A large pink and white cow greeted us at the entrance of Holsteins. The restaurant had a modern décor and was open on three sides. Modern art adorned its walls. The booths and chairs were quite comfortable and the atmosphere was very casual.

We were at Holsteins to check out whether they really serve the best burgers in Las Vegas. The menu was offered as soon as we had settled in. There was a good selection of burgers, shakes and snacks. The signature burger is the Gold Standard, a dry aged beef sirloin burger with smoked bacon, aged goat cheddar cheese, tomato confit, baby arugula and garlic-chive aioli.

We ordered a Pumpkin Pie Shake, Hen House Burger and a Sloppy Juan. It took a pretty long time for our order to be served. The Pumpkin Pie Shake, when it was served, was quite a revelation. If I hadn’t known better I would have thought I was having a real pumpkin pie (apart from the texture and coldness of course). Delicious would be an understatement in this case. I would make a special trip back to Holstein’s just for another Pumpkin Pie Shake, it was that good.

But the Sloppy Juan, southwestern chili braised beef short rib with escabeche onion and frisse, and the Hen House Burger, a beef burger with fried egg, bacon, lettuce, tomato and onion with mustard and ketchup were huge let downs. I would never have voted them as the best of anything. They were filling for sure, but they did not have anything that I can rave about. I would probably go back and eat there, but only for their shake (yes, it was really that good!). Also, the Onion Rings were fabulous! If I wasn’t worried about the calories, I could just live on their onion rings and pumpkin pie shakes alone!

Service at Holsteins was horribly slow. Overall, this restaurant serves some great shakes and filling burgers. But do they serve the best burgers in Las Vegas? Absolutely “No”. Our rating for Holsteins is Almost Bombastic.

What I liked: The Pumpkin Pie Shake

What I didn’t like: The slow service and the average burgers
