The Palazzo Resort adds another hit to their impressive line up of dinning venues. I LOVE BURGERS is now open and well worth a stop.

We have visited   i♥burgers literally from the first day they pulled pack to curtains for their soft opening.. They offer a unique a take on the classic American burger joint.

i♥burgers sets itself apart from the typical burger experience by providing premium gourmet burgers with creative toppings and sides. You  can choose from one of the many signature burgers ( we have had almost all of them ) featuring a variety of toppings, including farm-fresh vegetables, smoked meats and an array of cheeses. It also features the largest fry menu in Las Vegas, with options including truffle-butter tossed fried Yukon Gold potatoes, New York-style chips and baked potato fries.

Executive Chef/GM Errol LeBlanc, formerly of R.E. Tapas Kitchen and Aureole, explains, “At i♥burgers, I’ve had the opportunity to re-engineer the quintessential American dish. I made 16 different proprietary bun recipes before I got it right, I’m grinding our meats in-house because no one had the flavor and texture that I wanted, and I’ve experimented with more than 50 different fry variations to compose the best fry menu. Ever. Getting on this menu is harder than getting on the Olympic curling team: there’s no room for weak sauce.”

i♥burgers offers tasty food and great value in a fun and casual atmosphere. Every burger is a half-pound experience in taste, ranging from angus, sirloin and kobe to ahi tuna, turkey and buffalo. The family-friendly location is perfect for a quick lunch meeting or to enjoy a night with friends. i♥burgers also features a full-service ♥togo counter, allowing guests to take their deliciousness with them.

Our overall mouth watering favorite  is the i♥bacon burger, a half-pound burger made from our blend of sirloin and applewood-smoked bacon.  This very juicy , addicting burger topped with smoked gouda, crispy onion straws, applewood-smoked bacon and our house-made bacon aioli served on a buttery brioche bun, baked each morning exclusively for i♥burgers.

The restaurant also  offers one of the largest selections of domestic, imported and artisan beers on the Strip, including more than 15 varieties on draft. Head Mixologist Myke Ramos has created a drink menu featuring frosty homemade ice cream shakes, specialty cocktails and a variety of frozen beverages. One of the signature cocktails is the very spicy i♥ bloody mary, which boasts pork cracklins and apple-wood smoked bacon salt circling the rim. If you prefer sweet over savory, the Blueberry Panshake is breakfast in a glass  complete with  blueberry, maple syrup and freshly-made pancakes blended with homemade ice cream.

Myke Ramos, Head Mixologist stated “Unlike most cocktails on the Strip, my drinks don’t get their flavors from premade syrups and pre-infused liquors. We're focused on fresh ingredients and creating complex tastes organically,” We're carbonating exotic fruits, popping corn and flipping pancakes in the search of the perfect drink.”

Myke has put together a very impressive line up of Orangic Vodkas , Rums and liqueurs  that gives him the tools need to create cocktails that are truly "one of a kind " , limited only by his imagination.

The Palazzo Resort has so many great dining venues to choose from. But , If you are in the mood to experience a Burger or Fresh salad   along with an interesting drink , i♥burgers is the place for you.  They  are open for lunch and dinner, seven days a week .  See you there !
