The Triple 7 is one of Boyd Gaming’s downtown Las Vegas restaurants that offers complimentary choices from their menu to those who are on the Vacations Hawaii Aloha Charter tour from Hawaii.
Among the coupons is a complimentary prime rib dinner, which I had the night of arrival. I was so hungry when I got to Main Street Casino, Brewery & Hotel just before midnight that I just scarfed down the prime rib meal.
Anyway, the next night, I felt like having a hamburger, so I eschewed the coffee shop at the California Hotel and went back to Triple 7. I've had their burgers and steaks before, and they re pretty good.
There are certain times in one’s life when nothing hits the spot like a juicy cheeseburger with all the fixings. This was one of those times. Plus, the best thing was that it was one of those complimentary meals that came with the tour package.
Soon, my waitress (a pretty blonde whose name I didn't get) brought me a Western Bacon Cheeseburger (half-pound burger smothered in barbecue sauce, topped with bacon, roasted red pepper, onion rings, jack cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and pickles), and a huge plastic cup of Pepsi.
She knew I'd need plenty of extra paper napkins, which she happily provided without being asked, and a couple of moist wipes for afterwards. Perfect for mopping up my mouth after each bite.
Unfortunately, I forgot that their French fries are not as crispy as I like, so next time, I'll try to remember, and order onion rings instead.
