Food Network Iron Chef and James Beard winner Michael Symon brings his beloved Cleveland barbeque restaurant, Mabel's BBQ to Palms Casino Resort. Offering a Las Vegas inflection to the classic American culinary tradition, Mabel’s BBQ showcases classic barbeque staples, blended with Symon’s interpretation of the diverse flavors and cuisines from around the world that make up Vegas’ vibrant city. By incorporating Bertman’s Ballpark Mustard into the barbecue sauce, using Eastern European spices and smoking meat over local fruitwood, Symon has created a barbecue style he can call his own. The space’s arched ceilings, ornate lighting and exposed brick create and inviting & laid-back atmosphere. Friends can kick back and watch the big game while feasting on brisket, pork ribs, wings and loads of pig parts complimented by comfort food sides.

I think we were expecting much more. You think of Chef Symon and the culinary bar is high. All you can eat Meats gives you too much food ... you can’t try anything else if unless you want to waste food. Sides were hit and miss ... meats were good, but not great. Underwhelming.

The food tastes pretty good, but is frankly WAY overpriced, even considering it’s in a casino.

This is the first BBQ place I have ever been to that doesn’t offer a combo plate type meal. Everything is ala carte, but not really big enough to share, unless you only want 2 bites of each thing.

The seats are flat wood, with no cushion. Quite uncomfortable after 15 minutes.

The bread pudding dessert was terrible. Honestly the worst bread pudding I’ve ever tasted.

I ordered a mocktail of a Mule, but honestly it just tasted like pink lemonade. Considering the base was ginger beer and cranberry, I really wondered if I got the wrong beverage served to me.

Considering the draw is this is an Iron Chef restaurant, I was VERY disappointed, and won’t be back.

Had an amazing experience. From the moment I stepped in the restaurant. I was greeted by the hostess and promptly sat at a cozy booth. The waiter was energetic an extremely knowledgeable on the menu. He listed the numerous different hard ciders and blond ale that would suit my taste from memory. When the food arrived he explained the flavor profile of each bbq sauce he presented to the table. The food was delicious. The brisket was so tender and moist. It was best brisket I've ever had hands down. The chicken wings were smoked to perfection. The loaded potatoes OMG. I could go on. Overall a great dinning experience. Would definitely recommend dinning here.

Great staff and very welcoming. But, the food was bland and disappointing. First of all, the menu was different than the online version. All bbq sandwiches were no longer offered. When we asked the server about it, she said they had just changed the menu in the past week. Now, the offerings were tacos, tamales, and burritos with bbq meats. She then went to the kitchen and asked about sandwiches, returning to tell us that we could still get pulled pork sandwiches served Carolina style, which we ordered. While the sandwiches had generous amounts of pork, it was mushy and devoid of smoke flavor. Carolina style bbq is supposed to have a sweet vinegar based sauce with red pepper flakes. These had very little of either, a very bland sandwich. This was very disappointing to us, because we expected so much more from a Michael Symon restaurant. We dined in his Cleveland “Lola” last May, and were amazed.

Have been wanting to try Mabel’s since it opened but wasn’t able to make it in until Sunday 2/9 for the AYCE Brunch, I was blessed that Marisol read my note and was able to give us the amazing Abby as our server. I initially had a 11:30 reservation for two but since I was running late due to a crazy morning I changed it to 12:15 and brought my kids. We got there and Marisol greeted and seated us right away. Abby came to our table with a smile and waters, explaining how the AYCE brunch works and suggesting what to start with while listening to the fact we don’t may not be able to eat everything but that I wanted to try everything.. it was better than I could of dreamed! Thanks so much to Abby, Marisol & Russell the manager for having awesome staff

The food is awesome! We are here for the Superbowl party and even though they had a billing issue at first, they worked through it and we're really glad we're here! We tried a lot of the food...burnt ends, pork ribs, smoked turkey, mac & cheese, cornbread and more. It's all delicious! Our server, Veronica, was very kind and helpful. Great atmosphere. We will come again!!

This is a review for the Big Game Party. They had a slow start with having folks wait in line even though the tables were reserved. But once seated, the food and drinks were both excellent. Service was great as well. Cornbread moist, beans and greens flavorful and ribs were soft and cooked well. Great job! We’ll be back.

Really good BBQ. And sides. Nice selection with different sauces - all good. Drinks a bit on pricey side but it’s an upscale casino. Nicely renovated. Particularly fine pork belly with mustard glaze. Cleveland’s own ballpark mustard.

This was our second time there. We had a reservation and were immediately seated. It did take 5 minutes for us to get acknowledged by a server and another 5 minutes before we were brought water. The server then wanted to take drink, app and dinner orders right then. We politely declined and order drinks and an app. After we were brought those we ordered the rest of our food. Cukes, Mac n cheese and corned read were all spot on. For meats we had the Kc burnt ends, Memphis dry rub ribs, Cleveland pork belly, and the cheddar jalapeño sausage. All the meats were great except the sausage. The taste was good, but it was a little meely in texture. Over the food was great and after the early hiccups, the service was fine.

Great service, food was good.

Felt the meat choices should have included sides. I didn’t like having to pay for the sides separate.

Great customer service, good ambiance. The music was a little loud and I was struggling to hear my party across the table but other then that we had a great dinner experience.

Great service and awesome food. We tried all you can eat/drink brunch. Everything was so good. Overnight oat was surprisingly awesome given we were at a bbq restaurant but obvious it was an Iron Chef’s recipe.
We ordered and tasted every meat. If you go for a brunch, share the plates and try everything. Servers are very attentive and friendly. It is going to be my go-to’ restaurant when in Vegas.
