Best Burgers In Las Vegas

February 13, 2012 12:29 PM

In Las Vegas, everything seems a little bigger and a little flashier than normal — even the humble hamburger, which has been tricked out, jazzed up and turned upside-down by the city’s bevy of creative chefs. In other words, this is no ordinary sandwich; it’s more like excitement on a bun. — Ty Treadwell

The old-fashioned burger joint gets an infusion of gourmet flair at BLT Burger, brainchild of esteemed chef Laurent Tourondel. In addition to snazzy versions of the classic beef burger, you’ll also find burgers made from lamb, salmon and even a falafel burger for veggie lovers. Fries come in every size and shape imaginable — from skinny to fat to waffle — and grown-ups will enjoy the special selection of spiked milkshakes made with a variety of liquors.

The choices at Burger Bar are enough to make your head spin. Beef lovers can pick from Kobe, Black Angus or Hereford, while adventurous diners might opt for buffalo or turkey. Then you’re free to add your own selection of toppings from a long list of cheeses, cold and grilled veggies, and sauces. Ready to escalate your burger to the level of fine dining? Then try the Surf & Turf Burger (Black Angus beef and half a grilled lobster) or the Rossini, which combines Kobe beef with foie gras, truffles and a savory sauce.

Every table at Stripburger is outside, which suits the clientele of this easy, breezy burger haven just fine. Stripburger’s credo is to provide good burgers at a good price, with the added bonus of the strip-front view. The burgers are mostly old-school, with expected toppings like cheddar, mushrooms and bacon, but the fry selection does get a little daring with choices like garlic herb fries and spicy atomic cheese fries. A menu of affordable drinks — including a few special jumbo-sized cocktails — makes Stripburger an even more inviting place to kick back and watch the traffic flow by.

A throwback to the rough and tumble burger joints of the past — including an intriguing mix of biker/cowboy flair — LBS serves up a good selection of burgers at prices that won’t drain your wallet. Choices range from no-frills burgers like the Classic and Plain Jane to The Perfect Burger, which comes with bacon, gruyere cheese, oven-roasted tomatoes and red onion marmalade. You can also assemble a customized burger from the Do-It-Yourself menu, where guests select their own meat, cheese, toppings and sauces.
