The more upscale version of a Burger King the BK Whopper Bar at Rio has closed to make room for Smashburger which is due to open in the properties Masquerade Tower as Caesars Entertainment broadens its relationship with Smashburger.
The former BK Whooper Bar which we reviewed in the past was known for traditional Burger King fare but with things such as more exotic toppings on a build it itself burger.
Smashburger is one of the numerous higher quality burger chains that have exploded in recent times and have looked for Las Vegas outposts such as long time West Coast favorite In and Out Burger as well as newer entrants such as the Shake Shack and The Habit.
The deal with Smashburger also includes a location at Harrahs Laughlin and if the Rio location works i wouldn’t be surprised if a location opens at one of the numerous Caesars Entertainment properties on the Strip.
