Burger Bar This really is the gourmet burger joint that started it all. Next trip, try the merguez-style spicy lamb burger. Mandalay Place, 702-632-9364.

Fukuburger Asian-inspired, a little bit dirty, deliciously memorable—just like Vegas. Can’t go wrong with the ultra-rich Tamago Burger. Find the truck at

Dispensary Lounge A classically weird watering hole with an undeniably perfect meal. Until you’ve had Dispensary’s Steak Burger, your local eating checklist is incomplete. 2451 E. Tropicana Ave., 702-458-6343.

Fat Choy This gem is best-known for bao, rice and noodles, but its namesake burger boasts short ribs, bacon, a fried egg, cheddar cheese and roasted tomato. Do. Not. Miss. Eureka Casino, 702-794-3464.
