Las Vegas is famous for a lot of things. Gambling, gangsters, and Celine Dion. Burgers never get a mention in such lists. It’s time that changed! Here is a selection of the finest burgers you can eat in Sin City and where you can find them!

The minute you see the tag-line of “an all American burger with a Japanese twist” how can you not be intrigued? The trademark Fukuburger is the stuff of legend.
All-beef Fukupatty with American cheese, lettuce, onions, tomato, with a drizzle of wasabi mayo and Fuku sauce. Mind-blowing.
Other burgers such as Tamago, Buta, Kinoko, Karai, and Chicken Katsu will also tempt you. The sides of Fukumoco and Naga Dog are also highly recommended.
Fukuburger is one of those few delights that offers something truly different. Not only does Fukuburger operate out of an outlet store on S Jones Blvd but it also has a gourmet food truck.
This food truck does the rounds across the city and potential customers are encouraged to hunt down the location of the truck on social media.
Well, what are you waiting for? Get the Fuku out of here and find that truck!

OK, so you wouldn’t necessarily come all the way to Las Vegas just to try a burger from In-N-Out. It’s the equivalent of driving to New York to visit a Costco. However, sometimes all you crave is the glorious grease of an In-N-Out meal.
The menu is far from complex. Hamburger, cheeseburger, Double-Double, French fries, shakes, and a selection of other beverages.
The franchise has been going since 1948 and they opened its 300th store recently. It might not be for everyone but for those that visit Las Vegas this is where you will find some of the best burgers.
If you are coming to Vegas from outside the US, this is a must try burger.

Don’t panic, this isn’t some tacky spin-off franchise of the Bob’s Burgers TV show.
This is a burger place founded by highly-acclaimed celebrity chef Bobby Flay. Yes, the man behind places such as Mesa Grill in Las Vegas, Bar Americain at the Mohegan Sun, and Gato in New York.
The menu is packed with mouth-watering burgers such as the Crunchburger, Palace Classic, Bobby Blue, and Brunch. There’s also a wide selection of sides, salads, shakes, and other drinks to enjoy.
The history of Bobby’s Burger Palace can be traced back to when Flay was allowed to choose somewhere in America to launch a new burger brand by the Food Network. The television show Food Nation was a huge hit and inspired the Bobby’s Burger Palace brand.
The entire Bobby’s Burger Palace menu is the brain child of Flay himself so there is no denying the quality of the products.

If you want to talk about burger joints that offer an authentic taste of California, you don’t need to look much further than The Habit Burger Grill.
Established back in Santa Barbara in 1969, it has grown to become a cultural institution. The brand has made the Charburger its main selling point. The ingredients are classic – a patty, lettuce, tomato, caramelized onions, pickles, and mayo, all on a toasted bun.
Other favourites on the menu include the roasted garlic portabella charburger, teriyaki charburger, BBQ bacon charburger, and the Santa Barbara charburger.
Sandwiches, salads, sides, and a child-friendly menu means this place appeals to all demographics from free-spirited teenagers to families of four.

Alright, calm down. Before you get too excited, this isn’t a strip club burger bar.
The strip relates to the burger joint’s location on the Las Vegas Strip – cue the mass exhale of disappointment from both the men and ladies there.
Stripburger has actually fast become one of the most highly reputed burger bars in Sin City. One of its charms is that it defines itself as casual dining. A breath of fresh air in an environment where there appears to be pressure on exquisite and fine dining.
The burgers are fairly standard but offer a little twist. There is the mixture of the traditional hamburger and cheeseburger put up against the more innovative Mexican burger and whiskey BBQ burger
Just be aware that if you’re offered a ‘threesome’ by the waiter then they are talking about the order of onion strings, fries, and pickle fries.
You might also want to check out the adult shakes. You’d be foolish not to try the Salted Caramel Bailey’s, Vanilla Vodka Dreamsicle, or the Raspberry with Chambord.
