Cheat Day? We've got you covered. If you're looking for some Las Vegas diet busters, the below list is a great place to start. From sweet to savory, there is something for everyone. Continue at your own risk! The below are not beach bod friendly ;)
Big Poppa Tart at the Donut Bar
124 S 6th St #140, Las Vegas, NV 89101
The Big Poppa Tart from Donut Bar is over a pound, and the center is an entire blueberry Pop-Tart®. But wait, there’s more. They add blueberry jelly and crumble more Pop-Tart® on top. There’s nothing subtle about Las Vegas, and Donut Bar wanted to make sure the same was true of the Big Poppa Tart. This is the doughnut that put them on the map and is probably big enough to be seen in Google’s satellite view. If you need a challenge, love Pop-Tarts® or believe everything is bigger in Texas, check out the Big Poppa Tart.
Carson Kitchen’s Bacon Jam
124 S 6th St #100, Las Vegas, NV 89101
Don’t let size fool you. The Bacon Jam from Carson’s Kitchen has everything you want to indulge in – sweet, savory and gooey with a side of carbs. Chef Cory Harwell told Food and Wine that the idea for it came one New Year’s Eve as he was hosting a dinner party for friends; he mixed bacon with sherry vinegar, brown sugar, onions, garlic and chili pepper. Although we don’t have the exact recipe for the popular dish, we can’t imagine the ingredients have changed much, but the restaurant version is topped with baked brie and served with toasted baguette slices.
Chocolate Chip Cookie At Crumbl Cookies
5590 Painted Mirage Rd #110, Las Vegas, NV 89149
This new cookie place has taken Las Vegas by storm. Cookies are fresh, moist and served warm. Their menu rotates every week but favorites including chocolate chip and chilled sugar are always available.
EAT’s Killer Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup
Downtown: 707 E Carson Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89101
Summerlin: 1910 Village Center Cir suite 1, Las Vegas, NV 89134
EAT’s grilled cheese lives up to its name and its served at both locations so you can indulge no matter what side of town you are on. Made with aged cheddar on thick sour dough bread and served with tomato soup, this classic favorite will not disappoint.
Frozen treat at Frozen Frog
7540 Oso Blanca Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89149
Shave ice and dole whip at one convenient location at 7540 Oso Blanca Road in Centennial Hills. This is as close to Hawaii as you are going to get in Las Vegas and there are dozens and dozens of flavor combos to try. The perfect thing on a hot summer day.
Cheesesteak at Pop's Philly Steaks
501 S Decatur Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89107
If you are going to cheat go big or why bother? Melty cheese (provolone or whiz) covering lean steak on a hoagie roll. Pair it with some fried mushrooms. Enjoy your treats al 'fresco on Pop's patio on at Decatur Boulevard and Alta Drive.
Quadruple Bypass Burger at Heart Attack Grill
450 Fremont St #130, Las Vegas, NV 89101
Have you ever wondered how you could eat 9,982 calories in one meal? Have you ever been in a hospital wearing one of those gowns that opens in the back for all the world to see and thought to yourself, "This ambience would make for a great dining experience?" Sure, we all have. You probably thought these two curiosities would never be answered by one establishment, but you'd be wrong - heart-attack dead wrong. Meet the Heart Attack Grill's Quadruple Bypass Burger. Sure, there's also a 19,900 calorie Octuple Bypass Burger, but let's be reasonable. Wine is served in an I.V. drip bag. Milkshakes are made with butterfat. The servers are dressed like nurses - not in a realistic way with scrubs and a look of exhaustion, but more like the Halloween version that probably won't keep you very warm. To top it all off, your stay in the "hospital" ends with either a triumphant, free, wheelchair ride to the exit or, if you didn't finish your food, a public paddling.
Short Rib Fried Rice at Le Thai
523 Fremont St, Las Vegas, NV 89101
It’s the restaurant’s signature dish for a reason. Made with pulled beef from short rib, this fried rice is something you will not want to share. It’s stir-fried with waterfall sauce, egg, garlic, yellow and green onions and topped with cilantro. We’re not sure what the calorie count is, but it seems to have something from all the major food groups, which is good enough for us.
Slushy drink at Courtesy D Bar on Fremont Street Experience
301 Fremont St, Las Vegas, NV 89101
Fremont Street is known for its gaming and endless entertainment, but it is also the home for “slushy” adult drinks. Visit one of the outdoors bars at the Fremont Experience and enjoy a slushy by the yard (responsibly of course). That’s 3 feet!
The Park’s Garbage Fries
506 Fremont St, Las Vegas, NV 89101
Cheat day really isn’t complete without some fries and The Park’s don’t disappoint! Fries come with cheddar and provolone cheese, bacon, jalapenos, green onions, tomatoes, avocado, chipotle ranch, a fried egg and you can add steak or chicken.
