Food - $40 a day - Where would you eat?

If you only had $40 a day to spend on Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, where would you eat?

My choices: (I never spend much on food; I need the money to gamble).

Breakfast $5.00

MGM FOOD COURT

McDonald’s breakfast with coffee

I just eat breakfast so I won’t faint as I play the slots.

Lunch $7.95

THE ORLEANS LUNCH BUFFET

Delicious, the food tastes better than the MGM Buffet. My husband loves the crawfish. (the dinner buffet is around $13.00)

Dinner $10 - $15.00

ZOOZACRACKERS – The Wynn

NY deli style food. You order at the counter and take a number. You take a non-assigned seat and then you are called when your food is ready.

I always order the soup and ½ sandwich meal. The soup is delicious and the ½ sandwich (corn beef) is stuffed with meat. The deli is located next to the casino floor.

TOTAL - $30.00 (rounded off)

This year I am determined to eat somewhere different, but not too expensive.

Bellaio Breakfast Buffet (at 10:00am) $15.00

I like the breakfast buffet -- I get to sample different foods I normally dont eat at home.. Plus they dont roll their eyes at me when I order an egg white omlette with mushooms spinich and onions and salsa.. Meal holds me over until 4pm

Early dinner at Ellis Island Brewery -- $10.00 for Rib platter and beer

(really good)

The food is surprisingly good.. nothing healthy on the menu.~~. Great domfort food. Beers are $1 a piece.

Gellagto and water at Bellagio $8.00 for nice 10 pm snacking but always a nice way to end a day. Gellato is excelent. If someone never had Gellato -- it is an italian ice cream-- and very flavorful.. If you order pineapple ..it taste like you are eating a fresh pineapple. it does not taste like you are eating pineapple flavored ice cream..

Total $33.00 + tips

Personaly i would only eat twice a day,and in fact do.

Any good breakfast buffet at Wynn,Bellagio,Mirage etc will cost around $20.00 and that much food should last you until at least 6pm or later.

I would then go get a Fatburger,In n Out or Mac meal for around 10 bucks to satisfy my hunger needs.

John.

I agree with John on this one. I usually eat twice a day in Vegas (if that). A good buffet in the morning and maybe dinner at night. If I'm having a good time at the VP machines I don't even think about food.

Where are you staying? Most casinos will give you a coupon book when you check in. If you are staying at the Orleans, they have 1/2 price coupons for thier buffet in the booklet.

Go to restaurant.com they offer 50% off meals on the pre-purchase of the gift certificate....but be careful...sometimes you need to have a minimum purchase of $35 to get 1/2 off....but sometimes they have a promo code to get 50% off the cost of the coupon....lucrative business....but with the discounts....it's worth doing your homework.

Ellis Island has their infamous steak dinner for what, $4.95? Also, the orleans has their "graveyard special" from midnight to 7am sunday thru thursday...$2.95 for eggs,potatoes,toast & fruit...add $2 if you want a steak added to that.

Try the firelight buffet at Sam's Town, you can get a good dinner buffet for a reasonable price, our favorite is the Tuesday night Italian buffet. Prices vary depending on the night and you can get a discount using your slot card.

Nice Oriental menu served until 5 pm or so at the Monterrey Room in Gold Coast. Cost - around $8.00. I like the almond chicken - you get lots of food for the money!
