We went at 12:30 p.m. on a Friday. Obviously a popular place since it was packed. Had to wait about 20 minutes to get a table.

Place is located in the walkway, so not exactly a lovely setting. It does have a decent size bar [+/- 30 people] and some tables & booths. Not a huge place. Between the loud music and the packed house, the bar was quite noisy. A very frenetic feel to it. Lots of TV's over the bar area. They also have beer paraphenalia all along the walls.

Beer: Very nice tap/bottle selection for a burger joint. Probably around 25 on tap and an equal amount of bottles. A sampling includes: Sin City [$5.50) Chimay ($9), Fat Tire, Stella, Sapporo, Dos Equis. Bottles: Peroni, Deschuttes, Duvel, Franziskaner, Coopers.

I had a Brimberger and it was served in the appropriate glassware. Can't argue with that.

Food is the basics: burgers, sandwhiches. The burges come with a wide variety of toppings that you can choose from. We had the Black Angus burger with a side of onion rings. This burger was as good as I've ever had. Very delicious. Rings were also good.

Service was very friendly, attentive and always smiling. Served our beer quickly and noticed the small details [replaced our ketchup when it was running low, etc.].

Not a very cheap place, but the quality is worth it. I would definitely go back when I'm in Vegas.

I recently attended a convention held at the Mandalay Bay Casino and one of my buddies noticed that a restaurant located in the shopping arcade between Mandalay Bay and the Luxor had some rare beers on tap. We visited the Burger Bar after working the show and were tired and in need of refreshment. To my delight, they had Chimay Triple on draft as well as Grimbergen. We had both of them over the next three days and really were very happy. The service was good, the servers friendly, and when they were changing out the kegs of Chimay Triple, instead of pouring the foam down the drain, they let us drink the beer for free.

We got ripped. We were very happy.

A- First lets take note that there is plenty very attractive mid to early 20 year old females working there. Nice color scheme, bigger than it looks from out front. Every booth has a TV built into. Very laid back, clean, and quiet for a burger joint in a casino. It gets busy but its still possible to have a conversation with yelling.

Q- Beer was served in apporiate glassware, some even in the brewers glassware. Just a well taken care of place that looks like that take pride in what they are doing.

S- it was saturday evening and it only took us 5 mintues to get a table for nine people. Very impressive. Food was ordered just as ordered and was out relavtively quick. Only problem was that the waiter was almost nonexistent. Most of the we had to flag him down for refills, another beer, and even the check.

S- very nice selection. 24 taps and probably 20 bottles selections. Out of the 24 taps, no macros. That were some familiar taps, i think newcastle probably being the most recognizable (ended my dinner with one, yummy). Other than that they had SNPA, anchor steam, sin city light &amber, lindemans raspberry, dos equis amber, bass, boddingtons, among others. For bottles there were some macros, two samuel smiths, samuel adams and others.
I went with Sin City Amber, Anchor Steam, and Newcastle. All were very good. Escpecially the Sin City.

F- Food was as delicous as could of been. The only problem was that the portions were way to small for what you pay for. Very Very Yummy though. The menu is huge.

V- best way to put this is expensive and at times over priced. Beers were expensive starting at $5.50 for a pint with the most expensive being $7.50 for 9oz of lindemans raspberry. The food was overpriced. Good food, but you really should be getting more with what it cost.

I'm experiencing a certain inability to leave the blackjack tables. The sweet songs of the autoshuffler onetwosix sirens are steering me towards the rocks to the tune of at least 4 bills now. I have to get the hell out of here for something sustanance soon and I seem to remember readin' about the Burger Bar at Mandalay Place. It's got to be around here somewhere but I can't see past the dirty slot machines...
Having finally escaped the tables briefly for a beer and a bite, we trudged through Mandalay Place, a strip of pricey stores and more connecting Mandalay Bay and the Luxor, and found the Burger Bar. It's dinerish like only a place in an upscale casino can be. A marble topped angled bar seats a dozen to the left and 10 booths run the wall to the right with 8 tables in the middle of the room. To the rear of the room, the bar continues straight back seating another dozen with 5 tables and 5 booths sitting adjacent. Angled walls, sectioned pressed tin ceiling with chandaliers and spotlights, and framed coaster displays above the bar. The bar back holds booze on the shelves and 4 flat screens above them with small nooks holding a Chimay magnum and colored seltzer bottles. A Newcastle mirror and a bunch of framed French/Belgian beer ads. It's a decent enough place except for the loud shitty club music.
24 taps. 2 towers of 12 each at different ends of the front bar. New Belgium Fat Tire, Pyramid Snow Cap & Hefe, Chimay White, Anchor Steam, Blue Moon, Sin City Amber & Light, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, and then the standard crappy macro imports. They also carry roughly 18 bottles, a handful of them are worthwhile (Sam Smith Taddy Porter & Organic Ale, PU, Fischer Amber, Sam Adams Lager) but mostly not.
The food menu is all about the burger. You can choose from a good variety of toppings (cheeses, meats, vegetables and more). Who would order the lobster as a topping, I wondered. Opted not for the $60 Kobe burger with foie gras & truffles, but rather the $15 Angus burger, gone all mad bacon cheddar on a whole wheat bun, yeah with onion, it's crazy, I know (Hey, what happens in Vegas...). it was a marvelous damn burger. Enough so, that having briefly escaped the casino again 2 days later, we did a revisit for another burger and a Fat Tire.
Not a destination place by any means unless you need a little down time away from the tables, and you're hankering for a great burger and an easy beer.

I read some of the Beer Fly reviews prior to my Vegas trip, and thought I'd check it out.

The place was quite crowded for a weekday afternoon, but me, my wife and my son were able to score a booth which had an LCD screen tuned in to ESPN.

The place has a funky sort of vibe - most of the waitresses had mulitple piercings, dyed hair, and tattoos, but were very friendly and efficient. The music changed from hip-hop to jazz to swing to bubble gum all in the 1hr+ time we were there.

Ever dreamed of having a $60.00 burger? Well this is your place to have a Kobe beef burger with foie gras and truffles. On more of a budget? This place also offers Angus burgers and choice beef that you can pile with a bunch of toppings of your choice...and you can also pick the type of roll.

On to the beer selection - probably about 15-20 or so decent taps. I went with the Sin City and an Anchor Steam, both seemed pretty fresh.

Probably not worth a special trip, but if you're in the Mandalay Bay/Luxor area, it's worth checking out for a quick lunch.

These upscale casinos all have their obligatory upscale shopping areas and Burger bar is found between Luxor and Mandalay bay. I love these fancy hotels. They are so clean, new and just plain pretty to look at.

So.. burger bar has a diner look and feel to it but a very nice/expensive diner. Spotless inside with many servers to attend to everyone's needs quickly. The beer selection was somewhat unimpressive. Yeah they had a lot of 'em, but nothing that I don't see in Boston fairly regularly. They had some breweries represented that are a little more unusual but they had styles by them that I wasnt in the mood for. I got a Sin City amber or something and after having the sample , I liked it, but after downing a pint, there was no way I would want another. My wife had pear cider which was pretty good.

My wife and I split a kobe burger and sweet potato fries. It was real good but I have had kobe beef before and prefer it as a steak rather than burger. Food overall was excellent though. The bartender was extremely pleasant and right on top of her game. It is somewhat expensive as the burger was like $15 and the pints were a tad over $5 I believe. I don't mind paying a little extra for a beautiful environment, good quality food and beer and excellent service though. Yeah, I'll be back at this place again and probably every LV trip from now on.

I made my way back to Las Vegas and one of my first stops was to Return to the Burger Bar at Mandalay Place. The beer selection has not changed since my previous review (Fat Tire, Sunshine Wheat, Sin City Amber,McEwan's, and Chimay White).

The main reason for my return was to have the "Rossini Burger" and it was all the I expected. The Kobe beef was incredibly flavorful and juicy. Topping it was the seared Foie Gras and shaved Black Truffles. The Mediera sauce was on the side. Without a doubt it was the best and most expensive burger I've ever had.

I will be back on my next sojourn out west.
