    Earl of Sandwich @ PH
    Hattie B's at Cosmo isn't super cheap but for $12 or so you get a lot of food.

    $1.50 hot dog with onion, relish, saur kraut available in the sports book at the Gold Coast. Big fat dogs, fresh buns. Also freshly popped popcorn. Wonder if they're open?

    Appreciate all the input so far. Also it's not that i'm necessarily cheap cheap, just looking for some great value. Something about getting a good deal makes it taste better lol definitely going to try some of these hotdogs!

    Anyone have a favorite prime rib deal/location?

    Earl of Sandwich at PH ( I get the high roller combo with the brownie, which is better than it should be)
    Scirrico's in NYNY for late night pizza slice (and sit on the side of the Bar at Time Square and listen to the dueling pianos)
    Nacho Daddy at Miracle Mile Shops for happy hour
    Beerhaus at the Park for afternoon happy hour, cheap (but good) beer and appetizers

    Seconding Nacho Daddy for HH.
    I also really like the breakfast buffet at MSS when open - an utter bargain and keeps me going all day without being too much - omelette, fruit, pastries, coffee and OJ, yum!
     
    Back to Vegas at last!

    Agreed... Can’t go wrong with Earl! And Hattie B’s is a must stop for us.

    Ellis Island BBQ is a pretty good deal although it’s been double digit years since I’ve had it.

    Redwood happy hour in the bar (social hour) @4:00. Great shrimp on a plate (spicy) 7$, French onion soup fresh and hot for 8$ (at 5 I think) and chocolate cake to die for. I’m sure someone can do it but 7 layers and rich makes it tough to finish over 3 days; but we’ve done it 8$. :feedme:
    But it is closed so neither socially approachable nor happy. :poke:

    For you Vegas rooks and those who haven't been or aren't Vegai vets there used to be a ZILLION GREAT bargains on and ESPICIALLY off strip and D/T. Started to change around 2006 or so.. but the time frame is debatable...and do understand many were off peak hrs.. But if one kept unusual hrs out in Fantasyland ( and to be who WHO DID'NT????) it could be a BONAZA of value of inexpensive ( and decent) dining.

    The Prime Rib special at Market St Cafe at the Cal is still a good value. It’s a pretty good portion but it used to be humongous.

    I think it’s $9.99 but wouldn’t be surprised it went up.

    And Primarily Prime Rib at South Point has a 10 oz prime rib meal that is really amazing. I believe it comes with house salad and starch and for the price point it is a great value. Around 14 to 16 dollars I forgot.

    But a wonderful meal and ambiance for the price of really outstanding prime rib.

    On the strip there are some incredible deals at PH and the Miracle Mile shops; I'll leave out Earls since it's been mentioned.
    1) Pampas
    2) Ocean's One (perhaps things improved since being shutdown).
    3) Blondies
    4) La Salsa
    5) PBR
    6) Pin Up Pizza
    7) Ringers
    8) Yolo's
    9) PH Cafe (perhaps the cheapest on-strip prime rib)
    10) GR Burger (most burgers were below $15 in 2019)

    Ruth Cris (Harrahs), while a chain, still produced the best burger I've experienced in vegas and its on the happy hour menu IF you're willing to eat in the bar area.

    Monta ramen and Merkato are my favorite cheaper eats and my favorite eats, period.
