Welcome To Texas! Hope You’re Hungry

— by Wombat-socho It’s been almost a year since my recon mission to Las Vegas, during which I reported on In-N-Out Burger and the Heart Attack Grill, and now that I am halfway back to Vegas it’s time for another post on hamburgers. First, I am happy to report that Krystal continues to be the […]

A Tale Of Two Burgers

— Wombat-socho As I mentioned in the previous burger post, one of my objectives in visiting Las Vegas this week was to check out a couple of hamburger joints not found in my Washington DC stomping grounds: the infamous Heart Attack Grill, and the wildly popular In-N-Out Burger.
