Umami Burger

October 28th, 2016 by Benjamin Billings

In 2012 GQ announced that Umami Burger made the burger of the year. Unfortunately for us the closest location was in L.A. All of that change when the SLS arrived on the north end of the strip, bringing with it the much heralded Umami Burger. What is all the buzz about? Here is what I found. Continue Reading »

Carson Kitchen

September 15th, 2016 by Erik Chudy

burger!Greetings loyal readers! It’s been quite some time since I’ve personally written a burger review, but I’m back to tease you with a post or two for your (hopeful) enjoyment. First up is Carson Kitchen; a newer addition to our fair city located in the Fremont Street area of town. They feature an odd website, some fun small plates and of course a burger. Many friends have mentioned this burger to me in recent months, so I had high expectations. Did it deliver? Continue Reading »

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.

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 »
