We visit Gordon Ramsay’s BurGR in Planet Hollywood on the Las Vegas Strip. We’ve heard good things, and are excited to see if it lives up to its word of mouth.
Our Review of Gordon Ramsay BurGR’s Bleu Burger
Gordon Ramsay’s partnership with Caesar’s Entertainment includes his BurGR, located in Planet Hollywood on the Vegas Strip. We’d heard good things about BurGR and for our first visit we ordered the Bleu Burger. The Burger comes topped with Maytag blue cheese and arugula. We paired it with an order of truffle Parmesan fries.
Tasting the Burger
The burger came unevenly done. It was far more medium than medium rare, and was closer to medium well in spots. It left the patty distinctly dry and a bit mealy. The patty itself was on the smaller side and the beef wasn’t bursting with flavor. It was an average patty, especially for the price and the high standard set by other Vegas burger restaurants.
The Maytag blue cheese was excellent, very sharp and tangy. It was definitely the highlight of the burger. The bun was a fancy take on the classic sesame seed bun. It was toasted, but a bit dry. Combined with the drier, overcooked patty, the overall feel on the palate was underwhelming.
The fries were good, with a strong, flavorful Parmesan. The cheese may even be a bit too strong, since the truffle oil was a bit overwhelmed. The fries were thin, but not overly crispy, and maintained a soft potato fluffiness that we consider essential for thin fries. The portion was on the smaller size.
- Gordon Ramsay BurGR’s Bleu Burger was acceptable, but disappointing after such strong word of mouth: B-.
- The fries were good, a solid entry into the Parmesan and truffle oil trend: A-.
- Overall the meal was underwhelming, especially considering the strength of competition in Las Vegas: B
- The burger and fries cost well over $20, expensive, even for Las Vegas. The cost-adjusted grade is B-
