Las Vegas: Five Best Burgers on the Strip

Slideshow SLIDESHOW: Las Vegas: Five Best Burgers on the Strip

Las Vegas is a town for gambling, but it's no fun to roll the dice on lunch and lose...and even though there are plenty of great spots to eat (particularly if you've done well on the slots), too many restaurants get by on the convenience of their location and the punishing desert heat (which makes long walks at lunchtime most unpleasant). One solution is to stick with something that's unlikely to let you down, which is where burgers so often come in. My trip was too short to try every burger on the Strip, but I did manage to find five worthy options, along with a few choice shakes and other extras.

One thing that's good to know before you go: Sin City is not shy about cooking burgers rare. Nearly every place I tried had a very liberal definition of medium-rare, and delivered burgers that were a bright, blushing pink inside. You'll see what I mean in the slideshow.

Here are my top 5 burger finds, ranked in order of deliciousness:

  1. Holsteins »
  2. The Barrymore »
  3. Burger Bar »
  4. Strip Burger »
  5. BLT Burger »
