Any time I travel someplace out of town, I do my research and try to find which restaraunts are going to be worth my time and money to eat at! Vegas has many restaurants that I wanted to try, but being that I'm a cheap bastard and didn't want to rent a car or pay for a taxi, I kept my eating to the Strip this time around!! Ahahahahahahahahahaha!!!
After doing a little research, Burger Bar, located in between Luxor and Mandalay Bay in a little mall, quickly came to the top of my to do list!!! I mean to hell with going to see Jersey Boys, Love, the Thunder from Down Under, or the water show at the Bellagio!!! The only thing I really wanted to do while in Vegas, was eat at Burger Bar!! Upon getting off of the plane, my first stop was in fact Burger Bar! But, to my dismay, each time I went to Burger Bar, there was a huge line and a really long wait! What can I say, I have no patience!!! Ahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!! So, I ended up biding my time and went at a really weird time to eat, like 3:30pm, or something!! But I got right in when I went!!
I actually first heard about Burger Bar on TV due to the fact that they have a $60 burger on the menu that I think has Kobe beef, truffles, and foie gras! I told myself that if I got lucky in the casino's then I'd parlay my winnings into sampling that $60 burger! That didn't happen!!! But I did load up on too many cocktails, which was.... nice! Ahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!
OK, so Burger Bar! I ordered a burger with bacon, cheddar, and chipotle mayo along with the standard lettuce, tomato, and onion!!! Also, I ordered fat fries and a chocolate shake with Oreos!!! When I scooped up my burger I held it in my hands like a sweaty drugged up mother holds her newborn baby after giving birth!!! This burger looked so precious and was so beautiful!!!! Part of me didn't want to eat it as I began to develop feelings for my Burger Bar burger!!!! Ahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!! However, whatever emotional connection I had with my food quickly ended as I squeezed a massive bite of that burger into my oval shaped mouth!!! Upon the burger's initial interaction with my taste buds, adrenaline began rushing through my body and I began to feel what a gambler might feel after betting his life savings on the Super Bowl!!!!! What a rush!!! Wow!!! It's the rush, the risk, the living with the knowledge of knowing that your fate and livlihood rests in the hands of a professional athlete or the next card that's dealt from the shoe! If you win, you're set for life!!! But if you lose, you're ruined!!!! What a feeling it must be to be a professional gambler!!! And when you're letting it ride, sitting with that adrenaline rush, you don't ever want to lose that feeling!!!!! Ahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!! And as I sat at Burger Bar, staring into the soul of my burger, chewing and savoring every nectarous bite of Hubert Kelly's burger concoction, I didn't want it to end!!! I didn't want to lose that feeling!!! I didn't want it to end!!!! I wanted to just keep going and capture that feeling that Burger Bar was bringing to me for as long as I possibly could!!! I would've ordered another one, but it wouldn't have been financially prudent!! Jesus!!! If Burger Bar was illegal I'd probably be homeless living a life of panhandling, pick pocketing, and robbing liquor stores to fuel my Burger Bar habit!!!!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!! But if it was illegal, I probably really would!!!
The fries were fine as well, but it was the burger that stole the damned show for me and was the highlight of my trip! Also, the shake was very good!! I would say it's a top-10 shake for me!!! The beautiful thing about the shakes is that you can create different combinations with a great selection of ice-cream and toppings!!! I'm old school with my shakes and go straight up with the chocolate, but I added some Oreo's in the spirit of creativity that Burger Bar encourages with their shake menu!!!
Look, this is a good ass burger!!! Yeah, maybe a bit pricey, but you get what the hell you pay for!!! That's a fact which is not up for debate!!!!! There are many excellent burgers I have sampled in my life, and Burger Bar has got to be right there at the top for me!!!
When in Vegas, skip the Chippendales show, skip hitting the black jack table, or going to the Pawn Stars store!!! Your focus and primary destination when in Vegas, should be Burger Bar!!!!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!! I'm already plotting as to how I can get back to Vegas so I can have another go around at this place!!!! I can't say enough about Burger Bar!!!! You owe it to your existence as a human being to try one of these burgers before you die!!! Do it now!!!! Ahahahahahahahahahaha!!!
