Las Vegas may be well-known for its many high-end celebrity chef restaurants, but plenty of affordable dining options can be found. Going off the Strip is the best way to lower your food bill, but there are a few places on the Strip with wallet-friendly prices.
You don’t have to stick to food courts and buffets to search for deals. At the Village Pub and Cafe inside Ellis Island, for instance, diners can enjoy some of the best prime rib deals in town, plus sample beer from the Ellis Island Brewery. The prices here will leave you with some extra money to spend at the tables later.
Look for happy hours at any restaurant, and you’re likely to find a host of small plates and specials, along with great deals on drinks. Lunch specials are another smart way to have a delicious meal at a reasonable cost. Le Thai in Downtown Las Vegas has a lunch menu full of specials for $9.95 that will keep you full for the rest of the day.
Venturing off the Strip is one of the most reliable ways to stretch your food budget, plus you’ll also find grocery stores, where you can get inexpensive snacks. On the Strip, you can find chain stores so you can grab chips or water to avoid buying those items at your hotel.
