They haven’t been around for a very long time, but the folks at Flippin’ Good Chicken, Burgers, Beer have made quite the impression in the short time since they first opened in 2014. Locals love them, and the tourists who stumble upon them fall in love at first bite.
While most people tend to rave about the chicken sandwiches, one of the hidden gems at this local restaurant is their burgers. Get one topped off with a dippy egg, or order a more classic one and top it off with their honey sauce!
Whatever you choose, you’re going to love it. You can pair your burger with some fresh-cut fries and order a frozen custard concrete for dessert. There’s no way you’ll still be hungry after a visit here!
“I tried the Old Fashion burger and it had the perfect amount of toppings with very crisp pickles....There is a honey sauce on the table that is so so good. I drizzled it on everything!” - Yelp Review

Neighborhood: The Strip
A casual dining cafe located in the food court of the Excalibur Hotel in Las Vegas probably isn’t the first place you’d think to find a good burger while you’re in the city, but that doesn’t mean you should pass it by completely.
While it may seem unassuming when you first pass by Breakfast & Burgers as you walk through the Excalibur Food Court, this little restaurant has some of the best burgers in all of Las Vegas.
Swing by after a long day of seeing all that vegas has to offer to get yourself a massive burger (many people suggest splitting one between two people) and some crispy tater tots. Now that’s what we call the perfect way to round out your day!
“The nice thing about here is they make everything fresh but are still quick. We have learned to split the burger and fries as it’s too much for just one of us and this way it is the perfect amount.” - Yelp Review

While it bears the name of a chain restaurant, R Burgers is the only one you’ll find in all of Nevada - let alone Las Vegas. Based in California, it’s a beloved piece of home for Californians who’ve just moved to the city and a pleasant surprise for people who’ve never experienced their burgers before.
They offer more than just burgers (including breakfast and Mexican cuisine) if you want to bring along some friends who aren’t as into burgers as you are. Order a classic double cheeseburger or try one with an onion ring on top for a new twist.
“This is the first eating establishment I have been in 8 weeks… The hamburgers here are juicy, delicious, and well worth the drive! The fries are great… The employees are kind and responsible.” - Yelp Review
Address: 467 E Silverado Ranch Blvd, Ste 100, Las Vegas, NV 89183
Looking for a guilty pleasure burger you can indulge in and not feel the least bit guilty about finishing because it’s just that good? Slater’s 50/50, originally established in California, has migrated to Las Vegas, and you won’t want to miss out on what they have to offer.
Their patties are made up of 50% ground beef and 50% ground bacon, which results in what they like to call Excesstasy™ with every single bite. Is it an overwhelming amount of meat to bite into? Absolutely. But is it worth your blood pressure raising a little bit for the night? Absolutely.
Every burger is speared with a serrated knife to help you make you burger a little easier to swallow (quite literally). We recommend pairing your burger with one of the many local craft beers they have on tap!
“Burgers burgers burgers! Slater's has a huge variety of them! Even an awesome, build-your-own burger option. I've never seen such unique ingredients on a build-you-own-burger menu before.” - Yelp Review

You’ve definitely never tried a burger with these flavors before. Image courtesy of Fukuburger Instagram.
It’s true that a classic burger will satisfy any cravings you have for a burger, but isn’t Vegas all about trying things that you never would have tried otherwise? FukuBurger is your chance to try one of those new things without stepping too far outside of your comfort zone.
The familiar thing about their recipes? The meat patties (and the buns)! What’s unfamiliar is the Japanese cuisine they’ve fused with the burgers that you know and love.
Once merely operating out of a food truck, Fukuburger has since expanded to open up their own restaurant in Chinatown, and you definitely won’t want to miss out on the opportunity to try something this delicious!
“Best burger in Vegas!! We would have never ordered a burger with this much stuff on it - but trust the menu and give it a try, you will NOT be disappointed.” - Yelp Review

You’re going to love the smokey, charred exterior of these charburgers. Image courtesy of The Habit Burger Grill Instagram.
They say that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result, but in our very humble opinion, there is nothing insane about returning to The Habit Burger Grill time and time again.
One might even say you want to make a habit (ha!) of it if you want to continuously experience some of the best burgers in Las Vegas. Their charburgers are reminiscent of some Santa Barbara, California favorites.
When you eat one of these babies, it’ll almost feel like you’re being transported to the beaches of Santa Barbara - whether you’ve been there or not! The charbroil they cook them in makes a crispy, smoky exterior with a juicy interior that’s making us salivate already.
“The burger was outstanding!! My favorite part about the burger was the perfectly grilled sourdough bread. It was toasty on the outside and fluffy on the inside. It was light and airy, not dense and thick like the other guys.” - Yelp Review

If you’re looking for a way to taste some of your favorite celebrity chefs’ recipes, Las Vegas is definitely the place to go to get your chance. Celebrity chefs are notorious for setting up shop along The Strip after they’ve made a name for themselves, and tourists and natives alike eat it up (literally).
While Hubert Keller is lesser known among many of the big-name celebrity chefs who have made their marks over the years, that doesn’t mean his food is any less quality than what you might find from someone like Gordon Ramsay.
A Frenchman who was trained by some of the top chefs of France, Hubert Keller has brought his expertise to the United States in the form of some pretty unforgettable burgers. Enjoy your burger with one of the wide selection of beers they have on tap at their bar.
“A burger that lived up to the hype. Everything in Vegas has a big name chef behind it but often they are just another restaurant. Hubert Keller's Burger Bar, however, was truly good.” - Yelp Review

If you don’t want to relegate yourself to trying only one of Vegas’s many celebrity chef menus, you won’t want to skip out on Bobby’s Burger Palace either if you really find yourself craving some burgers while you’re in the city.
In fact, why not put together your own, untelevised Celebrity Top Chef where you get to be judge while you’re staying in Las Vegas? Who will come out on top with the best burgers in Las Vegas: Hubert Keller or Bobby Flay?
Bobby Flay has certainly made a name for himself, so regardless of whether you decide to stick with just one celebrity chef restaurant or to try a whole slew of them, we have a feeling you won’t be disappointed with the menu that Bobby has put together here.
“I'm a huge Food Network fan so I loved coming to Vegas and trying Bobby's restaurant! Service was great and my brunch burger was even better. I loved the bacon, cheese, and the runny egg topped it all off.” - Yelp Review
