The Best Burgers on the Las Vegas Strip
Breaking down the best places to eat in Las Vegas is a tough challenge made easier only by categorizing different groups of favorite foods. One item that makes its way to most menus and the majority of “best of” lists is the beloved burger.
The hamburger is a classic American meal option that many grew up eating. Finding the best burgers in Las Vegas can still be tough undertaking because everyone has their own version of what they prefer. Some people are purists and only want ketchup, pickles, and maybe a piece of lettuce adorning their meat patty. While others opt to pile theirs high with different kinds of cheese, aiolis, veggies, and other tasty toppings.
But where will you find the best burger Vegas has to offer? There’s always the standard chains of fast food burgers - Shake Shack, Johnny Rockets, In-N-Out - although, we have a few places in mind with burgers so craveworthy and creative, they’re sure to satisfy any appetite.
Surf, Turf and Air Wagyu Beef Burger
Specialty cuts of beef and an array of signature sauces are the name of the game at TENDER Steak & Seafood in Luxor Las Vegas, but definitely don’t discount the burger. The Surf, Turf and Air Wagyu Beef Burger is best suited for those with the biggest of appetites.
Due to its high quality and preferred taste, wagyu burgers on their own is enough to draw in hungry crowds. However, pair that with Hawaiian blue prawns, crispy duck bacon, and exotic add-ons like horseradish pickles and seaweed artichoke slaw, and you’ve got one decadent, filling, unforgettable burger.
Hubert Keller Burger
We can get on board with a restaurant name that gets straight to the point. Famed chef Hubert Keller goes big when creating a burger-focused dining experience at Burger Bar in Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. It’d only been fitting that he put his name on one of the menu offerings.
The Hubert Keller Burger starts with a buffalo meat patty and is then topped with caramelized onion, baby spinach, blue cheese, red wine, and shallot sauce all tucked within the crusty goodness of a ciabatta bun. The menu offers specialty burgers that are low carb, vegan, and one that’s a spin on surf and turf. Plus, there’s a burger topped with a special “hangover sauce,” a condiment fitting to the Las Vegas lifestyle.
Peanut Butter Crunch Burger
Want a sweet and savory twist on the traditional burger? Then, look no further than Michael Mina's PUB 1842 at MGM Grand. Chef Michael Mina is known for switching up ingredients and flavors to serve up inventive dishes for Vegas crowds. Here you’ll find the Peanut Butter Crunch, one of the Strip’s most iconic burgers, which is topped with pimento cheese, bacon jam, and gets its satisfying crunch from potato chips. Sounds absolutely sinful in the best way possible.
With all the initialisms we can’t help but feel like insiders using slang when we eat at L.V.B. (Las Vegas Blvd) Burgers in the Mirage Resort. So gotta love it when it comes to a unique compilation of piled-high burger options at our fingertips. Far & away, our favorite is the O.S.B (Old School Burger) that gives us the simplistic flavors we’ve come to love.
First, come for the steak. Then, return for the JG Cheeseburger, which is slathered with truffle mayo, brie cheese, yuzu pickle, and served alongside truffle fries. ARIA is known for elevating the Vegas experience in every aspect and it makes sure not to stop short with its dining options.
Take advantage of building your own burger at this casual stop at New York - New York Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. Choose your patty protein and then, start adding on the toppings, which include bruschetta tomatoes, jalapeno bacon, and even shaved ribeye as options.
Diners can also select a burger from the restaurant’s own creations, too, but there’s something about customizing your meal that makes the experience extra satisfying. Might we suggest getting a shake on the side, since this place is known for making theirs extra decadent? We recommend the Junior’s Cheesecake concoction or the Strawberry and Bourbon Custard shake for a sweet finish.
