Flippin’ Good Chicken, Burgers, Beer
By Vegas Food Nerd

Flippin’ Good Chicken, Burgers, Beer, a sports bar meets - burger joint, has evolved over the few years it has been open in DTLV. It started as a fast food concept like Shake Shack, but the owners decided to shutter it for a remodel and make it a service restaurant instead. Located right across from the Lyft park, it’s an ideal spot to ask for a table by the window so that you can stare at the glamazon marionette that towers over the park. It’s also a fun place to people watch—the depths that visitors in our town go to can be entertaining.  The space is warm with sports viewing available around the entire area. The bar in the back has a brick wall behind its extensive offerings of spirits. The tables are basic—nothing fancy—but it’s got a hangout feel and is a casual, fun way to duck out of the Freemont area craziness for a while.

The night that I got a chance to visit, we were planning on hitting a show after and were limited on time. Our server saw to it that our order got in and out of the kitchen and we had plenty of time to spare. We both ordered a couple of bacon cheeseburgers fries and two Coca-Colas. The burgers came to our table hot, cheesy, juicy and meaty and just what we were craving. The fries were just OK—nothing to get too excited about, but they did come to the table nice and hot. You can dress up your fries, which I will do on my next visit, and get the bacon and cheese fries and/or the Nashville hot fries. The menu is simple and in addition to burgers, offers fried and/or grilled chicken sandwiches, turkey burgers, chicken fingers and a vegan “chicken” sandwich that my neighboring table couldn’t help but rave about. They do offer a couple of salads, but let’s be honest—that is not why you come to a joint like this. In addition to their savory side of the menu, Flippin’ Good offers a wide variety of hand-spun milkshakes, blended floats and concretes. Concretes are custom blended with their signature frozen custard and a variety of mix-ins to make a thick, delicious, spoonable concoction that will make your DQ Blizzard pale in comparison.

It’s a fun, relaxed place to hang out watch the game, get a reasonably priced menu and devour some greasy goodness at the same time. Next time you are in the area, give them a try. Now go eat something.
Chef Rhori Kow

The newly appointed executive chef for Triple George Grill is Chef Rhori Kow. This Atlanta native started cooking here in Las Vegas in 2011 with The Wynn. Kow’s career continued to rise, and he brings over 15 years of hospitality management and fine dining experience to Triple George. Most recently he served as Chef de Cuisine at Wicked Spoon Buffet inside the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino. “It’s an exciting opportunity,” noted Kow. “The food scene in Downtown Las Vegas is a growing phenomenon, and Triple George Grill was one of the first to do it right. It’s important to uphold the current standard that was established long before I arrived, but I also look forward to inserting my personality and passion into everything we do.” Chef Kow will take the reigns from Chef Brearley Hernandez, who was recently promoted to Executive Chef of Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino, overseeing culinary operations within the hotel. “Chef Brearley was a staple at Triple George Grill, but luckily he’s not going far,” said Case Cicchelli, Managing Director 3rd Street Restaurant Group. “We have established ourselves as one of the top restaurants in Downtown Las Vegas over the past 13 years, and that’s not going to change. Rhori brings a great deal of energy and flair to Triple George Grill, and he will be a great addition to our team.”
