Does anyone ever get tired of paying insane amounts of money on the strip? I for one do! If you know of any bargains can you please reply, hopefully it will be somwhere off the strip. I love the strip, but do not like taking my 16 year old daughter (too many drunk perverts willing to check out a minor)and 14 year old son along with my 3 and 5 year old boys to that cest pool of human waste called the strip. lol I know of a few places where you can eat well and pay less, but am hoping to expand my options. All input would be greatly appreciated.

Define "insane amounts of money" please.

I'm from Australia. By my nation's standards, Picasso at the Bellagio is amazing value for money. Where else on this planet can you get a four-course, 2-Michelin-Star meal for less than $120?

That said, Julian Serrano at Aria is very good value for money. And tasty. Tapas = great overall value.

Thanks for the reply StudiodeKadent, I agree that $120 is a good deal for a 4 course meal. I just wanted something cheaper for the kids, A 4 course meal would be wasted on them.

I may try this for my wife and I, I just did a little research and think that we can use a date night in vegas and this would be great.

Highlights for great cheap eats on the strip include the $20.13 lunch special at Estiatorio Milos inside The Cosmopolitan. I'm a big fan of going to Peppermill to split their nachos or their dinner-menu fruit plate, both of which are comically large.

Just off-Strip (Las Vegas Blvd. and Oakey, a couple blocks north of Strat) is Viva Las Arepas, a Venezuelan restaurant that is CRAZY good, and very wallet friendly. The namesake arepas are griddled corn cakes, stuffed with various tasty things. Two or three of those and I'm a very happy camper. And, Luv-It Frozen Custard is just across the street for dessert.

Thank you for your input I will have to give these establishments a try, especially Viva Las Arepas, which sounds very delish.

I know this has been beaten to death but I cant recommend any restaurants where you have to walk through a casino with kids. So with that being said i would stick to Vdara, Four Seasons, Manadarin Oriental

 n580564x replied on Tuesday, 14th May 2013

Thank you for your reply brandon,

I agree that kids should not be in the casino and avoid them at all cost, sometimes it is not possible in Vegas everything revolves around Gambling.

Maybe not"Great", but a good meal can be had at the M resort buffet. It should satisfy any picky kids and ,if you have someone else to drive, includes all the alcohol you can drink! The Chinese place at The Orleans was rated one of the best in the country by some travel show? Don't forget In-N-Out burger! A good steakhouse choice would be "The Steakhouse" at Circus Circus.

i have actually taken the family to the M, for Breakfast and Lunch I have found it an immence bargain. The only problem is how far out from Vegas it is, but since i am staying in the Silverton this time around I may be close enough to go this time around. As for In n Out i had that im my meal plan already. :)

You could forage on room service trays in nicer hotels, and before you think it to snarky, it did make Vegas click's top 10 list.

 Spyder replied on Tuesday, 14th May 2013

so that's a bad thing to do? Sometimes after my 257th Jack and Coke I'm just so hungy.....

 n580564x replied on Tuesday, 14th May 2013


Thanks for the reply. I am looking to save a few bucks so I can include more shows and activities for my kids, I am not homeless. lol

 DrVegas replied on Tuesday, 14th May 2013

It's always worth it to look closely at those trays when you pass them by. Last summer in the hallway at Paris, we saw a tray with four (unopened) cans of Budweiser. Score! I don't really much like Bud, but free beer is free beer....

 jinx73 replied on Thursday, 16th May 2013

Beer is acceptable, unopened of course, and Spyder, I'm not saying the stuff doesn't look good after all those drinks, I'm just saying, Just say no.

Hash Hash Go Go (Quad or downtown), Mob Bar/Triple George (downtown), Whole Foods, Bellagio lunch buffet.

 n580564x replied on Wednesday, 29th May 2013

Thank you for your reply. I have heard great things about Hash House a go go. What do prices range from? I would like to skimp on the food and take the kids to as many shows as i can afford.

 tminton responded on Thursday, 30th May 2013

Take them to the food court at the mall. I guarantee they could care less about the nice places. Eat cheap and enjoy the shows.

 n580564x replied on Monday, 3rd June 2013

That is actually not a bad idea, my kids eat nothing but hamburgers, hot Dogs and pizza anyway, their idea of fine dinning is In n Out. lol
