Hotel Rio serves the very best seafood buffet I have ever experienced. Also serves prime rib, chicken, etc. Pricey but go hungry!
Wow Greymo, sounds like fun! At the other extreme, during the day the Gold Coast casino has a good Vienna Beef hot dog, with a nice selection of toppings, 99c. It’s at a cart near the sports book.
If you are into spending some real money for dining in Vegas, here are a couple of suggestions for you.[V]
For both scenery and food Mt. Charleston Lodge, food is not great but the scenery from the top of the mountain is good especially in March when there is still a little snow around.
Take a drive along the scienic loop at Red Rock Canyon and then drive a little further down twards Blue Diamond to Old Nevada, its a western town recreation thats a lot of fun. Next door is a bar and restaurant. People put dollar bills on the walls and rafters with their names and dates.
Along with the .99 shrimp cocktails already mentioned don’t forget to try the 1/2 lb. hot dog at Slots of Fun and the .89 foot long at the Riviera by the nickle and penny slots on the nw corner by Circus Circus.
Along with Golden Gate shrimp cocktails & Emeril’s Fish house, you should try a few of the West Coast chains including In N Out burger for burgers, fresh cut fries & real ice cream shakes.
Pink’s Chili Dogs inside the Alladin / Planet Hollywood Hotel
We also like Commanders Place front right side of Planet Hollywood Hotel. Like the one in New Orleans however this one offers the famous NOLA food & 99 cent Martinis.
The steakhouse at Circus Circus don’t look around the casino, just go straight to the Steakhouse. Meal comes with all the fixing and can run around $75.00 including tip for 2 people. Very nice prime aged steak.
Ellis Island for the steak dinner under $10.00. Not the most elegant casino but has a decent & cheap steak dinner
Other things to do avoid the porn slappers, avoid the time share hawkers. Do check out the 1/2 price ticket booths by the coke bottle near MGM. They have 1/2 price tickets for the less popular shows unless you want to see Celine for $95.00…
It’s cool there in March. You don’t need your long coats if your casino hopping. It’s warm inside and your only outside for a little while. We cab it or tram it that way we can drink without have to drive or remember where you left that darn rental car. Oh and wear comfortable walking shoes.
I’ve combed Vegas after doing LOADS of research & only recomend 2 places:
1) Bellagio breakfast buffet
2)Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House at The MGM Grand: Have the grilled petite rib eye, med. well & Bananna cream pie.
TRUST ME I"VE DONE IT ALL IN VEGAS. These r the only 2 places worth your time.
Not for everyone but, if you want to get a feel for old L, go down town to the Golden Gate for a 99c shrinp coctail. Then head over to Binion’s Coffee Shop and have a bowl of Texas Chili. I just got word it is still good.
I had a real fun time riding the overhead tram thing, going to all the casinos along the way, and reading all of the restaurant menus.
Oh, get a New York pizza at New York New york. Then walk across the sidewalk to the pioano bar for a fun time.
Do a searh here for Las Vegas and there is allot of great info about all kinds of LV stuff. Wish I was goin!!! And give us a report!
And, have a great time, be carefull, and try not to loose too much $$$.
And oh, I wish I had gone to tha Brazillian steak place at the Mirage. Kinda pricy but…
Best ladies’ room in LV – LV Hilton, the casino one closest to the Star Trek exhibit.
My wife and I are going to Las Vegas in March.
Any recomendations or suggestions with regard to food, sights or whatever would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
A new fabulous restaurant, with mouthwatering cuisine, state of the art decor, great service is Triple George Grill 201 North 3rd Street Las Vegas. This is right near the Freemont –it is just North by one street. Across or near where the Lady Luck Casino use to be.
We were in Vegas last year in November for a special occasion and ate at Morton’s of Chicago and here. I must say that this place was better than Morton’s (which I believe is tough to beat)and alot cheapter.
There maybe a dress code not sure.
If I was in LV for one day and could pick anywhere to eat I would spend the $ 30 cab ride from the airport to eat there. Yummmm

I started to post some suggestions for sightseeing, but saw the thread was long since past it’s needed date. He wanted this info almost 6 months ago. We got no feedback after the trip.
Just got back from Vegas – to me, Emeril’s Fish House was mediocre and the staff annoying.
I enjoyed my dinner at Mario Batali’s a lot – one of the best meals I’ve ever had including French Laundry.
Before you jump all over me, I also enjoyed mightily the two buck beer and a hot dog meal I had during my alcohol fueled Fremont Street Experience. I’d go back in a heartbeat for either of those meals. I actually won money also. Not a bad trip at all….
I ate at Rao’s at Caesar’s Palace in Vegas this week and I can honestly say it was one of the ten best meals I have ever eaten. We started with the Insalata Caprese, a terrific arugula salad lightly dressed with vinegar and oil and shaved parmesan and an order of delicately breaded calamari and zuchinni. These are dishes that don’t so much explode with flavor as bathe your tongue in subtle flavors. Our server gave us great suggestions as to how much food we should order and we finished our first course the way you are supposed to feel: a little bit sated but ready for the secondi and primo.
We ordered a pasta dish of Pennete Alla Vodka (a creamy sauce of San Marzano Tomatoes, proscuitto and vodka and cream) which was heavenly. We also shared Uncle Vincent’s Famous Lemon Chicken, amazing pan-seared pork chops with sweet and hot peppers, and the amazing Bisteeca alla Pizziaola, the best steak I’ve ever had. They take a 17 ounce Prime Shell Steak and saute it in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Fresh Oregano and then top it with some fresh tomatoes. The outside carmelizes into a subtle char and the inside is as tender as any steak I’ve had. Simply delicious.
The food at Rao’s is simple but expertly prepared. The bill for four fame to nearly $300 — not bad for Vegas — and worth every penny. I know that it isn’t the same as the original, but I would return to Vegas simply to eat at Rao’s again.
