Cheap Places to Eat on the Las Vegas Strip

Finding ways to eat cheap in Las Vegas is an effective way to stretch your budget and conserve cash for more exciting activities, like gambling (we kid, we kid… kinda). One thing we always try to do is find cheap restaurants to eat at for breakfast and lunch and then splurge on something more upscale for dinner. With prices for nearly everything on the Las Vegas Strip on the rise, where can you find a cheap meal anymore? Fortunately, most Las Vegas Strip resorts offer at least one budget option to cater to those looking to save money on meals.

Cirque Du Soleil’s Beloved ‘O’ Returns To The Las Vegas Strip

Ask anyone who’s seen “O” to describe it, and they’ll most likely open their mouth to speak, take a pause, think a bit, and come up with something like, “It’s just so beautiful!” It really is almost impossible to put the experience of “O” into words, and that’s kind of the point. After all, the show does not follow a linear storyline—there’s no hero, no heroine, no climactic scene that wraps everything together. It’s more a series of elegant, highly athletic moments, peppered with bits that seem like they were pulled from another dimension. Oh, and there are clowns, too!

We Went to the New ‘Secret’ Speakeasy Bar in Las Vegas – Here’s How To Find It

Vegas is all about the glitz, glamour and special access. It’s a place where there are VIPs and real VIPs and it’s socially acceptable to flash a player’s club status card to cut everything from the nightclub queue to the regular taxi line. Stretch limos pick up high rollers and whisk them from the airport to private driveways at casinos. Hidden elevators lead to suites that can’t be booked, regardless of how much you want to pay. There are regular pools and then there are the VIP pools. And there are special blackjack tables that simply say “reserved.”

Newkirk’s Notes

Access Vegas Founder Ted NewkirkHello From Las Vegas! – Vegas is in full swing, and I hope and trust that normal is here to stay. My job has plenty of behind-the-scenes drudgery. Comes with the territory. But usually, one of the fun parts is keeping you up on all the great Las Vegas info you need to know. Much of it which you simply won’t find elsewhere, or won’t find our “below the headlines” take which keeps you super-informed.

What To Know About Resorts World – Resorts World opened with a bang. A pretty impressive fireworks show from the rooftops was visible for miles! Dignitaries and celebs and billionaires mingled.

As someone who lived through the casino boom of the 90’s, and through the past decade of no new mega-resort on the Las Vegas Strip, I had almost forgotten what this feeling was like!

The Las Vegas skyline used to change so often, you didn’t notice. When Resorts World turned on their exterior lighting and started testing their video screens, I noticed. Driving home from a grocery run one night, I turned into my neighborhood and literally just about came to a standstill as something was different. The skyline was different. There was the top of Resorts World!

I will highlight some interesting things to know, but we’re not going to get into the nitty-gritty. Not everything is open yet, all new resorts have kinks to work out, and the first few days of a new resort are not representative of it in day-to-day operations.

Does the resort have something that will appeal to most? Yes. Just the amount of different feels from various color schemes gives various areas of the property different vibes. 40 food and beverage outlets will assure you can find something you like. At Strip prices, of course.

Side Note: We’re always looking out for our frugal members. Cross the street and you’ll find (starting from Resorts World Avenue, where you can cross at the light). Mentions do not constitute an endorsement:

This column, breaking down

– Must-know about Resorts World cashless gaming. Even if you prefer to play with cash, there is one situation where using their system will save you money.

– Why you should (or should not) make it a point to visit Resorts World, and what to expect.

– The best North Strip food spots (and we list a variety of cuisines) that have locals pricing if you want to avoid Resorts World “resort” food prices.

– How to get locals pricing on amazing food regardless of what hotel you are staying at (and, without taking an Uber)

– The $5 show, which includes a free cocktail, that you probably don’t know about.

…and Much More, continues for our Members HERE.

Ted is a noted and quoted Las Vegas analyst, having been quoted and sourced multiple times in 2020 alone in publications ranging from the Las Vegas Review-Journal (Nevada’s largest newspaper) to U.S. News and World Report.

Newkirk’s Notes go well beyond the basic news, rumors, and (often questionable) thoughts and proclamations floating around on the internet. Our Supporting (Paid) Members know not only what is happening, but why, and how they can benefit (or know what to avoid).

For example, countless Members have had incredibly enjoyable and successful visits to Las Vegas during COVID simply because they were truly in the know, and not only knew what was happening, but what was on the horizon.

Saving them money, time and inconvenience.

5 New Las Vegas Hotels to Book For an Indulgent Post-Pandemic Vacay

If you’re planning a Las Vegas vacation, the question of “where to stay” will likely come up before you book flights, pool party cabanas, and restaurant reservations. Fortunately, the past year has been a boom period for hotels, with all-new builds and dramatic renovations that even a pandemic couldn’t slow down. Vegas has taken a sharp turn away from the one-dimensional exteriors of the Excalibur, Luxor, and other themed hotels; now preferring bold, contemporary spaces where guests are less likely to get lost in a casino and encouraged to explore a wider variety of attractions.

– The absolute BEST place to watch them from, with a cocktail in hand, and how/where/when to go there. (Hint: We’re talking a well-known hotel casino. Not some crazy place you need a long Uber ride to get to).

– What near-Strip spot the locals watch the fireworks from. (Usually only 20-30 people know this spot, which is close-in, North Strip).

– $5 Golden Margaritas (featuring Sauza Gold Tequila) all summer long. At which downtown hotel casino? Our Members know!

We’ll ask you for some details pertaining you your wants and needs. Then, answer accordingly.

My wife and I just returned from a 20 night stay in Las Vegas. Hadn’t stayed on the strip for a few years and after 2 nights at Harrah’s, I can say I won’t stay on the strip again. They charge a $37 per day resort fee for comped rooms.

Tried to check in at noon and was told a room was available but there would be a $15 charge for early check in. I declined that offer. Had a few dollars free slot play with my offer, but had to arm wrestle people to get it. Seems they couldn’t locate the offer in their system even though I showed them my paper copy.

The cocktail service was horrible with the waitress coming by every hour to hour and a half. The video poker machines offered 7/5 and 6/5 odds on double double bonus. Food prices on the strip were astronomical. A whole pizza was price at $49 and a hamburger at $15.

By contrast, I was pleased to see downtown is still a great place to stay. Spent 18 nights there alternating between California, Fremont, and Four Queens. We have been a downtown fan for many many years. Hoping to see Main Street Casino open again as we have always been a fan of their offers. Of all the downtown casinos, we think Four Queens is the best for taking care of their customers.

Happy Birthday Las Vegas (opening and excerpt)

(Producers Notes) The following cut is from a 1977 ABC TV special called ‘Happy Las Vegas’. This 2-hour special celebrates the city’s anniversary and, speaking as a Old Vegas fanboy, it is a blast! As you can tell by the list of guests, it is a dozy. Almost each star performs at the front of resorts like the Sahara, MGM Grand, etc. There are some local historical figures like Benny Binion (seen at the end of this clip) featured briefly. All I got to say again that this show is a hoot and you can get your own copy at Modcinema. This not a commercial, but a recommendation! Be prepared to get punch in the face with 70’s Vegas….oh, this also contains original commercials, too. Can you dig it? Can you handle it!?!?!
