Giant burgers in Las Vegas? Wed, 05/18/05 8:12 PM (permalink)
Hi everyone,I'm taking a trip to Las Vegas next month,and remember seeing a show on the Food network about this really giant cheeseburger available in town,but unfortunately I can't remember the name of the place. I'm talking a huge,like 8 or 10-pound burger or so...does anyone have any idea what I'm talking about? I think it would be a fun experience,hopefully someone can help me out! Thanks!

    I don't know about any giant burgers in Las Vegas, but at Denny's Beer Barrel Pub in Clearfield, Pennsylvania you can get the Denny's Beer Barrel Belly Buster at 15 pounds, with 10.5 pounds of meat, 25 slices of cheese, a head f lettuce, three tomatoes, two onions, a cup-and-a-half each of mayonnaise, relish, catsup, mustard and banana peppers.

    And you don't have to worry about losing money at the tables.

      I saw that same show and I don't remember it either. Did you ever figure out what restaurant it is. I am suprised I can't find it online easily.

        There's a Reilley's Pub in the Summerlin area that has great burgers and I think this was the one on the show. It's on Buffalo Road, 1200 block (?). When we were there, we didn't notice the large burgers, but Reilley's had won the best in Vegas a few years in a row. If you can't find it or if it's too far away, there's always In and Out.

          I may a little late in replying but, I think you are talking about the Big Daddy Burger at the Upper Deck in The Las Vegas Club Casino. I saw it on the Travel Channel on Taste of America with Mark DeCarlo.

                    I always stop at a 19x19. Oh, and a small diet coke.

                        That Big Daddy Burger a "stunt burger" to split among a bunch of people, but their regular burgers are good too. There are plenty of other places to get a good burger Downtown or on the Strip. I've heard the best burger in town is at Kilroy's, a bar at Buffalo and Charleston, but have never tried it.

                          Looks like something I'd take on a three day hiking trip ! And bring home leftovers.
