“Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada!” Landing in “Entertainment Capital,” this inviting foodie haven is bound to appease every sense. Fortunately, the need to feed can be accomplished northbound or heading south of Las Vegas Boulevard. Hungering over Vegas sights, who knew walking along “the strip” quickly leaves one simply hungry. Sleepless in 702, and with an insatiable appetite for sinfully delicious calories, BBP is a worthy pit stop to replenish and re-energize.
Courtesy of Bobby Flay’s very own burger palace, this fast-food joint flame-broils three selects ─ Angus beef, chicken or ground turkey ─ and with endless savoury ‘stately’-inspired toppings. Debating not over the east or west, burger-lovers can go coastal with picks such as the “Miami,” the “Dallas” and even the “Bobby Blue.” What’s more? Choose your preferred meat patty, and get it “Crunchified.” That’s right, even if you’re not keen on the “Crunchburger” ─ double cheeseburger with chips ─ this burger house will generously tower any desired protein plate with golden crisps. So there you have it: the addition of complimentary potato chips fit for preferential treatment ─ burger of choice ─ and, ultimately a high stakes noshing session of tasty bites of Americana.
Do we ever learn from jokes? I do like my coffee ‘hot,’ my chips ‘crisp’ and while in a restaurant, I’ll definitely ─ especially, when given the choice ─ take my burger “Topless.” Inside-joke ─ perhaps ─ but, when you’re at BBP in Vegas, this is the way to order. On the menu, and soon to be my very own, I opt for a “Topless” ─ hold the buns, carb-free ─ “L.A.” style Angus beef burger salad with a serving of chicken. Clearly, ‘someone’ hearts protein and veg. Even better, my plateful is promptly delivered tableside and ─ utensils in-hand ─ ready for consumption. All in all, the combination of succulent ─ doubled ─ meat with sweet baby greens, creamy avocado relish, refreshing tomato, watercress, and balsamic dressing is without a doubt one delectable gamble for a meal gone right.
Fully satisfied at BBP, a ‘good’ food experience is like winning the jackpot. Luckily, Bobby’s Burger Palace offers plenty of highly mentionable items to leave many with ‘won-over’ appetites, post-indulging. Tender yet crisp, the sea salted sweet potato fries are quite good and a possible accompaniment as are other sides. Leaving enticing malts and milkshakes for a future visit, here’s my overall first impression of Mr. Iron Chef’s burger restaurant: it does reign in supreme flavour and service. On that note, “Allez cuisine!” ─ and, make a trip to BBP.
