Las Vegas restaraunts on a budget

Does anyone know of good restaraunts in Las Vegas that are worth going to, but not too expensive? I have read all about the best restaraunts, but the all are very expensive.

Carson Street Cafe at the Golden Nugget is good - reasonably priced - and open 24 hours a day.

There are lots of the chain restaurants in Vegas - Applebees, Sweet Tomatoes, Olive Garden, etc ...

There's a cafe/type restaurant in the Hard Rock Cafe, I believe it is called "Mr. Lucky's"'s not on their menu, (we were there last summer) but they have a steak dinner with shrimp (salad, baked potato, garlic bread included) that is excellent! It's something like only $4.95. I found out about it through one of the Las Vegas online sites. It really was fantasic, we ended up eating there twice. We also love Claim Jumper, and although we didn't eat at the one in LV, I know they have one there. Also, there is a buffet (not on the strip) that we went to, that was wonderful. It was voted (if I remember right) best buffet by the locals in LV. They had everything you could imagine, and it was excellent. I just can't remember the name...perhaps someone else can. I think it would be easy to track down if you're interested, by doing a search on LV buffets.

The restaurant at The Hard Rock IS Mr. Lucky's, but the special above has been raised to $7.77, but still a great deal.

Take the monorail from Bally's to MGM, often they'll hand out a fun book which includes a 2 for 1 coupon to the MGM Buffet (not the best buffet on the strip, but well worth the 2 for 1 price).

The Orleans (not on the strip, near the MGM, Tropicana, Excalibur, NYNY corner) has a good, cheap, breakfast buffet. Two for one coupons often available.

Here's a link to "The Top 10 Values" (many of which are food related):

Generally speaking, if you want cheap(er) food, go Off-Strip or Downtown.

There are a few great spots in Vegas where, because the portions are so generous, you can share a salad, entree and dessert and not spend a fortune.
Cheesecake Factory in the Caesar's Forum Mall is very popular, but worth the wait. Grand Luxe Cafe in the Venetian is also very enjoyable. The California Pizza Kitchen in the Mirage has terrific salads too, and the Coffee Shoppe at the Mirage is also very good. Other good Coffee Shops include the Tropicana's and the Barbary Coast's and Bally's.

From the Barbary Coast, Center Strip, you can catch the shuttle bus to the Gold Coast or the Orleans Casinos, they both have terrific buffets at around $7 for lunch and $11 for dinner.

The Victorian Room at the Barbary Coast has excellent Chinese food-lunch was under $15. Also a $2.95 breakfast is served from midnight to 7OAM which is very good. Lots of stained glass in this attractive dining room. Very happy with our room there from which we could watch the Bellagio fountains.
