Burger Bar is located in the Shoppes at Mandalay Place, the sky walk between Mandalay Bay and Luxor.
This place has the atmosphere of a sports bar. The booths all have TVs in them, and overall it is a lot of fun. Be warned though, most nights there is a pretty decent wait for the place (upwards of 30 minutes some nights, no reservations).
The quality has always been very good when I go, food has been done correctly and comes out within a reasonable time frame. They only really sell burgers/fries and some salads so as long as that is what you are looking for, you probably won't be diapointed. They do have a create your own burger which is a fun thing, you can pick everything that goes on from their normal menu, my only problem with this is some of the items that they charge extra for sometimes seems rediculous (not the price, just the fact that there is a charge at all). My usual choice is the chicken sandwhich.
The tap selection is pretty good overall for a Strip location. Prices on their taps are very reasonable, I was getting 9 oz pours of Abyss for 5.50. The best deal that they usually have is for the sampling menu, 6 - 6oz glasses, prices will vary but they usually end up costing me around 15$.
The bottle list is very impressive but this is where they start to get a bit more on the pricy side. Some are very reasonable, others are priced a bit high, but that is to disuade the drunk tourists from ordering it for fun. The vertical that they have of FSW 11-14 is a pretty nice offering if you have 4 people.
The staff is generally very nice, though aside from the bar tenders, beer knowledge is not universal. Best bet if you want to talk to someone about beer, sit at the bar.

A - Vegas touristy. It's IN the Mandalay Bay

V - Expensive.

Visited with the family on a recent trip to Vegas. Being the only recognizable place on the Strip with a decent craft selection, we decided on this joint. Located amongst the shops and other restaurants on the main floor of Mandalay Bay, medium sized place and a dive-bar atmosphere with about 20 OK craft taps (some Belgian, DFH, Sierra Nevada and unoffensive local offerings - a wit or two and some pale ales), nothing outstanding or overly enticing. Good friendly service, didn't have to wait for a table when we arrived at around 5pm. An OK regular bottle selection, alot of which is recapitulated when I asked for the "Special Bottle List." Nothing crazy in here, but it's pretty pricey - they had bottles of Abacus and Parabola for $40, and that was the rarest of what they had in store. Above average food, albeit unspectacular - my Kobe beef burger was good, but not the best I've had. I might revisit here if I came back to Vegas, but there was certainly much left to be desired.

Stopped in upon consulting with local BAs via forums.
Very strong selection, though inferior to Todd English. Lots of Belgians and US crafts.
I decided to go with the burger, to see if the place can live up to its name and not only was it priced rather reasonably, but it was pretty delicious.
Eventhough it is located in a mall type setting, the ambiance is inside is pretty tolerable. Some of the other visitors were consuming BMCs, as the name would absolutely attract "beer junkies," that live on Bud Light and other such delicacies, and some of the waitresses, whose natural shapes have been modified by surgeons operating in the fields of plastics, had no shame in not knowing much about the good beer, but nevertheless, for this locale, if you must have craft beer- this is one of the stops that I would recommend.

I stopped in while waiting for my flight home on a recent trip. It seemed like other BAs have enjoyed their visits, so I made this my last stop before heading to the airport. I grabbed a seat at the bar and ordered a burger. Service was quick and I didn't get lost in the shuffle during a shift change, which was nice. The surroundings felt like LV, with a mixture of higher end (stone bartop and dark wood) with campy (lots of neon) elements. The selection was solid, with ~24 taps and ~100 bottles, including ~10 vintage bottles (stuff like FW12&13, Stone VE, etc.). Beer prices were reasonable, barring the vintage bottles, with $6 pints available (there were also 6oz samples for $2.50). My buffalo burger was good, but not exceptional, although the jalapeno bacon and onion rings were quite good. Overall, I was expecting a little more, but didn't leave disappointed.

Went here on a recent trip to Vegas. Pretty full at lunch time but I doubt many were there for the decent selection of imports and domestic craft seeing how everyone in there was drinking yellow fizz. Lots of decent taps but I opted for a bomber of Arrogant Bastard for 15$, ice cold bottle and was given a frozen pint glass (I asked for a warm over sized wine glass I saw sitting on the shelf) I could have blown the bank on Firestone Verticals and very expensive singles but there was plenty I'd never tried before. Sit at the back unless you want too smell the Lush soap store across the way, not the best background smells for tasting beer. I didn't try the food but I should've because the burgers looked awesome. Worth a try for sure, I wish I had more time to hangout here and try some of the different stuff they had on the go.

Took the long walk from my hotel in the middle of the Strip all the way down to this place, situated in Mandalay Place, the indoor mall between Mandalay Bay and the Luxor. I got here at a quiet time late on a Friday afternoon and grabbed a stool at the empty bar. The place has a vibe that's kind of a cross between a sports bar and a steak place. Leather booths with frosted glass in between, sleek black counter surfaces, but yet very bright and still casual. I liked it.
Beer selection was all quality stuff. The draft list was pretty pedestrian by the standards of a good LV beer bar, but still plenty to choose from. The bottle list was a bit more exciting and deep. The centerpiece of the list is the ability to do a vertical of Firestone Walker 11-14, that is if you have 3 (or maybe it's 4) adults and $200 to spend. I'd do that in a heartbeat since where else can you get that chance, but I was traveling alone for business so out of luck there. Still a good selection broadly split between domestic craft and European craft.
They specialize in burgers, as you might guess from the name. I had a buffalo burger which was nicely lean and tasty. Pricey, but hey this is the Strip.
Service was very pleasant and always there when my glass was nearly empty.
I would certainly check this place out again.
