My office is located around the corner from Town Square, a shopping, dining and entertainment center on the far south end of Las Vegas Boulevard. There are a range of eateries there, from fancy to hip to casual. I ♥ Burgers is one of the casual spots. Although I’d driven past it several times on other outings to Town Square, I hadn’t had a chance to try it out. A lunchtime meeting was a great opportunity to do just that.
The place is bright and cheerful. Staff wear t-shirts imprinted with (nom), a hint that the food you’ve ordered is going to be good.
A variety of beef burgers are offered in standard or junior sizes along with natural-cut or sweet potato fries. You can also get a vegetarian bean burger or a chicken burger. There are salad options, too.
The appy menu features ahi tuna sliders and fried pickles, which is what I ordered. Both were delish. There’s some sort of slaw on the sliders. It’s tangy and crunchy, providing a nice counterpoint to the tuna and the creamy avocado slices. I loved the pickles. They’re cut in long strips, rather than coins, and coated in a tempura-style batter, so they’re light and crispy. There aren’t too many of them, so I didn’t feel terribly guily about making full use of the side of ranch dipping sauce.
Next time I go, I want to try the fried mac-n-cheese appetizer and the raw Tuscan kale salad. I know; opposite ends of the spectrum, right? But, being able to choose between bad stuff and healthy fare, depending on your mood, and knowing both will be good: well, that’s what keeps you coming back.
