There is one In-N-Out Burger on the Las Vegas Strip. It’s located in the Linq Promenade in the very heart of Las Vegas Boulevard, inbetween the Flamingo and Linq hotels and casinos.
The iconic California-based hamburger stand opened on January 11, 2017, and has been bustling with crowds ever since.
There is one In-N-Out Burger on the Las Vegas Strip
It’s located more towards the back end the Linq Promenade, in a corner location in-between Sprinkles Cupcakes and Flour & Barley’s Pizza. It’s a pedestrian restaurant only, meaning there is no drive-through here.
As you’re walking from the Strip towards the High Roller Ferris Wheel, the In-N-Out Burger will be just to the right of the fountains.
This In-N-Out Strip location has just over 5,000 square feet inside, where you’ll find the familiar black and white checked floor, retro red booths, and (this being Las Vegas) a touch of neon green lighting above.
There’s also additional patio seating on the promenade, offering a nice view of the fountains, as well as people-watching.
Next door is what’s called the “Company Store,” where you can purchase a variety of In-N-Out branded souvenirs and merchandise, such as t-shirts, cups, and even milkshake-flavored lip balm.
In-N-Out Las Vegas Strip Hours
Sunday – Thursday: 10:30 AM to 1 AM
Friday & Saturday: 10:30 AM to 1:30 AM
The exact address is:
3545 S. Las Vegas Boulevard, Suite L24
Las Vegas, NV. 89109
Official Website: In-N-Out.com
While the presence of the retail store is rare for an In-N-Out (there are only two other “Company Stores” in the United States), the menu will consist of the same, simple but delicious offerings that have helped make In-N-Out a cult favorite. And while I found prices here just slightly higher here than other In-N-Outs I’ve visited, the costs were very reasonable compared to other meals you’ll find on the Strip.

Other In-N-Out Burgers Close to the Las Vegas Strip
There are a couple of other off-Strip In-N-Out Burgers fairly close to the Strip. Although they may technically be within walking distance, the paths aren’t really short nor tourist-friendly.
For years, the only In-N-Out Burger to the Las Vegas Strip was the restaurant at 4888 Dean Martin Drive, which is on the west side of I-15. Unlike the In-N-Out at the Linq, this location has a drive-through.
It’s approximately 7/10th of mile from the strip (as the crow flies) on Tropicana Boulevard, but further in distance if you’re walking. Looking at the map below, it appears that this In-N-Out location isn’t that much of walk, however the roughly .7 mile distance on Tropicana can be deceptively long for those of you walking because you can’t make a straight line to it. Here’s a map with the red star representing the location.
There is not a sidewalk near the NY-NY and T-Mobile Arena sections of Tropicana, meaning you have to use the sidewalk on the south side of Tropicana Avenue. It curves around a bit, making it a longer walk than if you could just cut across on the north side of Tropicana.
The nearest strip hotels to the restaurant are the New York New York and the Excalibur.
It would take a normal, healthy person between about 15 to 20 minutes to walk the estimated .9 mile walking distance.
For those of you inputting it into a GPS, the full address is:
4888 Dean Martin Drive
Las Vegas, Nevada 89103
The hours for this location are as follows:
Sunday – Thursday: 10:30 a.m. to 1 a.m.
Friday and Saturday: 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 a.m.
Closest In-N-Out Burger to the North end of the Strip
There is a closer In and Out Burger for those of you staying on the North end of the strip, (i.e. Circus Circus, The Stratosphere, SLS and the Hilton Grand Vacation Suites). The one at 2900 W. Sahara Avenue is probably not walking distance from the strip (unless you’re a diehard), but it’s a closer cab or Uber ride than to the In-N-Out near the New York New York.
The 2900 W. Sahara Avenue restaurant is a 1.6 mile drive from the Stratosphere Hotel and Casino, and a 1.8 mile drive from the Circus Circus Hotel and Casino. It’s also the closest In and Out Burger to old downtown Las Vegas (Fremont Street), at just over 4 miles away.

When staying at the Plaza Hotel and Casino downtown once, my friend insisted that we drive to the In-N-Out for lunch. I wasn’t sure why we had to drive miles to get fast food, when there were plenty of places to eat on Fremont Street, but I was glad he drove there. It’s one of those places you certainly have to try once, and despite the hype and build-up from my buddy, I was not disappointed with my “Animal Style” cheeseburger and fries.
The only other In and Out close to the Las Vegas strip is the one at 4705 S. Maryland Parkway. This restaurant is well to the east of the strip, and borders the campus of the University of Las Vegas Nevada. It’s a two mile drive from the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, but less than a mile away if you wanted to walk, and take a pleasant short cut by walking through the UNLV campus.
This is the next closest In-N-Out Burger to the Las Vegas Strip
This location is about 2 and 1/2 miles from the MGM Grand, and 3 miles from Planet Hollywood.
More about In-N-Out
For those of you unfamiliar with the popular fast food restaurant, In-N-Out Burger is a chain of hamburger, milkshake and french fry joints known for their simple menu and clean restaurants. Despite a plain concept and little advertising, they’ve developed a cult following.
There are now 314 restaurants in all. The restaurants are scattered mostly throughout the West and Southwest. Unlike most fast food restaurants, In and Out does not have franchises.
Las Vegas was home to the first In-N-Out Burger outside of Southern California. There are a total of 13 In and Out Burger locations in Las Vegas. The state of Nevada has 17 of them total, with the other four being in Sparks, Reno, Carson City (the state capitol), and Laughlin.
California has the most In and Out Burgers, at 212 restaurants. Other states lucky enough to have one, (besides California and Nevada) are Texas, Arizona, Oregon and Utah, with 10 restaurants. Those of you driving west to Las Vegas on I-15, who can’t wait until Las Vegas for your hamburger fix, can catch the In-N-Out Burger at St. George Utah. You’ll see the sign from the interstate just as you get into town, (it’s on the left).
The first one opened in Baldwin Park, California in 1948, but is no longer standing.
