Let's do Lunch: Las Vegas' 10 Best Restaurants for an Unforgettable Meal

Las Vegas may feel like it’s designed for dinner, with the city’s selections of amazing restaurants setting the tone for a night out on the town. But what if you’re in the mood for a great lunch? Many Las Vegas restaurants are open for lunch, and diners can often take advantage of smaller crowds and lower prices, while also enjoying an exquisite meal.

Some of the best Las Vegas restaurants make lunch feel like an escape from the busy, glitzy Strip. At Veranda, diners looking for some peace and quiet along with their lunch will find a peaceful ambiance and a menu offering a range of Italian dishes. Many Las Vegas restaurants feature an upscale atmosphere for lunch that goes beyond the standard mid-day fare of burgers or salads.

If you're craving sustenance more than a chic escape, Hash House a Go Go will fix you up with generous portions of comfort food. Diners looking for a lunch that will sustain them throughout a day of sight-seeing and gambling will find plenty of options on the menu.

Local lunch spots are also good choices for larger portions and reasonable prices, often serving innovative, creative dishes that are every bit as good as any dinner entrée.
