I can’t even call these burgers bland. There was absolutely no seasoning on the burgers at all. The naked wings were tasteless as well. I can accept the wings not being good because this was a burger joint. The burgers definitely need work. The fries...weren’t good either. I gave 1 star because the burger looked good and the service was good.More

Very disappointing. Cooked but tasteless burger on a dry almost stale bun. Poor service which is expected during these times but this is extraordinarily poor. Shake was nothing special. The name attracted us. The menu with burgers and shakes..how can you go wrong? A flame...grilled whopper and the shake from Burger King is a better tasting burger and the shake is much better for less money and probably better service via the drive through.More

Sooo good! We got it to go and it was still amazing, fresh, and hot! We’re visiting from Utah and will definitely make it a point to come back when here in the future! Would recommend over and over again if you’re looking for a...top of the line burger! 👌More

Went with wife and one of our daughters for burgers Monday evening, 12/16/2019. Reasonably neat and clean for a burger joint, but that's hardly the reason for this review. The menu offers, as usual, a number of choices and it takes a couple of minutes...to make a decision and inform the wait staffer, etc. The biggest hurdle is how to STOP ADDING additional layers of good stuff on the burger. Anyway, we all made our decisions and then sipped our drinks while waiting for our burgers to be prepared. After a while - but not an overly long time - the burgers arrived, surrounded by wonderful french fries. The burgers were HUGE, right off the grill and all dressed up as if you might not eat again for another week. AN ENDURING EXPLOSION OF WONDERFUL TASTE RIGHT IN YOUR MOUTH AND A CHALLENGE TO EAT THE ENTIRE BURGER BEFORE YOU COLLAPSE. NO WAY TO STOP BEFORE FINISHING. DREAM ABOUT YOUR LAST BURGER BEFORE YOU RETURN FOR ANOTHER!More

This place has a wide range of burgers on the menu and although wasn't wild about my burger it was because I didn't choose wisely, choose one with a blue cheese sauce that over took all the other flavors. It was cooked the way I...liked it and service was great. Taking a star off for the onion rings, I don't mind greasy but I these were over the top greasy.More

Couldn’t wait to visit this restaurant after all of the great reviews. The half pound, prime beef burgers are really juicy and good. The selection of ingredients for your burger is as nice as the original restaurant in that location, Phil’s. While we loved the...fresh cut fries, we found them greasy. We also felt the onion rings served on the burgers were also pretty greasy. Service here is good. Pricing is reasonable.More

Being familiar with Desi Vega's steak restaurants, I was very pleased with this place. The burgers are thick and cooked exactly how you request. The shakes were also very sweet. The menu had a lot of good choices and the location is a good spot...away from the heavy traffic.More

My son and daughter in law invited us to dinner with her mother and father to celebrate our birthdays -- yes, five birthdays in 2 weeks. It was great! Wait staff VERY efficient and on top of everything from appetizers, entrees, shakes, quick food for...the toddler and our birthday cake. Very accomodating; food was nice and hot and deliicious -- made to order. Not a large menu -- simple and uncomplicated! Great for families and very roomy. Very enjoyable!!!!More

I had heard about Desi Vegas burgers, the burger place from the steak place and was intrigued so decided to check it out. The place is really big and bright and looks like a great lunch place. We were seated quickly and ordered. Each burger...comes with fries, and you can substitute cheese fries or sweet potato fries for a charge. We ordered a hamburger, sliders, and a build your own in which you could create your own type of burger toppings. The food was good - large portions, good flavor, and nice toppings as well. The service was good (there weren't that many people in the restaurant). The only negative was the waiting time for the food -- it took a long time for the food to come out, which meant its being cooked then but also means you need patienceMore

Experienced my 1st visit today, 12/27/2018. It was recommended my a trusted friend and she was right. The service and food exceeded by expectations. JoAnn, our server, was exceptional. She was geniuely friendly, funny, direct and attentive🙌. Her suggestion for the monthly special was spot...on. We liked her so much we would have asked her to join us if it were not for the fact she was working😊. When in the area, we will definitely visit again. Thanks for your part in making a pleasant day with my little Sister special.More

Had the mushroom swiss burger with crystal onion strings for my side. Huge burger (could only eat half) and lots of onion rings. Friends had burgers and fries or salad. All cooked perfectly to order. Friendly service. Reasonably priced. Next time will try the shakes.

We visited for lunch on Sunday, 08-26-2018. The location has ample off-street parking, and the decor is nicely done and well maintained. I debated whether to go with a 'regular' burger, or something more exotic. I decided to order the WhoDat. The wait staff was...attentive, engaging and funny. They bantered comfortably and took care of our needs without being oppressive or overbearing. Now, to the food. The WhoDat was simply amazing, one of the best burgers I have EVER had. The quality and flavor of the prime beef were great, and the burger was prepared perfectly to my 'medium rare' order. In hindsight, next time I'll most likely order the 'normal' burger, since the prime beef flavor is enough to stand alone, and the additional toppings and sauces and bacon don't really add to the experience. If you don't mind spending a bit more to get a lot more, Desi Vega's is certainly worth the trip. (We drove in from about an hour out) Very nicely done.More
