Yeah, I'm sure there are better burgers in Vegas. And no, IAO isn't the end-all fast food burger (that title would have to go to Naugles (RIP) and
their Green Chili Cheeseburger).
As far as mom & pop, hole in the wall, burger joints go...no fast food chain will ever hang with those guys. They're better, hands down, no argument
there. (That title would have to go to Grub's in Wyoming and their Shamrock w/ cheese). And yes, you can get a beer there. Or, a dive bar down the
street from Great Lakes Steel in Detroit.
We have CJ's all over the place here, and they're 'okay', but they're everywhere. I never really cared for their beef. I'd take Wendy's over CJ's,
but that's just my preference.
I like IAO, and I like them for a couple reasons. One, the menu is simple; they don't try to be every thing to every body. And two, the food is
decent for what it is, and you know what you're going to get from one IAO to the next. (Kind of how McDonald's used to be back in the 70's). And
hey, I'll be honest...they're fun to go to, with the hype and all. It was fun for my wife who had never been to one before, so what the heck. If I
had one down the street from me, and on every street corner after that, I'd probably feel the same way about IAO as I do CJ's.
It was fun, my wife had a blast, and the food was decent, so that's all that really mattered.
