Max Jacobson Finds the Best Barbecue in Vegas

Max Jacobson at Vegas Seven says he's found the "city's finest barbecue joint, Rollin Smoke BarbeQue." He says the meats are "tender, smoky and full-flavored. The beef rib is huge, crusty and almost medieval. Baby backs are fall-off-the-bone tender." [VS]

Al Mancini at CityLife checks out Pho Mailan, where the waiter told him, "Since it's really busy tonight, I'd say to go with a soup." While the English descriptions of the dishes on the menu can be misleading, he says, "Those dishes are wonderful, and the versions I sampled here were done very well." [CL]

Jim Begley at Las Vegas Weekly found a rarity in Vegas — Samoan food. The Hungry Islander features a buffet with dishes such as "mulipipi (turkey tails) or povi masima and kapisi (corned beef and cabbage)? If it sounds overwhelming, don't fret; the friendly staff will guide you through the whole experience." [LVW]

Erik Chudy at Vegas Burger Blog revisits Honey Saltto try the Backyard Favorite Burger and the new Honey Salt Burger Month Burger with a Wagyu patty, bacon jam, applewood and walnut smoked cheddar, pickled red onion and fried egg with house made potato chips. He gives the overall experience a 91 out of 100. [VBB]

Heidi Knapp Rinella at the Las Vegas Review-Journal gives bear-sized portions at Black Bear Diner an A. Her only minus was that the "portions are sized for actual bears." [LVRJ]
