From my own experience, dining in Las Vegas can be very affordable. After spending quite a bit of money on air fare and hotel accommodations, and having money to gamble, dining at a well known restaurant every evening is not a high priority. The 24/7 buffets at Las Vegas hotels certainly suffice. However, just as traveling to other cities affords me the opportunity to have one great dining experience, the same holds true for Las Vegas restaurants. Whether you are on a budget or want to splurge on that one fabulous dinner, here are 5 great restaurants in Las Vegas we know you will enjoy.
