Desperately Seeking Sandwich- The Best Las Vegas Late Night Dining
When in Vegas, it's really important to know about all the late night dining spots that offer food you might actually want to eat when you're sober and won't have you feeling taken advantage of in your
drunken stupor late night state. (Not that there will be much in the way of leftovers, but you could at least avoid a belly ache the following morning.)
A notorious night owl (and sufferer of the "Drunchies"), Casino boy is here to help everyone out there who are desperately seeking sandwich! Forget Susan - we need a hoagie and tots, please! We'll make it real simple for you, so that you can get off the computer, out to the bar and then on to your graveyard dining destinations. Here's a simple guide to the best Las Vegas late night dining. Okay, we'll admit that most of our suggestions aren't actually sandwiches, but that's okay with you guys, right? Let's face it - diversity is a must when it comes Las Vegas dining.
So here you go; Our favorite cheap pizza, sandwiches and tacos to tide you over until morning!
Avenue 24 Bar & Grill at the MGM Grand – Serves early morning favorites like the signature "Avenue 24", or, get your munchies on and try the “Scramble" - a two-fisted breakfast sandwich!
Mr. Lucky’s at the Hard Rock Hotel– A Vegas “fav” open 24/7 serving big time breakfasts including waffles, omelets, grilled cheese sliders (yea…), burgers, lettuce wraps, sandwiches and a Casino Boy favorite - the best milkshakes in Vegas!!
Secret Pizza at the Cosmopolitan: Okay, this used to be a secret, but the cat's pretty much out of the bag with this Vegas pizzeria by now. They have thin crust pizza, pin ball machines and they're open until 4am or 5am depending on the day (or morning). The line might be long, so bring whatever friend you made at the club to "entertain" you while you wait. Not to worry - the pizza is worth the wait, and the prices are very Cheapo-friendly.
Earl of Sandwich at Planet Hollywood: Our highest recommended stop for late-night dining at PH. They're open 24 hours a day, so you don't have to rush back from the club, unless you're just that hungry and/or really need a bathroom. All of their sandwiches are good, but the ones that come highly recommended are the Caribbean Jerk, Tuna Melt, Roast beef or even their breakfast sandwich if you get in before 11am.
Tacos El Gordo in Downtown Vegas is open until 5am on weekends, and their cheap street tacos and specialties bring in quite the crowd. Beware of the spicy stuff! Don't try to be a hero just because you have a few Miller Lites in you - it will not be worth it once you've sobered up and can actually feel the effect of the spicy jalapeno peppers. You can get it to go, and that way if you pass out right when you get to your room you have breakfast. Mexican is the perfect cuisine for an early morning meal right before you pass out, right? The only downfall is that they don't serve alcohol here, so make sure to bring a flask or come with your blood pre-marinated.
Ellis Island Casino and Brewery: The cheap eats here are almost as great as the beers you get at this Las Vegas brewery. A late night Vegas restaurant with a prime rib special might not seem all that special these days, but trust us, this is one of the best in town. Most of their food is good, actually. And really, are we going to turn down a spot where we can keep drinking through the night as we shove food down our pie-holes? That doesn't sound like us.
The Peppermill is right between the the Wynn and the Riviera, and you're sure to be "wynning" with a meal from here. (Bad puns are back in style, Cheapos!) Bask in the neon lights that are considered powerful even by Las Vegas standards. It's a little pricier than some of the aforementioned spots, but it's definitely still a Cheapo find, especially for it's location by the hoity-toity Wynn. Casino boy wouldn't steer you away from this place. (That being said, you really shouldn't allow CB to drive.)
Market Street Cafe in Downtown Las Vegas: We hear great things about the Oxtail soup and Hawaiian cuisine, but we like it because of all the great prices and the fact that it's a 24-hour Vegas restaurant. They've got tons of Vegas late night specials to ease the pain that will come tomorrow...
So there you have it. These are our favorite Vegas Cheapo late night restaurants for when we're desperately seeking a sandwich, pizza, taco, greasy omlette, burger, milkshake or whatever else your waitress will serve.
