City: Las Vegas
Address: 3185 Highland Dr.
Las Vegas is an official unofficial food city, where award-winning chefs from all over the world come to dish up their exotic, experimental, or gourmand wares for high-rolling tourists and carnivorous celebs alike. Trey Holland’s Rollin’ Smoke Barbecue sort of disregards the glam of Vegas cookeries with scandalously-rubbed meats prepared Southern-style and moderately-priced with “smokin’ deals” so that you can spend that money on poker—of the strip or hold ‘em variety.
Everything rolls out in hickory-smoked goodness like succulent pulled pork, ribs of all sizes and shapes, and hot links that are perfectly-sided with the spiced-up crunch of Rollin’ Smoke’s jalapeño coleslaw or bacon potato salad. The real kicker is Rollin’ Smoke’s Outlaw burger made with brisket, onion strings, red cabbage slaw, cheddar cheese, and chipotle aioli. It’s the self-described “best burger in Vegas.” We don’t mind being the judge of that.
