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 »

Honey Salt (a revisit)

two burgers!I think there are many overrated restaurants throughout the valley, especially on the Strip. Several of the off-Strip locations that have opened in the past year have been getting lots of attention from the reviewers in town, some of which I may have been unimpressed by on my first visit. A perfect example is Honey Salt in Summerlin; I went a few weeks after opening and wasn’t thrilled with the burger or much else that we ordered. But the constant comments around town from other writers and friends has started to make me think otherwise, so when an opportunity arose for me to come back for another visit I jumped on it. Armed with the knowledge of what I’m really supposed to order off their menu this time, as well as the fact they knew I was coming all meant this should be much better than my first time. Right? 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 »
