Chinatown Las Vegas: Asian Cuisine
We discovered that Las Vegas has a China Town. It is graced by a lovely crafted traditional Chinese Arch. The centerpiece is of the plaza is graced by a beautiful gold statue of the Journey to the West of Xuan Zang and the Monkey God is from the classical Tong Dynasty-era Chinese literature. There are so many wonderful restaurants to choose from here. It would be hard for me. Just standing in the parking lot made us hungry. We plan on returning.

Black Bear Diner: Great for the whole family!
We always try to find something different when we visit Vegas and vegas has no shortage of restaurants. Yet, we try to eat off the strip since all the noise and activity can be a bit much for my younger son. A friend told me about this place, so we tried it out. What a great place. Our plates were full, so you get your monies worth here. Has neat decor since the whole place is covered in Black Bear decor. It seemed it was a very popular place for the locals.

Cappos: delicious food + old school vegas lounge singers!
Cappos (the Sahara location) is awesome~ my roommates and I head there bi-weekly for the 2 for 1 entree specials. It's a great place to bring out of town guests to impress them with some old school vegas charm off the strip. It's speakeasy style so be prepared to go in through the back door and then in through a phone booth. Seems like a perfect date spot with all of the rich red tones, dark wood, smokey mirrors and candles. The lounge singers and live jazz is always a nice touch, plus the staff has always bent over backwards to make sure we're having a great time... Entrees range around 14 - 28 bucks coming with yummy fresh bread and soup or salad~ portion size is very VERY big...
Favorite Dish: I'm a seafood kind of a gal and i really like their salmon.. it comes with with sides of either mushroom risotto (soooo good) or garlic mash and either soup or salad (the salads are great).. Their bruschetta is the best i've ever had. My only complaint is that I usually eat too much. I've never made it to the deserts....

Petrossian Paris & Cafe Bellagio: Bellagio Options
The contrast between the Petrossian Paris, obviously a caviar bar and Cafe Bellagio just off the conservatory is literally night and day. You'll find long lines at the cafe for standard grub -- while at Petrossian you can have a non-caviar snack and drink and watch the world go by with a view of the lobby action and the Chihuly glass ceiling. It's a no-brainer for me, but then I'm not towing 3 hungry children..
Las Vegas Buffets
There are 60 buffets currently operating in Las Vegas — more than in any other location worldwide.
Each day, the buffet at the Las Vegas Bellagio Hotel serves 1,200 pounds of shrimp, 800 pounds of crab legs, and 800 to 1,000 pounds of prime rib. The food bill at the Bellagio buffet tops more than $1 million per month.
The largest buffet in Vegas can be found at the Excalibur Hotel and Casino. Fit for a kingly appetite, the Roundtable Buffet serves 800 to 900 diners per hour and between 3,000 to 4,000 people during breakfast alone.
The most expensive Vegas buffet is the Sterling Brunch at Bally's Hotel. The menu includes such sumptuous treats as caviar, lobster, and rack of lamb. This all-you-can-eat buffet averages about $72 per person, including cocktails, tax and tip.

Vegas boasts about the variety...
Vegas boasts about the variety of buffet and excellent dining with each hotel competing with another not to mention the many different local restaurants. Still, only in Vegas can you get a 2.99 breakfast with steak and eggs for the early gamblers or the all-you-can-eat surf n turf for 4.99.

Having a meal ?
If you're staying on the Strip in particular, the choice is overwhelming, and you'll almost certainly find a good restaurant to suit your tastes and budget in your own hotel. For that reason, the places reviewed in this section tend towards the higher end of the spectrum - it takes an exceptional restaurant to be worth making a special effort to reach.
In terms of price or quality, let alone convenience, there are few reasons to venture off into the rest of the city; good places do exist away from the Strip and downtown, but the best are right where the tourists are. The one exception to that rule is that certain cuisines have as yet been unable to get a foothold on the Strip; if you want Indian, Thai, or healthy Greek food, for example, you'll have to drive out and find it.
The Bellagio buffet, Mirage...
The Bellagio buffet, Mirage and Harrah's, MGM. I would not recommend the Tropicana buffet. We went last year and the food is okay but many of the tables are FAR from the food. They need to remodel.
Food at the Mirage is in center of dining room and there are two sections with the same food so you don't have to walk a mile for seconds.
Favorite Dish: Pasta at the Bellagio (made to order), Beef dishes at MGM and everything at the Mirage!
CozyMels (Mexican); The...
CozyMels (Mexican); The Outback Steak House; In-N-Out Burger
CozyMels and Outback are moderate to high priced but the food is great and its a nice atmosphere.
In-N-Out Burger has great burgers and FRESH french fries (you can even see them slicing them), and their Ice-Cream shakes are the best.
Favorite Dish: Everything is great!
I, for the life of me, cannot...
I, for the life of me, cannot remember the name of the Steakhouse in Bellagio but my boyfriend and I had a great meal there. It's expensive though. I also like the Pink Taco in The Hard Rock Hotel, it's cheap and filling mexican food.
The Pink Taco is very casual atmosphere while the steakhouse is the opposite. If you feel like getting all dressed up there are plenty of restaurants in Bellagio that will help make you look gorgeous.
Combined Suggestions: Buffet galore
I think every decent casino/hotel in vegas has a buffet. The price is usually reflective of the quality and the variety of the food on the buffet. If you get hungry while casino hopping, you do not have to stay at the hotel to be able to eat at their buffet...some people new to Vegas actually did not know this. Beware the prices though, this is not your 5.95 hometown buffet.... prices will range from 15-45 depending on the type of food and the "majesty" of the hotel.
Favorite Dish: My favorite buffet in vegas is the Rio Seafood buffet, hands down.

Exotic Fast Food!
I have lived within a ten mile radius my entire life, so when I went to Vegas, there were several fast food chains I had never heard of, and might I add much more tasty than their north eastern counter parts!
FAT BURGER~ The name says it all. If you were to order a burger with every topping they offered, you wouldn't be able to fit it in your mouth! I found it rather odd that you could get both sweet relish and dill pickles on the same burger YUK! Fat Burger would be comparable to a really good "bar burger" very tasty, and built to your taste! Very good steak fries too!
IN AND OUT BURGER~ I got a kick out of the name of this place LOL The afternoon we went, there were probably 15 couples waiting for their orders, and we still recieved our food in about 5 minutes. The burgers are your average McD's type burger, but they have tasty shoestring fries, unlike any of the restaurants up here!
DEL TACO~ Blows Taco Bell right out of the water. A little more expensive (which isn't saying much anyhow) But much more appetizing. Their taco sauces have a more authentic flavor, and a little more spice. Alot more generous with the toppings than Taco Bell by far!
