I’m in burger heaven with three 5-wimpy efforts (Papa, Rhodes Ranch Country Club, Bootleg Betty’s) within a two-mile radius of Chez A La Carte. Fresco is another in the swarm of sports bar/restaurants popping up in SW Vegas. Nice design, with the restaurant seating separated from the bar and video poker machines so customers can enjoy a meal with privacy and good conversation. The All-American burger is stellar — juicy the way we like it on a bun larger and more traditional than offered in most establishments. The fries are tasty and plentiful. The price is a touch higher than other comparable places, but if the quality is there that’s not a problem. Service was friendly and quick. An excellent place to stop with the new-look feel of a place that is only a month old.
