If late night hunger comes upon you like it did us, this is a real good spot. Brando’s is a very comfortable bar along the growing Blue Diamond Rd. area, which boasts a brand new Home Plate restaurant / sports bar just a few minutes west. The burger is very tasty and comes with more than enough fries. In fact, so many that we couldn’t finish them all. We definitely do suggest purchasing bottled soda instead of from the fountain. The tap has that metal taste, which Brando’s needs to correct. But, canned soda is fine and overall this is a quality meal. We also hear the meatball subs are delicious. And, we won $40 in video poker so that accounts for something.
