Maybe one day, Vegas Seven will start adding starred or graded reviews to their repertoire, but for now, Al Mancini says of Bobby Flay's new Bobby's Burger Palace at the Shops at Crystals, "… for a guy who says he just wanted to create a burger so memorable you'll want to come back for more, it's a success."
He didn't care for the grilled cheese sandwich or the turkey burgers, but he "walked in intending to simply have a bite or two [of the beef burger] for "research purposes" and devoured an entire sandwich." [VS]
In the meantime, Erik Chudy does offer graded reviews, giving Bobby's Burger Palace an 89 out of 100. He tried the Vegas Burger with white American cheese, Fresno red chiles and barbecue crunch. "The meat was of really good quality, cooked well and prominent with not much seasoning but good beefy flavor. The cheese wasn't too prominent, but the red chilies had a slight pop to them and really good flavor." [VBB]
Mitchell Wilburn says The Goodwich is so good, that he's been returning twice a week for the Downtown sandwiches. "If we had more places like The Goodwich, we would be sitting pretty, and downtown would really be giving The Strip a run for its money!" [Eating LV]
Michael Uzmann by far churns out the most reviews every week, and this time he covers Gimme Some Sugar, the Henderson bakery. "Both the dense chocolate dipped Snickers and rich, savory Fig and Goat Cheese "Whooparons" undoubtedly justifying the nearly hour-long round trip…though if they ever decide to expand I definitely see a market for a second shop in ever trendy Summerlin." [EE]
Brock Radke calls the sandwiches at Al's Italian Beef "killer." "I'm comfortable claiming this: the regular Al ($6.35) with provolone cheese, hot giardiniera and sweet peppers, plus a bonus dip in beefy jus to saturate its soft roll and create a delicious mess, is the best Italian beef I've tasted in Las Vegas." [LVW]
HKR gives the all-you-can-eat sushi and roll joint Blue Fin Sushi & Roll on Sunset Road A grades across the board. "…the AYCE doesn't include the whole menu and we wanted to order at will. We needn't have worried (and maybe could've saved the R-J a couple of bucks) because everything we ordered was on the AYCE menu as well, and we didn't see any silly rules and restrictions regarding it ("You must eat all the rice!") I understood, then, why it was such a popular option with those around us." [LVRJ]
