Bobby's Burger Palace, Mohegan Sun

Grabbed a bite at BBP this weekend. Two of us, no sides just two burgers. It was $7.50 for each burger. I had the LA Burger which had an avocado relish, watercress, cheddar and tomato. Partner had the Bobby Blue Burger with blue cheese, bacon, lettuce and tomato. The bacon was nice and thick, burgers were nice and juicy, cooked perfectly medium as specified. Condiments are on the tables which include ketchup, yellow mustard, chipotle ketchup, jalapeno sauce and burger sauce (which looked A1/brown sauce like but I didn't try it). I tried the jalapeno sauce which was fiery and a nice compliment to my LA burger.
Didn't order sides but I saw them around, definitely big enough for two to split. I only spied the sweet potatoes fries, which looked awesome, and the onion rings which looked good, though they have a heavier batter which I know some people aren't in to.
All in all, I would go back again. Great burgers are abound so I wouldn't call it the best ever, but a fine burger for sure. I would have no problem plunking down $7.50 for another one when in the area.
It was nice to be reminded of this burger place (I'm a burger fiend). They do a great job.
I don't like to gamble at Mohegan (I much prefer Foxwoods -- it's the people). However, while we're "in the neighborhood" it's nice to walk through Mohegan and sometimes have a bite to eat.
A lot people tend to rag on Bobby Flay because he is so over-exposed. But as Anthony Bourdain put it, his restaurants are all a hell of a lot better than they have to be.
