Located in between Mandaly Bay Hotel and Luxor Hotel. Very busy on weekends and sometimes hard to get a table. The burger selection is very good and the taste is good also. You pick your meat and bun and toppings. The beer selection is the best you can get on the strip but you do pay a premium price. The beer is always fresh and usually served in the proper glassware. They offer a lot of rare bottles but again at a big price. They take reservations and I recommend them on weekends. The tables all have their own little tvs so you can watch what you want. The bar is nice and has large tvs above it with all sports on them. The wait staff is always friendly and attentive. If you need to use the rest room plan early as it is quite a long hike down a couple hall ways.

The family and I decided to dine here for dinner about a week or so ago while on a vacation to Vegas.

The place is located in a long corridor filled with ritzy over-priced shops and stores that connect the Mandalay Bay and Luxor hotel/casinos. I literally would have walked right past it, were it not for my lovely (and apparently more astute) wife. Annnnyhow...

Atmosphere: Dark, sports bar/grill sort of feel to the place. It has a decently aized bar, as well as plenty of tables/booths. Although, be aware-every booth has a tv in it playing sports...which you are unable to change/turn off. Not a big deal, I'm just not a huge sports fan. It was a Tuesday night, so it was not that busy; it was in fact much quietter than I was expecting.

Selection: For a restaurant on the Vegas strip that advertises itself as a "gourmet burger establishment" it had a fairly competetive list of bottles and decent selection of draught offerings divided by country/style. A word on the bottles, although a beer "oasis" by some means- the prices most certainly embody "supply and demand." I did notice that they had 90Minute IPA on tap (which I promptly ordered); it was very fresh- a much more noticible hop presence than I have ever gotten from a bottle on the Left coast.

Price: In the "real" world, this place would not be able to keep its doors open with it's beer AND food prices. BUT, in Vegas, the prices are about on par with establishments of the same caliber.

Service: Like I stated above, it was a Tuesday night, so our waiter had plenty of time to refill drinks/check up on my family. He was very polite; I ordered a Gulden Draak and it came out promptly with the appropriate glassware. Food was served rayher quickly as well, all hot, fresh, and cooked to order. No complaints here.

All in all, a good place for a burger and a beer. I will definitely come here again. Wife enjoyed her food very much, and my son loved his milkshake. A very positive experience.

It’s a burger bar, but not like any burger bar I’ve been too. Full of tables, booths and lots of bar stools. Each booth has a little TV to watch, well, TV.

The service was great and they were super friendly. They lost my order about 5 minues after taking it. The waitress was in tears over it and they ended up not charging us anything for our food, despite getting our food out faster than most places do on a regular basis. Our waitress was super and her manager was equally great.<br /><br /> Their burgers are world class and their food, from what we had, is all really good. The number of burgers they have is nice and all very different. I don’t mean simple changing the toppings around, I mean quality variety. Different types of meat, different buns to choose from, and the Rossini looked amazing with foie gras and shaved truffles.<br /><br /> They have about 100 different bottles of beer and 24 taps. Their selection is nice, they have extremely rare and hard to find beers like Firestone Walker 12 and they have plenty of local offerings as well.<br /><br /> As far as the prices...it’s Vegas, but it’s also not overkill.<br /><br /> If you make a trip to Vegas, then you need to stop in. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed...I was thrilled with the place.

Burger Bar is located in the Shoppes at Mandalay Place, the sky walk between Mandalay Bay and Luxor.

This place has the atmosphere of a sports bar. The booths all have TVs in them, and overall it is a lot of fun. Be warned though, most nights there is a pretty decent wait for the place (upwards of 30 minutes some nights, no reservations).

The quality has always been very good when I go, food has been done correctly and comes out within a reasonable time frame. They only really sell burgers/fries and some salads so as long as that is what you are looking for, you probably won't be diapointed. They do have a create your own burger which is a fun thing, you can pick everything that goes on from their normal menu, my only problem with this is some of the items that they charge extra for sometimes seems rediculous (not the price, just the fact that there is a charge at all). My usual choice is the chicken sandwhich.

The tap selection is pretty good overall for a Strip location. Prices on their taps are very reasonable, I was getting 9 oz pours of Abyss for 5.50. The best deal that they usually have is for the sampling menu, 6 - 6oz glasses, prices will vary but they usually end up costing me around 15$.

The bottle list is very impressive but this is where they start to get a bit more on the pricy side. Some are very reasonable, others are priced a bit high, but that is to disuade the drunk tourists from ordering it for fun. The vertical that they have of FSW 11-14 is a pretty nice offering if you have 4 people.

The staff is generally very nice, though aside from the bar tenders, beer knowledge is not universal. Best bet if you want to talk to someone about beer, sit at the bar.

Finally got to check this place out this past Tuesday. Tucked away in Mandalay Bay, this place from the outside is rather unassuming. Not real fancy, casual but with some interesting beer signs on the walls.

We got seated instantly and the updated beer list was right inside the menu! One of my biggest pet peeves is having to ask what is available, or an updated beer list. Upon looking at the draft list, my eyes light up when I see "The Abyss" on tap, for only $5.50 for a 9.5oz pour. Done and done.

My friends and I also split a bottle of GI BCS and Samichlaus, as they have not tried either of them.

I ordered the Black Angus burger with bacon and cheese, and it was without a doubt one of the best burgers I have ever had. One of the guys ordered the Kobe Beef and the others ordered Buffalo. Everyone raved how good their burgers were.

All in all for Vegas, the prices were very reasonable. Definitely worth the $, and one of the few places in Vegas you can get great beer! My only complaint, is when we asked for new glasses for our Samichlaus, the waitress brought us MGD64 pint glasses, instead of the Goblets brought originally. Service all in all was average, but the selection and quality make up for it.

After reading the great reviews about this place on BA, we decided to hit this place up while a short trip to Vegas. I definitely regret making the effort.

Service: I had made reservation to get to this place. We arrived 5 to 10 minutes passed our reservation time (due to bad traffic). The hostess told us that "we were very late and should consider going somewhere else." I figured she was having a bad day, so I told her we would wait. We were seated 10 minutes after (not long at all). Our waiter, great guy, but told us that they were short staffed, therefore the service was slow (yet decent).

Beer: they had a good selection, I noticed Deschutes and Widmer on the menu. My only problem was that I felt overpriced! I tend to do beer flights (to find new beers). They averaged $4.50 per taster. What made it ridiculous was that they would charge you $4.50 for a taster of MILLER LITE! It is already a bad beer (surprisingly they offered it), and then it was overpriced (much like everything else). I believe you can buy a six pack for that price. Wow I was shocked!

Food: I had noticed other reviews had talked a lot about the burgers. I decided to order a burger for $20 (I figure there has to be some magic going on, ciabatta bread, blue cheese, etc). I was wrong. It wasn't that the burger was bad, but it wasn't $20 good. At best it was ok. I was there with 3 other friends and no one at my table was impressed.

Atmosphere: regular diner looking place. Lots of things hanging from the walls. You have to walk out of the restaurant to use the bathroom.

In conclusion, we were disappointed with this place. We ordered 4 burgers, and one beer. Our bill came out $88 and change, very overpriced. Not worth a repeat.

Took us a bit to find this place but it was fun. A fairly small, narrow place with a lot of wooden tables, chairs and a tiny bit of decor, which are all beer related. From oversized glassed, coasters or signs.

The beer menu is pretty large. Probably around 100 bottles and around 25 or so taps. They also had several rare bottles of beer; including all of the Firestone Walker annverisary beers 11 through 14, and they all came at a hefty price too. One could only order the FSW 11,12, and 13 if there were three adults present had to shell out $200. Also had Parabola for $45.

I went with a couple of beers that I can't get in Ohio and experienced both Kona and Deschutes. Both were served to me in their own brewery logos pint glass and were $6 a piece.

Service was good she was on top of most things.

Food wise is pretty insane. One can build everything about their burger from the type of meat and bread and along with about 50 toppings. Getting upward of $20 for a burger and fries.

Also if your better half or non beer drinking buddy is with you you could order a Cookies N Cream Martini which is what my wonderful wife did and that also was pretty slick.

With the other places still out there I think I'll hit this one up again, but still would like to get out and explore some more. A great place.

If you're in Vegas, I highly recommend Burger Bar. This place is incredible. Their beer list is HUGE. I had a very hard time deciding what to drink as there were so many that I wanted to try.

Besides their beers, this place is also famous for their burgers. With 50 or so different toppings to choose from, the combinations are endless. I decided to splurge and go with lobster on my burger and was not disappointed. Everything I've eaten here has been awesome.

Their waitresses are also pretty amazing. Not only are they great to look at, but they're also extremely knowledgable of the beers they serve.

Definitely check this place out. You won't regret it.

First off, this place was excellent for many different reasons. 1. The staff was very knowledgeable about the 25 or so different beers they had on tap. Very friendly, great place to eat. 2. The burgers you could top with almost any topping every thought of. Fried egg. No problem. 3. The price, in comparison to the rest of Las Vegas standards, is very reasonable. 20 dollars gets you a burger, a beer, very generous amount of fries and great service. The place probably had room for only 150 people or so, so it didn't get overly crowded. Loved it. We were out there for 5 nights, 6 days, and we ate there 4 times. I cant wait to get back out there next year.

My wife and I went there twice this week. The burgers were excellent (I had the Kobe beef one twice and was very happy with it, though the wheat roll the second time was stale), as were the sides (fries, onion rings, etc.). We split a milkshake that was the most decadent I've had.

Service was great the first time, borderline indifferent the second. Odd because it was busier the first time.

Of note were the beer prices: many of the American drafts were $6/pint, very reasonable for Las Vegas, and Belgians went up to a max of $14 for a 9 oz. pour. Bottle selection was varied, but we stuck to drafts. There were a few West Coast beers that were new to me, a few Las Vegas locals (the Sin City Amber was better than I expected), and any place that has Lagunitas Brown Shugga on tap is fine in my book.

If I were to go back to Vegas (unlikely, but a story for another time), I would definitely go back.

Stayed at Mandalay Bay for a convention. After reading about this place went with a couple other co-workers to check out the beer list. A couple hours later we were still sitting at the bar trying as much beer that we could from the west coast. Bartender was very knowledgeable and did a great job showing us some of the more rare beer. Of course those bottles were pretty pricey, however the draft and some of the bottles weren't to bad for being on the strip. For what we drank I'm pretty sure he gave us a few beers for free. Had a larger amount of bottles to choose from and a good selection on tap.

We ended up going back to eat there everyday we were in Vegas. Burgers were awesome. A little expensive but well worth the visit in. We had a great experience every time we went in the Burger Bar from the service to the beer. Will definitely be going back for at least a beer and burger next time in Vegas.

I usually dont visit the strip on my days off but I had to after hearing about this place. It's located in Mandalay place, which is situated between the Mandalay Bay and the Luxor.

It was a nice looking bar, clean and modern. They had a very nice bottle list, including some reserve releases such as Parabola. The beer was pricey, but expected for being on the strip. The burgers were good and service was great.

Overall a great place to eat and have a good beer if price doesn't bother you too much.

In Vegas for work, I decided to pop in to the Burger Bar. It's in a mall that is attached to Mandalay Bay. I expected it to be fancier with a celebrity chef owner, not that that is a bad thing. There is a big bar where I sat, tables, tvs, etc. The beer selection is good although I expected more west-coast specials and hard-to-finds. They have all the Belgians, Lambics, Unibroue, many DFH offerings, some locals, New Belgiams, a list of vintage selections plus more. The food here is great. I had he Hubert Keller burger for $20. It was incredible (not for everyday, but worth it as an extravagance). The bartenders were great and attentive. I'll be back.

Located in the mall area between Mandalay Bay and Luxor, Burger Bar is a smallish restaurant with the vibe of a mid 20th century steakhouse... wooden tables, chairs and booths with a stone topped bar with minimal decor.

The beer menu is fantastic for the location with craft offerings from all over the country, not just the west coast. The draft list contains many fresh and local craft options as well as others from across the country. The bottle menu is dominated by craft beers with a small "vintage" list including the last 3 FSW anniversary beers. Felt funny to see a big DFH promotion 2,500 miles from DE.

The burger menu offers a hanful of cuts of meat and bun options and about a page worth of topping options. The burgers were fantastic, cooked perfectly to how you ordered. All the ingredients were top notch, no wilted veggies or unflavorful cheeses.

Would have returned more often if I actually had a tendency to eat more than just little plates throughout the day rather than a full meal when im on vacation.

While my rating of Burger Bar is based solely on the beer, first I have to make a comment about the food. The Surf & Turf burger (a lobster tail and asparagus burger) was simply the best burger I've ever had in my life. Try it. I may go back for another!

Back to the beer. Okay to good selection of taps, good to very good selection of bottles. All using correct glassware as far as I can tell and with a few cool beer related items hanging up on the wall. I had a Saison from tap and enjoyed it quite a bit.

The service was very, very good and fast as hell. Definitely worth going back. Soon.

The restaurant is located in the walkway/shopping area between the Luxor and the Mandalay Bay hotels (called Mandalay Place). If you're in either hotel, or THEHotel, you can get to it easily without setting a foot outside. Any other hotel is easy enough, either through the tram, or you can walk if you can brave the heat or it's winter.

There's a bar the length of the restaurant (the place is rather thin) with a good amount of seating, and TVs to watch which I assume mostly have sports on. There are also tables and booths.

The beer selection really surprised me, with a good tap selection and an awesome bottle selection. I'm not sure how many people actually decided to go for the craft beer though, so there may be lower turnover. I did see a Pumpkin Ale in a bottle (this was in July), so I'm guessing a lot of beer sits in the fridge for a while.

The burgers are really good, as it's their specialty.

Good service and friendly. The prices are a little higher but it is Vegas, so it's expected.

Overall, a place to hit if you're on the south end of the Strip.

I am Here now reviewing from iPhone. Great food. Beer selection is best I've seen in Vegas. I had a 90 min, a chimay white label, a sublimely self righteous, and a delirium tremens on tap and a great burger with guacamole cheddar and afried egg. Service is good at bar (where I am sitting). There ate lots of people here and for good reason this is the best burger and best beer in Vegas. I am about to refill with the next round so sso long farewell. I've just found I must make up a few more words to finish this review

Ate alone at the bar on Tues, 5/25/10 around 9:00pm.

Greeted by Julia, the bartender. She was everything you could want in a bartender starting with her friendly service and knowledge of the beer and ending with... well, let's keep this about the beer. The place was steady but not swamped, so she took time out to chat about beer a few times. I seemed to be the only BA-type there.

Looked over the taplist and was reasonably impressed. A solid lineup of 25 or so beers by most standards, exceptional for Vegas on-Strip. You can order two different full-size pours or put together a six-beer 5-oz sampler flight. I went for the latter:

-Sin City Amber (gotta try the local, even if it's not your favorite style)
-Grand Teton Bitch Creek ESB
-DFH 90-Minute
-SN 30th Anniversary (Ken & Fritz)
-Stone IRS (2010, tapped just two days before)
-St. Louis Framboise

Ordered the "Country Natural" beef for my burger. I kept it simple with a sesame seed bun, pepper jack, and A-1, but you can build your own from a list of almost any topping you can imagine or choose from a handful of pre-defined setups.

While I was waiting, I looked at the bottle list and briefly regretted my decision to go for the taps. The bottle lineup is outstanding. I can't even begin to name them all, but a few things stand out, just because of their Vegas-like extravagance. They have FW 11, 12, and 13. You can buy 12 and 13 solo, but 11 is only available as part of a vertical of all three that requires three adults and $200. Pricey, but it would be a fun splurge if you have a group of BAs for a weekend trip. Overall though, most of the bottle prices seemed pretty reasonable for restaurant service and, once again, *very* reasonable for Vegas. Markup on singles was about 100-125% and bombers around 75-100%.

The burger arrived perfectly cooked (pink through-and-through medium). By then I'd finished the Framboise, the Sin City, and the Bitch Creek. It paired nicely with the 90-Min and both stouts. Sweet potato fries accompanied.

This is the place to go for a burger and craft on the Strip. Pour 24 (@ NY NY) doesn't have food and the Burger Brasserie (@ Paris) has crap beer (and neither the burger nor the service were as good.)

What a strange place to put a beer bar, on the shopping walkway between the Mandalay and the Luxor resort complexes.

We (my wife and I) sat on the bar corner as you walk in, most tables were full and the bar stools well populated on an early Monday evening in May. The fridge in front of me had beers calling to be bought (Deus, etc, etc), but I'm here for the beers on tap I can't get in Europe.

My wife, bless her, orders a Pabst Blue Ribbon, I fall off my bar stool but recover in time to ask for a Grand Teton Bitch Creek ESB without losing too much street cred. I don't think anyone else heard her order. I then had beers from Kona, Pyramid and Ommegang, all from the taps. Too full for any food, pity, everybody else seemed to be enjoying theirs.

Friendly staff who let us get on with our drinking, attentive, but not obtrusive, helpful when asked and appeared knowledgable.

I would never have set foot in the place if it wasn't for this site, as you'd just never guess the joys that it holds by looking at it from the passageway it sits on.

I only managed to slip in here a couple times on my trip to Las Vegas, but it was great little place. The beers I had were fantastic. Being able to pick my own flights was nice, minimum 6, and they seemed to be priced reasonably. The bartender even placed them in proper order, aka least intense flavor to most intense, which was nice to see. Finally had my first taste of Murphy's stout on tap, soooo good. I also had a nice comparison between two hoppy beers, Dogfish head 90 Min and Grand Teton Bitch Creek. Both very good but I prefered the Bitch Creek. Never did get through their whole list, but that is for another trip. The food smelled and looked amazing, but all I had was beer, maybe next time.

I am almost as much of a foodie as I am a beer geek. But it was the food that attracted me to Burger Bar...and Chef Hubert Keller, also of upscale (and, thank you chef, a small but thoughtful beer list for a French restaurant) Fleur de Lys. This was the chef on Top Chef Masters who, in the dorm room challenge, cooled pasta in a shower. He won that episode and finished third.

Anyway...Burger Bar has some excellent burgers. I was really happy with the food. Had a Kobe burger with caramelized onion, bleu cheese, and peppered bacon on ciabatta.

For a non-beer focused place, this has a very good beer list. Couple that with being in Las Vegas, and it is a downright oasis. Good selection of Dogfish (e.g., Palo Santo on tap!), Sierra (had XXXth Anniversary on tap), Firestone Walker (do a 11th-12th-13th anniversary (22 oz. btl each) tasting for $200 min. 3 people). Nice selection of Belgians: Deus (!), Orval (great with a burger), Chimay, Piraat, etc. Quebec's Unibroue and New Belgium also abundant.

I would call this a must-go for anyone visiting Vegas.

So much has been said about Burger Bar that I had to convince my two friends to come here with me.

Looks and feel like a resto-bar without all that casino noise and smoke, which was a nice thing during out stay. The booths have a very intimate feel, and they even have TV's for each booth! On the walls are beer memorabilia and collections of beer coasters.

The tap selection is acceptable for a beer geek, though not earth shattering. The bottle selection, however, is noteworthy. They have a lot of Trappist beers in the bottle, also some BCS, The Abyss, and Firestone 11, 12, and 13. My friend got a Haywire Hefe, while I got a DFH Indian Brown from the bottle. I got a tulip glass to pour my beer into, and my beer wasn't served too cold, so big props to Burger Bar for correct serving temperature.

Service was acceptable, though I would have liked to have been checked on a little more often as I was still deciding on a beer. I take a long time to decide on beer, and even after our food order had been taken, I was still deciding. Then when I had a decision, it wasn't until our food came out 15 minutes later that I could finally put in my beer order. That's why I prefer to sit at the bar.

Oh yes, the burger. It's freggin awesome. Nuff said! Too bad the sweet potato fries were overcooked.

It's kind of pricey, so I'd come here for a great burger and a great beer. Even the beer alone should get you over any craft beer withdrawls while gambling in Vegas.

Okay...you are in Las Vegas and realize that every restaurant and bar has the same old beer, not good. Well do yourself a favor and go to the Burger Bar located in Mandalay Place (which is inside Mandalay Bay). It is the only place on the strip which has any respect for good beer. It has 24 beers on tap, some are excellent and some are horrible. Stone and DFH on tap so atleast you know some are good. LOTS of bottles available including some of the best selections in the world. The bottom line is that if you are a beer advocate (which you obviously are if you are reading this) and you find yourself in Vegas, then this is the place to go! On top of their selection, their bartenders are excellent. Once one of the bartenders realized I was a beer freak (Julia) she gave me free "tastes" of some really awesome beers where she and I split a beer. I didn't try their food yet, not really important, it's all about the beer.

Visited on November 4 (I believe, I didn't write the date down)

I'll try to make this short and sweet because there's not a whole lot to say that is beyond what the other reviewers have said.

Atmosphere was dark and a bit noisy, but that's to be expected at lunchtime at a high-quality restaurant/bar. I dug the seating and lighting setups.

Food and beer were both delicious. If you're a vegetarian, fear not - they have a burger or two for us and the one I had was quite good. I ordered a DFH Palo Santo Marron to go with it. The beer was spectacular but that' can't be attributed to the bar now, can it?

The service was a little slow and the ladies weren't wearing a whole lot. It's great for the single dudes out there who love to ogle but for those of us who like to keep the eyes on the prize (the wife is the prize, by the way), it's a little off-putting - especially when not all of the waitress-ladies have the appropriate dimensions for their selected clothing choices. Not a big deal, the lack of fabric probably works to their advantage most of the time and a happy waitress will work faster and be more pleasant. Upon re-reading that paragraph, I sound like a jackass. Forgive me, but heed my warnings your fellow restaurant-goer is concerned with those sorts of things.

The beer selection is the best I've seen. Of course, I've not been too many places (I'm prairie land-locked up here in ND) but the selection was quite good compared to what I imagine a lot of places to have.

Food, as I mentioned earlier, was fantastic. No extra comment needed in that department.

The prices were a bit higher than I was hoping for but I feel like the price-to-quality ratio is better than I get most other places.

So, it turns out this review wasn't as short as I initially thought it was going to be. Let that be a testament to how good this place is. I couldn't leave it brief, the Burger Bar is too good.

Overall a decent place but I really expected better from an eatery/bar in Mandalay Bay Casino. Very good burger and worth every penny of the $20 I spent on it. Cooked to perfection, well presented and with excellent ingredients . So what's the problem?
The service was ok for Fridays style place but the servers have little to NO understanding of the beers they are serving.

Averageish selection Dogfishhead and Chimay abounded (YAWN), I figured in a town that is know to have some of the best of everything they could have done better. Taps beer was good tasting, I had the 90 minute. I settled on this after they could not find the other two bottled beers I requested.

Do n't get me wrong if you want a great burger joint that happens to have a good beer selection then this is the place. If you want a great beer bar that happens to have great burgers then move on to another spot.
