Restaurant Review- Michael Mina Pub 1842, Las Vegas

On our recent vacation we decided we wanted to have a casual night out for dinner so we set off in pursuit of a tasty place to sit and enjoy a good burger.

On our last Vegas adventure we ate at Gordon Ramsey’s Burgr you can read my early post about that restaurant. This was a totally different experience. No posh restaurant vibe surrounded by fire features this was a truly casual Pub vibe with really good food, and best yet great service!

We were promptly seated in a comfy booth, there were TV’s playing basketball games, and the waiter greeted us and got our drinks right away. Although we had a waiter, we were consistently being taken care of by at least three staff members at any given time. Making sure glasses stayed full and everything was to our satisfaction. I have to say though it never seemed intrusive or over the top. Just polite, excellent service.

Andy ordered the pub burger and I ordered a Bourbon BBQ chicken Sandwhich, we shared and I have to say both were amazing!

The burger was thick juicy, well cooked with lots of flavor, and not over dressed and sloppy. It really was burger perfection.

The chicken Sandwhich followed suit. Coated with a tangy bbq sauce, and pickled cabbage it was really delicious and full of flavor!

Out side of excellent food and service costs were well aligned not too expensive but worth every penny, and the pub offered a little table side fun with drinking games, and fun info printed on the placemats.

I would highly recommend Michael Mina’s Pub 1842, it is located in the MGM Grand Casino Hotel, in Las Vegas! Enjoy!

A Burger Craving

The semi-warm, semi-cold weather has me wishing the Michigan climates would make up their mind just be Springy already! I desperately want to get my grill out and have been dying to make some good burgers. The weather is good enough to cook on the grill but not good enough for me to go outside and man the grill lol! I hate even a little bit of cold in the air.

In order to satisfy my craving without making too much of a mess in the kitchen, because let’s face it cooking burgers in the house is a greasy mess regardless of your technique for doing so. I decided to make a fresh turkey burger on King Hawaiian bread rolls, with a side of mustard potato salad! Yum!


Here’s what you’ll need for this super flavorful burger.

1 lb Ground turkey

1 small bunch of green onions, chopped

1/4 c of chopped fresh spinach

2 Tbsp of White Chicken Chili seasoning mix

1/4 c of Cheddar Jack Cheese Crumbles

2 cloves of fresh garlic

1 large egg

salt and pepper to taste…go easy on the pepper though the chili seasoning has a pretty strong flavor!

1 package of King Hawaiian bread rolls



honey mustard

In a large mixing bowl combine the turkey, green onions, spinach, chili seasoning, garlic, egg, salt and pepper. Stir together until well combined. Add the cheese crumbles last and mix until combined. Form into small patties, place on a foil lined pan (for easier cleaning) and bake in a 350F oven for about 12-15 minutes on each side or until brown on each side, and inside temp is at least 160F. Serve on King Hawaiian rolls with lettuce tomato and honey mustard! enjoy!!
