And they also serve up alcohol – you can choose from a wall of 8 different frozen cocktails, or just a nice cold beer.

This Southern Californian fried chicken joint has its Vegas location inside Park MGM, where it serves up delicious (and affordable) comfort food. Their menu is all based around the ingredients of chicken and eggs, with thoughtfully sourced ingredients and a blend of spices they’ve named “Crack Spice”.

Their chickens are locally raised and free-range, which makes their food taste that much better. With menu options ranging from chicken sandwiches to creative salads, amazing appetizers like Mexican Poutine to classic fried chicken, there’s something for everyone here.

Bāng Bar by Momofuku is a great spot to grab delicious flatbread sandwiches and rice bowls at an affordable price. Star Chef David Chang puts an Asian spin on spit-roasted meat dishes. Located at The Cosmopolitan, this restaurant doesn’t have seating options but is perfect for cheap food on the go.

Named after the Korean word for bread, this is the restaurant’s second location, the first of which is in Manhatten’s Time Warner Center. Vegetarians will rejoice that there’s an option for them with spicy eggplant as the main ingredient. We love their unique side dishes, like pickled shishito peppers and creamy bean salad.

Just 5 minutes’ drive West of the Strip at the Rio, this casual restaurant serves up tasty Vietnamese dishes like pho (sweet and tangy soup) and banh mi (sandwiches), as well as popular Chinese dishes. There’s lots of table seating but you order at the counter from their overhead menu.

You can build your own pho with a variety of adventurous flavor options, with beef, chicken or vegetable broth, and proteins like brisket, shrimp and fried tofu. Their menu has a lot of options to choose from, and nothing on the menu is over $16. We love their vegetable egg rolls, wrapped in lettuce and aromatic herbs.

Rí Rá Irish Pub Vegas

Rí Rá Irish Pub

Cuisine: Irish
Address: 3930 South Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, NV 89119

Inside The Shoppes at Mandalay Place (at Mandalay Bay) you’ll find something unexpected: an Irish pub. Here you can sip on a glass of Guinness in a comfortable neighborhood environment. Why does the experience feel so genuine? It’s an actual old pub that was meticulously restored in Ireland and then shipped to Las Vegas.

Locals and visitors alike love to hang out at this venue which offers an awesome lineup of live music, a great selection of drinks and delectable food. We especially love their deviled scotch eggs. Oh, and every day from 11am to 4pm they serve afternoon tea in an ageless Irish tradition.

We recommend: Haddock and Chips (crispy beer-battered haddock served with fresh cut chips, coleslaw and choice of tartar sauce or Irish Remoulade) – $14.95


Café Hollywood Las Vegas

Very centrally located at Planet Hollywood you’ll find this Hollywood-themed retro diner. A recipient of 2020 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Award for Restaurants, this joint has a fun, hip atmosphere. Café Hollywood is open 24 hours and serves up and eclectic menu of American, Chinese and Italian dishes.

We love the fact that they serve all-day (and night) breakfast with generous portion sizes for a great price. And we can’t keep from mentioning their incredible milkshakes, including the Cosmic Cotton Candy Super Nova (topped with rainbow sprinkles, white chocolate covered pretzels, cotton candy and a lollipop!).

Secret Pizza at The Cosmopolitan

Secret Pizza at The Cosmopolitan

Cuisine: Pizza
Address: 3708 South Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, NV 89109

This place really is a secret, but maybe not for long. You can get a large New York Style pizza slice for around 5 dollars. Whole pizzas are also available. Finding this hidden pizza gem is a definite challenge, but well worth it. You won’t find any signs at the Cosmopolitan hotel where it is located giving you directions. You will find it near the Blue Ribbon restaurant (3rd floor) in an alley with vinyl records on the walls. Just keep walking until you find it. Their pizza is delicious, but don’t tell anyone or they might start raising their prices!

We recommend: White Pizza and Sausage & Pepperoni – $5


Thai Street Cafe Vgas

Thai Street Cafe

Cuisine: Thai
Address: 3137 S Sammy Davis Junior Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89109

If you’re in the mood for some delectable Thai food at an affordable price, Thai Street Café is just a 5 to 10 minute drive from the Strip. This is a spot that the locals come to for what many of them call the best Thai food in Vegas.

You’ll be a little thrown off by their location between a sex shop and an erotic heritage museum, but don’t let that put you off (that’s just Vegas for you!). Inside the restaurant there is a comfortable, modern atmosphere, really friendly service and authentic Thai dishes that will blow you away.

We recommend: Pad Thai (choice of meat, stir-fried thin rice noodles, bean sprouts, green onion, egg, peanuts, tamarind sauce, cilantro) – $11.95
