    I wanted to give a quick shout out about this place.

    We ate here Friday night after our arrival in Vegas. I wasn't expecting anything fantastic, just a fill me up meal so I could get my night underway.

    Well, both myself and my companion thought these were some of the BEST burgers we've ever had. Juicy and super tasty. (even the well done one) And it wasn't greasy juicy like some places. It was actually moist. Additionally, the fries that come with the burger are sensational. Unlike a lot of the upscale burger places, these burgers come with a hearty order of completely wonderful fries. I'm not sure what the seasoning on them is, but its more than just salt. Delicious.

    We also ate for around $30 for the two of us. That's a bargain to me for a meal on the strip.

    Its hidden in the back of Harrahs, so I wonder if people don't miss it, as I've not heard a whole lot about this place. But if you get the chance, for sure try it out.

    I too have had a good burger there but be warned of the thick shakes, oh man are they THICK :eek:
    Can't remember which one I had, chocolate and coffee, nearly had a heart attack trying to finish it. Failed by the way :faint:

    Glad it seems to be getting better. I tried it when it opened and thought it was really awful. Can't believe you made me halfway willing to try it again.

    I had it in October because I found the $15 for $30 Groupon. I thought it was pretty good. I bought the Groupon again for my trip in January. It's a great deal with the Groupon.

    I won't go so far to say its the BEST burger I have had (or even the best on the Vegas strip). And the service is sometimes a little spotty. But that said, its still a decent place. above average food, good price, and since its stuck in the demilitarized zone that is Harrahs, there's usually not too much of a crowd :thumbsup:

    Walked by there the many times without going in. Then a friend made me go there on my last trip. What a surprise!
    Had the BBQ Bacon Burger medium-rare. It was cooked perfectly. The meat was lightly seasoned, with a little char around the edges and still pink and very juicy inside! The homemade BBQ sauce was a tad too much, it was pouring out of the thing. I'll ask for it on the side next time.
    The fries were cooked to perfection. :licklips:

    I now go there every trip to Harrah's. Not as good as Paris' Burger Brasserie, but for the price it is awesome. **Not because I always use my Reward Credits for the thing** But I would gladly pay for one as well.

    Wife and I have been here a couple of times. it's pretty good but the service both times was slow. My wife's favorite is BLT in the Mirage and hands down mine is Gordon Ramsey Burger in PH.

    Wife and her gf's raved about the double agent cocktail and the velvet hammer cocktail.

    I wish the buckets of beer were cheaper but it's a good burger joint.

    It's a very good burger, I wouldn't rate it higher than GR.

    The Groupon has been out there pretty much continuoulsy for many months. It's a bargain. Good to see the place getting some notice.

    Love Burgers

    Every trip I make to Vegas my brother and I search for the best burgers. We will try this place as we have not yet. BLT burger in Mirage was a disappointment, over priced and not good. Fatburger is pretty good, so are burgers at Twin Peaks (Cheese Sticks there are delish). Our favorite place so far is In and Out Burger behind NYNY. It is a bit of a walk but is cheap and holy cow good. Order it Animal Style with the fries so good. We dont have IN and Out on the East Coast so we love it.

    Love me some In N Out. You gotta try the Sin City Burger at any of the Smashburger locations in Vegas. Yum! And it doesn't break the bank.

    Where?

    Where might one of these burger places be? We love Hamburgers and are always in search of our favorites. I will definitely add it to our list.
