This is my new found love. This burger is leaps and bounds better than most burgers you will find anywhere. It if filled with Iberico pork and explodes with so much flavor that you will consume two of them rapidly and then consider ordering another pair. This is a foodies dream come true.
Simply the best. Not cheap but amazing. The beef taste like the best beef you have ever had and the foie gras will make you weep with its rich flavor. You might cry when you have this "holy grail" of fancy burgers. It’s not the burger you have while watching a hockey game and drinking a beer but it is the burger you’ll have when you are seeking something spectacular.
Plenty of people are very excited about this burger and if you try to have a seat you'll realize that a 45 minute wait to have a burger seems excessive. However, the burger is above average and the bread is amazing. They do the little things right and their is a good chance you might say it is one of the best you have ever had.

When you have a burger at KGB: Kerry's Gourmet Burgets at Harrah's Las Vegas you realize that a few hours went into deciding how best to procure to right meat, combine the right flavors and deliver them in a space where things just feel right. Add in some vodka and a cool, casual vibe and you're looking at one of the new gems on the Las Vegas strip that is actually affordable.

The I Love Bacon will make any pork loving fanatic squeal and the beer lovers will be impressed with their over 40 selections. They have a kids menu in a kid friendly environment and the shakes actually taste like shakes. I love Burgers does a Parm Burger for the veggie lover in the family and if you decide to build your own you start off with an above average burger in The Standard.
This might be the new best burger in Las Vegas. Juicy, tasty, inventive and all for the right price. This is not for the novice burger aficionado. If you know burgers, you will love BLT at the Mirage. You might want to save a little space for a milkshake, yes, you'll be having a beer but it is worth a try.
The Korean "Bull" Gogi burger at Holsteins at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas has converted me into one of those guys who feels the burger is more than a simple American icon and instead a canvas for multi-cultural, culinary experimentation. Sweet soy marinated beef, over-easy fried egg, kimchee slaw, chili mayo and kalbi glaze between a soft bun that allows just a bit of the slightly spicy juices to permeate the toasted surface. You get sweet, you get spicy and then the curious flavor of an egg. I shouldn't like it, but I do.
While traveling in the Southwest everyone seemed so eager to share their favorite food stories with me. So much so that I soon realized that the common theme was that the best burger in Las Vegas was In-N-Out Burger. Of course, I tried to explain that I like to sit and watch a game at a bar and have a burger. Hence, I like a cold beer with my beef between the buns, to no avail, everyone frowned on my assumption that the perfect burger in Las Vegas must be accompanied by a beer. People really love In-N-Out burger and they are correct, In-N-Out Burger is quite amazing, just don't expect to have a beer and don't expect to pay too much. In-N-Out is easilythe cheapest meal on this list.
With a view of all of Las Vegas and a wine list that will help you digest a burger that will delight you, this is one of the hidden gems in Las Vegas for a memorable lunch. Don't waste your time here for dinner, the middle of the day is when you should be eating a burger with a view of the strip.

The dining room is casual and the burgers are worth every bit of the $10 price tag. I usually sit at the bar and have a burger that is best as plain as possible. Don't waste time with condiments, the mark of a good burger can be identified when the meat between the bread needs no help. The Burger Bar at Mandalay Place can serve you an outrageously expensive burger but all you need is the simple Angus burger and you will be fine. You should also be aware of the beer selection at Burger Bar, it is one of the best on the strip.
Wolfgang Puck can make a burger?, Yes, it is a simple thing to construct but a good hamburger takes skill and the people at Postrio at the Venetian can deliver a quality burger in Las Vegas. Sit outside and watch the people in the Piazza at the Venetian. Order a bold red wine and get comfortable with a burger that you will not soon forget.
