    Gonna be in Vegas on Friday night kinda spur of the moment. Gonna be my first time and I have a hotel just off the strip. What's the one thing I absolutely have to do?

    I never go on the strip, so I can't really help there. But if you need food suggestions let me know, there's a lot of really good, small food places off the strip.

    Edit: just realized you said you'd only be here one day so my food suggestions probably wouldn't be worth your while.

    Just got back! Find a show that interests you and go see it. I highly recommend any Cirq show or Absinthe, which I saw last week. Was a blast.

    Absolutely get a Creme Brulee donut from The Donut Bar.

    Okay, there aren't a ton of veggie/vegan places here that I know of, so if you don't eat meat I can't be of too much help.

    Lunch/dinner options:
    Wing King (inside Shooters bar on Sahara Ave) if you're a fan of chicken wings, I can't reccomend this place more highly. 60-something flavors to choose from and some really good desserts and sides. The thing I would say you have to try is the Pig Wings. They are 4oz pork wings, amazingly tender to the point that they just fall off the bone. Very delicious. You can't go wrong at this place, at least in my experience so far. Las Vegas Chicken Wings - 80 Excellent Royal Flavors WingKing | 80 Royal Flavors!

    If you're willing to venture a little further off the strip than that, another very good chicken place is Strip-N-Dip. Basically a place where you choose either baked, fried, or grilled chicken and a couple sides (they are known for their mac-n-cheese).
    BFG Restaurant - BAKED FRIED GRILLED Chicken Strips

    Beach Hut Deli is a really great sandwich shop with all kinds of choices. It's technically Henderson though and maybe a bit too far from the strip. Good veggie options here as well for anyone looking for it.

    Tofu Hut- a Korean BBQ place. Very, very delicious if you like meats a lot, but also a bit heavy. Wouldn't recommend any physical activity afterward. DOH KOREAN BBQ - (Menu)

    In Town Square there's a place called Texas De Brazil that is AMAZING, but it is very expensive. It is also a meat-fest and very heavy meal. Las Vegas

    Breakfast options:
    Omelette House- don't let the exterior fool you here, it looks like it won't be a good place from the outside, but inside its a nice breakfast diner. The omelettes are good, but the draw here seems to be their pumpkin bread, so if you're into pumpkin this is a good choice. I'm not particularly into pumpkin but I did really enjoy their bread.

    Babystacks- great pancake place with a bunch of specialized pancake options
    Home Page

    Sunrise Coffee- really good coffee and they have a small menu of veggie/vegan breakfast options that are delicious.

    Keep in mind all of these are off the strip and require a car to get to. I don't really have any on-the-strip rec's because I very rarely go there.

    @Meerkat did I forget any that you can think of?

    @Robk I think that's everything. Baby stacks was so good I made Rob stop talking so I could enjoy my pancakes

    Also if anyone ventures out here and wants to meet up at one of these to say hi just let me know.


    Some other cool places to visit off the strip are the Pinball Hall of Fame (basically an old school pinball arcade), town square, and that's all I can think of right now haha

    This isn't true. Despite her best efforts, I never stopped talking.

    If you're a coffee fan you might enjoy Sunrise as well. Pretty good vegan breakfast burritos and things of that nature.

    I feel like I can finally contribute to a thread here! I have found my place.


    Edit: quadruple post!

    I am not much of a coffee fan but I am open to most things because food is my favorite part of traveling lol like everything I do when I travel centers around food and where we'll be eating. Is it easy to get around? I get paranoid and two women traveling an unfamiliar place without a car makes me nervous lol!

    I will ask a couple friends of mine to recommend some good veggie/vegan places and get back to you with more options. I know there are some here, but I don't have a ton of experience with them.

    As far as getting around goes, it's hard for me to say. Walking the strip is easy and relatively safe during the day cause of the large crowds I would imagine but again I never go there so i wouldn't take my word. I've lived here since I was almost 17, so I've never had the experience of trying to get around here without a car. unfortunately I can't really be of much help there :tear: sorry

    Also if anyone here does end up in Vegas without a car and needs somebody to give them a ride for cheaper than a taxi/uber price just pm me. All I'd really ask is a little gas money and could help people get to some of the farther destinations if need be. Idk how useful that is or isn't. Just thought I'd throw it out there.

    thank you you're super helpful and such a sweetie offering to meet up and give car rides omg. I wish I had you to pick me up from the mechanic after I drop my car off in a few weeks!!

  20. I don't know where OP is from but if you don't have In-N-Out Burger where you live, or if you've never had it before, its a must while there.

    Babystacks looks SO GOOD! Really into WingKing as well, and my buddy is a big coffee guy so Sunrise looks like a lock!

    On the strip, try and get a breakfast at Hash House A Go Go, goofy name, amazing bananas foster french toast. You may also enjoy one of the buffets, the nicer casinos offer some really great buffets. I enjoyed the unlimited mimosas at the Wicked Spoon in the Cosmo.

    Thank you haha
    The people on this site generally seem to be really nice, so I'm always happy to help out if I can or just meet them and hang out.

    Who is Ryan? Prestigious

    Baby Stacks is awesome but it just sucks that they tend to get packed super quick. It doesn't help that the locations aren't super big and that they're only open in the morning til late lunchtime


    What hotel are you staying at? I always say avoid the Strip (unless it's your first time so get ahead and explore it a little and get it out of your system) and go for downtown. It's a completely different vibe from the Strip and is kinda in the middle of a complete rejuvenation. There's also Red Rock if you wanna go hiking but I wouldn't suggest it in this weather I almosted died riding the bus home from work :worried:
