8. Lagasse's Stadium 3325 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109 (Strip)

It’s appropriate that this spot is called a “stadium,” because the space is so massive that it exceeds a typical sports bar: the 24,000 square ft., bi-level dome boasts over 100 flat screen TVs and a sleek, modern interior. And these aren’t your average bar bites either, considering it’s Emeril Lagasse behind the menu. Expect elevated takes on pub staples, from small fare like chili cheese fries with homemade beef and bean chili, as well as heavy-hitting standouts like the Creole Burger, a nod to the chef’s Louisiana roots with Andouille sausage, garlic mayo, three chili pepper gouda, and caramelized onions.
