Based on a tip from my friend Bob, I stopped at the "One Stop Burger Shop" in the strip mall at the corner of McCarran and DelMonte today (across the parking lot from Taco Bell...). It may not quite be an Awful-awful, but they make a decent burger. All the fixin's, grilled to order. Lunch special is burger, home-cut fries, and a drink for 4.95. Two other things to note: they have specialty burgers (turkey, veggie, buffalo) and they make excellent onion rings! Battered and fried in front of your eyes; none of that premade and frozen junk. Delicious!
Also, have any of you Reno Hounds tried out the new "Kabob House" in Sparks yet? Its REALLY Hard to find: on the far (east) side of the Sparks Lake; you drive on the road that goes east past the Marina and keep going into what seems like a construction zone, and its in this big building facing the lake...no sign yet, but they are open. I went to the trouble to go there when I was out in Sparks yesterday, and they are closed Monday. I promise to check it out next time I'm in the neighborhood, and provide more specific instructions......A good kabob place in our area would be a plus, no????
