UPDATE: You can now find an In-N-Out location at the LINQ Las Vegas entertainment district
Can we ever get enough good, cheap, hamburgers that will compete with In-N-Out Burgers? That would seem like a statement out of most people that are very familiar with the Southern California burger chain that has now expanded to various locations in the west. Las Vegas is home to an In-N-Out burger but it also has Smash Burger, Shake Shack, Five Guys, Umami Burger and White Castle.
You can be sure that In-N-Out loyalist will never tell you that some of these other burger joints are good but if you want to do your very own taste test, Las Vegas is a great spot for your burger research.
As for In-N-Out Burger the burger pictured above is the 4-by-4 and it is exactly what you would expect, a lot of meat with just enough cheese and a soft bun. You can get the extras on it but a plain burger is at good as it gets. They don't do chicken sandwiches or hot dogs or salads so if you need a good, cheap burger that is no nonsense, In-N-Out is a really good bet in Las Vegas.

What it’s like at In–N–Out Burger Las Vegas?
A simple burger place with extraordinary burgers for a very low price. The walls are white, the employees wear white and the place is a clean version of a fast food burger joint. The only difference is the never-ending crowds of people who have to have a burger with grilled onions and fresh cut fries.

How’s the food at In–N–Out Burger Las Vegas?
While on a road trip in the Southwestern United States the one constant remark I heard about Las Vegas was the need to stop at In-N-Out Burger. Each state I stopped in I heard the same thing, “you have to have an In-N-Out burger.” I wanted to explain that I grew up on the onions and fries and the burgers that demand you become addicted at In-N-Out but I refrained.
So, I’ll say it, this might be the best burger in Las Vegas. Need I say more? The In-N-Out Burger in Las Vegas that is closest to the Las Vegas strip is just across I-15 on Tropicana. You could actually walk there from the strip or take a cab. Either way you will be very pleased with In-N-Out Burger in Las Vegas and you will start telling everyone you know about it.
Why is In-N-Out Burger so good?
After a recent introduction to Whataburger in the state of Texas I realized why there is this love affair with In-N-Out burger. First, the burgers at Whataburger are great and they make most fast food burgers look like the stuff that your junior high school cafeteria was serving. What makes In-N-Out burgers so different is that they have a distinct taste.
They do not taste like a charbroiled burger from your neighborhood burger shack. They taste like a completely different product. I think it is the combination of sauce and onions and a lot of salt, but that difference is why people go crazy. Even though I grew up on these I still choose Five Guys and Shake Shack over them but you need to make your decision on this burger dilemma.
Have at it! Las Vegas might be the burger capital of the United States.
