Create – Gourmet Burgers & Frozen Custard

July 17, 2011

A great burger place has set up shop in my neighborhood, featuring gourmet burgers and frozen custard.  With is neon green trim, the fast-causal burger joint’s main feature is their burgers.  On the menu is a variety of burgers options: certified Angus beef burgers, turkey burgers, and for the vegetarian there is the Portobello mushroom and something called the “Abstract” meatless burgers. The beef burgers come in a few sizes: Mini(2.5 oz.), Modest (1/4 lb.), Majestic (1/3 lb.) and the Monarch (1/2 lb.). Pick your bun, choose from: lettuce wrap, wheat, Kaiser, or my favorite King’s Hawaiian bread.  They offer a  selection of cheeses and there are over 20 toppings to choose from, like jalapenos, chopped egg and grilled pineapple along with the basic ones, tomato, onion and pickles. Additional premium toppings can be added, sauteed mushrooms, bacon and fresh guacamole to mention a few. Then come the sauces, lots and lots to choose from: chipotle mayo, blue cheese, basil pesto mayo, balsamic vinaigrette and don’t forget Create’s own “The Sauce”, and the list goes on.

This place is great for the whole family, everyone can make their own “Creation”, from a simple basic burger to a gourmet masterpiece.  You are not forced into a cookie-cutter size burger and there are endless combinations to work with. A few of Create’s own masterpieces are featured on their menu, like the “Modernist” (my favorite) and the “Dali”, all named about and around art concepts.  A grilled chicken breast and hot dogs have recently made it on the menu too.

On the sweeter side on things, Create’s own in-house custard is made fresh daily and enjoys the quality found at another Las Vegas sweet spot, Luv-it. With all the standard side toppings, you can build yet another masterpiece, this time frozen. Create not only makes a great burger, but according to the web site,  but has an active recycling program too.  They do the basic recycling of cardboard, plastic and glass and furthermore composting of all food waste(green waste). Even the straws, plastic cups are actually 100% compostable and are made from corn.   Even the flatware and straws are made from sugar cane or corn and can be recycled too.

Create is currently a one of a kind store and offer a great burger too, but according to its creator and owner Lance Graulich, he is looking to expand out his creations across the Las Vegas valley.  Stop by this “must eat” burger joint and make your own masterpiece with a side of fries. Create is located at 7290 W Lake Mead Blvd. in Las Vegas at the intersection of Lake Mead and Tenya near Summerlin.   Visit their web site at to check out the full menu.

You can't miss this place with its eye-poping neon trim.
