Las Vegas Dining and Drinks as Cheap as it Gets


Las Vegas, my favorite destination doesn't have to cost a fortune. I would consider myself a sharp spender, good with my money... Ok I will admit it I am CHEAP! Over the years I have found some great deals in Las Vegas. Lets start out with my favorite, food.

The cheapest food is found in downtown Las Vegas. I usually start out with a $.99 shrimp cocktail at The Golden Gate Casino downtown. This has been a favorite for years and was recently featured on the travel channel. The casino takes a loss on this one, granted they get it all back at the tables!

Next up on our menu is Steak and Lobster for dinner, or lunch, or even breakfast depending on if you sleep or not. The best deal on this is $7.77 at the Plaza. I also get it at Careful Kity's in The El Cortez down the road. It tastes a little better there, and will run you a whopping $9.99 24 hours a day.

Another great dinner choice is not downtown but on the strip. San Remo's across from the MGM on Tropicana has a great prime rib dinner. $5.99 will get you prime rib, baked potato, bread and a dinner salad. The cut of prime rib isn't huge but its an excellent deal at 6 bucks!

Back downtown for breakfast. The Las Vegas Club's UpperDeck diner has a steak and egg breakfast, with hashbrowns and toast for $2.99. And it is really good.

Buffet Time...There are some great buffets in Vegas, but the great ones are expensive. The best in my opinion is the Spice Market buffet but that will run you 20-30 bucks. Were on a budget so try the buffet at The Gold Coast $6.99, great selectiona and great food.

Now for the drinks, you have to drink in Las Vegas! My method is this- never pay for a drink. If you are gambling they are free. So don't gamble to get a free drink, because its not free if you drop a hundred bucks at the tables. If you are going to gamble anyway then drink away. A great way to get some free drinks is to play the sportbook. You can sit sown with a program, and make a bet or two, or NONE! and get your drinks there. Just remember to take care of the cocktail waitress and she will take care of you.

Enjoy your next trip to Las Vegas....
