Food courts in Las Vegas are easily the best way to cut down on the cost of a vacation. You don't need every meal to be a production. Sometimes you just need a hot dog on a stick or a slice of greasy pizza. If you end up spending less than $10 on a meal you should be proud. While the food at food courts is not always the highest quality it still manages to do the trick.

In Las Vegas, food courts range from greasy spoons to spots for some great finds for cheap dining. Tthe Venetian Food Court is great for a quick meal for less money. The convenience of the Monte Carlo or the Flamingo food courts are perfect for families and the food court at Mandalay Bay is a huge draw for those attending conventions. Caesars Palace has a food court nice enough to plan a meal around a show and a visit to the club. It's not fancy but it also is not like eating at the mall.​

The recent addition of the Park Las Vegas offers you a few more affordable food options but a good alternative to the food court at New York - New York Hotel and casino. You can choose from Shake Shack, BeerHaus, and a California Pizza Kitchen. A little longer of a walk also gets you 800 Degrees Pizza and Double Barrle Saloon.

    There are two Food Courts at the Venetian and this one is better with options such as Café Santa Lucia (Coffee, pastries and light fare), San Gennarro (Burgers, Paninis, and Salad), Cocolini Casino (Assorted flavors of Gelato), Rialto Deli (Soups and Sandwiches), and Pizzeria de Enzo (Soups, salads, and Italian cuisine). The food court inside the Grand Canal Shops is good but you can expect typical food court fare at that one. Both food courts in the Venetian/Palazzo offer great quick breakfast options.
