A Victory for Circa’s eateries

This week, we made a stop at the brand new Circa Resort & Casino. We couldn’t wait to check out the highly anticipated opening, especially the sportsbook.

So often, the reality never lives up to the hype. But in this case, Circa did, and beyond. The sportsbook is incredible and makes it a must-see in downtown Las Vegas. Honestly, I was impressed with everything about Circa. But as a sports fan and sports bettor, the book is a game changer.

One of the nice bonuses to sitting in the Circa sportsbook is you can order food to enjoy at your seat or table. But if you want a bird’s eye view while dining, check out Victory Burger & Wings which overlooks the sportsbook.

On my visit, I went for a late lunch as I wanted to check everything out. I went with their signature burger, aptly named Victory Burger, which was a seasoned half-pound burger topped with hand-cut cheddar cheese, thick bacon slices and finished with their victory sauce. The burger was great and priced like what you would expect for a gourmet burger if you were on the Strip. The onion rings are outstanding, and the waffle fries are a nice change of pace.

You know I can’t watch football without wings and they’ve got you covered there as well. They sell the wings by the pound and have the following sauces — Buffalo, Sweet Chili, Sweet BBQ or Garlic Parmesan. I went with the Sweet Chili and was very pleased. The wings were crispy on the outside yet moist on the inside.

Normally, beer would be the drink of choice with a burger and wings. But if you want to satisfy your sweet tooth, I suggest trying one of the specialty milkshakes. They have three different shakes that are made with cereal toppings. They have a Capt’n Crunch, Coco Puffs and Cinnamon Toast Crunch Milkshake with each priced at $7.77. Now that’s a Jackpot!

One note, there’s a one-hour table time limit so you can’t sit there and watch all the games in the restaurant. I give Victory Burger & Wings a rating of 3.75 Forks.
