I never go on the strip anymore and my favorites are away from the strip. My non fast food favorite type burger joint is at LBS, located in Red Rock Casino. But here is an article on the 10 best in Vegas according to the author. Hope this helps:

BLT Burger
The brainchild of acclaimed chef Laurent Tourondel, BLT Burger’s menu options include lamb tandoori, veggie falafels, and turkey burgers. After the savory sides and 100 percent-certified Angus beef burgers, indulge in signature desserts such as Krispy Kreme doughnut bread pudding with rum raisin ice cream. The Mirage Hotel & Casino, 702-792-7888

Bottles & Burgers
Kick back at this 1950s-inspired burger joint with an old-fashioned ice cream bar and soda fountain, the newest venture from the Double Helix Wine & Restaurant Group. Sink your teeth into a classic burger, paired with a handmade shake or malt. Tivoli Village, 702-431-5453

Burger Bar
For posh diners eager to satisfy their inner carnivore, Hubert Keller’s “ultimate burger experience” offers the Rossini—a succulent fusion of Kobe beef, sautéed foie gras, and shaved truffles. For dessert? A cheesecake burger on a glazed doughnut bun, of course. The Shoppes at Mandalay Place, 702-632-9364; mandalaybay.com/dining

Five Guys

With more than 250,000 possible ways to order a burger, it’s no wonder this casual joint has fans lining up out the doors. The East Coast favorite’s endless list of free toppings includes classic A.1. Steak Sauce and jalapeño peppers. Three locations; fiveguys.com

Holsteins Shakes and Buns
The food at Holsteins brings a homegrown flavor to Las Vegas with its organic, eclectic menu, packed with natural, homemade snacks and “bam-boozled” alcoholic shakes (try the Drunken Monkey). Make the Gold Standard your first pick for its delicious fusion of dry-aged beef sirloin, smoked bacon, and aged goat cheddar cheese. The Cosmopolitan, 702-698- 7940

I Love Burgers
Foodies with a soft spot for anything involving burger buns, cheese, and everything inbetween can’t go wrong at I Love Burgers. Enjoy the alcoholic milkshakes or the popular I Love Bacon, a blend of ground sirloin and applewood-smoked bacon topped with smoked Gouda. The Shoppes at The Palazzo, 702-242-2747; Town Square, 702-675-7800

In-N-Out Burger

This family-owned West Coast burger joint long ago reached cult status. Simple and fresh, it boasts only a handful of menu items, such as hand-cut French fries and real ice cream milkshakes. Go for the off-the-menu favorite Animal Style, a worth-it mess of secret sauce, cheese, and grilled onions. 10 locations; in-n-out.com

KGB: Kerry’s Gourmet Burgers
Celebrity chef Kerry Simon is known for his rock ’n’ roll flair, and KGB is no exception. Choose from masterpieces both kitschy (Thanksgiving Turkey Burger) and creative (the Burger Cobb salad). And don’t miss the sweet potato tots and waffle-fry nachos. Harrah’s Las Vegas, 702-369- 5065

LBS
With a roadhouse-chic rustic interior, this cozy spot has the look of a Texas saloon and a wide selection of American fare. We recommend The Perfect Burger, with its delectable fusion of Gruyere cheese, herb mayo, smoked bacon, and exclusive LBS burger sauce. Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa, 702-835-9393

Le Burger Brasserie
Le Burger Brasserie is a French interpretation of an American classic. Its signature dish, a sirloin masterpiece at $777, is a mouthwatering burger made from Kobe beef and Maine lobster topped with caramelized onions, imported Brie, crispy prosciutto, and aged balsamic vinegar served with a bottle of Dom Pérignon Rosé Champagne. Paris Las Vegas, 702-946-4346

With all the advances in today's technology, you'd think there would be better quality video by now. I watched this thing a couple of times and still cannot see a punch being thrown.

Yep, if I wanted to play anything for money all I have to do is go 8-10 minutes in either direction and hit a casino/sportsbook. ;-)

With you and I finishing 1-2 in Knox's KAWC League and with BuckeyeFever , and the Cleveland Spiders in the league, it'll be good. The scoring will be higher than the KAWC league though.
