    We usually fly down and have never eaten off the strip.

    Next trip, we're driving down.

    Spending one night at MSS, then to Aria for 3 nights.

    Looking for lunch not too far off the path between the two.

    Open to all suggestions.

    Thanks!

    Alaho Specialities, on the bridge between MSS and The Cal.
    Or the Cal Cafe.

    777 Brew Pub in MSS.

    My husband and I also had the lunch buffet at the Golden Nugget and we both really liked it. Food was fresh, hot items hot, cold items cold and the service was very good.

    I think what you're asking is, where should you have lunch off-strip (not downtown) the day you drive from MSS to Aria?

    Ellis Island, if you've never been there, is the answer. Myself, I like the steak special ($10 or so, depending on if you're willing to jump through the little hoops to get the price lowered). Others disagree about its quality. But there are lots of good comments about the entire menu, too.

    I thought I was the only that likes the GN buffet. it cost more, but better than any other buffet downtown. if you have a coupon, its even better.

    maybe not the best, but I like to hit up the IN-N-OUT on Tropicana. I don't eat a lot of fast food but I wish they would expand to my home town.

    Vegas has GREAT non-chain, non-buffet options across every portion of the valley. You want pizza? Mexican? Thai? A great burger with a view? It is all there.

    Another off strip eatery that is really good is Marilynn's Cafe in the Tuscany, just down the street from Bally's. I have eaten there twice and really like it.

    Last time I was there, they had the steak an lobster special for 13.99. It was very good and service was great.

    I agree, I think it is the best buffet downtown and with the ACG coupon it is even better.

    Our upcoming trip, we are going to try it for breakfast.

    Rolling Smoke BBQ, not the downtown location.
    Can't wait!

    Thanks for all the recommendations!

    I'll narrow it down now.

    We'll eat at In-N-Out the day before, so burgers are out unless it's something extraordinary. Fuku Burger?

    We'll probably eat pizza later that day at FIVE50.

    I can eat downtown without a car, so lets skip downtown.

    I'd like something somewhat memorable.

    If I were to only eat at one off-strip restaurant in my life, which one should it be?

    Maybe Lotus of Siam? Would I need reservations for lunch on a Monday?

    Thanks again everyone!

    I enjoyed the sushi place inside M resort in Henderson and think you would to (if you're into sushi).. pleasant atmosphere--good service--friendly and attentive staff with good beer selection

    Well, that changes it. Frankly, if you're really looking for memorable dining off-strip, I'd just have a slice of the Forager pizza at Five50 for lunch, then go to Alize at the Palms for dinner (because they don't serve lunch). Expensive--not Joel Robuchon expensive, but pricey--but an amazing view of the strip at night and a fantastic meal to boot.

    Try the grill room at the Revere at Anthem, up high in the foothills of Henderson. TPC Las Vegas isn't as spectacular but the food is great.

    I know many on the board like to eat at Ellis Island but I've found the food and service there to be pretty bad. It's cheap to eat there yes but IMHO it's a classic case of you get what you pay for.
