Burger Stop #1: Pub 1842 @ the MGM Grand

 ** Gastropub in its purest form, Pub 1842 is a casual dining option serving up gourmet pub fare. Decent beer selection. Food was great but prices are inflated due to being inside the MGM hotel.**

1842 Burger served with side of fries

1842 Burger ($17): caramelized onions, mushrooms, truffle aioli. I don't know if my brain went into overload from all the tofu cakes I've been feeding it,  but damn, this was the best burger I've ever had. Bun was buttery, patty was juicy, plenty of mushrooms and onions. It was great. It was served with BBQ flavored fries, which I thought was overkill, next time I'll ask for fries without the BBQ seasoning. You need the fries to cut the salt and grease of the burger.

Brian got the DOUBLE SMOKED BACON ($18): smoked gouda, American cheese, lettuce, secret sauce, bacon & bacon. It was really greasy. It tasted good but it was not for me. The double bacon and double cheese was too much and the delicious patty got lost in all the grease. I can't imagine the salt content of this dish with the fries, yuck.

17.5 glass of Guinness cost $10. Ouch.

Overall, I really liked this place, it's a creative menu and my favorite burger in Las Vegas. I want to come back and try all their burgers, such as the Peanut Butter burger and their Korean Salmon burger. Being on the Strip makes it a drag for locals but it could be a convenient stop before a show.
