    Chips, guacamole and some corn on the cob that will make you rethink the issue of dieting while on vacation. Add a sope and some pozole and you have a decent meal for a relatively good price.

    Pizza at D.O.C.G. at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas.

    This is the pizza of my dreams and it is less than $15. They have a pre-show menu that is also out of this world. Some of the best quality food for the least amount of money on the Las Vegas strip. D.O.C.G. is located among a few fabulous restaurants that are not affordable, don't be fooled by the neighborhood, you can afford this one. Just because the restaurant is in the Cosmopolitan do not think you cannot get some good cheap food here.

    If you like noodles you'll love this place. Personally, the Vietnamese noodles are a staple for me at Noodles in the Bellagio. You'll get out of here for a tiny amount on a relative scale to the rest of Las Vegas restaurants with far better quality.

    I always include the Carnegie Deli in the cheap food category of my daily excursions. Lets face it, more than a pound of corned beef for about $11 means you can share a sandwich and a drink for less than $20.
