Desi Vegas, Harahan, LA Report #1


I heard good things about this place.  I used to love Phil’s Grill “build your own” burger menu and their menu has that feature!

I’m not big on fried pickles because I normally find them too salty.  These weren’t, and the ranch type dipping sauce was delicious.

The hand cut fries with real bacon bits, cheese and ranch were excellent.  Very crispy.

For an extra $1 you can get any shake “malted” and I opted for that with a plain vanilla malt.  It was delicious.

There were numerous, yummy sounding specialty burgers, but when I go to a new place I want to try the basics first.  If you can’t get the basics right, no sense in getting any more adventurous.  So I got a burger on a white bun, with prime beef, American cheese, lettuce, diced onion, mayo and mustard.  I figured that’s about as simple as you could get.  Very good, and the perfect size.  You can finish it without being over stuffed.  Since we had fries as an appetizer I opted for onion rings with my burger.  If I could complain about anything it would be the onion rings.  As a matter of preference, I prefer thick cut onion rings.  These were thin cut, great tasting batter and very crisp, but very greasy.  Other than that everything else was great.  I will return!

Well, I said I’d return. Only took me 4 1/2 years to get back here. The scene of my very FIRST restaurant report!

We came in because we were in the mood to build our own burger, but once we looked at the specialty burgers we both decided on one.

We had:

&&&&& THE FOOD &&&&&

Who Dat Burger
The Blues Burger

I had a chocolate malt. Looks like the place has lost a little class! The last time I was here and ordered a malt it came in a glass, topped with whipped cream and a cherry. This time it came in a plastic cup. Still was delicious.

Both burgers were very good. And the fries were fantastic. I upgraded to a loaded baked potato, and it was delicious! The last pic is of both burgers cut in half so you can see what the insides looked like. Yes, I did that just for y’all.

Still a great place. Maybe I’ll return in less than 4.5 years this time.
