The $0.99 shrimp cocktail at the Golden gate casino downtown is fun. There is a piano player and some older slot machines. A bit of history I enjoy.
Casa Don Juan, near the Stratosphere for Mexican.
Downstairs at Ney York New York I enjoyed a slice of pizza at the street pizzarea, and the show right across the sidewalk at the duiling piano bar. It was the last stop on my tram ride.
6star..Thanks for the info. I think this monorail will really help in my quest to hit a few places. I mapped out the places recomended here and saw they were not all within walking distance, so if I don’t have a car I was not going, but $9 bucks for an all day and I get to Slot o Fun, is worth the investment. Thanks. JakerDog
Good advice 6star! Last visit I spent a whole day riding the tram w/ an all day pass, and reading menus at as many restaurants as I could find. Great fun for me!
Don’t forget the trams and monorail when going up and down the Strip and your feet are tired:
Yep Jaker, when I want the real scoop on where to eat, or how to cook something, this is where I come.
Oh, Steve Winn’s mom’s recipe for bread pudding, served at the Golden Nugget. At least is still was in 2005.
A true Roadfood joint on the strip is the Peppermill Restaurant, next to the Riviera. It’s kind of a coffee shop on steroids. Huge portions in a retro atmosphere. I’m partial to the mountainous Cobb Salad.
Depending on where you are from, you might be interested to try Fatburger and/or In ‘N Out locations. Fatburger is on the strip, across from the Monte Carlo. There are a couple of In ‘N Out locations along I-15, not too far from the strip.
Bootlegger Bistro would be another recommendation. Far south end of the strip..not walkable for you.
Thanks everyone….I’m making a list of places to hit. I’ve poked around the net also but the Roadfood crew here gets right to the point and is on the money! Thanks!
Maybe not exactly roadfood but w/ some history;
The 99c shrimp coctail at Golden Gate.
A bowl of chili ( no beans ) at Binion’s coffee shop.
These two are always on my list of must eats in LV.
I was in Vegas last in November.
Pinks hot dogs at the time was just a cart set up in the Planet Hollywood (former Aladdin casino)
The hot dog was about $6.00. (much more than the L.A. version)
However, I was told that they were supposed to open up a real location, amidst that indoor shopping/dining area. It may be ready now.
I do love the taste of those Hoffy dogs.
Was it Nine Fine Irishmen?
No this not actually a "restaurant"-it is one of those side stands(like Jody Moronies-sausage)-I looked on NY NY website but it does not list it.
Was it Nine Fine Irishmen?
I don’t know the name of the place-it is inside NY NY. It is a Fish and Chips place-it is soooo good-they cook it right when you order it. Very good.
Yes, on Fairfax, just steps north of CBS Television City and the Los Angeles (Hollywood) Farmer’s Market. Great place. Always surprised the Sterns don’t include it in their Roadfood books.
If you go to this original one, head to the dining room on your left past the deli and bakery. IMO, this is the most atmospheric area. You may see stars here late at night.
