    What's up VMB, I'm on a low/no carb diet. What's the best place to get a burger on a lettuce bun with sweet potato fries. All my cheating will go toward beer and vodka:beer:

    Anyone that has a burger will do it without the bun. Finding the sweet potato fries is the trick. I recommend Gilley's.

    In-n-Out Burger will serve a burger between lettuce, no bun. I don't get this sweet potato fry trend, do they have less carbs?

    Not to get away from Vegas too much, but sweet potatoes have a MUCH lower glycemic index, which is really what's important. You want complex carbs. Though they may have carbs (as they are a starch) they are a slow acting complex carb and don't raise your blood sugar quickly.

    Ok - enough nutritional crap! Now enjoy yourself in Vegas! :clap:

    Thanks for kicking the facts. I eat a sweet potato maybe twice a week, my main concern is the bread. I've been doing quite well with my diet and not trying to get away from it to much. But I appreciate the comments

    Gordon Ramsey Burger at PH is a solid choice for both a good burger and sweet potato fries. Enjoy your trip, supersimonIII

    "The Stripper" at BLT Burger @ Mirage with Skinny Fries or sweet potato fries would be what you're looking for! Its delish.

    Le Burger Brasserie between Paris and Bally's if you're looking for a CET location. Good sweet potato fries...and if you get the AGC or LVA coupon books they have a BOGO offer inside.

    I'm on low carb myself but when I go to vegas I throw that out of the window so I "break" the diet for a few days so what, enjoy yourself. And for the record sweet potatoes have plenty of carbs whether they are simple or complex who cares. In-N-Out serves their burgers "protein style" if you want cheap and fast. I personally recommend Bachi Burger. It is not on the strip but is fantastic IMO. Last time I went I had the Kalbi Burger. My friend had the Banh-Mi burger and we shared the Ox Tail Chili Cheese fries among some other things.

    +1 Bachi is awesome.

    Of course, so is so much of the Vegas food scene off the Strip and away from downtown.
