbled upon Broadway Burger Bar and Grill while at the New York New York Hotel & Casino for work. I’m always excited when I come across a place that’s stayed under my radar, especially in one of the casinos right on the strip. Sadly, this one has never been mentioned to me for a reason. continue reading »

Heart Attack Grill

January 26th, 2012 by Erik Chudy

I think I’ve had more people ask me if I’ve been to the Heart Attack Grill than any other place recently, I’m not sure if it’s because the premise is so ridiculous or it’s just that high of a profile compared to other locations in town lately. Fremont Street is one of my favorite places in Vegas, and the silly theme aside, if there was a good burger for me to eat there it just became that much better. Well there already is, but I could use another. I’ve been slightly avoiding the place both because of my diet I’m trying to maintain, but more importantly because they make you wear a hospital gown when you go in. So are the insanely high calories and embarrassing outfits worth it? continue reading »

Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar

January 22nd, 2012 by Erik Chudy

damn goodI recently had the pleasure of going out for a burger with a fellow food blogger who turned me onto several great new locations for burgers and some other good food in town. He suggested we meet up at an off-the-strip location that wasn’t anywhere on my radar, and although he’s a much more established writer than yours truly, I really wasn’t sure if I could trust his judgment as I’ve been steered in the wrong path quite often in this town. The restaurant was Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar, and luckily so far his recommendations are 1 for 1. continue reading »

Motz’s Burgers

December 18th, 2011 by Erik Chudy

awesome buildingSo I just spent a few days in Detroit, and while I typically try to line up several meals when I go to a new city, I knew that I would be very busy with work and somewhat at the mercy of my coworkers. I kind of poked around to ask a few people online as well as a few coworkers in Detroit, and even got a few suggestions but didn’t really get to research them ahead of time. My coworker in Vegas sent me a link to a total dive place called Motz’s Burgers a week before we left and even printed a map to it, but still didn’t really plan on going there at any point. Just as predicted the trip was jam packed and extremely busy, but I did manage to squeeze out one amazing burger for breakfast on the way to the airport my last morning, and that place happened to be the one he printed. continue reading »

Bradley Ogden (CLOSED)

September 6th, 2011 by Erik Chudy

If someone told me I was going to try a $19 burger that Alan Richman of GQ Magazine said was the “best burger I ate this year”, I would be pretty damn excited. And I was, until I ate it. How can a burger that costs $19 that is located in a multi-award winning restaurant suck? Bradley Ogden’s restaurant showed me how. continue reading »
