Where To Find a Cheap (yet, decent) Burger in Las Vegas

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 me, you prefer the middle ground. McDonald’s, White Castle, and Johnny Rockets can be eaten at home, but a $40 burger is excessive.

I wanted to put together a rundown of cheap burgers, both on the Strip and Fremont Street that provide a solid burger, at a price that’ll preserve your bankroll.

To qualify, options needed to be priced at around $15-$20. As you’ll see, there is some great value out there, especially in downtown Las Vegas!

Of course, prices change often. I’ll do my 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.

Cheap Burgers 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… but don’t accidentally order the rice instead of the fries like I did…

Honestly, pretty darn satisfying for $5.99.

Shake Shack at NYNY: Although “fast-casual” and pretty darn close to being considered a fast food option, Shake Shack at New York New York offers some of the cheapest (and delicious) burgers on the Strip.

Fatburger: With locations at both Excalibur and The Venetian, Fatburger serves burgers in various sizes that range from a 1/3 to a full pound. Although fries and drinks are sold separately, a meal can easily be constructed for around $15 or less.

Blondies at Planet Hollywood: Also offering one of my favorite “all you can drink deals“, Blondies offers a 1/2 lb. cheeseburger on a brioche bun for around $15.

Buffalo Wild Wings at Planet Hollywood: You have one in your hometown, and know what to expect. Just know that BWW has a location in the Miracle Mile Shops at PH.

Ketchup at Planet Hollywood: Another hidden gem in the Miracle Mile Shops, Ketchup offers an assortment of burgers at price points starting at $10 – $15 in addition to several solid drink deals.

America at NYNY: Offering some of the cheapest burgers on the Strip (that aren’t fast food), America offers a half-pound American burger with fries for around $15 in addition to other inexpensive options.

I recently snagged breakfast at America and found it to be completely adequate – A solid budget-friendly option that will neither disappoint nor blow you away.

Broadway Burger at NYNY: Tucked within the themed Greenwich Village section of NYNY that is fun to walk through, Broadway offers several cheap burgers which include fries and a drink for around $20.

Backstage Deli at Luxor: One of the least expensive non-fast food burgers on the Las Vegas Strip, Backstage offers a cheeseburger with your choice of fries or chips for under $20.

Beer Park at Paris: In addition to stunning views of the Bellagio Fountains from its rooftop perch, Beer Park serves a “Beer Park Cheeseburger” at a relatively inexpensive price point.

Wahlburgers at Horseshoe: Located out in front of Horseshoe 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.

Yard House at LINQ: Located along the LINQ Promenade, Yard House serves a solid lineup of burger meals at a sub $20 price point. In addition to beef patties, they even serve a pork burger, something I haven’t seen before.

In N Out at LINQ: Yeah, it’s a chain, but In N Out serves the best cheap burger on the Strip for my money. Nothing beats the fresh tomato, onion, and lettuce stacked on a cheesy patty.

Nine Fine Irishmen: Also at NYNY, Nine Fine Irishmen offers a standard burger with Irish cheddar, Irish bacon, lettuce, tomato, and caramelized onions for $20.

PrimeBurger at The Venetian: Located in the Grand Canal Shoppes, PrimeBurger serves 8 burgers comprised of ground chuck, short rib, and brisket for $15-$20, depending on your selection.

Grand Lux Cafe at Venetian: Representing a strong value, the Double Smash Cheeseburger, with two beef patties is served with fries and will only set you back a hair over $15.

Grand Lux is also open 24-hours, meaning you can get your burger fix regardless of what time it is.

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 under $20… but you should add bacon for $3…

Ellis Island: An honorable mention, Ellis Island is located just off the Strip a short walk behind Horseshoe. Hamburgers at Ellis’ Villiage Pub & Cafe are almost all sub-$15 and I recommend ordering the 50/50 burger which is 50% beef, and 50% ground bacon.

Freedom Beat at Downtown Grand: While the Freedom Beat Burger which comes complete with cheddar cheese, lettuce, and pickle is pretty inexpensive to begin with ($16), it’s eligible for DTG’s “Gambler’s Special”. Simply accumulate 25 points in the casino to receive 50% off your meal. Not bad if you plan to gamble a bit anyway.
