It’s no surprise that you will find the world’s most expensive burgers in Las Vegas and New York City since their flavors are as spectacular as the cities themselves.

The 777 Burger is as Vegas as its Lucky Sevens namesake. The burger has all the flash and decadence of Sin City, and you will have to visit Paris Las Vegas to order it. Of course, serving this burger with a bottle of Dom inflates the price considerably. However, it is well worth it in our opinion.
