When it comes to burgers in Las Vegas, your options are all over the map. On one end of the spectrum are low-quality fast food options, and on the other are ritzy designer burgers that cost a fortune. If you’re anything like us, you prefer the middle ground. McDonald’s, White Castle, and Johnny Rockets can be eaten at home, but a $40 burger is excessive.
We wanted to put together a rundown of cheap burger options in Las Vegas, both on the Strip and Fremont Street that provide a solid burger, at a price that will preserve your bankroll.
To qualify for the compilation of cheap burgers downtown or on the Strip, options needed to be priced at about $15 or below. As you’ll see, there is some great value out there, especially in downtown Las Vegas!
Of course, prices change often. We’ll do our best to keep this post up to date but will also link out to each restaurant’s menu so that you can double-check pricing before making the trip.
Where to Find a Cheap Burger on the Strip
Ocean One at Planet Hollywood: Found in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood, Ocean One offers one of the cheapest sit-down burgers on the Las Vegas Strip as part of their $5.99 lunch menu. Ocean One’s 1/2 lb. Sirloin Burger comes with your choice of seasoned fries, coleslaw, or rice and is sincerely good, and filling, for the price. Highly recommended for those looking for a budget burger.
Shake Shack at New York New York: Although “fast-casual” and pretty darn close to being considered a fast food option, Shake Shack at New York New York offers one of the cheapest burgers on the Strip at around $7 each. While not a sit-down restaurant per se, Shake Shack is a great option for those looking for an inexpensive burger.
Fatburger: With locations at both Excalibur and The Venetian, Fatburger serves a 1/3 lb. burger for $6.99, a 1/2 lb. burger for $8.35, and a 1 lb. burger for $13.49. Although fries and drinks are sold separately, Fatburger represents a solid burger deal on the Strip. There are also locations at Excalibur and Venetian.
Buffalo Wild Wings at Planet Hollywood: While BWW is known primarily for their selection of wings, they do offer inexpensive burger meals under $15 in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood. Check out their “All American Cheeseburger Lunch Combo” which includes fries and a drink for $10.

Backstage Deli at Luxor: One of the least expensive non-fast food burgers on the Las Vegas Strip, Backstage offers a 1/4th lb. cheeseburger on a brioche bun for a mere $13. Fries are an additional $4, but your total will still be pretty darn close to $15.
Wahlburgers at Bally’s: Located out in front of Bally’s in the colorful Grand Bazaar Shops, Wahlburgers offers a 1/3 lb. hamburger complete with lettuce, tomato, onions, and pickles for under $15. Note that sides are separate and adding fries will set you back around $5. Still a pretty cheap burger by Strip standards.

Tom’s Urban at NYNY: Located in the front facade of New York New York, Tom’s offers an All American Burger complete with Angus beef, and American cheese, served on a brioche bun with garlic fries for $17.
Ellis Island: An honorable mention making our list of cheap burgers on the Las Vegas Strip is Ellis Island, which is located just off the Strip a short walk behind Bally’s. Hamburgers at Ellis’ Villiage Pub & Cafe are almost all below $15 and we suggest the 50/50 burger which is 50% beef, and 50% ground bacon. How could you go wrong?
Where to Find a Cheap Burger Downtown Las Vegas
Binion’s Deli: Offering quick, inexpensive food, Binion’s Famous Burger can be had for a mere $7.49, or you can upgrade to the Double Burger for $10.99. Items are served a la carte, so sides are extra.

Simply accumulate 25 points in the casino to receive 50% off your meal. Not bad if you plan to gamble a bit anyway.
Market Street Cafe at The Cal: Market Street offers the Cal Cheeseburger for $10.99 and their Teriyaki Burger for $11.99. Sides are not included and fries cost an additional $3.99.
