About this Business
From Our Editors
When they graduated from the University of Nevada, the owners of Archie’s Giant Hamburgers & Breakfast didn’t move far. They planted their restaurant near their college campus, a short walk from Mackay Stadium, to suppress the hungry howls of students and locals with mammoth burgers and breakfast served around the clock.
Archie’s is split between two stories—a diner on the bottom and a memorabilia-packed sports bar on top. Exposed steel rafters and brushed metal walls absorb the game-day cheers that ricochet through the upper level equipped with plasma TVs, a pool table, and a jukebox. Below, forks dig through flapjacks amid ‘50s-style decor befitting of Grease, a film titled for the bacon fat teens once used to slick back their hair.
