The milkshake is an American dessert icon, so it’s only logical that Vegas would feature some of the most creative and playful milkshakes in the country.

Here are the restaurants with the best milkshakes in Las Vegas:

Holsteins Shakes and Burgers

A top choice among tourists and locals alike, milkshake lovers must check out Holsteins Shakes and Burgers in the Cosmopolitan. Holsteins specialize in savory burgers and their gourmet alcoholic shakes.

Holsteins feature a wide variety of shake flavors, including non-alcoholic options. Some of the most popular shakes include:

  • Campfire S’mores
  • Frozen Grasshopper
  • Oreo
  • Fat Boy
  • Drunken Monkey

Black Tap Crazy Shakes

Black Tap at the Venetian has some of the craziest shakes on the Strip, with some of the most popular flavors being the Bam Bam, The Cookie, and Strawberry Shortcake.

Black Tap originated in New York but has since gone international, with the Vegas location unique for its stand-alone Crazy Shake bar. The shakes are great for sharing and pair wonderfully with one of Black Tap’s salads or craft burgers.


If you’re shopping in the Fashion Show Mall and need a bite to eat, stop by Stripburger. The restaurant sources 100 percent all-natural beef for its juicy and flavorful burgers, and their milkshakes are some of the best in Vegas.

Stripburger shakes can be enjoyed with or without alcohol and come in a variety of classic flavors, such as Cookies and Cream, Strawberry, Chocolate Fudge, and Vanilla Bean.
