Yes, it’s the Gilley’s you saw as part of the Frontier Hotel only it’s bigger and better now at Treasure Island.

The mechanical bull and huge dance floor are still there, but the dining area is a whole lot fancier with outdoor seating right on the Las Vegas Strip.

"It brings that part of life where people want to feel real casual," said Tony Nevill, director of race and sports at the TI. "We come down to Gilley’s to have a good hamburger and good food to eat."

And this is one really good hamburger – Texas big and juicy. They don’t hold back on the fries like a lot of places do and the roll is huge and soft.

The $16 price is high, but you definitely get what you pay for. Not to mention the excellent service, courtesy of lovely cowgirls dressed in black wearing cowboy hats.

There’s a Western feel, but not as heavy as it was at the Frontier. No this spot is for everyone and a definite winner in our book.
