i expected so much from bobby flay... overall, i was a bit disappointed! the meat on the burger itself was great; very flavorful and a good size, but the toppings (at least that we ordered, weren't stellar). important note: here they say the default temp on the burger is "pink in the center" and boy do they mean it. unlike 500 degrees where their medium rare is really a medium temp, at bobby's burger palace be prepared for an authentically medium rare preparation unless you tell them otherwise. dallas burger: burger + bbq sauce + coleslaw + monterey jack cheese + pickles i was sooooo excited for this burger. this was the reason i wanted to go to bobby's burger palace, but the toppings were just all MEH. the coleslaw, while providing good crunch, was flavorless! the pickles were the brightest flavor and despite my love for pickles, that is not ideal. i didn't really taste too much of the bbq sauce either. though disappointing, i'd try this again. after i try others. napa valley burger: goat cheese + meyer lemon honey mustard + watercress i normally love love love goat cheese, but did not like this burger. at all. didn't eat more than a few bites of it. it was heavy on the goat cheese, light on the watercress and who knows what the actual ratio of honey mustard is normally. what i mean is, when they say watercress, they mean like 2 sprigs of it, so it may as well have been left off. AND as it turns out, they did leave the honey mustard off of our burger. sigh. they completely forgot the mustard. which we didn't realize until a few bites in. i wouldn't recommend this. sweet potato fries with horseradish honey mustard hands down, best sweet potato + condiment combination i have ever had. fries were crispy but substantial enough to have good tension. the horseradish honey mustard is AMAZING. i want to have this with me ALL. THE. TIME. it was just so interesting with that spicy kick and very slight hint of sweetness. beer battered onion rings HUGE rings. and THICK. these were like an inch high! that is crazy for an onion ring. but the batter tasted good and was not too thick. crunchy delish. sante fe burger: queso sauce, jalapenos, crushed blue corn tortilla chips brought one of these back as a take-out order. i only took one bite of this, but it was better than either the dallas or napa valley burger and that says a lot, especially considering it wast eaten about 30-40 minutes after initial preparation. the good thing for take-out orders is that they wrap the burger in foil so it stayed warm. the queso sauce was TASTY. cheesy and just salty enough. jalapenoes gave much needed kick. and the CRUNCHIFIED-NESS was great.

We've been trying to go to Flip for the past 4 months. After a couple times where the wait was too long for my hunger to handle, and a couple cancellations we made it in last night. It was well worth the wait!! Between the four of us we had the Turkey Burger, the Bacon Cheeseburger, and the Butcher's Cut. The turkey burger was flavorful and juicy, the avocado and ketchup were perfect compliments. Easily the best I've had. The other members of the party raved about their burgers, primarily just the surprising way all the parts went together. Flip definitely combines creative flavors with fantastic outcomes! The sides were complementary and surprising in their own right. Fried pickles = YUM!, the fries were crispy and actually tasted like potatoes as opposed to grease, my salad was delicious as well. I've reserved the sweet potato tots for their own paragraph. After reading reviews I had to try the sweet potato tots since they seem to be such a controversial item. Well, they weren't on the menu anymore. Our server very honestly shared with us that they had been removed due to the love/hate relationship most diners had with them. I'm glad I asked, because he was able to get us a side of them to try and thus offer our opinion. Frankly, they were wonderful!! The outside was crispy and light, the inside was gooey and delightful if a little too hot temperature-wise. Supposedly these can be very greasy, our batch was cooked perfect. If you are there, give them a try and let them know what you think. The good news is, they are listening to feedback and working to improve. If they can get these to be consistently good like ours last night then we need to get them back on the menu!! Now on to the milkshakes... I am still thinking about how delish my Orange Creamsicle shake was. Still. I eat super healthy 98% of the time, when I slip up it is for a good cause and this shake was no exception. We also had the Krispy Kreme and Peach shakes at our table. I do not exaggerate when I tell you I really felt like I was eating a doughnut with just a sip of the shake. Crazy good! Flip did not fail to live up to our expectations even as they grew over the course of 4 months. Service was friendly and prompt, he gave us honest input when we were stuck on what to order, and brought us great food! Go on an off night, like Monday when the wait isn't bad.

I've never experience an All-Asian night club until now which was comforting to be part of the Asian world. I thought it was odd that there were no Asian music playing to make it an authentic Asian club. There is a stripper pole directly on top of the bar and a rope for stripper to swing. I came here on a Friday night, the next day after New Year's, which was extremely crowded as I was unable to maneuver comfortably on the dance floor. To my utter shock and dismay the coat check charges a ridiculous $4.00 per item as they do not allow multiple items on the same hanger which cost patrons to dig deeper into one's wallets. This nightclub does not open until promptly at 10pm and allows single women VIP entry treatment thus banishing men latter entry. After 12 midnight all patrons are charged with a whopping $20.00 admission fee. I was accompanied by a group of six which two men in our party was frustrated with the long wait combined with the bitter cold of a winter night that they departed our group. The night club has sound effects of fake snow falling onto the dance floor and noise makers that make you loose your hearing. There is a drummer and a ledge for women to climb onto for brief dancing above the dance floor. There is gymnasts on cloth ropes dangling in mid-air. In addition, the bar ridiculously charges a whopping $5.00 for a glass of water so patrons will not hydrate while dancing the night away. It is not large night club with a mid-size dance floor. The upstairs has a lounge area as well as the rear of the club. The bar tender ignores my request for drink order as she ignore me like a statue for nearly fifteen minutes for one Cosmopolitan and one Long Island Ice Tea which are common mixed drinks. The club is quite modern and well maintained.
