On a tip, we made our first trek out to Nellis to test the double cheeseburger at Margaritaville just an 8-iron from the 18th hole at Sunrise Vista inside the famed air base. We were just glad to get clearance from central command. This may be the only restaurant in Las Vegas where you need proper ID and agree to have your car searched in order to enter. Seeing the Thunderbirds do their thing is awe-inspiring, sort of making the consumption of a burger an after-thought. In all, it was a very good meal. Tasty burger, crunchy fries, great atmosphere at a decent price. So why not the full 5? Well, we’d rather see one large burger rather than that fast food appearance of two shorties. But, we recommend Margaritaville between nines. And, management serves Margaritas.
