Looking for the best meatball in Vegas - Lavo, Rao, another place?
I'm curious as to this inquiry.
I'm a three-meat meatballer -- unless going Greek -- but gotta admit that unless I'm making them, what are we really getting?
Yep veal, beef, pork. Is perfect mix. But now it seems on the store bought ones, chicken is the first ingredient. Same with hot dogs, I always read package.
The ones at Trevi were very tasty on my last visit.
I did not have it, but the meatball on someone else's plate at Off The Strip was about as big as a volleyball.
Had some tasty ones at Bootleggers
Rao's is Michelle's favorite followed by Matorano's. Just need the really good Sunday gravy on it!!
The ones at Carbone at the Aria are very good for a high end restaurant.
But honestly, the best I've had in Vegas have been at Buddy V's with the Sunday gravy - not as fancy as what you get at these other higher tier restaurants, but very much what an excellent home cook would make (they live up to the restaurant's mission to make food like you'd get at a traditional Italian-American family gathering).
I 2nd this. Buddy V's meatballs are excellent and I could lick the sauce ( gravy) left in the plate! Lol
I'm with ya... I like chicken, but not in my meatballs or my corn-dogs either for that matter!
Believe it or not, Pizza Rock downtown, across from the Grand. Try them.
I'll take homemade also. Using bison in place of beef makes 'em tender enough to skip the veal, which I prefer to do. You still need a second meat.
My vote is for Carbone as well. Had them at Scarpetta/D.O.C.G. as well, but Carbone wins.
Who can sit down to 2 lbs of ground meat? lol.
they are great and served until the early hours
I am really surprised nobody said the Kobe meatball with whipped ricotta at Lavo. I find it better than Raos and way batter than Buddy V's plus the Happy hour at Lavo is an awesome deal....buy a cocktail get a free appy. Should mention the meatball is big enough to share.
Kobe? American Wagyu, I would assume.
Did not have it, but a friend ordered the meatball appetizer at Andiamo at the D and said it was great. I ordered the escargot and it was just ok.
Probably mystery meat but says kobe on the menu lol
I used to love the ones at Carmine's, but the last time I had them the garlic inside was raw. Not what I want to bite into. And as an Italian-American from Jersey, I second the veal, pork, beef combo. My momma's meatballs and gravy are the bee's knees.
