Las Vegas Restaurant & Dining Guide
Are Restaurants here Cheap?
Here's the most expensive meal I've seen, from the Palm's room service menu: They'll bring up a Carls Jr. hamburger, a 24-year-old bottle of French wine, and charge you six thousand dollars. It's named the Six Thousand Dollar Combo Meal. Conversely, you could head down to Fremont Street and grab a hot dog and beer for two bucks.
Discovering Food in Las Vegas:
Fast Food - There are plenty of options, but don't expect to find a McDonalds in the luxurious, five-star Bellagio. Keep an eye out for food courts; most casinos have one, and the Strip itsself boasts plenty of nooks stuffed with cheap restaurants. Expect to pay a couple of dollars per person more on the Strip than you would off it.
Where's the Best Food in Las Vegas?
Of course, there is no "best." There is only "favorite." So here's a list of the most tasty, friendly, interesting, and popular places to eat, according to the all-local staff of LasVegas.net:Chicago Joes - Downtown. Sure, it looks like a house, but incongruent additions have concoced a local favorite. Joe himself is still around nearly every day.
Kaizen Sushi - North Las Vegas. The atmosphere and service at this Japanese fusion restaurant are exeptional. Expect to spend about fifty dollars.
Flemings - Summerlin. Ask about the steak specials not appearing on the menu, and be amazed.
Top of the World - It's eight hundred feet off the ground and it rotates. Who cares if the food is average?
The Samosa factory - West Sahara. Tiny, never crowded, and will convert anyone to an intense love for Indian food.
The Strip House - Planet Hollywood. The small portions are compensated for by the incredible taste.
Carrabas - Henderson and Summerlin: For spectacular steak on special occasions, that won't implode your wallet.
Pieros - off the Strip: A classic piece of Las Vegas. The movie "Casino" was filmed here.
Crown & Anchor - Near UNLV: Great British food. No, really!
Vic and Anthonys - Golden Nugget: Expensive food, but superbly made. Land your own lobster.
2nd street grill - Fremont Hotel: A small example of deliciously creative appetizer would be the Chinese pork, served in a lettuce bowl.
Kaya - Chinatown: Delicious, all you can eat, and open until three a.m. every night.
Off the Strip - Just real food. That's the name and the slogan, just about summing it up.
