Chef and TV superstar Bobby Flay surprised everyone by opening Bobby’s Burgers, his twist on a fast-casual, American eatery, inside the Forum Food Hall at Caesars Palace. The restaurant takes over the former Smashburger space at the food court with burgers inspired by his travels around the country, fries, and shakes.
The burgers feature traditional ingredients such as bacon and cheese on the Palace Classic Burger and the Bobby Blue + Bacon Burger. A Crunchburger comes topped with cheese and chips; the Nacho Burger is made with queso, tomato salsa and pickled jalapeños; and the BBQ Smokehouse Burger comes with bacon, crispy onion, chipotle barbecue sauce, and American cheese. The outlet also has Bobby’s Veggie Burger with barbecue mushrooms, chickpeas, quinoa, lettuce, and tomato, or a fried chicken sandwich.
Side options include French fries, fries with toppings such as cheese and bacon, sweet potato fries and buttermilk onion rings. Bobby’s Burgers also offers dipping sauces, including ranch, honey mustard-horseradish, and Bobby’s special sauce. Milkshake flavors include vanilla bean, dark chocolate, cookies and cream, strawberry, and pistachio.
Bobby’s Burger joins DiFara Pizza, Starbucks, and the temporarily closed The Halal Guys, TaCo., and Smoke & Sizzle Barbecue at the 14,900-square-foot Forum Food Hall. Still to come, the 2,186-square-foot Stadia Bar with a 120-seat bar and lounge that gives the feel of a live sports arena.
Also on the way from Flay, Amalfi by Bobby Flay, which replaces Mesa Grill at Caesars Palace. Amalfi is Flay’s first Italian restaurant, inspired by the chef’s travels to the Amalfi coast in Italy.
