Gordon Ramsay BurGR
3667 Las Vegas Blvd S
Las Vegas, NV 89109
Dining date: 5/12/13
Gordon Ramsay has been a busy man in Las Vegas, opening three restaurant concepts in three different hotels within about 8 months’ time. His latest is his most casual and approachable – a burger joint within the Planet Hollywood hotel. Coming off of dinner the previous night at Gordon Ramsay Steak, this would be our second consecutive red meat meal from Ramsay.
The menu is very streamlined and focused here, featuring a handful of snacks/appetizers and about ten burger options. There isn’t your build-your-own-burger type place, which is something I appreciate. Fries and a couple of salad and hot dog options round out the menu.
Farm Burger duck breast bacon, english sharp cheddar, fried egg (substitute regular bacon)
Hell’s Kitchen Burger asadero cheese, roasted jalapeno peppers, avocado, oven roasted tomato
My dad went for the Hell’s Kitchen burger while I went with the Farm. Disappointingly, they were out of the duck bacon, so regular pork bacon was substituted for it. I’d have to say the burgers were pretty well done, with a nicely-cooked pink center for the meat and a very soft bun. The meat had a subtle smokiness, nice char and was pretty juicy. My fried egg was cooked perfectly, with the yolk oozing out once broken. Considering the bacon and egg on the burger, this was about as close as I was going to get to brunch on this Sunday morning. I thought this was a pretty good burger.
Just Fries hand cut fries, chipotle ketchup, curry ketchup
These larger-cut fries were done well too, crispy on the outside and fluffy inside. The housemade ketchups were quite good too. Simple but executed well.
I don’t think any diner is going to be “wowed” here, but the food is actually quite good. The burgers, while simple, were thoroughly satisfying and cooked just right. And while we didn’t try anything other than sides the french fries, those were just as satisfying. There are a ton of options to alleviate a burger craving on The Strip; I would consider BurGR one of the legitimate options.
