Nice juicy burger, bunch of fries and one refill on lemonade. I was full. Good meal but In-N-Out gets my nod on price and taste when ordered animal style. I'm not a fan of In-N-Out fries.

As for price it may be cheaper if I ordered a little burger at Five Guys. Thing is the Animal style is good.
I used to feel the same about the In-N-Out fries. Order them well done. Big big difference.

In-and-Out will stay in business because it is good for cheap food.

Not everyone wants to drop $15-20 on lunch.

Has anyone tried BLT Burger (Bistro Laurent Tourondel)? It is on my list but I haven't gotten to it yet. They have an "American Wagyu" burger on the menu (but that makes me wonder if it is a triumph of advertising over tastebuds)

Bachi Burger has the same kind of wagyu. Definitely marketing, but it's still delicious to me.

"American Wagyu" is essentially fraud. That means, "American Japanese Cow." Wa is Japan. Gyu means cow. Wa-gyu = Japan-cow. I have a knife called a gyuto. Gyu = cow. To = knife. So basically what we have, if you can believe the restaurant at all, is a breed of Japanese cattle, raised in the United States. Let's hope that Texan geisha girls are giving the American Japanese Cows daily massages and feeding them beer. Because otherwise people are spending a great deal of money for an utter fabrication.

If any restaurant in Las Vegas asks you for a lot of money in exchange for real-deal Japanese beef, ask them for the snout-print certificate. It's like a fingerprint, except with the cow's nose. And it had better be recent. There is a black market in Japanese beef certificates.

The legit places will gladly show it to you -- and there are only a handful of them. Everyone else is ripping you off, big time.

Have enjoyed the sincity burger and the mushroom truffle swiss here over some $20 burgers elsewhere as well as that over-hyped FUKU burger crap.

Well, this article is due for a re-write. Especially with White Castle getting ready to burst onto the scene and really shakeup the LV burger landscape. I easily see White Castle heading the list within six months of opening. I've even stocked up on toilet paper in preparation.

That's kind of like saying that bringing Mr. Pibb to Las Vegas is going to shake up the soda pop landscape.

I don't have high hopes for White Castle. Everyone who has commented says, "They're good when you're wasted." That does not inspire confidence.
