Burger Bar Las Vegas Exterior

Burger Bar is Hubert Keller’s gourmet burger joint. It has been open since 2004. He runs the highly respected Fleur de lys French restaurant in San Francisco. This location is in Mandalay Bay’s shopping mall. We’ve been here before and came back to review it. They serve burgers, salads, and sandwiches. You can build your own burger with all sorts of goodies. We avoided the crazy expensive $60 Kobe beef, foie gras burger. No sense in overdoing it.
They have their own butcher shop that hand mixes meat daily.

Burger Bar Las Vegas interior

Decor, Vibe – Sports bar meets a rustic wood laden restaurant with long bar, booths with TVs. Bar-like with cocktail waitresses with bare midriffs as servers. Lots of tourists were eating lunch when we were there.

Picks:

Burger Bar Las Vegas Salmon Sandwich

Atlantic King Salmon Sandwich ($8.50) was a nice sized fillet on a ciabatta bun. Simple, tender, juicy, healthy and delicious. If you don’t eat red meat, try this.

Burger Bar Las Vegas Classic Burger

American Classic Burger ($13) Prime grade Ridgefield farm beef, American cheese, crispy bacon on a slightly buttered sesame bun was cooked to a perfect medium rare and served with delicious sweet potato fries. The meat was juicy and flavorful. The bacon was good and tasty. The sesame bun was big, fresh, and very good.

Burger Bar Las Vegas Black and White shake

Black and White shake ($8.75) with cookies and cream and chocolate sauce was a heavy duty shake. Very good ice cream and very strong chocolate made for an awesome shake.

OK:

Burger Bar Las Vegas Grilled Cheese

Kid’s Grilled Cheese ($5.95) was pretty average.

Burger Bar Las Vegas Sliders

Kid’s Crabby patty ($5.95) burger was good but a tiny 2 bite wonder.

Pans:
None

Service was fair, we had to track down our server several times. Burger Bar had some of the best burgers we have eaten. They round it out with great shakes. Table cloth laden places do not count! We have no problem recommending this place and like the San Francisco location.

Burger Bar is also in St. Louis.

    The first day of the year we went to San Francisco location. We really were very disappointed from service to food.
    We had to wait for 1:20 when the hostess told us the waiting was of 30 min.
    When we got seated the table was dirty and with chocolate on the seat not to
    mention that I was wearing a nice white coat. The waitress was kind of dirty looking and took to long in attend us. The food, well, We were expecting a nice burger, but we got dry horrible burger. I asked to have Jalapenos on it, usually in other places they saute them this was uncooked. My husband asked for medium no cheese burger and he got a nice hard chard-broil burger. We were a family of 5 adults from 14 to 40’s. The music was too loud we couldn’t have a nice conversation. I asked for an example of milk shakes and the caramel was bacon at the finish huggg! (I’m a wine maker.) The price was expensive I can get better burger in Phyllis San Rafael. Well, this experience was too bad and certainly we will not go back there. Sorry that the name of one of my favorites chef’s are behind!

    Hi,
    Went to this burger place and was disappointed. I expected so much more from a Keller restaurant. Imagine so much work put into the decor and an ugly plate came to my table with not enough food to fill it…I pictured a black plate with HK on it somewhere. Creatively this food was boring to look at. I never expected to see a bottle of ketchup and mustard exposed at one of HK restaurants, it is not a good look for any restaurant. The burger was really great but the fries were cold and with little flavor. I expected a homemade pickle, special HK onions, and a selection of unique sauces for the bun to pair with my choice of burgers. Now that would be a HK menu. What happened? HK you can do so much better and I believe you will.
