Since we are in the middle of summer and the Fourth of July holiday just passed I thought it was time to do a review on a burger joint.
So many have popped up in the last few years here in Vegas that it’s tough to keep up. I got the chance to try Gordon Ramsay BurGR inside Planet Hollywood.
My group went the traditional route and ordered the American Burger. Mine was good but I wish it was cooked medium and not more medium well. In many reviews of burger places I’ve penalized the burger because of the bun. In this instance the burger got extra points for the bun, which can make or break the sandwich.
We also ordered the Farm Burger, which came with English cheddar cheese, fried egg and duck breast bacon. My friend never had duck breast bacon before but said it made the burger. Also getting high marks was the Blue Burger, though done just slightly more than asked.
We ordered two kinds of fries and they were big enough for three people to share. One order was regular fries, the other sweet potato fries. Both were very good but my personal favorite was the sweet potato fries.
We all ordered gourmet milkshakes, a must. I went with the Oreo, which is not your traditional milkshake. Three quarters of the glass was milkshake but the top had crème brulee pudding so you got two treats in one. My milkshake was very good and was a perfect way to top off the meal.
We also had the banana milkshake, which was topped with butterscotch pudding, and a chocolate milkshake topped with peanut butter pudding. All three were thoroughly enjoyed.
Next time I go to Gordon Ramsay BurGR I want to try one of their hotdogs, especially the foot-longs. But for my first visit how could I not get a burger from a burger joint?
Our waiter was very polite, attentive and helpful with menu suggestions like how big the fries are. Prices are what you expect for a gourmet burger joint on the Strip – ranging from $13-$16. If you are a Total Rewards member don’t forget to show your card as you get a dollar off on all the menu items.
BurGR is good but with so many gourmet burger places on the Strip there are a few I would rate slightly above. I give Gordon Ramsay BurGR 3.5 Forks.
