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.

Burger Bistro

March 25th, 2013 by Erik Chudy

looks okIt seems as though every casino has to have a feature burger joint now, whether it’s tied to a celebrity chef or not. Gordon Ramsay recently opened one of the more popular ones at Planet Hollywood, long after other chefs opened restaurants at Mandalay Bay, The Mirage, Harrah’s, you name it. Some actually hold up fairly well and provide you with some pre-designed burgers to choose from, while others take the lazy do-it-yourself route, such as in the case of my latest meal at Burger Bistro in the LVH. Although burgers are a fairly easy thing to make, it’s even easier for these Vegas properties to throw together a half assed restaurant like this that sell mediocre burgers at insane prices and it’s really starting to piss me off. I’m not going to hide my anger and disappointment anywhere in this article; Burger Bistro’s approach to providing us with another burger joint is just insulting to the scene in town and I want the execs at LVH to know it. continue reading »

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 »

First Food & Bar (CLOSED)

March 4th, 2012 by Erik Chudy

nice presentationI have stumbled upon a serious problem; what happens when you get served an amazing burger but the fries just totally suck? Yes my life is so difficult… but seriously, how big of an influence do the fries have in the overall judgment of a burger meal? In the case of the burger I ate at First Food & Bar, I’m having this exact problem. continue reading »

Cheeseburger Las Vegas

February 28th, 2012 by Erik Chudy

is this a cafeteria?Based on a very adamant recommendation by a colleague in the industry, I caved and made my way over to Cheeseburger Las Vegas while at Planet Hollywood for work. This guy has been reading my reviews and agrees with a lot of what I have to say, so I was curious about how this would turn out. Sadly, not so great. continue reading »
