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.
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.
