Three, Count ‘Em Three, Burger Joints Close in Las Vegas

You sometimes hear how Las Vegas has too many burger restaurants. Well, strike three from that list.

I Love Burgers has closed its two locations in Las Vegas, one at Venetian (pictured below) and another at the Town Square shopping mall.

Is the closing of I Love Burgers a repudiation of restaurants with symbols in their names? We hope not, as that would involve us looking up the definition of “repudiation.”

No reason was given for the restaurants closing, but the I Love Burgers Web site conveys this simple message, “We would like to thank our loyal guests and employees who have made the last six years a wonderful experience, but both I Love Burgers locations in Las Vegas have closed.”

We’re mainly sharing this photo of I Love Burgers at Town Square to prove we have taken a photo of absolutely everything in Las Vegas.

Another burger restaurant, Cheeseburger at the Oasis at Miracle Mile Shops, has also closed. It’s the one near the V Theater. Near the fountain thingy.

Oh, just look at the photo, already.

We’re not kidding. We have taken a photo of everything. We probably have a photo of you. Unless that’s creepy, then nevermind.

Our friends at VegasBright.com report the restaurant closed because “the rent went up again.”

For a successful restaurant, a bump in rent isn’t a big deal, but for a struggling establishment, that could seal its fate.

There are still lots of stellar burgers in Las Vegas, of course, so you’ll manage.

You’ll even be able to get In-N-Out at Linq promenade soon. You’re welcome.

    Burgers are so easy to make at home I don’t get why they are so popular to order out. I like to order stuff that I can’t get or don’t want to fuss with at home. Tacos are a good example. Too much prep to fuss with at home when there are so many great taco joints in town.

    BTW I’m with Consumer Reports on how to make the best burger. Use a blistering hot cast iron pan. A hot plate outside is best because it will smoke like crazy. Just 3 minutes per side max. They did a blind taste test between gas and charcoal grills and the simple cast iron pan. The pan won.

      The name of the burger place that closed down: “Cheese Burger”

      How creative. I can make better cheeseburgers at home with all kind of exotic meats. Fresher, tastier, etc. Normally not looking for a cheese burger in Vegas.

    The main problem I love burgers and other casual restaurants located at strip casinos is the rent is high which means high prices. People don’t want to pay a lot for fast food. The high end restaurants can mark up prices and don’t have to rely on volume as much.You got to sell a lot of burgers just to pay the rent.

    Yeah, the burger joint/fancy cocktail bar ratio was getting dangerously lopsided.

    I predict fancy cocktail bars will open in each of these three locations to finally, at long last bring balance to Las Vegas.

    The corporate entity who owned I<3Burgers still owns a few chains with locations on the strip including Coffee Bean/Tea Leaf, Jamba Juice, and LobsterMe. Maybe your burger dream isn't lost forever. #jambaburger, #lobsterburger, #coffeeburger, #ick
