Yep it is if you're referring to its thinness. But it doesn't matter because you can stack a dozen of them if you want. I took more of them later.

We tried only the buffalo chicken sandwich and beef nachos. Both were good for the price.

Subbed due to Betty the Yetti reference in OP + some support for Chick Fil-a (although, surprising amount of dislike for the most venerable fast food brand in the world)

Haven't left Vegas when I visited prior: does Steak N' Shake exist out there? In LV or any other NV towns?

TR: Burger Hunting in Vegas

We ate at Cut yday with tassle. We both had Ribeyes with a glass of Zinfandel. Both the steak and wine were good but well, they had to be good for that price. IMO off strip dining is in general just way better value.

We are actually both fans of more classic and quieter steakhouses so the ambiance at Cut was a little too noisy and contemporary. Service was super fast, and imo it could have been slower or more warm to even things out a bit.

The waiter knew his trade, and he told us to try Vic & Anthonys in downtown (Golden Nugget), and told us to take a specific wine there (Patrina, Alban wineyards). If possible, i think we're going to go try that for a more classic experience.

P4b's preferred meal is McDonalds based on his posting history, so let that guide you.

3x2 animal w/ toasted buns and double grilled onions for the main course, and a "protein style" for dessert.

Yep, i like their shakes and the vibe in the restaurant but imo the burgers are just ok but not special for the price.

Re: TR: Burger Hunting in Vegas

I highly recommend Ketchup in The Miracle Mile Shops. It's to your right when you enter from the 3rd level of the parking garage. They have a great Burger & Beer Special from 8.99-11.99 depending on the beer you pick, and they pour you a pretty tall draft.

I'm not a huge ketchup (the sauce) fan, but they do rotate some house made varieties in their ketchup bar. Maple Bacon, Sirracha, Honey Sirracha.... all worked pretty well.

They used to have some smokeshow bartenders that worked there. I haven't eaten there in about 8 months so I can't confirm if the girls are still working there.

Steak n Shake is fine only if you order a frisco melt with onion rings (or chili) and only if you go inside and sit at the bar.
