Whenever I order a burger at a restaurant, I usually end up “customizing” it to meet my tastes. Remove this, substitute this, change this… I’m always nervous when the waitress doesn’t write stuff down!
So when I heard about Create: Gourmet Burgers, I knew we had to try it. Not only does it allow the customer to build burgers to their own liking, but it’s closer to our home than driving all the way to The Strip to visit the Burger Bar AND it’s more casual and affordable. And my husband is a fan of burgers, so it means he would be more willing to try the place.
They have a few creations on their menu that are their signature items, which is what my husband elected to try. His burger was called the “Medieval” and was a beef burger topped with applewood smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, bbq sauce and tomato.
We both got our meals in the combo option so we could try the fries. I had their traditional fresh cut fries and Kevin had the sweet potato fries, that way we could sample both options. The regular fries were good; they tasted fresh and were cooked well without being overly greasy. But I actually preferred the sweet potato fries; they were touched lightly with cinnamon and were perfectly crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.
Both of us enjoyed our burgers and are planning on returning. I’m eager to try a portobello burger as well as the “Abstract” burger, their own veggie burger patty made of brown rice, oats, mushrooms and spices.
They have mini burgers, but I think those are only available in beef patties and on the white bun.
Another item on the menu is frozen custard, something that we did not try simply because we were full. But I’m sure Kevin would want to try it someday.
They had little clipboards at the counter so you could circle the items you want on your custom burger. Those weren’t obviously placed and I wasn’t entirely certain it was required for ordering, but I grabbed one and filled it out anyway. We did have to wait at the counter to order for a little bit while several of the employees looked at us, which seemed a little unprofessional. When dining in, your food is brought to the table on a plate, thus it feels a little more formal than unwrapping your food from paper or eating it from a basket.
I was pleased with this place, so much so that it may dangerously increase my craving of burgers.
