10 Best Places for Burgers In Las Vegas

The burger – simple, classic, and an American favorite. But in Las Vegas, we don’t do simple. Our burgers are a bit like our city – a little flashy and a little over the top.

At Las Vegas burger restaurants, you can find everything from gourmet burgers, local and cult favorites, and build-your-own burgers to unique creations from celebrity and Michelin-starred chefs.

Sink your teeth into these Vegas burgers (with an order of fries, of course) and be sure to wash them down with a cold beer or a frosty milkshake.

Find the very best burgers in Las Vegas here:

1. Burger Bar at Mandalay Bay

Las Vegas restaurants boast some of the best chefs in the world. That holds true for our burger joints, as well. Burger Bar at Mandalay Bay features gourmet burgers from acclaimed French chef Hubert Keller.

The restaurant offers a great build-your-own burger concept. Choose a meat from freshly ground options including Black Angus beef, Kobe beef, lamb, turkey, and more. Next, pick a bun from choices like sesame, onion and ciabatta. Finally, finish your masterpiece with toppings. Choose one or two, or go crazy with an array of options like cheese, avocado, bacon, foie gras, truffles, and tasty sauces.

If you’re not feeling like a culinary creative, you can also order one of the chef’s creations. The namesake Hubert Keller burger features Kobe-style Wagyu, caramelized onions, baby spinach, and blue cheese on a ciabatta bun. The burger is served with the chef’s favorite red wine and shallot sauce.

2. Fukuburger

If you want to venture off the Strip for a burger, local favorite Fukuburger is worth the trip. Fukuburger runs a food truck (one of Vegas’ first) and two standalone restaurants.

Fukuburger’s burgers sport a distinct Japanese twist. Enjoy all the tastes of your favorite juicy burger with complementing bold Asian flavors.

The signature burger is the Fukuburger – an all-beef patty with American cheese, lettuce, tomato, and onions, finished with wasabi mayo and Fuku sauce.

For something more adventurous, try options like the Tamago, topped with a fried runny egg, furikake, crispy onion strings, teriyaki and wasabi mayo; or the Kinoko, with grilled shiitake mushrooms, pickled red ginger, teriyaki sauce, and wasabi mayo.

Don’t forget to pair your burger with Fuku fries topped with togarashi garlic salt and served with ketchup, and crack sauce.

3. Holsteins Shakes and Buns at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

Holsteins Shakes and Buns takes your traditional burgers and kicks them up a notch. Along with beef, there are veggie, turkey and chicken burger options available.

The signature burger at Holsteins is the Gold Standard – a dry-aged sirloin patty with aged goat cheddar cheese, smoked bacon, tomato confit, garlic-chive aioli, and baby arugula.

Holsteins has plenty of other choices from the simple Nom Nom Burger with cheese, potato chips, and Thousand Island dressing, to more complex ones like The Rising Sun. This American Wagyu patty features a kalbi glaze, and is topped with crispy yams, nori furikake, spicy mayo, and tempura avocado.

Don’t miss Holsteins Bam-Boozled Shakes, a grown-up version of a traditional milkshake infused with alcohol.

4. Bobby’s Burger Palace

Celebrity chef Bobby Flay is known for his love of grilling, so it’s no surprise that he opened his own burger restaurant. You can check out his grilled masterpieces on the Strip.

Bobby’s Burger Palace is home to the Crunchburger, Flay’s signature offering topped with American cheese and potato chips. In fact, you can “crunchify” any burger at the restaurant with potato chips on top.

Other burger options include the Bobby Blue + Bacon or a Brunch Burger with fried egg, bacon and American cheese.

5. Shake Shack

What started out as a humble New York City burger stand has turned into a wildly successful worldwide chain that now has six locations in Las Vegas including two on the Strip – at New York-New York and inside T-Mobile Arena.

Shake Shack are a custom blend of 100 percent Angus beef from premium cuts provided by famed meat purveyor Pat LaFrieda.

Start with a classic ShackBurger – a single or double cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, and ShackSauce. Other options include the SmokeShack – a cheeseburger topped with applewood smoked bacon, cherry pepper, and ShackSauce.

You’ll also find local specialty burgers at each Shake Shack. If you’re at a Vegas Golden Knights hockey game, try the Slapshot with Provolone cheese, crispy pickles, onions and garlic mayo.

Don’t miss Shake Shack’s famous frozen custard or its thick, creamy shakes, either.

6. In-N-Out Burger

This West Coast favorite burger chain with legions of fans is definitely worth trying if you’re not lucky enough to have one in your own hometown. Vegas has several locations, but only one on the Strip, which is at The LINQ Promenade. Stop in for the 100 percent fresh beef burgers and fries, and experience what all the hype is about.

Get a classic hamburger or cheeseburger or make it a Double Double if you’re hungry. The burgers come with American cheese, grilled or sliced onion, lettuce, tomato and In-N-Out’s famous sauce.

In-N Out regulars know to order from the “not so secret” menu to get their burger “animal style,” with extra spread, pickles and grilled onions. Other secret options include a protein- style burger wrapped with lettuce, and the 4X4 with four patties.

7. Gordon Ramsay Burger at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino

Famed British chef and brash TV personality, Gordon Ramsay, puts his singular spin on classic American food at Gordon Ramsay Burger.

Ramsay’s gourmet burgers are cooked over an open flame fueled by hard woods to enhance the flavor.

Ramsay fans won’t want to miss his signature Hell’s Kitchen Burger – a spicy mix of Asadero cheese, roasted jalapenos, avocado, roasted tomatoes, and jalapeno aioli.

Another can’t-miss option is the stout burger with Guinness mustard aioli, Gruyere, mushrooms and crispy onion.

Don’t forget the fries or beer battered onion rings. And be sure to save room for the sticky toffee pudding ice cream sandwich for dessert. It would be a crime not to.

8. Bar Code Burger Bar

Bar Code Burger Bar is a popular family-owned locals spot near the Strip, where you can catch a game, enjoy views of the Strip, and indulge in a great burger.

If you’ve been living it up a little too much in Vegas, The Hangover burger is the perfect antidote. It features the house burger blend, American cheese, an over-easy egg, crispy onions, tomato, applewood smoked bacon and Code Sauce, all on a brioche bun.

Healthy options are available at Bar Code Burger, too. Try the Impossible Cheese with a plant-based Impossible Burger accented with melted vegan mozzarella, ketchup, mustard, lettuce, tomato, and onions. A Keto-friendly lettuce-wrapped burger is also offered.

9. Slater’s 50/50

Slater’s 50/50 serves up some of the most unique and delicious burgers around. The restaurant’s name comes from the fact that its signature gourmet burgers are a blend of 50 percent ground bacon and 50 percent ground beef.

This local hot spot has something to satisfy every taste. The Original 50/50 on a brioche bun is a favorite with garnishes of pepper Jack cheese, avocado, a fried egg, and chipotle mayo.

For something fancier, splurge on the 24K Burger. It features a brioche bun and thick-cut bacon, both dusted with glittery 24-karat gold. Its half-pound Wagyu beef patty gets topped with truffle cheese, arugula, jalapeno-bacon jam, and roasted garlic aioli.

It’s a good bet that you won’t find a burger like the P.B. & Jellousy anywhere else. This Black Canyon Angus beef burger on a honey wheat bun is crowned with bacon, natural peanut butter, and strawberry jelly.

All burgers come with regular fries and bacon ketchup or sweet potato fries with pumpkin sauce.

10. Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer at The Venetian

For tasty burgers with a view, you can’t beat Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer. The restaurant offers indoor seating, but the patio seating overlooking The Venetian hotel’s canal and the Strip just can’t be beat.

The secret behind the burgers is that they are flipped only once, and griddled until medium. Burgers are layered with two slices of cheese, and served on a potato roll.

Unique options include a Pizza Burger topped with marinara sauce, fried mozzarella and shaved Parmesan, and the award-winning Greg Norman – a half pound of Wagyu beef, house buttermilk-dill dressing, blue cheese, and arugula.

Black Tap offers a nice selection of craft beers to pair with the burgers, as well as its signature CrazyShake milkshakes. These milkshakes are truly over the top. Think a slice of cake as a garnish, cookies stuck to the rim, or a big cloud of cotton candy on top.

If you’re trying to watch your carbs, don’t worry. Just go for the burger salads that are made with bison, turkey and Impossible burgers.
