There are so many great eats in Las Vegas. While the all-you-can-eat buffet’s on the strip are a popular choice, there are so many great places to sink your teeth into off the strip that are to-die-for. From pizza to soul-food, here are five great choices you must try on your next trip to Vegas. So skip the strip to savour succulent spreads in Las Vegas
Top This Pizza
Pizzas are topped with lots of cheese, fresh vegetables and the best meats. Godfathers Supreme, Taco, Philly Steak, Italian Stallion, BBQ or Buffalo Chicken are just some of the crave-able flavors you can enjoy at Top This Pizza. You can eat in, order online and they even deliver. You really can’t beat the convenience. Top this Pizza is definitely “doing the most” because even if pizza is not what you are craving for the moment, there is a plethora of other options available to appease your appetite including sandwiches, Panini’s, wings, fingers, fresh salads, soups, pasta, desserts, and a host of refreshing drinks. All of the options are as delicious as the other, all equally delectable.
Battista’s Hole in the Wall
If we are going to make a quick list of some of Las Vegas’s fabulous little hidden gems of dining, then it would be appropriate to include a local legend. Battista’s Hole in the Wall is a fine dining authentic Italian treasure. It has been a family owned and operated business for over 30 years. A convenient location and amazing culinary selection make this a locals dream destination. You can come and enjoy fantastic cuisine and the vibrant nostalgic atmosphere of what was old Vegas and still remains as new Vegas. Pick an entree, soup or salad and you are almost done. Now you just have to deal with the issue of Battista’s offering up unlimited house wine and garlic bread. That little perk is quite a nice addition to a meal that has somewhat endless entree options. A very cheesy lasagna, several different pasta arrangements, chicken, veal, and fish dishes, and steak choices. Not bad for a “hole in the wall”.
There are undeniably a handful of sushi places on the strip, but they are overpriced. Many locals have made Kona Grill one of their favourite restaurants because the quality is on par with other restaurants on the strip but without the high priced bill. It’s not your every day sushi spot. They put their own twist on many different dishes that gives them a cool swagger that resonates will with customers. From Kona calamari, flatbreads to full entrées that include an entire filet, there are excellent choices.
Over 24/7, Tofo Hut is the place to head to for everything from a random lunch, to birthday parties to the 4am late-night cravings after a night at the club. It’s the kind of comfort food that you crave at all hours of the day. It’s a great experience. First you select your meats and vegetables. You cook your own meats at your table on your very own grill sitting right in front of you. It’s quick and simple. It takes a regular dinner into a fun party, without even really trying. Choices range from grilled brisket, pork, chicken, beef ribs, and an endless arrangement of vegetables.
M&M Soul Food Café
You don’t have to go to Atlanta for great soul food. M&M Soul Food Café keeps it as real as can be. It’s not exactly what people expect from a Las Vegas eatery, but they shine when it comes to delicious food. Try everything from fried chicken and pork chops, to catfish and gumbo. M&M covers all the Southern bases. Sides include collard greens, candied yams, red beans and rice… along with a host of other dishes. It’s a welcoming atmosphere and a fantastic choice if you’re craving home cooking.
