Vegas: Strip Burger

Hi! Have you missed me? I've missed you! I'm back from Vegas, older, smarter and wiser (if only). Instead of posting my food reviews in a chronological order, I decided to do it randomly.

Thus, first on the list is dinner at Strip Burger, recommended by my friend Stephanie. The restaurant was 5 minutes away from our hotel, which was a real plus. Lera did not feel like eating, so it was just Anna and I (and me?) for dinner. The menu was very reasonable, and since we were planning on going salsa dancing at 11pm and it was already 9 pm, we quickly decided what to order.

[Side note: Anna and I are twins. But that doesn't mean we have the same taste. Well, in most things we do, but not in soda: Anna likes Diet Coke, I like Diet Pepsi. This time Anna was the lucky girl because the restaurant served Coke products.]

In honor of Jenny, I ordered mushroom cheddar burger - melted Wisconsin cheddar & sautéed mushrooms and a side of fried pickles. Anna ordered green chili cheeseburger - roasted green chilies, pepper jack cheese and a side of sweet potato fries.

I thought our orders would never come. But eventually the food was delivered to our table. It looked and smelled amazing! And of course we shared the food 50/50.


The burgers were perfectly cooked, juicy, and the toppings were just right! The pickles were a bit thinner than I would have preferred, but they were fried, so I did not care! The fries (in my opinion) were good, but Anna thought they lacked spice.

Overall this was a great meal! We even brought some leftover fries and pickles for Lera. And I'm sure we've burned at least 1/100th of the calories at the salsa club! :)

I had fried pickles at BLT Burger in Vegas. They were really good! I didn't really care for the burgers there though, so I will try this place next time.
