Way off of the strip, but a Las Vegas steakhouse which has catered to locals and non tourists in spirit, is Bob Taylor’s Ranch House:
It broils the steaks over an open wood pit, rather than the 1500 degree gas broilers the big name steakhouses use. It should be experienced if your’re interested in something beyond the glitze and high prices of the big name strip/chain restaurants.
For Breakfast (Both west of the strip):
The Egg & I
Jamm’s – Lady who owns it is originally from NJ. Incredible omelettes. And they have a bread thing (forget what they call it) similiar to a popover.
The $0.99 shrimp cocktail at the Golden Gate Casino is a great bargain and a great roadfood experience on Fremont Street downtown.
While we typically do NOT like buffets……….the breakfast at Paris is grand. Crepes made to order, waffles, pancakes, every kind of egg imaginable, of course all the meats, bagels, lox, it’s unending. I am NOT a breakfast person but would highly recommend Paris for breakfast.
For a really fine dining experience I would recommend "Bouchon" in the Bellagio.
Thanks llee i knew "fois" was incorrect – and I generally prefer typical roadfood to what passes as haute cusine – if you know what you’re doing you can do better generally at home- but I thought Bradley Ogdens stood out and derserved mention if you want to spend the time and money. I’ll try Hash House A-go-go on my next trip out.
I also enjoy your contributions to this board.
Hash House A-Go-Go. They call it "Twisted Farm Food". Very good. We (RedPatti, Jeff, Zman and I) had lunch there, it was superb. Of course it wasn’t Caesar’s Palace with foie gras.
Bradley Ogdens in Ceaser’s Palace is great- esp fois gras – tho not exactly roadfood
You can have an authentic Hawaiian plate lunch at L&L Drive Inn. There are several locations around town. There’s a good Chicago hot dog place on N. Rancho Dr. not far from downtown. If you’ve never been to In ‘n Out there’s one on West Sahara and at Tropicana and Industrial.
Ok so maybe Las Vegas is not roadfood heaven, but I am spending a few days in august at a conference at the red rock resort and will probably add a few more on the strip. I am looking forward to having a fatburger and a fish taco at rubio’s but are there any real roadfood experiences here?
