Best Places to Eat in Las Vegas – For Fussy Eaters

Being a picky eater is hard work. Our diet is essentially exclusively filled with pizzas, burgers, chips (fries), and of course, sweets. Some call us fussy, personally, we consider ourselves to have a highly refined palate! This can make dining out a bit tricky, but certainly not impossible. Thankfully, Las Vegas is well equipped to feed us problematic folk and even has some of the best places to eat in the world. Period!

Buffets

The Buffet Stations

Buffets are the ideal dining situation for any fussy eater. The ability to swerve vegetables makes it a natural choice for us.

Las Vegas is the holy grail of buffets with over 70 to choose from. However, they are not cheap, especially if you opt to dine at a 5-star hotel.

There is the option to buy a dining plan which gives you unlimited access to several buffets for 24 hours. However, it is typically not worth the price as your eats are often MUCH bigger than your belly!

Prices range from $30-70 depending on what buffet, what day, and what time you dine there. Weekday brunches are the cheapest option.

Notable mentions include:

However, the best buffet in Las Vegas (and probably the world) is undeniably The Buffet at the Wynn.

Have you ever seen a restaurant more divine and decadent? Towering topiaries and exquisite floral displays line the dining room. This opulent restaurant is an experience that can’t be missed! It’s easy to see why this is one of the best places to eat in Las Vegas.

Not to be outdone by the decor, the food is also top-notch. There are 120 dishes to choose from, including 15 live-action cooking stations, you will be spoilt for choice.

Note: there is a high probability you will have to queue as the buffet is always packed. You can pay for priority queuing which drastically cuts the time you spend waiting.

Where?

Located in the Wynn, you will find this restaurant tucked behind the casino floor.

Price?

The price ranges significantly depending on when you visit. Varying from £38.99 for a weekday breakfast to $64.99 for a weekend dinner.

Best Themed Restaurants

There are several restaurants in Las Vegas that provide some form of entertainment whilst you eat. These may not be to everyone’s taste, however, they really do make your meal memorable.

Dick’s Last Resort

Warning: you’ll need a strong stomach if you’re going to eat here.

This is not because of the food – which is delightfully simple and tasty, but because you will witness a gyrating, thrusting man performing lapdances on anyone lucky (or unlucky) enough to be celebrating a birthday!

Your food will be served with a side of insults and you will be branded with a white paper hat adorned with an offensive phrase.

Where?

Located in Excalibur Hotel, you will find Dicks Last Resort immediately on the left as you cruise in via the travelators from the front. There is also, another Dicks Last Resort located on Fremont Street.

Price?

Perhaps slightly overpriced, you can expect to pay between $18-40 for a main meal. However, it’s a bargain if you consider how much fun and laughter you will get out of the evening.

Heart Attack Grill

The Heart Attack grill is another unique experience.

This restaurant celebrates all things fatty and overweight! So much so that you eat for free if you are over 350lb.

With a menu featuring a burger with eight patties, eight slices of cheese, and 40 pieces of bacon (dubbed the “Octuple Bypass Burger”). It’s no surprise that you are made to wear a hospital gown – you know, just in case!

Warning: Do not bite off more than you can chew (literally)!! You will be punished for not finishing your meal – this involves getting spanked by a waitress in the middle of the restaurant!

Fun Fact: their job application form is HILARIOUS, with questions including “was the American moon landing faked”, and “was there room for Jack on the raft?”! It speaks volumes about the type of people who work there! Click here to see it!

Where?

Located on Fremont Street in Downtown Las Vegas, you will find this restaurant very near the entrance to the Slotzilla zip line. It is easy to find as it has a giant set of scales outside!

Price?

The prices range acording to how many pattys you want in your burger. From $8 for a single, to $22 for a whopping 8 pattys!

Located just off the strip, this hidden gem is the best-kept secret in Las Vegas!

Undoubtedly, the most memorable part of your evening will be when Gordy, the adorable 4’11” accordion player makes his way through the restaurant filling the air with splendid melodies. Or perhaps, viewing the sprawling collection of miniatures scattered throughout the restaurant (probably the largest collection in the world)! This wildly unusual, eclectic, and eccentric restaurant is easily one of the best places to eat in Las Vegas!

Greenberg’s Deli

Specialising in sandwiches, the words deep-fill don’t do these towering stacks any justice. They have completely disregarded any “normal” sandwich ratio and the result is something special.

Each sandwich is served with a pickle – which is easily brushed to the side!

Where can I find it?

You can find Greenberg’s Deli in the “Greenwich Village” area within New York New York, on the strip.

Price

For approximately $10-13 you can get your hands on one of these beauties!

JJ’s Boulangerie

Despite being a “boulangerie” (bakery), this place is home to some pretty fine pizza.

This convenient restaurant/cafe is dine-in or takeaway, so no matter how much of a hurry you are in, they will cater to you.

The best thing about JJ’s Boulangerie is that it is open 24/7 making it the perfect destination after hitting the Vegas strip hard!

Giordano’s

Giordano’s Chicago style pizza is unlike any other pizza you will ever taste. This loaded beast is a cheese lover’s heaven. At over an inch in-depth, this pizza closely resembles a pie!

Where can I find it?

Found in the Grand Bazaar shops outside Ballys, Giordano’s is located in the heart of the Vegas strip.

Price

The Giordano’s menu has much more than just the delicious deep-dish pizza, however, for the purpose of this post I am only taking them into consideration. The price of one of these bad boys is from $18-35.
