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.

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.

This was a very nice BBQ experience. A little different, with some creative twists on the menu. The selections and the sauces were very nice, especially the KC version. I didn't like my beer, but that's not their fault. Worth a revisit.

The food was just ok. We ordered cracklins, they were suppose to be salt and vinegar flavored. They tasted like pork rinds I could buy at the store no salt and vinegar flavor at all. The brisket was just ok and the same for the barbecue sauce. Very disappointing. Our service person came over without an introduction or welcome to Mabels. It was our first time there. I found out her name was Hilary on the bill. Not friendly at all! We won’t be back not worth the special trip to the Palms. We thought it would be good because after all it is Michael Symon’s restaurant!

A fantastic experience from start to finish. Our server Kevin really was the best and his passion for service and food shine through. I had an amazing prime rib sandwich and my friend had the turkey BLT. We ordered cracklings to start and had the loaded potatoes and cucumber salad. We finished with a tasty ice cream sandwich to share. The portions are huge and we had lots of leftovers !! I will visit again when in Vegas.

The Sunday all you can eat brunch with signature cocktails is a very good deal. Service and food were great. Only complaint might be that some of the portions were too big. Smaller portions would allow more sampling.

Christmas Day quick dinner before movie. Our server was perfect attentive and helpful. Everything we tried was delicious especially his recommendation of the brisket potatoes. We shared 3 meats and 2 sides among 3 of us and still had left overs.

Thought would be nice change for Christmas Dinner. Good food at reasonable prices however their are very few (2) non-red meat selections. Also sides were very different in that the beans were about a half pint and couldn't be shared yet the loaded fried potatoes could have fed 4. I gave 4 stars for these reasons.

I wanted to try this restaurant, I'm from Cleveland originally, and familiar with Michael Symon from the Food Channel. The environment is more like a sports bar than a nice restaurant. Loud and with lots of big TVs showing sporting events. Food items are all ala carte, like a nice steak restaurant, but not like most BBQ restaurants. Very pricey. The food was good, especially the ribs, but now that I've been there once, I wouldn't go back nor would I tell friends to go. There are better BBQ places in Las Vegas that give you more for less money.

It was very cold, we got sat in an area where there was cold air blowing strongly at us and our food. We ordered all you can eat because it was the cheapest way to try more of the sides but we couldn't finish our first order of food before it was all very cold and we were too cold to sit still in the seats.

Burnt ends had a lot of fat , ribs had too much rub , cracklins had too much salt on them. Macaroni and cheese was very good. We are from the Cleveland area and that Mabel’s is much better.

We went on Thanksgiving. The thanksgiving offering of smoked turkey and the regular menu items were fantastic as was the service. I rated the ambiance as a 3 due to our being seared upstairs in the loft area where there was only us and another table. It was also cold up there. The atmosphere down stairs was great that we could tell.

Your greeted immediately with a warmth and smiles. Our server was very helpful and informative. The food is all about BBQ and it did not disappoint! The table had a variety of sauces to try... all were good. We ordered the pig parts which were delicious. Then we tried the giant beef rib and amazing pork belly! So good and flavorful! The sides were just as good... we’re talking Mac n’ cheese and cornbread! Yum! Generous portions left us full and there were leftovers to enjoy later! Definitely will be coming back for sure!! Great service and delicious food!!
