    the Food Court at MGM is cheap and many selections to choose from. Not sure how cheap you are talking.

    As well as MGM food court - we like the Project Pie pizza place in the downstairs shops at MGM (forget what they're called - towards the parking garage)

    Just up the strip past the Grand Canyon shop there is a food court (upstairs) - it has Panda Express ( our favourite fast food!) plus Wendys, Subway and a few others.

    Across the street in NYNY there are several little eateries that are cheap, plus a Nathan's upstairs.

    Across and down, Excalibur food court has lots of options, Pizza Hut, McDs, Chicken place I have forgotten the name of. Also Johnny Rockets. is in Excal.


    Yeah, I like my fast food :)

    The Pub at Monte Carlo is reasonably priced as is The Beach Cafe at Tropicana, not cheap per se but good food, good prices.

    Get American Casino Guide for coupons to the food court at MGM. We always eat at Original Chicken Tenders - really good, Nathan's - love the Philly Cheesesteak. There are a few more in the ACG book too. Sign up for emails at Bucco Di Beppo- get a free pasta dish for two. Bucco is at Excalibur and they take reservations. Emeril's is great. The lunch and happy hour is affordable - dinner is pricey.

    Shake Shack is good, but not cheap.

    The "chicken place" mentioned at Excalibur is a Popeye's. Some of the best chicken in LV in my opinion.

    I like the chicken tender place at the MGM food court. Also the burboun chicken at Excalibur food court and Popeyes are my fav fast food places. I'll prob hit one of them once a trip for a quick lunch. A lot of people like Earl of Sandwich, which is at Planet Hollywood not to far away.

    Also Bobbys Burger Palace is not to expensive but great burgers. If you like a good burger, they are the best in my opinion. They don't have a lot of the fancier high end toppings and cheeses, but for just a burger, it's great.

    If you were traveling all the way up to PHo, go onto Koval and Flamingo and go to Ellis Island. Average entrée price in the café is $10. IMHO The Pub at MC is not that good, nor reasonably priced.

    There's a Food Court at Showcase Mall close to MGM that i go to http://www.vegas.com/shopping/showcase-mall-las-vegas/

    It actually is on the 2nd level where you overlook the Strip and can watch the NYNY rollercoaster. I'll be there in a couple of weeks, fast food with a view.

    Chalk up another vote for project pie in the mgm underground. I like their pizza and for like $12 you pick all the toppings you want and I often split it into two smaller sized meals.

    I would recommend Ellis Island; it is a very small casino located on Koval Street, which runs parallel to the Strip about a block east. Their coffee shop has super reasonable prices and their food is very good. Our favorites are the Chicken Fried Steak, Fish and Chips and their steak special. They also have a pizza shop, and BBQ out front in the late afternoon.

    Greenberg's Deli at NYNY if you like corned beef and pastrami sandwiches. The food court at NYNY is good too.
    The Fatburger suggestion is a good one in that area too.

    Chinese place at Monte Carlo has a good lunch deal. I believe it's $7.95 and you get the typical Chinese combo (entree, soup, egg roll)
