In Las Vegas for one reason or another and not in the mood to stuff yourself silly at any of their all-you-can-eat buffet restaurants? There are lots of great fast food restaurants in the area that you can turn to instead. So if you’re after just a quick bite in between sightseeing or doing some business in Sin City, look up these spots to get your fill:
Hailed as the home of the best chicken tenders in the country, Raising Cane’s may not necessarily be the most famous pick on the list but it’s a great place to head to if you’re hankering for some finger foods. They only really offer chicken fingers and some of the tastiest sides available today but you’ll surely enjoy every bite. Since their food is made with high-quality ingredients and made fresh in store, you’re guaranteed a different fast food experience here. One of our favorite things at Raising Cane’s is The Caniac Combo, and although it costs about $11.43, it is suitable for at least 2 people.
What to get: Chicken Tenders, Texas toast, Coleslaw
Chick-fil-A’s food is always worth a stop whenever you’re in the vicinity of one of its stores. They offer some of the tastiest fast food fare with their chicken sandwich being hard to beat as the best there is. They’re also hailed as America’s No. 1 fast-food restaurant in 2019, thanks to their menu variety, tasty meals, staff behavior, and cleanliness.
What to get: Chicken Sandwich, Chicken Nuggets, Iced Tea, Hash Browns
When it comes to fast food, sandwiches are some of the best options. They’re very quick to make, easy to eat, filling, and customizable to satisfy your cravings. These are exactly what Texas Meltz offer with a bonus of making them extra big. Best known for their Texas-sized servings, you’ll get your fix of cheese and meat with their offerings.
What to get: The Dallas Sandwich, Smoked Meatz, French Fries
Fancy some quick French cuisine? La Cantine got you covered with their French-themed sandwiches and charcuterie. It’s basically a French deli, something you don’t see everyday in Vegas. And like anything French-themed, it feels elevated, so dining here can feel like a different experience altogether. Let its vast sandwich menu get you excited and ready for the meal ahead.
What to get: Signature sandwiches, quiches
The Halal Guys
While The Halal Guys started out as a street food stall in New York, it has fully evolved into a fast food chain now, so it’s certainly worth a spot in this list. They offer quick and tasty Halal bites, so if you have a diet restriction or you just want something Halal, then they’re definitely your guys, even in Las Vegas. You also will not be disappointed if you want something spicy because their hot sauce has a Scoville rating of 100,000-130,000.
What to get: Falafel, Combo Platter
Since In-N-Out only has locations in 5 states, there’s a very good chance that you haven’t tried it yet. Your visit to Vegas would be the perfect opportunity to give it a try, too, because it has a location in the very heart of Sin City, right on the Las Vegas Strip. It also helps that it’s practically the cheapest place to grab a bite on the Strip!
What to get: Well-done fries, Grilled Cheese, Double-Double, Animal-style burger of your choice
Another American fast food champion is the Shake Shack. Despite being relatively young, this chain has won the hearts and tummies of Americans all over the country, thanks to its high-quality ingredients. It’s basically the East Coast’s answer to In-N-Out, so if you’re a big fan of that one, you should make sure to sample this alternative as well.
What to get: ShackBurger, SmokeShack, Chick’n Shack
Looking for a classic sandwich place to sate your nostalgic cravings? Jason’s Deli would be a great place to visit for such because they carry some of the best timeless sandwiches. They’re also great for picky eaters as their menu will definitely tickle the fancy of many. And as a bonus, everyone gets free ice cream after their meals, so why not eat here?
What to get: Muffaletta, Garden Fresh Salad Bar, California Club, Reuben THE Great
Soho Sushi Burrito
For something trendy that wouldn’t really push you out of your comfort zone, check out the Soho Sushi Burrito. This joint combines two classics: sushi and burrito so the concept is relatively new but not exactly foreign. It’s also a bit healthier than other fast food options, so if you’re not up for something greasy, this can be a good place to head to.
What to get: 3 Amigos Bowl, Caterpillar Bowl, Twin Dragon Bowl
Like Chick-fil-A, it would be a shame not to eat at a Chipotle if you’re within a mile radius of any of their locations. Why? You’ll be missing out on some good quick food, for starters. It’s more of a fast-casual place, really, but it’s still worth a visit if you don’t want to go to an actual sit-down restaurant in the city.
What to get: Chicken and Black Bean Burrito Bowl, Mexican Chicken Lettuce Wrap Tacos
While all-you-can-eat restaurants are big in Las Vegas, you don’t have to overstuff yourself and spend a lot on your meals during your stay here. These fast food joints will definitely get you full and satisfied without hurting your wallet.
