Ahh, Las Vegas. When I’m not off spending my vacation days in New York with the wife and kids, you’ll most likely find me here in this desert oasis with just the wife. Apart from being a respite from the kids–I love them to death, but it’s nice to spend some quality couple time with Vicki–Las Vegas is also where I get to kick my shoes off and put a pause on my regular routine.
Las Vegas is peppered with hotels and casinos, which are all great places to unwind and relax, but the costs can add up pretty fast. Luckily, Las Vegas is also filled with a ton of places where you can eat like a king but spend like a pauper so you can splurge on other activities in the Entertainment Capital of the World.
Breakfast Like a King
While there were a ton of other options that I could have chosen to highlight in this spread, I went ahead with Hash House A Go Go. While the restaurant’s name did make it a standout choice, their breakfast options also helped it clinch the top spot. Where else can you get a heaping plate of barbeque pork ribs for just $10?
Hash House A Go Go in Las Vegas apparently is a really popular place to eat in, so we had to wait a bit to be seated. The wait is worth it though. For the price point, they really do over-deliver on taste and serving size. Vicki and I split their Andy’s Sage Fried Chicken Benedict, and I’m so happy we decided to just order one because I don’t think neither of us would have been able to tackle that dish on our own. For $16, you get their famous fried chicken, eggs, bacon, mashed potatoes, all on top of their homemade split biscuit and doused with a generous helping of sauce. I’m pretty sure that the dish was made for at least 4 people.
Delicious Dinner Buffet
Because we were still stuffed from the breakfast we had at Hash House A Go Go, we decided to skip lunch, biding our time playing a few slot machine games at the Red Rock Casino Resort and Spa. We normally don’t lounge around in casinos, but since we were already in Las Vegas, we decided to “do as the Romans do”. We did have to exercise a bit of caution with our bags though; apparently putting illegal substances in other people’s belongings is actually a thing criminals like to do nowadays. The last thing we wanted was for either of us to get arrested for having drugs on us. Good thing we know a lawyer who is an expert at possession with intent to sell charges.
Time does fly fast when you’re in casinos because the next thing we knew, it was dinnertime. We had made prior reservations at the Feast Buffet at Red Rock, and boy was it worth the phone call. For only $17.99, we helped ourselves to a lot of good food. It was a Friday night, so we also got to stuff ourselves with some of the best tasting prime rib and shrimp. The best thing about it was it was an all-you-can-eat feast!
Las Vegas might be considered pricey, but only if you don’t know where to look. Next time I go back to Sin City, you might just find me in both of these places if I’m feeling a little peckish and need to eat.
