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 are 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!
