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.

I would not waste your time trekking to this place if you're not already staying at Mandalay. After reading some reviews about strip craft beer places, I made the effort to get here from MGM, about a mile walk, not a huge thing. Was not worth it at all. The tap list was meh. It might be better at other times, but most of it was your typical wanna be craft from familiar sources, with a couple decent brews interspersed. The best brew on the list was Dogfish 90 minute. After that, had a local IPA from Joseph James, it was so so. Last, I decided to pull from the bottle list and had Stone IPA. They a few nice beers in their cellar but unless you're cool with paying 60 for a Sucaba, you won't be touching them. The service while sitting at the bar was terrible, one bartender who was constantly pooring drinks for the wait staff and didn't give a hoot about anything else. Food could have been decent, nice burgers. After a long wait, being served a cold burger and flaming hot onion rings did it for me. Not coming back. The Pub at Monte Carlo is the much better option. This place sucks....at least when I was there. Sitting down at a table might give you better service too.

An excellent selection of beers, very well organized on the menu, both on tap and in bottles. great prices for outstanding beers. Being from the east coast, there is a wide selection of beers that I normally can't get. To top if off, the burgers are fantastic.
