Cheapest beer and Buffets walking distance from Flamingo,s

We are spending a small fortune on this trip from Australia to Vegas and can budget for more expensive places and will but we both take great joy in finding cheap eats and drinks,perhaps its reminiscent of our younger back packing days? but to us its a bit of fun and all part of the trip,well a big part of the trip it seems :)

Cheap beer at Stage Door. It's at E Flamingo and Audrie behind Bill's, a 5 minute walk from Flamingo if you leave from the rear of the hotel. Carry on along Flamingo to Ellis Island for cheap eats and more cheap beer.

Bill's itself has cheap beer by Strip standards as do O'Shea's and Casino Royale, both in walking distance north of Flamingo.

Bit of a hike but they are certainly walkable to me. Gold Coast and Terribles for cheap buffets, pretty good for the price. Sign up for a players card to get a further discount.

Terribles gets a bit of a bum steer in reviews but is it really that bad?

http://cheapovegas.com/vegas_cheapo_eats.php is your friend

Harrahs buffet is really good....deals can be had from coupons in the 24/7 book in the back of taxis.

Are you staying at Flamingo? The buffet is bearable there and when you check in you should get a coupon thing for a fiver off or whatever.

Remember though that the price of a cheap buffet compared to a standard buffet really isn't that big.....might be worth spending the extra tenner.

Also...check out the 24hr buffet pass here... caesars.com/total/…

$2.50 beer and a hotdog at Stage Door is going to be hard to beat.

Bills has big Elvis going on, they have a wheel they spin that dictates the drink specials for the next hour or so, can be fun and is cheap as chips.

Travelling as far as you are im hoping you give downtown a try. There you will find just about everything cheaper.

You know its easy to jump on the bandwagon and slate Terribles buffet but 9 times out of 10 these words come from people who heve never even eaten there.

I make it my business to visit and eat there every time i am in Vegas, with a coupon from ACG or LVa plus the discount for a players card you can get a Champagne Brunch or a dinner buffet for about $4, breakfast runs at about $2 something.

The food isn't gourmet for sure but its certainly not as bad as some people like to claim.

10 pints of Ellis Island dark beer on the way back (all free with coupons from the said books) and your good to go!

Cheers.

JNC1970,

You've got my attention now, never had a dark beer in Vegas before and you reckon I can get ten pints of the stuff free at Ellis Island, tell me more.

Well Elmees1 its not quite so simple but it goes like this.......

Either A. Sit at the bar and play bar top VP or BJ for 5 cents a go and the beers keep flowing freely, you need to tip old misery guts in there or he will ignore you even more than when you do tip.

Or B. Purchase the American Casino Guide and the Las Vegas Advisor, one has a coupon good for 4 drinks free and the other 6. Happy Harry will let you have the drinks over the course of a couple hours reluctantly ie. Not giving you 4 or 6 at once.

Enjoy!
