BLT Burger: Hamburgers with a flare!
I found about this place from one of those Vogue magazines they had in our condo. You know those magazines are a wealth of information. If you can look past all the trendy ads, they have loads of information about where and what you can see. A very great experience. I little noisy, but that is because it is near a entrance, but other than that, it was a wonderful place to eat at. We will probably come back here for sure in the future.

Memphis Championship Barbecue: With a Elvis Flair
What a great place for the whole family! Great atmosphere, decor and so comfortable. The waitresses and waiters were so friendly. It was not hard to find and had plenty of parking. It has ample seating, even for a large family or groups. We enjoyed all are food and it was well worth the monies. My sons had the Memphis burger and from the kids menu chicken strips and fries. Me and the hubby had the Smoked Brisket. Really delicious. I recommend this place if your ever in Vegas.Related to:

Hot Rod Grille: 50's Decor, Food, & Fun
This place was great. We all enjoyed the food, service and decor. Some really neat things to browse and look at while we waited for our food. They had the 50's style booths, plus huge round tables for large groups. They had a bar with slot machines and they had another bar upstairs. What was nice it these rooms were completed separated. We got there and there were so many cars in the parking lot, so we thought it was busy. We got inside and not too many people in the restaurant part, which suited us just fine. Another thing, it was quiet, so that was nice. They had TV's with sports on, which was fine.Related to:

Winnemucca's Flyin' Pig BBQ
We had to stop for gas in Winnemucca, NV, and one of the only non-fast food restaurants that looked OK was the Flyin' Pig. We showed up just as they opened and they had to unlock the door for us as we banged on it, demanding service! We grabbed a few seats on this Saturday morning and they soon changed all of the flat screen TVs to college football. We both ordered the pig sandwich with fries special for about $6.25 each. We also had a Diet Pepsi and coffee for under $2 each. The service was good and the meal was also pretty tasty; the fries were especially light and flavorful.
This looks like it would be a very popular place to watch sports or do a little gambling on the video poker machines that seem to exist everywhere in Nevada.
Tod English's Olives Restaurant at the Bellagio: Tod English can still do a burger.
No line ups here now with the financial slump. Always friendly service and a treat to sit on the terrace and watch the dancing fountains of the Bellagio. Everything here is top quality in taste and presentation with an extensive wine list to compliment anything you decide on to please your taste buds.
Favorite Dish: This trip I felt like having a burger and Tod served up a juicy big hungry man sized grilled hunk of love. A side of parmasean cheese coated fries and I was a happy camper.Related to:

Basque Restaurant Overland Hotel: First Basque Cuisine Experience
The restaurant was recommended to me by locals that I had met earlier in the week. I arrived on a Saturday evening about 5pm. The entrance is through a 1950s era bar.I entered a room walled with cheap grooved mohogany paneling, filled with a dozen tables with clear vinyl covering light blue table cloths and surrounded with chrome legged , red vinyl chairs , also from the 50s.
The Latina waitress greeted me and explained that the service was family style, even though I was alone. I had the option of about 6 entrees, including beef, chicken, leg of lamb, lamb chops or shrimp....I chose the lamb chops.
The first course was a soup made with chicken and a shortgrained rice.....served in a stainless steel bowl with a big ladle....it was very tasty and more than I could eat. She also delivered a non descript french bread and a curious chilled bottle with a cork fill with a deep purple liquid which I discovered to be wine which I poured into the double shot glass next to my plate.....tasted a bit like a Chianti, but I have never had a chilled Chianti before.
Next course was a Spanish rice dish which the server likened to a paella.....rice, beef, chicken, sausage flavored with saffron. She also delivered a vinagrette doosed salad, again in a stainless steel bowl.
Finally, she delivered the main course..pan fried lamb chops (3) topped with cloves of baked garlic.....sadly accompanied with french fried potatoes , directly pulled from the freezer and fried in a standard deepfryer.....nothing special...I was expecting some exotic vegetable.....
Lastly, I was served a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a cup of coffee.......total bill $18.00 plus tax.
While the meal itself was just okay.....listening and watching the Basque family who ran the restaurant was quite interesting....at least three generations were on duty that night.
Lunch 12-2 PM
to 10pm during the summer
Closed on Mondays
Adele's: Continental Cuisine in a Victorian Setting
Adele's is Carson City's favorite restaurant for special events for families and couples or for power dinners with lobbyists and legislators. My visit to the restaurant will be remembered for a long time.....superb cuisine coupled with impeccable service all set in a quaint Victorian home decorated beautifully by co-owner and interior designer, Karen Abowd. The wine list is consistently awarded the Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence, a tribute to owner and chef, Charlie Abowd. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner but is closed on Sunday. Reservations are recommended even on a Monday night as I discovered, but the option of eating in the lounge was quite extraordinary.
Favorite Dish: I enjoyed the Veal Marsala, which was a hard choice to make since the server, Stephanie, had tempted me with at least 6 specials being offered that night
Genoa Bar: Nevada's Oldest Thirst Parlor
Genoa Bar claims to be the longest continous running bar in Nevada. No food....just liquor and pool table. Lots of interesting artifacts on the walls reflecting the rich history of the valley. There is even a trap door right in the middle of the bar that takes you to some mysterious place....employees wouldn't tell! But I did find out this about the famous saloon's colorful past. In 1862, Genoa Bar was called Livingston's Exchange. It was later purchased by another fellow who called it Fettic's Exchange, and was referred to as the "Gentleman's Bar." Fettic served only great spirits and fine cigars and tolerated no hi jinx . One time when he was out of town, he left the operation to the shy bootmaker across the street, Charles Daudel. Crazy lumberjacks from the next county found out that Fettic was away and decided to have some fun..They rode their horses right into the bar and ordered drinks while still mounted. Daubel would not stand up to them and the lumberman partied...For years after this incident, there was a sign posted on the building " No Horses Allowed"
Favorite Dish: Beside the normal bar drinks, beer and wine you can get a "Genoa Jack." Developed by co-owner Willy Webb, the drink costs $3.75 and consists of an ice-filled glass containing 1 ounce Jack Daniel’s and filled with ginger ale, topped with a splash of bitters and garnished with a lemon twist.
Fiona's Bar and Grill: Great Food and Drinks with the Locals
Fiona's is a real popular hangout for the locals of Carson Valley. The restaurant, part of the Carson Valley Inn complex, offers high quality steaks, chops and seafood, all served by a well trained, courteous and efficient staff. The decor is lodge style with a lot of cedar used on the walls. Currently, they have a great bar staff of three who also serve you dinner if you desire.
Open only evenings seven days a week , 4:30-9:30pm ....even the bar closes at 9:30pm. Happy hour is 4-6pm with a nice selection of hor d'oeuvres. Sunday brunch is served from 9am-2pm.
Favorite Dish: The steaks are great....prepared on a wood burning grill. The soup and salad bar offered with each dinner and is amazing....shrimp, prawns, marinated mushroom, fresh vegetables galore and no limit on the trips back! With each entree you have a choice of Fresh Asparagus, Creamed Spinach(my favorite), Steamed Broccoli with Hollandaise, Cabernet Mushrooms, Buttered Linguini, Loaded Garlic Cheese Fries, Log -sized Lodge Fries, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Cheddar Potatoes, or Skillet Potatoes with Onions!
I have enjoyed the Petrole Sole in Brown Sauce, the Honey BBQed Salmon, the Prime Ribs of Beef and the incredible wines that are offered both on a regular list and on a monthly specials list.
In five visits for dinner I have been pleasantly pleased with food, service and ambience.
Restaurants? What restaurants?
I remembered us patronizing lots of small local eateries... Nothing special but it was a great way to grab a quick bite before we headed to our next national park/ site attraction....

Everyone was talking about the Buffets in Las Vegas. I love to eat but unfortunately I am not very fond of Buffets and I thought I would like the ones in Las Vegas. um, NO! The lines are horrendous and food was mediocre. But I still love to eat and tried everything they had at the Bellagio and Paris buffets. I'm still planning on finding the best buffet!
The Buffet at Bellagio: The Buffet at Bellagio
Best value (even though one of the most expensive ones) and best buffet in L.V., excellent services, great atmosphere and free flowing champagne, but make sure you go before you get hungry, it's THE 1st choice for people in the know, lines always long, unless you're super lucky, prepare for at least 1 to 1 1/2hr wait.
Favorite Dish: King crab, steam/grilled Sea Bass, Jumbo Scallops, ... from carved meats to desserts, everything's fresh, top quality and delicious.
Just look at my daughter's face, you know the creme bulee at Bellagio IS her favorite.

The Buffet at Rio Suites. Best food and variety in Las Vegas. Even the locals eat there.
I like the hotel and except for the sometimes long lines, it is definetely worth the wait.
Favorite Dish: The seafood is always great, the sushi, but the Mongolian stir fry is the best.
Rio Buffett. If you can't...
Rio Buffett. If you can't find something good here, then they don't make it. This is a gargantuan buffett. Don't expect to see the rest of the family while eating here though.
Everything in the world is here.
