Las Vegas is known for its many high-end celebrity chef restaurants, but plenty of affordable dining options can be found--and that doesn't mean you have to stick to food courts and buffets. Getting the most food value for your dollars is about more than a bargain price--it's about getting good value. At a restaurant like Mon Ami Gabi, for instance, diners won't find cheap food, but they will find a menu full of French bistro dishes at more reasonable prices than at most of Las Vegas' French restaurants. As a bonus, the location and people watching can't be beat at any price.
Finding great deals on food in Las Vegas is easy if you know what to look for. Happy hours can turn up a host of small plates and appetizers, along with great deals on drinks. Lunch specials are another smart way to have a delicious meal at a reasonable cost. Even restaurants that don't offer specials for the mid-day meal usually have a lunch menu featuring a selection of affordable dishes.
Some off-the-Strip deals are well worth the short drive, like the all-you-can-eat fish & chips at Crown & Anchor on Mondays. Luckily, many of the areas closest to the Strip are full of hidden gems serving up cravings-worthy dishes at much better prices than commonly found on the Strip.
