May is known as National Burger Month making it prime time to dust off and fire up the grill. Guaranteed to spice up the burger-flipping season, the restaurants at MGM Resorts offer distinct twists on the traditional bun, meat and cheese recipe. With house-made sauces and gourmet patties, the burgers at BLT Burger, The Pub at Monte Carlo and Burger Bar heighten this classic American favorite.
* BLT Burger at The Mirage brings Mediterranean flavors to life in the Lamb Tandoori burger. The house-made Colorado lamb patty, mint-cilantro yogurt sauce and Mediterranean salsa create a matchless Greek-American fusion. Top off the meal with the popular Mother Fluffer milkshake, a rich and creamy combination of vanilla ice cream graced with a sweetly toasted marshmallow.
* The Pub at Monte Carlo is not only home to the 8-pound Burger Challenge, but also is celebrated for its delicious beef-alternative option, the Caliente Chicken Burger. The white pepper ground chicken patty with sautéed onions and garlic is layered with pepper jack cheese, caramelized onions and chipotle mayonnaise with the choice of bun. Don’t forget to order the cinnamon sugar sweet potato fries paired with an exceptional house-made marshmallow dipping sauce (trust us, it’s worth it).
* The historic Rossini Burger from Burger Bar at Mandalay Bay has a notable flavor and name. The burger is named after a 19th century Italian composer whose love for fine food was legendary. Appropriately named, the decadent Kobe style wagyu beef is flavored with sautéed foie gras, shaved truffles and a rich black perigord truffle sauce served on an onion bun.
