Many mourned in the summer of 2013 when Bobcat Bite, the Old Las Vegas Highway mainstay, dimmed the lights on their 29-seater. From its ashes and at a snazzy in-town location, owners Bonnie and John Eckre have rebuilt its essence and added a kids menu, as well as perfected other non-burger items like a healthy assortment of salads (try the wedge for $7.50), local favorites like carnitas street tacos ($11.50) and green chile chicken enchiladas ($12.50), and a slew of steaks and chops. Purists will agree, however, that burgers here are the Eckres’ Sistine Chapel. Feeling daring, I went for the “Big Bite” ($17.95), which is big enough to feed a small village with its 16 ounces of pure, unsullied meat nirvana and is served with fries, salad and garlic bread. OK, you can stick a fork in me now.
