How to Find the Best Food in Las Vegas
Leaving for Las Vegas? We’d like to give you some tips and advice on seeking out some of the best places to eat around the famous strip that never sleeps.
The choice of restaurants in Las Vegas is overwhelming, especially if it’s uncharted territory for you. But whatever food you’re looking for, you’ll find fantastic flavours from around the world at the most famous watering hole in the wild west.
There’s haute cuisine for the high rollers and cheap street food for the grinders, plus everything in between for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner in the city that never sleeps.
Explore the Smorgasbord of Exotic International Flavours in Las Vegas
If there’s a dish you once had in a far off land, or one that you’ve always wanted to try, you might well find it on the menus at our recommended Top 10 Las Vegas Restaurants, which we update every month to feature restaurants that we’ve found on our food forrays around town.
We try our best to recommend the quirky and quaint restaurants that we find, where they serve up authentic international cuisine to help you find whatever tickles your fancy and gives you a unique, memorable dining experience.
Looking for some Mexican huitlacoche or Vietnamese spring rolls? Have you ever tried Cevapcici from Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, and Montenegro?
Or what about Gnocchi from Uruguay, or Poutine, the famous french fries with gravy and curd from French Canada? Or how about a Chilean-style hot dog topped with avocado, tomatoes, sauerkraut, and mayonnaise?
Somewhere in Las Vegas, there’s an Indian restaurant dishing up Saag Paneer, and you might even find a local diner with good old American lobster rolls on the menu.
For sweet dessert, hunt down a Spannish cafe serving churros and chocolate, or top it all off with a cheese ice cream from Peru. We’ve found all these fantastic foods and more, and we hope you get to sample some of them too.
The Town of Themed Cuisine
As well finding food in Las Vegas that’s from all over the world, one of the specialities that Las Vegas restaurants are famous for is bringing the rest of the world to you!
You can dine under trees in a rainforest, sip cocktails and chasers at pre prohibition-style blues bars, eat in total darkness or prop up a bar made completely of ice.
You can have yourself a very English high tea in a high-backed velvet chair. Or perhaps you’d prefer to tuck in to Tupelo chicken tenders and Santa Fe spring rolls next to a life-size statue of Elvis.
Mind you, the themed restaurants are a once-in-a-lifetime Las Vegas experience, especially if you’re like us and earning an average wage, and can only afford to eat at those top-notch restaurants on very special occasions.
But just sitting and watching the people go by is excellent free entertainment all by itself. As Las Vegas is a sunny place, it’s great to find somewhere outdoors to eat and just watch the world go by while you soak up the sun. Some of the things that you see and overhear are the kind of thing that should always stay in Las Vegas!
What’s your budget?
We like to treat ourselves to a decent meal at the end of the month, just after payday. It’s worth finding out which hotel or casino is putting on a special deal buffet for the day. Sometimes we find great deals just by walking along the strip and looking out for the special promotions offering all-you-can-eat buffets for a set price.
Here’s a quick budget and restaurant guide depending your situation.

Budget: $300+ per couple
Restaurant: Las Vegas casino / hotel private dining with wine
It’s been a good night and I’m feeling generous

Save a Few Bucks by Dining Downtown
A rule of thumb to follow if you don’t want to splash out too much for a meal is that restaurants on the strip will burn a hole in your pocket. If you’re looking for a more down-to-earth cheap eat then head to Downtown Las Vegas, where you can sit down to a hearty meal without worrying too much about the price tag.
