Gordon Ramsay BURGR Las Vegas is located in Planet Hollywood

It has been almost a year and a half since the opening of Gordon Ramsay BURGR at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. I have visited the restaurant on two separate visits to write this review. The first time was soon after it’s opening in early 2013 and the second time was in February 2014.  Gordon Ramsay’s Type A  television persona for perfection matched reality when I visited Gordon Ramsay Steak the year priorbut does he have the chops to operate a successful gourmet $20 burger joint? Let’s find out my readers, I gain weight for your knowledge. 

 

Gordon Ramsay BURGR Las Vegas - Conundrum

Temptation, Gluttony and tough decisions are the 1st world problems you will face in Gordon Ramsay’s BURGR Las Vegas

 

Location and Interior

Gordon Ramsay BURGR is located at Planet Hollywood resort, just off the Las Vegas Blvd entrance. The restaurant is easy to spot, just look for the glass wall filled with hundreds burning torches, illuminating the dinning room in a fiery glow. When you walk into BURGR, you are entering Gordon Ramsay’s underworld of burger culture. Inside you have the opportunity  to experience one of the more unique burgers I have tasted, selling your soul is not required.

Gordon Ramsay Burgr Menu

The menu, as you guessed it, is mostly burgers of different varieties including beef burgers like the Euro burger  made with goat’s cheese, Britannia burger made with cheddar and chutney and the Spicy Hell’s Kitchen Burger. The burger menu also features chicken, fish and vegetarian options. I am not going to bother mentioning the salads. If you have a ” Burger Veto” member in your party, tell them to meet up with you after dinner.

What we ordered

The Hog Burger

The Hog Burger is BURGR’s Signature dish and it is unorthodox to me as it is delicious. The Hog Burger is made with ground Mangalitsa pork, English sharp cheddar, apple butter, arugula and served on a black and white sesame studded brioche bun. This burger is now on my Top 10 Favorite Burger List.

What in the hell is Mangalista pork you may be asking, I had the same reaction. Mangalista is a rare breed of pigs that are hard to find in the United States. Gordon Ramsay BURGR sources it from Mosefund Farms, the only place to get this meat on this side of the Mississippi. These are heirlooms pigs that were originally raised for the Austro-Hungarian Empire royalty. The pigs are raised in open pastures and graze on grass and clovers and finished on Barley, thus providing a rich and unique taste.

This isn’t your Mama’s pork patty;  this burger is juicy and legit. I honestly forgot I was eating pork as I sucked down the burger in less than five minutes flat. The ground pork was incredibly rich in flavor that stood up to the sharp cheddar and nutty arugula. The apple butter was the magic pixie dust that added a constant sweet note that cut through the umami flavors of the meat, cheeese, and brioche bun. This burger is pure happiness.  $18 / $17 (with Planet Hollywood Rewards)

 

The Farm Burger

The Farm Burger is what you would expect from any of the high-end burger joints trying to assemble all of the most carnal of toppings into a single burger. The Farm burger is made with a beef patty,  duck breast bacon, English sharp cheddar and a fried egg. $15/14

 The meat blend in the burger itself is very delicious and juicy. For the love of whatever god you pray too, please do not order this burger anything more than medium, it will destroy the flavor of the burger. I really liked the rich flavor of the duck break bacon against the egg and beef. There are no vegetables or greens in this burger, just carnal enjoyment. 

 

Truffle Parmesan Fries

BUGR uses Kennebec potatoes, which are less starchy and fry up more crispy. The potatoes are hand cut and fried extra to give them a crispy exterior. The Truffle Parmesan Fries are topped with truffle parmesan and truffle salt.  The fries provide a full mouth savory experience.

I really liked the crispy texture of the fries against my tongue. On the downside, too much truffle anything can get old after a while. I suggest you ask for their specialty ketchup on the side to keep things fresh. $11 / $10

Pudding Shake

Even though I was full from eating my Hog Burger and poaching half of my wife’s Farm Burger, I had to try the Pudding Shake. Half shake and half creamy pudding, this dessert appealed to my inner child by putting two of two childhood desserts into one cup.  I ordered  the #2, a Strawberry shake  and coconut pudding on top. Together they are magical. I liked the cool creamy shake texture against the almost satin pudding layer. I found myself raising my  wide-girth straw up and down to get the perfect combination of shake to pudding in my mouth. I am glad my wife wasn’t taking a video of that episode. The Pudding shake is topped with a chocolate cookie.  $9/8

My Final Thoughts

As far as gourmet burgers go, Gordon Ramsay’s BURGR, ranks as one of the best on my list. Where BURGR differentiates among other gourmet burger competitors is that they grill their burgers using only using  natural woods like apple and alder wood, thus providing unique flavors to the food. In addition, BURGR really did a great job at providing unique menu items like The Hog Burger, made with Mangalista pork or using duck breast bacon in the The Farm Burger. These little delighters add up to a unique experience. I left  Gordon Ramsay’s BURGR very happy….albeit uncomfortably full. 

 

Quick note about UrbanSpoon reviews: Some of the folks leaving bad reviews on yelp and urbanspoon might be expecting quality food , but at McDonald’s prices. To each their own.

Summary : Overall this is a great place to experience a Gourmet Burger in Las Vegas. I recommend it. If there is a really long line, I suggest you visit at a less peak time. There as been lines reported up to 2 hours; it is really good, but not that good.
