When you think fast food you probably think salty fries, greasy burgers and food that may be convenient but doesn’t pack much of a taste or nutritional punch.

But that’s not how we do fast food in Vegas. We have quick-service restaurants with gourmet bites from Michelin-starred chefs and tasty places where you can enjoy a quick, healthy meal without the side of guilt.

Check out these fast food restaurants in Vegas where the food is, well, actually good food. No reservations required.

Want a quick bite for a good price from a Michelin-starred chef? Get Gordon Ramsay’s famous fish and chips at his quick service restaurant at The LINQ Promenade.

The hand-cut cod filets are flown in fresh daily, battered and cooked to order.

Walk up to the counter and choose from fish, shrimp, chicken or sausage. Then choose your chips. You can either get them natural with sea salt or “dirty” with toppings like truffle and Parmesan or jalapenos and crisp chorizo.

We love the drink offerings here like the peach and ginger lemonade or the orange and vanilla lemonade. And don’t even think about leaving without trying one of the sticky toffee pudding or Biscoff shakes for dessert.

Jaburritos at The LINQ Promenade

Sushi burritos at Jaburritos is a great place to grab a quick bite in Vegas

Think you have to go to a gourmet restaurant to get fresh sushi? Think again. Just pop into the quick, casual Jaburritos and you can indulge in their popular sushi burritos.

Jaburritos serves made-to-order sushi burritos stuffed with savory Japanese and Mexican inspired ingredients and flavors. Sushi burritos are made with seaweed soy paper or a tortilla. Fill it with a protein like tuna, shrimp, crab or salmon, add sauces like sweet chili, eel sauce and mango teriyaki and then add other ingredients including lettuce, cucumber, red onion and wonton strips.

For non-sushi lovers you can get grilled chicken and the burritos can also be made vegan or vegetarian with Gardein steak. If you don’t want a burrito you can also combine the ingredients in a bowl.

Side dishes include edamame, seaweed salad and taro chips and queso. Try a mochi ice cream pop for dessert.

Fulton Street Food Hall at Harrah’s Las Vegas

Don’t think of Fulton Street Food Hall as a food court – think of it as a chef-driven marketplace with food that’s made fresh throughout the day. There are several different stations serving food for every taste.

Start out with the salad bar and move along to the sushi bar or the taco bar or pizza station. There’s also a burger bar with Red River Farms Nebraska Angus burgers, all-natural turkey burgers and organic veggie burgers. If you’re in the mood for ramen, check out the noodle bar.

For dessert choose from an array of beautiful pastries as well as a frozen yogurt station.

La Creperie at Paris Las Vegas

One of the surprisingly good fast food restaurants in Vegas is La Creperie at Paris Las Vegas

If you’ve ever been to Paris you are familiar with the walk-up sidewalk creperies where you can grab one of the famous French treats. Paris Las Vegas aims to re-create the experience at La Creperie. You’ll find sweet and savory options that you can watch being made right in front of you.

Dessert crepes include the butter and sugar, Nutella, fresh berry, chocolate cherry and more.

For savory options, choose from shrimp scampi, ham and cheese, three cheese, tomato mozzarella, and the roasted chicken with sun dried tomatoes, asparagus, basil pesto and shaved grana Padano cheese.

Nook Café at The LINQ

For a quick healthy meal head to the Nook Cafe at The LINQ - Fast food restaurants in Vegas

For a quick meal with lots of healthy options, head down to Nook Café inside The LINQ.

Start your day with breakfast plates that include eggs, meat and hash browns, or grab a croissant breakfast sandwich, a breakfast burrito, fruit or a steel cut oatmeal bar.

For lunch there’s a selection of sandwiches, including a roasted beef and lamb gyro and banh mi sandwich. Pizza is available by the slice or whole pie, and if you want something lighter you can choose from several salads.

Maybe healthy food isn’t in the cards and you just need some plain old comfort food. You can find that at Nook too. How about a bacon cheeseburger, jalapeno poppers or some chips and salsa?

Brioche by Guy Savoy at Caesars Palace

Are you craving something sweet? Head over to Brioche by Guy Savoy for quick dessert

Maybe sitting down at acclaimed chef Guy Savoy’s gourmet restaurant at Caesars Palace isn’t in your budget, but the good news is that you can still enjoy cuisine from this famous French chef at his quick-service spot, Brioche by Guy Savoy.

This grab and go concept serves ham and cheese and vegetable French baguette sandwiches and pastries like croissants and Madeleines. The star of the show, however, is the brioche, a flaky French pastry that comes in sweet or savory options.

Sweet brioche can be stuffed with almond and candied fruit, Nutella and banana or peanut butter and jelly. Savory choices include prosciutto and cheese or bacon, cheese and jalapeno. Bon appétit!
