Viva Las Vegas: First stop Baker, Ca

Hello! I'm back from my mini-vacation to Las Vegas. We go to Vegas almost three times a year because it's fairly inexpensive (if you don't gamble a ton!), has tons of fun food places, tons of people-watching and fun pools. This trip wasn't much different. We scored a deal for a cheap room at Mandalay Bay and decided to check it out. This was my first stay there.

(And my camera battery died halfway through the trip so I had my friend Tiffany and my sister Sarah take a lot of pictures for me.)

We live about 4 hours away from Las Vegas. We stopped in Baker, Ca for lunch. Mad Greek was a big hit.

The lines were long! Tons of people lined up, in the drive-thru and sitting down to eat. I was kind of surprised. Baker has tons of fast food options yet other people wanted to avoid that route. Love it! Fast food is the worst part about road trips in my opinion.

The gyro. It's full of cucumbers, gyro meat (beef/lamb blend), tomatoes, tzatziki sauce and minced onions. The pita bread is soft and fresh, the meat is warm and flavorful and the tzatziki is so garlicy!

The rice pilaf that comes on the side has tons of flavor too. Usually I find rice to be boring.

017

I'm telling you this sauce is garlicky with huge chucks of fresh cucumber. It's delicious but bring some gum with you just in case.

018

We left the Mad Greek and headed to VEGAS.

Clearly I am practicing my squats. Jillian and Jackie would be proud.

I've passed by Mad Greek so many times on the way to Vegas and never thought to stop. I'll definitely give it a try next time.

My husband would be so jealous if he heard you go to Vegas that often! We went once for his sister's wedding 3 years ago and he's been talking about going back ever since.

I've always wanted to try the Mad Greek. I always pass it when I drive to Vegas, but never really stopped. Luckily I'm taking a trip to Vegas in the coming weeks, so I've got to remember to take little pitstop.
