Fatburger, started in 1952, has become popular by serving good ol’fashioned hamburgers in big, juicy, mouth-watering sizes. The self-described “Last Great Hamburger Stand” has twelve Las Vegas and Henderson locations, including one busy Fatburger restaurant right in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip.
The three Fatburgers on the Strip include one in the Excalibur food court, a new one at the Venetian, and a stand-alone location at at 3763 S. Las Vegas Blvd. It’s right across the street from the Park MGM Hotel and Casino and just next door to a Las Vegas Strip Walgreens.
If you do the long walk between the MGM Grand and Planet Hollywood, you’ll pass right by it.
It’s open until 2 AM seven days a week, and has lots of both indoor and outdoor seating. The seating on the patio can be particularly interesting.
This area, the Fatbar, was the very first franchise to have a Fatbar (more on that below).
Besides the bar, it has shade, music and twenty TVs. And being right on the Las Vegas Strip, the view provides plenty of entertaining people watching opportunities – especially at night when seemingly everyone walking by is inebriated.
You may even have a celebrity sighting or two. Or better yet, even a celebrity fight! This Fat Burger Las Vegas Strip location was home to the widely-reported brawl between rapper T.I. and boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. over Memorial Day weekend in May of 2014.

Fatburger Las Vegas Strip Menu
When the Las Vegas Strip Fatburger used to be that rare Fatburger to offer breakfast, (they used to open a 5 AM), that is no longer the case. This location opens at 10 AM with the normal Fatburger menu we’ve grown to love.
This includes your four basic burgers:
- The Original Fatburger (1/3rd pound)
- Large Fatburger (1/2 pound)
- XXL Fatburger (1 pound)
- XXXL Fatburger (1.5 pound)
They also offer a chicken sandwich (grilled, crispy or Cajun), along with a turkey burger, veggie burger, and Impossible burger.
You’ll also find hot dogs, chili dogs, three different styles of fries, (including sweet potato), onion rings and more.
Fatburger on the Las Vegas Strip carries Coke products, and also has hand-scoped ice cream milkshakes. There’s even vegan shakes.
FatBar Las Vegas Strip
The FatBar is the fun, shaded, people-watching spot directly off the Strip sidewalk in front of Fatburger. The 3,000 square foot space that can seat 220 customers. It has heat lamps during cooler months and misters for those brutal, sunny Sin City days.
Attached to it is a another little area that is home to Fatbuger’s Las Vegas Slushie Bar. Options include the yard-long 50 ounce frozen drinks, similar to what you find at the various Big Chill Bars around Las Vegas. Flavors including Strawberry Daiquiri, Pina Colada, and Margarita.
Signature cocktails at the Fatbar itself include the “Vegas Vacation,” which is a cool mixture of: “Don Q Coco Rum, Patron Citronge Orange Liqueur, Funkin Blackberry Puree, and fresh Lemonade.”
Their “Vegas Lights” cocktail is made from the following: “City Lights Shine Salted Caramel White Whiskey,
Licor 43, and Cafe Agave Vanilla Cinnamon Spiked Cold Brew.”
