After a long walk to the media room at the Convention Center, we built up quite an appetite for a big, juicy burger.

So just by line of site, AAB&G was an instant hit. The service was especially good (chose sitting at the bar as opposed to a table or booth).

The burger was indeed big and juicy, a half-pounder that was as advertised. Lots of times it says half-pound and you leave wondering, but this was legit. At nearly $11 with fries, the price was in the ballpark ($14.85) considering you are eating in a casino resort.

The bun was not sesame seeds, but big and tasty. What really stood out was the waffle-fries that came with the meal. At first there were doubts, but daring to be different in this case was a good thing. While not our top choice in fries preference, they were quite good.

I happened to see a prior review on line in which a customer complained about watered down soft drinks. Not the case here. And you don’t get cheated on size.

Bottom line: We’re all-in on this hand.
