Lani's Express at the Fremont was the downtown spot that Zin had suggested to me on a previous trip to Vegas. I can still taste the little afterburps even yet today and it makes me a little misty as I stare southwest wondering when my next trip to Vegas will be....

Where da heck is the Royal Resort? 99 Convention Center Drive, the road that leads into the Las Vegas Convention Center. It's walking distance from Circus Circus, Riviera, Wynn, and Encore. The Royal Resort is, uh, nothing special. But they're trying to spiff it up, and the Barrymore restaurant is the best part of their efforts.
They offer the standard stuff (steaks, lobster, salmon) as well as some fancier items (pork belly, seared foie gras) at prices that are 20-30% below Strip restaurants without little to no sacrifice in quality. If you're just getting the burger, you can go any day of the week. If you're having something else, go Wed thru Sat. It seems like the 2nd-string is in Sun/Mon/Tue.

I also had an excellent burger from BLT at Mirage late Thursday night. I will eat at both places again. I want the Farm burger at BurGR and the Kobe sliders at BLT. Damn, my mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Now before you fall out of your chair laughing, understand what I learned about the place. First of all, the really "bad-for-you" about the place starts if you add bacon to the burgers--at 5 slices per beef patty. I passed on those (and believe me, passing on bacon is just, well, wrong). Second, all the burgers are actually chili cheeseburgers. But not slathered in chili like you usually see them, where you have to eat them with a fork. No, I found out not only is it not canned chili, it's fresh and locally made. And they put an amount on the burger that's about equal to a thick slice of tomato, so you can still eat the burger "normally."
I went with the double burger both times. The beef was good, the burger was stacked with all the right veggies, and it was on a tasty bun that was just the right size. It was tasty and satisfying.
But the best part? For a double cheeseburger, fries, and a "real" Coke (the only serve "Mexican" (real sugar) Coke in bottles, just the best way to drink Coke hands down), the total came to an even $15, not all all bad for Vegas.
The atmosphere itself is quite cheesy. The bartender is in full doctor garb, complete with stethoscope. The waitresses are all dresses a nurse's uniforms--but with the requisite Vegas-style short skirts. You wear a hospital gown over your clothes to enter and eat. And if you do not finish your meal, you get paddled by one of the waitresses--and I suspect more than a few customers deliberately don't finish specifically to have that particular experience. Yet despite all that, the burgers were not only quite good, they were worth a return trip.

Now I want to see what Mario Batali does with his new place that will open later this year.

For a simpler burger ..... the Mushroom Swiss Burger at the Big Horn Casino on E. Lake Mead in N. Las Vegas.
