    Foot Long hot dog @ Casino Royale - all the way in the back - delicious and priced right
    Lobster Roll @ Luke's Lobster - it's just amazing
    Buffet @ Main Street Station - haven't been since the re-opening, but planning on this trip
    Double Double animal style @ In N Out

    Anything too fancy is wasted on me. I just enjoy a delicious meal, regardless of cost. :feedme:

    so many great places to eat and i checked out many on my 30 plus stays in vegas a few sure bets are for me the following:thumbsup:

    Ellis island (love the californian breakfast at about 8$ and love the 7,99$ steak special(with your card and playing a bit vp):thumbsup:

    Hash house a go go at the linque.....they have some nice and good food ..my favorite fried green tomatoes:thumbsup:

    Another sure bet is cheesecakefactory (located at end of caesars forumshops) :thumbsup:

    gordon ramseys steak at Paris (yeah a bit fancy and overpriced but so what sometimes you have to indulge yourself)

    I just spent yesterday making reservations for our trip in December. The standards include: SW, Lago, Pizza Rock, Smith & Wollensky (lunch). Typically, we also hit L'Atelier. However, we are trying the following new restaurants: Casa Playa, Allegro and Cut.

    I really happen to like Magnolia's. I eat breakfast there daily when I'm downtown and their burgers and gumbo are really good.

    Here's mine. And one of my favorite things about Vegas is the food variety, all in a small area.

    Bouchon or Bouchon Bakery - if I can't get one, I'll go to the other for my standbys.

    White Castle! - I've missed it my last 3 trips. Why!?!? :cry:

    Chandelier bar - does that even count?

    Jaleo - must-have, every trip!

    The Juice Standard

    Ri Ra - If I'm staying close by, it's a must

    China Poblano - good variety, great price, always delicious.

    New to my list: Mon Ami Gabi for breakfast - sooo soo good!

    i always have to laugh when americans say ohh whitecastle great yeah when i was young and drunk i always went there it was great:yuck:
    as a part of doing a burgertest in my 2nd hometown i visited many burgerjoints (shake shack which was ok,fatburger which was good.....in and out very overrated, burger from ramsey was good,mc donalds and burgerking were ok too and yes i visited white castle ..the one downtown and ohh my god it was soooooo friging bad!!!i ordered sliders and after the first bite i had to spit it out:vomit:i threw away it all soooo bad!!!!! worst burgerjoint ever :thumbsdown:


    best burger i had was at the Paris sportbar/now burger brasserie situated on walkaway from bally s to Paris (i had the kobe beef and caramelised onions and goatcheese, my usa buddy called his burger the best he ever had)

    We are getting a pretty consistent rotation going but we also make sure to try a few new places each trip.

    Bardot, Carbone, Mayfair, Spago, Sadelles, Noodles, Javiers, Julian Serrano

    Mon Ami Gabi for brunch - savory crepes are rich and filling; corned beef hash and eggs; smoked salmon platter; country pate' (has not been on the menu the last couple of years, but they still had it when we requested it); outdoor dining
    SW Steakhouse - steaks were great along with the ambience
    Palio at Bellagio - coffee and baked goods are excellent along with the view of the pool
    Petrossian at Bellagio - charcuterie or caviar with sparkling wine while people-watching and listening to a live pianist

    Most of those places are the equivalent of FEBO in Netherlands. If you grew up grabbing something from there at 2 AM shit-faced, you love it, but if you compare it to actual food, it suffers. (I love FEBO, by the way.)

    I actually discovered shawarma at a place in Amsterdam called Doctor Shawarma in/near the RLD back in 2001. I don't know if it's still there, it's probably garden variety anyway, but GD that stuff was good after about 23 Heinekens and a fat bowl of White Widow. I've been eating it ever since!

    No secret hidden gems. My go to eats are at Cosmo’s cocktail hours. Other than that Nacho Daddy. Chips and salsa and a taco always perks me up.

    edit: but serious dude? Heineken?(normally i would say if it aint dutch it aint much but for heineken i make an exception..in my eyes as bad as white castle!!) dang worst beer ever!!!!(tried it but didnt liked it at all ..grolsch far better and nothing beats the special belgium beers brewed by the monks...
