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 »

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?

A Reason to Read Another Bachi Review

April 16th, 2014 by Erik Chudy

There have been only a small handful of restaurants that I actually granted a revisit for one reason or another, despite many requests following some negative reviews over the years. In some cases, like Honey Salt, my first visit was only weeks into their opening so I felt it was necessary after so many accolades for me to come back and see how they tweaked things to run more smoothly. Another well-deserved restaurant was Bachi Burger; my initial review was one of the first on this blog so I felt a better-documented revisit was in order after a while. Of all the places I’ve gone to for repeat meals, none have impressed me as much as Bachi so I feel it’s time for one more review. You’re probably asking yourself why you need to read yet another review about them, but I have my reasons. continue reading »

Pizza Rock

March 26th, 2014 by Erik Chudy

creamyEither I’m getting lucky or some restaurants are just stepping up their game; the last few reviews I’ve posted have all been from extremely positive experiences. Some people claim I’m a bit too critical, but that’s what I’m here for. And besides, I’ve reviewed over 120 burgers in Vegas now so I have a few to reference. This next one comes from a new pizza joint that opened a few months ago called Pizza Rock. I’ve avoided a few reviews such as this in the past because I always assume a restaurant that has one main focus surely can’t make a decent burger, but after my last review that may no longer be the case. If one Italian-focused restaurant produced a fantastic burger, can a second? continue reading »

Bobby’s Burger Palace

February 26th, 2014 by Erik Chudy

huge!More exciting for me than Batali’s new burger joint, Bobby’s Burger Palace just opened at the Mandarin a couple weeks ago. While this is a bit of chain, there are several items exclusive to the Vegas menu and I must review all things burger in town either way. I’ve been to the Massachusetts location a couple times now, and was more than happy with my experience so I knew this would be a good addition to the burger scene in town. The location was a bit questionable as a restaurant placed at the sidewalk directly on the Strip surely doesn’t appeal to a local, so could the concept be as good as the execution? continue reading »

Al’s Beef

February 12th, 2014 by Erik Chudy

messy burger!Chalking this review up to a matter of convenience and location, I recently found myself on the West side of Sahara near the newly-opened Al’s Beef and decided to give it a shot. A couple weeks ago a friend took me to Braddah’s next door, and someone mentioned Al’s after seeing my check-in. I don’t think I would have bothered coming here, but after reading about the opening on Eater and then having it suggested by a reader I figured I might as well. Besides, a restaurant that has the word ‘beef’ in its name must serve a decent burger? continue reading »

SkinnyFats

November 11th, 2013 by Erik Chudy

looks pretty good!I still have a handful of burgers on my to-do list including some on-Strip steakhouses that potentially have good yet expensive burgers, and maybe a couple of local’s spots that some friends swear by in town, but I think I’ve pretty much handled just about any burger worth eating in Vegas at this point. Still, new restaurants keep popping up all over town, so my work to review what’s out there will never cease. One of the newest hot spots that’s been frequently mentioned by many of my friends is SkinnyFats, which also happens to have a massive burger on their menu. So once again I ventured out for a lunch to try this latest offering to the burger world, and come back with my full report just for you. continue reading »
