Gordon Biersch

Gordon Biersch, just off The Strip
3987 Paradise Road
Las Vegas, NeVada 89109

Oh boy. Line 'em up. Another warehouse-decorated brewery/restaurant.

No chance of a generic menu here. Let's see ...

- Signature hamburger with their own beer somehow incorporated: Gordon Biersch cheeseburger, Marzen barbecue burger.
- Fish & chips made with their own beer: Served with malt Vinegar. NeVer had that before.
- On the appetizer menu: Calamari, crab cakes, chicken wings or skewers and an all-in-one sampler. Wowee!

I'll give them that their beer is good. But I question some of the special season offerings (winter bock, maibock, bock-bock-bock. Repeat after me: winter bock, maibock, bock-bock-bock. Try that at your next football game instead of the old "push em back, push em back, waaaaaay back." Now, back to your regularly-scheduled reView).

So, the burger is good -- nothing particularly noteworthy. They could have used Budweiser in their cheeseburger and it would have tasted the same.

So who goes here and orders a salad? I do. Stay as far away from the Ahi (tuna) salad as you would from Chernobyl. Only came with 4 Very, Very thin mini-slices of tuna. Where's the brick of tuna?!

The asian chicken salad was ok -- a little too much dressing. Classic cobb salad wasn't anything I've had before, but done as well as could be expected.

The best food item there is the blackened Mahi Mahi sandwich. A nice, big hunk of protein. Strongly seasoned, but not overpowering. Great bun.

Final Comment: Solid beer offerings (try the Marzen), otherwise yet another typical brewhouse/restaurant.
