130 per day per person or for a couple? You can easily do 130 for either a person or a couple as there are McDonalds and other low end food places on the strip and downtown. Obviously if its for a couple you wont be eating at the higher end places.

I consider myself a middle of the roader and here is what we spend. Prices are for a couple:

Breakfast $30 - $40

Lunch - $30-40. It really depends a lot of times we skip lunch. We almost always eat at the pool so the prices are inflated and the total is mixed in with the bill at the end of the day.

Dinner: $120 - $200

for my wife and I id say 130 bucks per day is fine. but then again we usually just go to the buffetts and only really eat dinner,and have coffee sent to the room in the am.

drinks we usually bring our own bottle for the room and only drink on the casino floor.

$130 would probably last me 6 or 7 days downtown. Food is very reasonable and free drinks while playing. If not playing then $2 for beer at the Fremont.

Its doable even with drinks and eating decent. Not sure where your staying, but you can always cheap out on the breakfast and do a bagel or pastry. That would probably run you about $10. Eat a decent lunch, $15. And then a good dinner at a middle of the road restaurant , $40. Figure with tips your spent maybe $80 on food. That leaves $50 for drinks. Dont forget if your gambling you get free drinks.

What I usually do is have only one big meal and graze on light stuff through the day (pastries, gelatto, etc). I feel I get to experience the taste of Vegas better that way.

It depends where u want to eat... We tend to eat buffet breakfast $20, small snack/drink $15 and dinner either in a nice buffet or somewhere like cheescake factory or California kitchen $30-40. So that's approx $75 per person. We also tend to drink mostly when gambling so only spend on tips.

I suppose you could have a couple of cheap days - big breakfast $20, snacks from CVs $5, cheap dinner eg mc donalds, subway, Earl of sandwich $5-15... Only $40 for the day. That would mean you could splurge for a few days. I think your food/drink budget is v healthy!

It is easy to stretch your budget with restaurant.com vouchers.

With a little planning you can live like a King (or Queen) on $130 per day.

My food and drink budget is usually $50.00 per day. I don't really eat breakfast, so a cup of coffee and a bagel is the order of the day. I do a large lunch which runs me from nothing (I use my comps). If I do dinner, it's comped. So my $50 a day is mostly spent on drinks.
