    I know about the $2.99 breakfast special at the Sterling Spoon Cafe at the Silver Sevens. Can folks tell me their favorite meal special (breakfast, lunch, dinner, etc) that is not on the menu?

    I like the porterhouse steak dinner unadvertised special at California casino's Redwood Room restaurant for $24.95. Includes soup or salad, good sized steak, choice of potato or rice, vegetable side and apple dumpling with ice cream for dessert.

    I haven't had them, but I've read a few places that the meatballs (not listed on the menu) at Carbone at Aria are amazing.

    I've heard about the meatballs at Carbone's as well. Anyone know if they are an entre, side dish or an appitizer?

    Steak special 7.99 at Ellis Island. Still good in my eyes.

    Definitely the steak special. Charbroiled to perfection and tender. It beats a lot of $35 steaks around town!

    There is also the 7.77 special at Mr. Luckys in Hard Rock. Someone please correct me if they don't still have it. It's been awhile.

    It was called the "Gambler's Special" but now appears to be called the "Players Club Special". Appears to still be available, along with a couple of other "Not on the menu" specials.

    Yep! And don't forget the $6.99 steak and eggs breakfast special at EI. This price is valid until 10 or 11 am, and the steak is just as good as what you get for the dinner special (although it might be slightly smaller). A splendid way to start the day: steak and eggs at EI, followed by $5 3:2 blackjack or 25c 9/6 JoB VP.

    Binions also has a few discounted meals with players cards in their cafe. One is the hangover special..its a burger with an egg on it. I think the other is called the gamblers special. Its 2 eggs, hash browns, bacon or sausage and toast. I don't know the prices off hand, but its always decent and cheap.
