Burger Bar: Build Your Own Ultimate Burgers – This book is full of Burger Bar insight as well as recipes for making your own awesome burgers.
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.
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.

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