I recently returned from a weekend-long vacation in Las Vegas. Yesterday I discussed the lodging options of my trip with much needed advice on watching out for bed bugs at these hotels…gross! Today I am discussing food options. Food
When I first started going to Las Vegas I was about fourteen years old…a long, long, long time ago! I remember seeing advertisements on the strip for $2.99 steak and eggs. Those days on the strip are long gone. Most modern hotels now have expensive eateries with weird food or expensive buffet options. Most buffet prices range from $16 for lunch to $35 for dinner (A listing of buffet and prices can be found at http://govegas.about.com/od/dining/a/lvbuffet.htm). I cannot justify spending that much money on lunch for one person. Food can be found inexpensive in the city but you must search for it.
Palace Station (2411 W. Sahara Ave, 702-367-2411) offers a yummy buffet at the low cost of $5.99 for breakfast, $6.99 for lunch, $7.99 for dinner and a Sunday champagne brunch for $8.99. This affordable buffet is all possible with a “boarding pass” players card. Sign-up is easy and takes no time at all. With many different food options everyone in your party is satisfied.
If you have the ability to leave the strip and head to North Las Vegas many casinos, known as “the locals casino” still offer steak and eggs for $3.99, prime rib for $5.99. Two restaurants in particular Cadillac Jacks located in the Opera House Casino (2542 N. Las Vegas Blvd, 702-649-8801) and Maddy’s Paddy Cafe in the Poker Palace (2757 N. Las Vegas Blvd, 702-649-3799) offer great menu selections from breakfast, sandwiches, large size entrees not exceeding $7.99. These dishes are delicious and fun.
If you cannot leave the strip the website www.restaurant.com is perfect for buying gift certificates to restaurants located inside the hotels. For a $25 gift certificate you only pay $10.00 and can get up to $25.00 worth of food. After the first time purchasing from this website they send promotional codes for even greater discounts.
Food is in abundance in Vegas…just watch out for the excellent discounts! Check back tomorrow as I discuss great places to find discounts on entertainment in Sin City.
