Some may think hamburger restaurants are a dime a dozen, but there is a big difference between eating an average one and another from a gourmet chef like Gordon Ramsay. Besides gambling and entertainment, Las Vegas is also known for its dining and always keeps up with the latest foodie trends. That being said, every celebrity chef in town seems to have his or her own burger restaurant, with Wahlburgers expected to be next in line to open on the Vegas Strip. Until then, here are the Top 3 burger joints...
Burger Bar – You won’t find more burger options in a better atmosphere than Burger Bar at Mandalay Place between Mandalay Bay and the Luxor. Burger connoisseurs can choose between the best varieties of beef, buffalo, turkey, vegetarian and vegan products along with a wide range of gourmet condiments and bun options. Created by famous restaurateur Hubert Keller of Fleur de Lys, there are Sweet Burgers offered for dessert as well such as the Chocolate Burger and Creamy Cheese Cake Burger. You can also build your own milkshake or try one of the chef’s specialties like a beer float.
Umami Burger – Nestled at the front of the SLS Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, Umami Burger offers their guests the opportunity to eat gourmet food, drink craft beers and/or bet on sports at the convenient Sportsbook sportsbook located inside. From the signature Umami Burger – featuring parmesan frico, shitake mushroom, roasted tomato, caramelized onions and Umami ketchup – to the Truffle Burger and Ahi Tuna Burger, there are a number of different delicious options to choose from. Plus, the greens and sides offered are unique, including the Truffled Beet Salad and Maple Bacon Fries.
BurGR – One of Ramsay’s multiple restaurants in Vegas, BurGR is at Planet Hollywood, his chef Christina Wilson and staff cooks their beef patties over an open flame fueled by hard woods, the only burger joint to use that method on the Strip. Featured dishes include the Truffle Burger, Hog Burger and Hell’s Kitchen Burger from Ramsay’s hit TV show, giving guests hot new takes on the popular American sandwich.
