Goodbye: Cheeseburger Las Vegas

Cheeseburger Las Vegas has closed

Rent Hike Closes Cheeseburger Las Vegas

Cheeseburger Las Vegas has closed-up shop. On Saturday, while I was in Vegas, I headed over to Cheeseburger Las Vegas in a happy mood as I was finally going to try the Island Style burger as recommended by reader GlennT.  I walked the corridors of the Miracle Mile Shops, envisioning the pulled pork I was told of. I was almost certain this was going to be a great lunch. Then I saw the abandoned storefront. Lights off, the sign no longer lit. Darkness on the inside with signs ripped off the wall. The Mai Tai Bar was sans Mai Tai. It was clear Cheeseburger Las Vegas was no more.

One sign did still remain.

Cheeseburger Las Vegas Closed

Do we really have a choice now?

I was told by a proprietor across from the newly vacant space that the rent went up again, which is what caused the closure. This is a shame as another nice, tasty, and favorite food destination by many Vegas visitors is now gone. Here’s an article I wrote on their Blue Banana Burger during happier times.

  1. Oh no!!! This is truly sad news. I’m so sorry you didn’t get a chance to try their Cheeseburger Island Style that I had raved about here. I just hope they re-open in another Vegas location sometime soon. Until then, I’ll need to find another go-to burger place in Vegas. I’ll be keeping an eye out here in case you or your readers find another great burger place that’s too good to pass up!

      Hey, not your fault! I do have a couple more burger reviews as a result of this trip. Might have one up this week and another next week, or both next week.

    Sad. But the silver lining in this article is that we get to see the Aladdin theme in the photos. Aladdin was my first Vegas hotel and I spent a lot of time wondering the Miracle Mile, ahem, Desert Passage.

  3. I can’t go on :-(

      I hear ya, two burger places (including I <3 Burgers) gone within weeks of each other.

  4. Ah, that’s disappointing, as I did enjoy their food on several of my trips. When I was there just a couple of weekends ago, I only gave it a casual glance since we were headed to Blondies, but I couldn’t tell if it was closed at the time or not. If it wasn’t, I wish now I had stopped by one more time!

  5. Like Chris in Nashville said, ” I spent a lot of time wondering the Miracle Mile, ahem, Desert Passage.” I used to go there after I got off work at another property around 1am. It is really cool walking through there when you are more or less alone.

    Another place to get a good, inexpensive breakfast on the strip bites the dust!
