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.
Gordon’s been a busy man! A solid burger is hard to fine, IMHO. Glad that Gordon’s doin’ it right!
He sure has! Agree – it seems so simple, but so many people overthink it.
Looking forward to seeing how BurGR stacks up against Bachi Burger and DW Bistro’s burgers. We all know Gordon has a very high standard for his cuisine.
Definitely been meaning to try Bachi…seems a clear step up in originality..and overall richness and flavor.
I had both the fries and the onion rings. The fries where very chewy but fluffy inside. The Onion rings where in a word AWESOME and worth the nearly $10.00 price tag, they came with the same sauces as the fries, but topped with a very nice cheese.
We also had the Hell’s Kitchen Burger. It was very well done. So two out of three where good, the fries lost because they where so chewy, I nearly asked for a refund on them, but decided not to make a fuss.
Glad to hear it was a (mostly) positive experience!
