Vegas eating on a budget

My daughter and her friend both 25 will be accompanying us to Vegas at the end of May, they won't want to hang around with us all the time and they are both on a strict budget, (daughters friend has used her student grant for this trip as it has been her dream to come here). Can anyone recommend lots of places to eat on their trip which are really inexpensive for them. We have already paid for their flights and room at the Mirage, so we aren't being stingy mean parents at all.

Thanks

There are bags of fast food places, but if they want to actually eat in restaurants then I'd suggest Grand Lux at Venetian or Palazzo, Cheesecake Factory at Caesars (pretty much the same as Grand Lux), California Pizza Kitchen at Mirage or Isla at TI. All of these are on the strip near Mirage and really good food and atmosphere etc.

If they head downtown then there will be absolutely bags of stuff within reach.

Hash House A Go Go at Imperial Palace gives you a huge amount of food for the dollar. There is a restaurant.com cert available for them also.

Spice Market Buffet at PlanetHollywood is another place to eat alot for a decent price.

Here is a coupon for $5.00 off of their buffet. You can print as many coupons as you want. Print some extras to give away, pay it forward, makes you feel good.

I wouldn't think the previous list would fit into the "really inexpensive" category. Many of the casino hotels have food courts - burgers, tacos, pizza. They would be pretty cheap and filling.

When you exit the Mirage ( by Rhumbar) and go across the street there is a McDonadls, Panda Express and a Chipolte. Also, just north of there is Casino Royale, that has a food court in the back with a Subway, a pizza place and a couple others.

Check out the TRs..one great way of saving is to share the meal. LV restaurant portions are huge.

AGAIN, not every restaurant has "huge' portions. Tell me where some of these places are and I'm there!! For sure, the fancy schmancy places don't. But then again, it depends on your definition of "huge" portions.

Vegas is like any other U.S. city. On the Strip and espeially away from it, there are all the usual fast food joints that are pretty cheap.

If they are willing to take the free Coast shuttle to the Gold Coast- Noodle Exchange has a great lunch (served until 4PM)- soup, sping roll, rice,entree- for only $7. The food is very good.

If they would like to splurge a bit and eat at an elegant, upscale expensive (for dinner) restaurant at a bargain price (for luch)- Milos (Cosmopolitan) serves a fabulous three course meal. It is probably the best value in town- $20.12.

When we are downtown, we generally eat once a day at either the Main Street Station or Fremont Buffet. I think MSS is slightly better. You can eat the buffet for $6, which incluldes tip. Go to: http://www.vegasexperience.com/coupons/ The password is REALVEGAS. Print the coupon. Take it to the player's desk. With your player's card, you will get a 2 for 1 voucher to turn in at the buffet.

We often split meals if we are not very hungry, or we will have something light (such as the French Onion Soup at Mon Ami Gabi).
