    I'm a big fan of Guy Fieri and want to try one of his restaurants. I think there is only one in Vegas but not sure where it is at. Has anyone ate there and is it any good? How about prices? Thanks!

    I'm not a huge fan of his place at the Linq. Sure, the location is great and it makes a good lunch / hold you over meal, but it just never really satisfied me. Certainly didn't feel like commensurate with caliber of his name. The bloody mary's there are fantastic, though. And, the people who I've met there have been great. With that said, for the money, I'd rather do hash a go go.

    We've been to his restaurant at the Linq on one of our earlier trips and plan to visit it again later this year.

    Decent prices, outgoing table servers and excellent comfort food served up in a great location.

    In addition to the one at the Linq, he has a Mexican inspired restaurant at the Rio. Can't comment on the food. Never tried his food but I do like searching out the restaurants he features on his shows.

    I find his prices are geared towards the everyday person. He's never been about fine dining. But it's also Vegas so there's gonna be a premium. His menus, with prices, can be found on the Linq and Rio's hotel websites.

    The one in the Rio is called el burro burracho (the drunk donkey).
    It's pretty decent, foods good with large portions. Servers are attentive and helpful. Prices are ok for Vegas.

    It can get busy at times and only opens for dinner. No lunch service when I was there in June.
    If you are at the rio it's worth checking out.

    We ate at Guy's once - Since we had a comp, we ordered the most expensive thing on the menu, the flat Iron steak and the Cedar-planked Salmon. Both were excellent, and not too expensive. We really liked it.

    Two things: We noticed a few instances where the other guests got the wrong order ("I ordered the Mac and Cheese hamburger, not this something-else hamburger"). Seemed to be more than a few mix ups.

    The other thing was the cute bus girls (appeared to be under 21 or so). They roamed back and fourth in the aisles, but NEVER made eye contact with us to see if we wanted anything (like water, maybe?).

    The waiters were fine, and the food was good. I would go again someday, if I could tear myself away from Big Elvis' show next door at Harrah's.

    I've been there for breakfast a number of times. Love the french toast with candied bacon. I had a sub-par experience in 2016, but on my most recent trip about a month or so ago the quality seemed to pick up again.

    This past weekend was our second time there and like our first visit, it was excellent. Great food, great service, huge portions, ok prices.

    The Trash Can Brisket Nachos are excellent are definitely enough for several.

    It isn't top of the line by any means, but the mac and cheese burger is phenomenal. The trash can nachos are pretty good as well...as stated above, the bloody marys are excellent too.

    I will be honest - and contrary to what seems like popular opinion above - I really wasn't impressed! I went to the one attached to the Linq last year.

    We went just as it was turning Lunch time and it was pretty quiet. The menu was reasonably limited and considering all the burger alternatives and hash house so close I was expecting something better.

    The food is average - good but the price isn't amazing. The portions are huge which is maybe why the price isn't great however I would rather pay more for something smaller with a higher quality.

    Its ok I guess, not on my list to revisit however if you are a Guy fan I'm sure its worth going too once.

    There is Guy Fieri's Burger Joint and Pig N Anchor BBQ on the cruise ship I'm taking out of New Orleans. I'll have to leave a review on both of them as I'm sure I'll be eating brisket and a burger for lunch a few times. I'm sure on a cruise ship it won't compare to his land based restaurants, but I like those casual type dining options for lunch. There's a Cantina restaurant as well with all types of Mexican food I'm excited about as last cruise I think the only thing I ate from the buffet was items from the taco bar. I thought the buffet on Princess sucked and dining room wasn't much better. It definitely was a geriatric cruise and though Carnival is definitely a step down from Princess, I think the food options look better and more activities for my children.

    I tried his restaurant at the Linq a couple of years back. Keep in mind that I'm a huge fan of DDD. However, I was disappointed with his restaurant.
    The food wasn't bad. However, I thought that there were too few choices on the menu. Nothing really grabbed me.
    I'm glad I went, but it was a one and done.

    I LOVE the tatted up turkey at the vegas kitchen and bar at the linq. It is amazing. The TR app got me a free mimosa back in April with it. I haven't been to the one at the RIo.

    We ate there once right when it opened and we thought it was ok (liked the fries and mac and cheese burger-and they had great milkshakes then, since deleted from the menu). We've been back since and we thought it was aggressively average and overpriced, with indifferent service. We'll not go back.

    My wife and I make sure to stop in eat there every time that we are in Vegas. She gets the Motley Q sandwich and I always get the Bacon Mac & Cheese Burger. We have always eaten at the Bar and the service has always been good. :thumbsup:

    I had great service in the restaurant and on the patio. And let's be honest, you don't always get good service when you are alone.

    I like Guy and his place at Linq. I have been a couple times, the place can be a bit crowded, though there is outdoor seating, which depending on the season could be good or bad. The food was what you would expect and I found it good. Prices where a bit higher than other places, but overall I liked my experience. I would go back.

    True story. Walked by it last week and there was puke right next to Guy's outside patio. Of course, someone walking by made a funny comment about the quality of his food, which made me notice it.
