Gordon Ramsay Burger

(LAS VEGAS, 041917) It is always lively at Gordon Ramsay Burger joint in Las Vegas, NV located inside Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. We arrived around 6:20 pm and waited in line for about 10 minutes. The line grew behind us just in time for dinner. The hostess was all smiles seating us. The waiter was friendly who could hear above the crowd. The waiter said there would be a 30 minute wait for the food. The root beer was just ok. The food arrived in 20 minutes. I ordered the Hell's Kitchen Burger, which was a mouthful. The burger patty was medium in thickness and cooked just right. There was plenty of avocado. I didn't make a mess and was left hungry for more. I asked around and was told the food was very good.
