Vegas Golden Knights games at T-Mobile Arena are incredibly entertaining and fun to attend. With a little planning, the whole evening can be a rousing success from start to finish. Figuring out where to park and what time to arrive are both important. Pre-game dining, however, plays an even bigger role in setting up an epic outing.

While massive menus can be great, it’s always a good sign when a restaurant chooses to specialize and focus on a smaller selection. This is the case for Bruxie, a California export known for their fried chicken and waffle sandwiches. An intriguing take on a comfort food classic, Bruxie’s chicken and waffle sandwiches offer a filling, crunchy, juicy start to your night. And for those who avoid chicken, but don’t want to deprive their friends of this fine fried treat, there is an Angus beef burger or a vegetarian option. Place your order at the counter and take some pictures of their waffle iron wall while you wait. 

When it comes to setting the mood, visiting a sports bar before a game is a no-brainer. But Beerhaus is more than your average TV-filled, crowded bar. This beer hall offers an extensive selection of microbrews to please even the most erudite of beer drinkers, while still appealing to everyone else. Vegas Golden Knights décor and touches boost game-day spirit. It’s this atmosphere, along with the modest but enticing menu, that keeps this eatery busy. Condiments such as atomic horseradish slaw or onion jam decorate sandwiches and sausages, elevating the dining experience.

Shake Shack
Hailing from the East coast, Shake Shack has made a mark in Las Vegas with its New York New York outpost. Embracing the flash and design of its surroundings, this location features all the decorative elements of a Shake Shack franchise, but more grand and glamorous. Enjoy familiar favorites like the scrumptious Smoke Shack or crispy, warm crinkle fries in a fabulous setting. Get ready for the chill of the ice at T-Mobile Arena with wholesome frozen custard. This family-friendly restaurant makes sure to keep the adults happy as well, with an expanded beer and wine menu exclusive to the New York New York location.

T-Mobile Arena
Forget what you know about arena and stadium food – there are no tired hot-dogs or sad fries here. Dining choices can be overwhelming, as the selection is varied and large. Opt for local Las Vegas establishments for an off-Strip flare. Rollin Smoke is a BBQ institution with three other locations throughout the valley. The Chopped Brisket Sandwich is a unique standout, more than worthy of pre-game or in-game consumption. Go to Pizza Forte not only for thin New York style pizza but also for surprisingly traditional poutine. For a break from traditional stadium food, head to Tail & Fin, where an exclusive Golden Knights Sushi Burrito awaits. Order a Kirin tall boy to wash down the fresh fish while taking in the game.

With any of the mentioned eateries, keep in mind that game day will be busy and crowded. Allow plenty of time before the game. This will ensure your experience is fun and stress-free!
