Cheeseburger

— Originally posted on Yelp on 5/2/10 —

We were doing some shopping at the Miracle Mile shops and getting really hungry. Planet Hollywood and Miracle Mile aren’t exactly known for good inexpensive food, so we just decided to give this place a shot. We had to wait a few minutes to get seated (for lunch), which wasn’t a big deal, but then we waited… and waited… and waited some more. It was probably close to 15 minutes before anyone stopped by our table to say hi or take drink orders. But, that gave us plenty of time to look over the menu. When our waitress finally showed up we quickly gave her our food and drink orders fearing that she wouldn’t return for another half hour.

As for the food… meh. Cheeseburger Las Vegas is kind of like a cross between Islands Fine Burgers and The Cheesecake Factory. And, like the Cheesecake Factory they have a thick menu with laminated pages that are spiral bound. All their food is the typical high caloric, fat-laden, heart attack-inducing stuff you would expect to find in a place like this. With that being said, I still wanted to get my grub on. There was no time to worry about a quadruple bi-pass.

The food:
Kalua pig sandwich — surprisingly good! The hoagie roll was lightly toasted, the pulled pork was finely shredded, tender and flavorful, and there was some cole slaw in the sandwich that added a nice crunch.

Hawaiian chicken sandwich — decent but largely forgettable sandwich with pineapple and teriyaki sauce.

Chicken tenders — 4 large (and thinly pounded) pieces of chicken sitting on top of a large pile of seasoned steak fries. Not bad as far as chicken tenders go. The fries were nice and crispy but could have used more seasoning.

Overall, it was a mediocre experience and I knew it would be going in. I was surprised by how much I liked the pork sandwich, but other than that, the food was nothing memorable. I doubt I’ll be back.
