    I just noticed that The Flame Steakhouse at the El Cortez Casino cut back on its days that it is open and the hours open during the day. It was 7 days a week 4-10PM but now the only time you can go there will be Wednesday-Sunday 5-10PM. This is my favorite place to eat downtown, plus I always had a coupon to cut the price in half. Times are getting tougher out there. :cry:

    Perhaps it was all the patrons who used to eat there on the 8th day of their stay at the EC! Oh well, I liked Roberta's better, seemed more hospitable.

    Wow, thanks for the info, NJGeorge. We had planned to use our ACG coupon there on my bday (a Tuesday) but now went ahead and made a reservation for Wednesday instead. Hope it doesn't cut it down any further!!

    I called and was told this is just temporary while they have a period of less patrons in August.

    Less patrons in August hopefully does not lead to less patrons in September...

    I am coming back November, so they will have one more patron. I might eat there a couple times just to keep the place open all week long.

    I was staying at the MSS this week. Had noticed an ad in the Saturday LVRJ for Flame. It said, " open seven days a week ".

    So, Monday afternoon I called for an Monday evening reservation. The operator told me that they are now closed on Monday and Tuesday.

    Ended up with a free meatloaf and baked potato dinner at 777 instead. And it was excellent!

    The El Cortez blog says that it's the Flame's summer hours and began on July 30. http://elcortezunderground.com/2012/08/07/august-promotions-2/ No mention of when they're returning to regular service but it does seem to confirm the earlier post that they simply have have fewer customers in August rather than being a long-term measure.

    I called the Flame today and they said it looks like the summer hours (no Monday or Tuesday service) is now permanent. :cry: I am not real happy about that as it is a great place to eat. :grrr:
