BLT Burger (Mirage) – Lamb’n It Up With Some Waffle Fries

by Franklin on December 9, 2011

The burger in it of itself is a classic.  More than a sandwich, it is a complete meal all in the grasp of your hands.  It is safe to say that everyone has had a lot of burgers in their life time — it is a go to item at any restaurant.  BLT Burger, located at the Mirage is a popular burger spot.  Known for their grass fed, Certified Angus Beef (CAD), their patties are amongst the freshest.

The Tex Mex Burger was a messy one, but still good.  The spiciness from the jalapenos and salsa weren’t really noticeable.  Probably because I like spicy food really spicy.  The messy part, the chili, was made with corn and beans.  The avocado, jack cheese, and sour cream made this burger very rich and creamy. Almost everything you’d find in a nacho was inside this burger.  And speaking of nachos, they offer that one the menu.  It looked good, but opted for the fries instead.

The fries were very good, especially the waffle fries.  It was crispy and perfectly seasoned.  Even after cooling off, it still remained crunchy somehow. As for the sweet potato fries, that was a different story.  They were somewhat soggy and not warm when it came to the table.  The waffle fries are the way to go here.

My favorite burger here wasn’t made of beef, but lamb.  The Lamb tandoori burger was made with Colorado lamb.  That is a good thing I assume.  Mint cilantro yogurt sauce, cucumber, olives, red onion, tomato topped this burger and complimented the meat very well. I usually don’t like the taste of lamb as it is too gamey, but this one was just right — not too gamey and the flavors of the meat and yogurt sauce went really well together.  If the bun wasn’t cold, this burger would have been perfect.

Of course, every burger needs a milkshake.  We ordered the nut job milkshake.  This was their version of the Nutella shake.  It had vanilla ice cream, Nutella, and slivered almonds. I wanted to compare this Nutella shake with the one from Burger Bar in Mandalay Bay.  Without a doubt, the one from Burger Bar is far superior.  The  Nutella flavor wasn’t prevalent enough at the one from BLT.  At times, I couldn’t even taste the Nutella.

BLT Burger had solid burgers.  Some were classic, and the specialty burgers were great.  Knowing what to order, one can find a tasty burger.  They have the classic BLT burger (of course), to other sides, and even alcoholic shakes. The decor is nice and relaxing.  If they worked around their little kinks, this could be one of my favorite burger joints in Vegas.
