You don't have to roam far from the slots at the Venetian to find refreshments. Inside the adjoining Shoppes at The Palazzo, the staffers at I Love Burgers serve up American favorites and drinks including imported beers and 50-ounce frozen daiquiris. To ensure diners can remember which way the slots are, they grill 14 riffs on their signature Angus burger. They top these sizzling patties with the Italian flavors of caprese drizzled in a balsamic reduction, and channel Seoul's soul with sriracha, kimchi, a fresh egg, and furikake-wasabi mayo.
But Angus beef isn't their only patty option. They incorporate everything from vegetarian-friendly black beans to buffalo to brisket blended with bacon, resulting in creations such as the Plymouth's Pride turkey burger with stuffing and cranberry chutney. They pair burgers with fried bites of mac 'n' cheese or Garbage fries sprinkled with a menagerie of American toppings. For those looking for lighter fare, they toss mixed salad greens with chicken or salmon alongside healthy ingredients fit for a nutritionist's amateur puppet show.
Binion’s saloon balances old-style swagger with a menu of sandwiches, pizzas, and handcrafted beers, 50-inch plasma televisions, and a fine selection of cigars (starting at $5). Lubricate stomach engines with prime-rib sliders peppered with grilled onions, sautéed mushrooms, and horseradish sauce ($9.95) or garlic lipper chicken wings wearing hot-sauce and ranch or blue-cheese accessories ($6.95). Post premeal noshes take the form of hefty burgers, in which fresh-ground meat is draped in bacon, cheese, and accouterments of choice ($6.25–$9.25), and Chicago–style deep-dish pizzas (starting at $10.95) or specialty pizzas (starting at $11.95). Complement solids with Chicago Brewing Company’s handcrafted microbrews, including Ramblin’ Reck and All Nighter, which can be housed in 64-ounce pitchers ($14) or 100-gallon fish tanks.
