    Cheap Food Is In Abundance In Las Vegas

    Cheap Food In Las Vegas

    You do not have to spend a lot of money in Las Vegas to have a good meal. The next few pages have great ideas for cheap food on and off the Las Vegas strip. Don't be fooled by the fancy restaurants and expensive cocktail menus, cheap food is easy to find in Las Vegas.  A few of my favorites range from the chicken sandwich at Shake Shack at The Park Las Vegas, Five50 Pizza Bar at Aria Las Vegas and the Hainan Chicken at Flock and Fowl.

    Check out Fulton Street Food Hall at Harrah's for an alternative to the typical Las Vegas food Court and stop into the Beer Park at Paris Las Vegas for an alternative to the typical Las Vegas nightlife.

    The only thing on this list that is not $20 because they have decided to make it $20.16 The best deal in Las Vegas, lunch at Estiatorio Milos at Cosmopolitan Hotel will make you want to come back for dinner. Sorry, at dinner the regular menu is available and it is a little more than $20.

    If you find yourself at Cosmopolitan Hotel your options for affordable are pretty good with Holstein's, D.O.C.G.and Secret Pizza. A couple of tacos and a beer at China Poblano might fit you under the $20 cheap food ceiling.

    Every one of these restaurants has hidden gems on the menu, just remember that alcoholic drinks are the killer of the cheap meal. Have free water and your bill stays low. Go downstairs and put a few bucks into a slot machine right as the waitress walks by and you can get a free drink instead.

    Cheap Food for Under $20 in Las Vegas: D.O.C.G. at the Cosmopolitan Hotel

    A pizza and Prosecco at D.O.C.G. and you and a date can eat for under $20 each. If you choose not to share your pizza( I usually don't) there are enough options that you will walk out feeling like you just robbed the place.

    This is a steal in Las Vegas and the idea that they are cranking that wood-burning oven into the 800-degree range just to get you an awesome pizza is all the reason in the world for you to stop by. You should probably get some of those stuffed olives, too.

    If you look over the menu you will find some affordable items but be warned that the price tag can easily skyrocket i f you don't keep your eye on the prices.
