    Just a short walk to Ellis Island...off-menu steak special is good and they have great breakfasts...cheap! I've not tried them but had read that the tacos / margaritas at the little mexican place at Bally's is supposed to be good. They have happy hour - think the tacos are .99. We love KGB at Harrah's - the sliders were great. Hope you have a wonderful trip!

    Breakfast at Margaritaville. Get the French Quarter Omelet, coffee and a Bloody Mary, ask for a table by the window and get into a new day while watching the walks of shame down the boulevard.

    I hear Flamingo has some good eats inside it.

    Nearby is regular Mcds, Dennys, Outback, cinnabon, and a pizzeria nearby casino royale. lol

    Walk across the street to CP. The Serendipity has some inexpensive snack food and the munchbar inside next to the sportsbook is good food at a reasonable price

    Paris breakfast buffet is worth it.
    Try the Munch Bar at Caesars.

    Hmm. I just got back from Flamingo and honestly for all my meals minus nachos and frozen hot chocolate at the Serendipity take out place, I drove.

    My FAVORITE. Earl of Sandwich at PH, you can walk from Flamingo. It's not too far. But it's really good. Best thing you are gonna eat under $10 that I can think of. I went twice actually.

    Also not near the Flamingo but I had a great breakfast sandwich at 'Wichcraft in MGM.

    The Palm at Caesars Forum Shops. $20+ three-course Business Lunch. After all these years still perhaps the best food deal on the Strip.

    Bah. No, it isn't anything you're going to rave about, but it is good, typical buffet food at a decent price...

    we haven`t had the flamingo buffet in a couple of years.

    we didn`t think the food was anything special but that room with all the light and great view of the gardens makes it worthwhile.

    Print this coupon and walk down to Spicemarket buffet in Planet Hollywood. You can pay with CET points and the coupon. Lunch is $17 with the coupon so it is less than the Flamingo buffet and the food is much better.

    Right there at Bill's on Flamingo the Boyd free shuttle will take you to either the Orleans or the Gold Coast. Both have inexpensive buffets.

    It is a long walk to Terribles. I take the bus. But they usually will take this coupon at 50% off for solo. Maybe call before you go. It is the most downscale buffet you ever saw, but it is a $3 breakfast and a $4.50 lunch so pretty much a meal for the price of coffee.

    scroll down to the bottom and come up about 7 coupons for the Terribles coupon

    The Cafe there has good inexpensive food as well

    The build your own burger is pretty good, and the chicken marinated in tequilla is a unique taste.

    The Flamingo changed their buffet about 3 years ago, and now it's pretty good. Not great, but you won't be disappointed.

    We always eat once at Margaritaville and get a good quality for the price - nachos or a cheeseburger!
