Because who doesn’t love a cheeseburger?

With all the excitement, Las Vegas is a city where folks sometimes forget to eat. In such a situation, nothing beats a burger. You’ve got all four food groups represented in one giant, comforting handful. You can find a burger almost anywhere, at pretty much any time of day, but here are a few worth making a special trip for.

1. Great Mac Attack Burger at Aces & Ales

Bar, Craft Ale Bar, Restaurant, American, Pub Grub

With a vast array of brews, Aces & Ales is one of Las Vegas’ favorite places to have a beer. But Aces is also known for its deliciously creative takes on standard bar food. Among the enticing array of appetizers and burgers is the Great Mac Attack Burger, which is piled high with house-made ultra-cheesy mac n’ cheese, bacon and more cheese. You’ll be full for the day.

2. Bone Marrow Burger at Eureka!

Located in a building that’s been doctors’ offices and an art gallery, Eureka! has an industrial-chic style and tweaked American menu that fit in well with the East Fremont Street scene. There are nine types of burgers, including turkey, veggie, bison and short rib—all are tasty. However, the standout is the bone marrow burger, which is slathered in shiitake bone marrow butter for melt-in-your-mouth flavor.

4. Buta Burger at Fukuburger

Food Truck, Restaurant, American, Fusion

Like a number of Vegas restaurants, Fukuburger started out as a food truck but has added a walls-and-roof location in Chinatown. Fukuburger has a limited menu, but it’s definitely quality over quantity, with a half-dozen intriguingly topped burgers. The Buta Burger combines bacon, American cheese, pickled red onions, red ginger, Japanese BBQ sauce and wasabi mayo for an east-meets-west flavor.

5. Al Pastor Burger at Holsteins Shakes & Buns

Hotel Restaurant, Restaurant, American, Ice Cream

Located in the Cosmopolitan, Holsteins Shakes & Buns specializes in sweet treats and burgers. There are over a dozen different specialty burgers, from the Capreasy with pesto and burrata to “The Rising Sun” with tempura avocado and crispy yam. The Al Pastor is topped with pork, pineapple and habanero cream for a spicy-sweet flavor.

6. B Side Burger at House of Blues

The Las Vegas outpost of the House of Blues franchise contains a large music venue, restaurant, and smaller club, as well as a penthouse nightspot. B Side is the small club, which focuses on gastropub fare and little-combo bands. The B Side burger is a unique take on the classic burger, with a blend of provolone and cheddar cheeses, as well as roasted tomato.

7. Double-Double® at In-N-Out Burger

People don’t just eat at In-N-Out Burger—they worship it. The California burger chain has been grilling ’em up and driving ’em through since 1948. The Double-Double® burger is double meat, double cheese and all good. Might we suggest some animal-style fries on the side?

8. Patty Melt at Vickie’s Diner

A late-night Las Vegas institution, Vickie’s Diner serves up two-egg breakfasts, BLTs and lots and lots of coffee to a devoted crowd of regulars. The bright-pink, old-school diner overlooks the Strip—or sit in back to get a view of “That Painting,” a legendary piece of outsider art. The Vickie’s Diner patty melt is a solid version of the classic, awash in creamy melted cheese with peppery grilled onions adding a dash of spice.
