    Strip Dining Help

    Hey everyone. So I'm going to Vegas for the first time in a few years in August. Does anyone have recommendations for dining on the strip that is good/reasonable cost for lunch and dinner, but not like high end.

    I know on radio for example, Druff/Brandon talked about a deli that they enjoyed but is now closed. I guess that would have been a good example.

    Let me know.

    Also, any must-try nicer dinner spot recs would be cool too.

    Thanks.

    The strip is so tough to get value. One of my favs is Sushi Samba at the Venetian. I would say it’s reasonable for the strip. The food is really good. Chicken Terriyaki is no joke. You can check out the menu. Nice atmosphere.

    You can control the cost by not going hard on the adult beverages or ordering a bunch of rolls.

    Mon Ami Gabi patio at Paris is our to go place. Good food at "reasonable prices" plus a great place to enjoy Bellagio fountains and music and of course people watching. It has to be patio. Inside has nothing more to offer. Their Sunday brunch with a make-it-yourself bloody mary bar is our favorite. Enjoy your trip!

    I have provided a variety of cuisines for your dining pleasure:

    Strip reasonable: Grand Lux Cafe, Mon Ami Gabi, Hash House a Go Go, Battista’s Hole In The Wall, Eggslut.

    Strip high-end worth it: Delmonico Steakhouse, Estiatorio Milos, Julian Serrano Tapas, Giada, Mesa Grill.

    Off Strip: The Oyster Bar at Palace Station, Marrakech, Da Lat, Polaris Cafe, Fogo de Chao (yes, I know it’s a chain, I don’t care).

    Hash house go go at the LINq, is one of my fav restaurants. Go for lunch or dinner, make reservations and get the steak over potatoes. It will blow your mind about 25$ To 30$ I can’t remember off hand

    Gordon Ramsey fish and chips outside the linq. Some of the best fried fish I’ve ever had. 16.99 or 17.99

    Peppermill by the wynn, expensive but the portions are unreal 17-25$. It’s a Greek restaurants but the inside is all neon and still classic 60/70 vegas

    Taco gordo across from resorts world, there’s a second less busy taco place next door. I can’t remember the name I prefer their tacos but both are good and cheap open 24/7. 2/3$, al pastor tacos are the way to go

    Dirt dog has excellent hotdogs in the Bally’s shops. 10-12$

    Finally, go to Ellis island. Their food is awesome and their so cheap. 5 min walk off the strip past the flamingo. Make reservations but you can expect 16.99 prime rib, also the breakfast is 12-15$ but I eat there 2/3 times when I travel for my solo poker trips. They also brew their own beer which is pretty good

    This is an awesome list. BTWÖI stayed at the Cosmo probably 300 nights+ (stayed 3 months once) and didnít eat at Eggslut until my last stay. Always thought I donít like Breakfast sandwiches enough to wait in the lineÖ.I was wrong. Itís really fucking good. Also a bonus that they used turkey sausage patties rather than pork.

    Eggslut and the Oyster Bar are the only places in town where I know I’m going to have to wait in line, but don’t care.

    Will agree Strip value isn't what it used to be. Granted I haven't been post-COVID so there might be deals. BLT Steak Steakhouse had a great all you can eat $95 Lobster, Steak, and Mimosa Sunday buffet but the restaurant was a COVID causality I think. Keep an eye out for strip coupons and drink comps; you can find them in cabs and the airport.

    The only "chef" themed places I'd recommend are the Gordon Ramsey pub places (LINQ has one, another in Caesar's) and Bobby Flay's MESA Grill. The PUB (formerly Todd English) in Aria was a decent place to find quick bite special but I don't think that's no longer the case.

    Mon Ami Gabi is great for patio brunch. Took friends from UK, a mix of guys and gals, and they had something for everybody and the price was good.

    For a high end steak, Delmonico Steakhouse is worth it for sure.

    Off Strip: if you like tacos, Nacho Daddy is a must. They have a Taco & Tequila Tuesday with gourmet taco specials and 2 for 1 tequila shots

    MESA Grill closed. Bobby Flay started an Italian restaurant called Amalfi instead.

    Yes the fish is great but the fries are so-so at best. The barbeque place right across from Gordon Ramsey's is surprisingly good. I've sometimes gotten one of everything and had enough for several days.

    Lol. I played in the Caesars poker room last week. It’s right next door and I didn’t even notice!

    The Mexican restaurant right there in the Linq strip is actually ok for breakfast when everywhere else is full.

    Just finishing my trip up. Had a good time and used many of your recs. Thanks again.

    Went to Zuma actually. They didn't forget our corn like Druff. That was probably our favorite meal.

    Mon Ami Gabi was our fav breakfast place.

    I just wanted to pass along a tip that we figured out for going to the Cosmo on weekend evenings.

    So on the weekends now during the busiest parts of the day, because of COVID, the Cosmo is only letting in guests and people with reservations. They just look to see if you show them a room key or reservation email on your phone. So we made a reservation at one of the restaurants that morning and then cancelled it once we received the confirmation email.
