Burger Bar in Mandalay Bay

  • x

I went here for lunch today. First time. I was pretty impressed with the burger....interesting your own style...kind of like The Counter in Santa Monica, CA.....I liked the Burger Bar a bit better...the onion rings were really good.

They had a surf and turf burger...which I wonder about...also, the "Kobe Beef" burger...i wonder how that was....I've heard that the Kobe Beef style isn't great for burgers...who knows. Any experiences with any of the other times.

    I had the "Kobe" beef burger at Burger Bar, and it was good, but it wasn't anything special. That was consistent with a different one I had elsewhere. I think burgers are a waste of perfectly good wagyu.

    1. I went there last week...we thought is was lousy and overpriced. Burgers were overcooked, dry and tasteless, sent some back to be re-cooked. French Fries were frozen out of a bag and not as good as most fast food restaurants. I was very dissapointed, way overpriced, 15.00 for basic hamburger, can't get to cooked right, don't waste your money here.

        I went there in 04 and loved it, the fries were excellent and shake was great, in 05, they brought everything out after it clearly had been sitting under a lamp for over ten minutes, cold and not very good.

        Best burger I've had in Vegas was at Mesa Grill for lunch, very reasonable(in 04)$11 got you breadbasket with corn muffins, burger with fixins, and southwest flavored fries.

          Yeah, that Mesa burger is great.

      2. My favorite LV burger is from Rosemary's. With such mixed reviews on the Burger Bar I think I'll pass. If I'm at Mandalay Bay and dropping coin on some chow I'll head for the lounge at Fleur De Lys.

          Let us know how the lounge food is there!

        2. Agree with mdietrich. Went there last night for dinner and we were very disappointed. Burgers were unexceptional on every count. I had the American Classic (bacon cheeseburger) and my girlfriend had the buffalo. Both were ho-hum, nothing special and definitely not worth $13+. The atmosphere was like a sports bar. Fries were bland but the onion rings had a light crust and were quite tasty. Everyone else in our party of 9 agreed: thumbs down on the Burger Bar. We'll try Rosemary's or Mesa Grill next time we get the hankering for a burger.
