    Best deal on buffets - Main Street Station ... then the Fremont. Golden Nugget has a very nice buffet as well, but costs are higher. ACG or LVA 2/1 coupons are always very helpful.

    For sit-down menu offerings - 777 BrewPub at MSS has a regular menu, daily specials, and happy hour appetizers ... Market Street Cafe at the California - good menu, prime rib special, salad bar ... and Magnolia's at the Four Queens has extensive menu (2/1 in ACG and LVA).

    Hash House-a-Go-Go at the Plaza has great food, but at a slightly higher price. However, the servings are so large, you could order ONE entree, and split it.

    Golden Gate - DuPar's diner ... in my opinion, "overpriced".

    El Cortez has a very reasonable diner, if the longer walk doesn't bother you.

    There's always the McDonald's at the Plaza, and also at "The D".

    Best dining/drinking deal: At the Sports Book in El Cortez, during BB games, $1.00 hotdogs and $1.00 drafts! :drunk:

    Seriously, some add'l dining opportunities:
    Casino properties:
    El Cortez restaurant "Flame" serves up a fine dinner

    Non-casino properties:
    Triple George Grill, on 3rd street on the way to the Mob Museum.
    Le Thai (Fremont St. East) for great Thai food, a small place, and often a line to get in.

    and of course there's always the new Denny's and Heart Attack Grill,:faint:

    I agree with the first reply, good breakfast buffet with eggs and omelettes cooked to order, MMS and Fremont. For a good sit down basic breakfast try Golden Grille at Gold Spike on Ogden Street. El Cortez 24 hour cafe had good food at a reasonable price, and there is a Subway shop in the lobby as well.

    After 4, California has a 8 oz prime rib special which includes salad bar and cherries jubillee for dessert. It was 8.95 last feb.

    Is the meat a good piece or all full of fat?

    Not only a good piece of meat ... but with the salad bar, a LARGE baked potato, a hefty side of green beans, and the cherries jubilee for dessert ... you will be hard pressed to eat it all. :licklips:

    If you like crab legs, MSS seafood buffet on Friday's. It opens at 4:00 if your still around. Check Restaurant.com for Triple George. You won't be disappointed.

    That prime rib special at the Cal has always been one of my faves, though, I'm not to keen on seeing it go from $5.95 to $9.99 in a year or two.
    The beef served there is as good as I've found on any upscale Vegas buffet. I also enjoy the old-school salad bar. And, old-school cherries jubilee, as well.

    One more question about the Cal special

    Does the salad bar include soup?

    No soup, but you can have it instead of the salad bar (which is pretty good, actually. Lots of unusual choices).

    Thanks, Sam.

    I do like salad bars so I'd stick with that.
