8 Great Places for Fast Food on the Strip

Need a quick bite that’s not only cheap and convenient but also delicious? It’s easy to find fast food restaurants in a tourist destination like the Las Vegas Strip, but sometimes it helps to do a little research. While it’s easy to google the nearest McDonald’s or Starbucks, you may prefer a few more not-so-obvious fast food options. Check out these top picks for fast food on the Strip

Forum Food Hall

Welcome to a completely different kind of food court. No overexposed, worn-out chains here. Instead, the Forum Food Hall brings together an interesting collection of compelling quick-serve dining concepts at Caesars Palace. Just walk up to the counter and order. Highlights include DiFara Pizza from New York, TaCo for Mexican street food and the Halal Guys for Mediterranean-inspired bowls. The latest addition is Bobby’s Burgers with inventive hamburgers, fries and shakes by celebrity chef Bobby Flay. Feel free to bring your order into the brand-new Stadia Bar for sports viewing.

Caesars Palace Las Vegas (from USD $94.00 )

Head towards the smooth marble pillars on the Strip to experience the timeless features of Caesars Palace in the modern age.

The LINQ Promenade


Are East Coast visitors ready to see what the fuss is all about? In-N-Out Burger is a California-based chain that limits locations to southwest regions of the country to preserve the freshness of its meats. The menu is surprisingly small and simple, which only reinforces a single philosophy: Do a few things and do ’em well. In this case, burgers, french fries, and shakes.

In-N-Out Burger has an off-Strip location near Tropicana and Interstate 15 (with a drive-thru) and a walk-up version at The LINQ promenade. Burgers are grilled fresh, so lines often get notoriously long, but the team is well trained to keep things moving. 

The LINQ Las Vegas (from USD $32 )

The LINQ, originally built as the Imperial Palace in 1959, has been reborn into a great, cost-effective hotel at the center of the Las Vegas Strip.

Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips

It’s fair to say Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips is by far the most casual of the celebrity chef’s five Las Vegas restaurants. The food is ordered from a walk-up counter and is ideal for those on the run or ready for a quick bite in a small dining room. Almost everything is fried, including British pub favorites like Fish n’ Chips or Bangers and Mash. The restaurant is easily accessible outdoors from The LINQ promenade and has an engaging English flair. Make sure to snap a selfie in front of a vintage red telephone booth.

Tacos El Gordo

Tacos El Gordo has three Las Vegas locations, but the one on the Strip is semi-legendary, frequently drawing crowded lines out the front door. You’ll find it near the Peppermill and across the street from the brand new Resorts World casino. The family-owned restaurant specializes in authentic Tijuana-style tacos with fresh ingredients and a variety of meats. Count cabeza (beef head), buche (pork stomach) and lengua (beef tongue) among your options.

Stripburger & Chicken

This burger joint is a Vegas original, earning loyal fans over the years at the Fashion Show Mall on the Strip. Customers get their money’s worth with burgers and chicken sandwiches stacked high with fresh ingredients. If you’re having a tough time making a decision, ask for the mini-burger sampler with bleu cheese, cheddar and whiskey BBQ. Anything you order will pair well with a boozy milkshake. Happy hour runs Monday-Thursday 3:30-6:30 p.m. at the bar.   

Taco Bell Cantina

The Las Vegas Strip is home to one of the first-ever Taco Bell Cantinas in the country. Just look for it on the corner of Harmon Avenue. The two-level fast-food restaurant has a different menu from your typical Taco Bell, serving up fun items like rolled chicken tacos and mini-quesadillas. In a uniquely Vegas-focused twist, the Taco Bell Cantina also mixes boozy slushies on the spot with your choice of alcohol and has an upstairs wedding chapel with a DJ booth and Taco Bell-themed ceremonies.

Shake Shack

Shake Shack is one of the fastest-growing fast food chains in the country, but there’s only one on the Las Vegas Strip. You’ll find it at the outdoor promenade in front of the New York New York resort. It’s an easy walk to the T-Mobile Arena and Park Theater, making it a welcome, convenient choice for trying frozen custard shakes and ShackBurgers made with a custom ground-beef blend.
