Prime people-watching spot at Fashion Show mall closes after 16 years

Updated March 31, 2023 - 11:13 am

Stripburger & Chicken, a purveyor of burgers, chicken sandwiches, craft cocktails and boozy milkshakes, is closing after 16 years in Fashion Show mall on the Strip, a representative for the restaurant said in an email. Stripburger’s open-air covered dining room offered some of the best people-watching on the boulevard.

The closure comes just after the Review-Journal reported that Emmitt’s, the restaurant from NFL legend Emmitt Smith taking shape at Fashion Show, was a step closer to opening in light of a pending business license.

The representative for Stripburger did not reply to a request for information on the reason for the closing or any replacement restaurant.
