Ribs & Burgers is essentially a backyard cookout in restaurant form. Sure, there are a few salads on the menu, milkshakes laced with booze and probably a better selection of beers than what’s available in your backyard. But everything else is all about the meat. The Old Skool Burger ($9.50) is what your home burgers would taste like if you knew what you were doing, a juicy 6-ounce patty stacked with American cheese, mustard, onion, pickles, mayo and barbecue sauce. Upgrade to the Wagyu burger ($14) or a steak sandwich ($14) with caramelized onions and the tangy R&B pink sauce. Or get down to business with a slab of marinated, slow-cooked lamb ribs ($18), rich and tender meat basted forever with a side of fries and coleslaw. Maybe Ribs & Burgers is more the backyard cookout of your dreams.

Ribs & Burgers Downtown Summerlin, 702-848-1588. Sunday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-9 p.m.; Friday & Saturday, 11 a.m.-10 p.m.
