The Most Important Burger Poll Ever

March 11th, 2015 by Erik Chudy

Hello folks! Sorry for the total lack of Vegas-related burger posts in the past many months, I promise many new reviews are on the horizon. I have easily a dozen important places on my to-do list, many of which I’m sure you’d like to read about so they will be posted ASAP. In the meantime, I thought I would take a moment and pose a question to everyone out there, one of the most important burger-related questions ever: is a burger a type of sandwich or is it its own entity? If you know me well, you know my answer but I will not provide it at this point so my wife can’t cry foul for me swaying anyone. So without further ado, your poll: 

Important Question
Is a burger a type of sandwich or is it its own entity?

Dish {fine burger bistro} (Prague, Czech Republic)

October 1st, 2014 by Erik Chudy

Prague_a (78)My European burger adventures were often like skating on thin ice; I knew my wife liked burgers almost as much as me, but with so much other good food around it was sometimes difficult to work a burger meal into our city visits. Any time we had a less-than-mediocre burger I knew the tides were slowly turning towards fewer burgers, but when my birthday happened in Prague she opted to find a burger dinner for me despite our previous failure a few days prior. She found Dish {fine burger bistro} in her search and that’s just where we ended up. I hadn’t seen much about it during my research, so I really didn’t know what to expect coming into it, but I’m so glad we went. Continue Reading »

Restaurace Jáma (Prague, Czech Republic)

September 17th, 2014 by Erik Chudy

Prague (176)After having a fairly successful couple of burgers in Munich, we thought we would test our luck again in Prague. I had read about a few decent burgers in the city, and our host confirmed that sentiment when we arrived with a list of a few burger restaurants to try. Plus, Prague is quite the beer city so they must have good burgers to accompany their drinks. The first one on his list was a place called Restaurace Jáma, which showed up on a few of my searches as well so we gave it a shot. Continue Reading »

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?

Burger House (Munich, Germany)

August 13th, 2014 by Erik Chudy

Munich_a (78)So after last week’s disaster, let’s get back to business with another burger review. I’m still only halfway through my European trip and sampling of what else is out there in the world. After making it through over three weeks in Spain with only one slider worthy of a visit, and a solid month in Italy with no good burgers to speak of, we headed into Germany where surely a good burger could be found. I again resorted to some basic online searching to see what burger joints got the most attention to see if there was anything worth our time. The consensus seemed to be that Burger House was of the top joints in Munich, so that’s where we headed one afternoon instead of our go-to biergarten. Hopefully they would present me with the first really solid burger I could report on?

The 2014 VBB Burger Tournament Conclusion

August 6th, 2014 by Erik Chudy

So as you probably know I ended the tournament early last night due to things getting a bit out of hand with many of the voters; I really didn’t want to do that, but this was supposed to be a lighthearted contest and it turned into something ugly. On top of some personal attacks, I’ve also gotten many comments from people claiming I rigged the numbers, that I have unfair advertising on my site, that I didn’t set up the contest properly, you name it. No matter how I set this up or what restaurants I selected someone is going to have a problem with it and they somehow find it necessary to express this opinion to me. Guess what, I don’t care how you would do this differently! If you have a problem with what burgers I like or how I run my contest, go create your own burger blog and contest. For the record, I have never made a dollar off of this website, I have zero banner ads; it is done strictly because of my love of burgers. This tournament was created to promote as many restaurants in town that I could; last year’s finalists had a surge in burger sales so I thought it would be fun to do again. Hopefully this year’s contest provided similar results, gave people awareness of new restaurants, or at least provided some sort of positivity somewhere.

In the meantime, I don’t want to hear about how you would have ended the contest, or what should be done now. It’s over; we’re congratulating the four finalists along with all the other participants that provide great burgers in the Las Vegas area. So go out for lunch or dinner today and eat a burger at DW Bistro, The Dillinger, Pizza Rock or Steiner’s Pub. Or even better, someone can organize a burger crawl and tackle all four in a row! In the meantime, I will be worrying about what burger I’m going to eat next.
