Dining in Vegas for Under $15

Las Vegas used to be known as the town that wouldn’t break the bank as long as you stayed away from gambling. Casinos used to cut their losses on cheap food by assuming that they would make up for it in the casino. Sadly, this is no longer the case. Casinos are now scrambling to hit up tourists anyway they know how and the price of food especially, continues to rise as high-rollers expect higher and higher quality in dining options. However, some of us are not in town for the food and many people are just looking to fuel up and get back to the slots. So here are a few ideas on how to see Vegas and enjoy meals under $15.

The best way to eat for not a lot of money is at one of the many buffets. Some are very good, but also very expensive. The Buffet at the Monte Carlo is a great place to check out if you are looking to save a few poker chips. Breakfast and Lunch are well under $15 and their dinner is only $18.95 which is a great deal considering some of the prices at other strip buffets. This buffet doesn’t skimp on service either, they offer carving stations as well as a few different made-to-order dishes each night. Other low-price buffets include: The Bay Side Buffet at Mandalay Bay, Bistro Buffet at the Palms, or the Chinese Kitchen Buffet at El Cortez.

Some people really aren’t into the buffet scene, and it really is possible to eat cheap food and still be offered the luxury of sit-down dining. Ellis Island—which is a little bit off the strip but well worth it—offers a 10 oz. steak dinner for only $6.99. The dinner comes with potatoes, green beans, bread, and even a beer on the house. This restaurant is a great option for steak lovers. For the pasta lover, check out the all-you-can-eat pasta, salad, and bread at Pasta Palace at the Boulder Station. This special is available Tuesday-Sunday 4pm-9:30pm. If you’re looking for a really great value when it comes to breakfast, Victory Café at the Cannery Casino Hotel offers two eggs, home fries, and bacon or sausage for only $1.99. If you promise not to tell your friends, we will let you in on a little secret that is kept at Terrible’s Bougainvillea Café. They offer a delicious T-bone steak dinner for only $9.99. This one also comes with a beer; the catch is that this deal isn’t on the menu. It’s available 24 hours, but you have to ask your server. You may want to keep it quiet, though. If not, they might have to kill you.

However, if you’re not into hunting down the bargains there are a few places right in the middle of the action who always offer good deals. So, put your coupons away and check out these great diners. Mr.Lucky’s 24/7 is a favorite on the Las Vegas dining scene. This all-American diner has a classic feel with some up-to-date flavors. While most casinos offer some sort of 24/7 dining spot, Mr.Lucky’s is truly one of the best. Located at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, you are sure to find a great meal at a great price at Mr. Lucky’s. It also happens to be one of the trendier late night spots on the strip, especially for the after-club crowd. Other good diner options include: the Peppermill, or Café Siena at Suncoast Hotel. There really are a lot of places to eat in Las Vegas that won’t cost you a lot of money and chances are you won’t have to lower your expectations as Las Vegas is known for its food and even places serving up some good deals will still be serving up delicious food as well.
