Where To Eat in Las Vegas For Cheap

Eating cheaply in Las Vegas is not complicated even though it is one of the most extravagant destinations to see in the United States. But don’t worry, like everywhere else, you’ll find restaurants that are good value for money. But if you want to eat cheaply in Las Vegas, you’ll have to start getting used to the American diet: hamburgers, fries and so on.

But once a year it doesn’t hurt, especially in Las Vegas. Although the phrase “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” is not always true. In this case, the calories won’t stay in Vegas!

The Inn-N-Out is one of our favorite fast foods in all of America. Did you know there’s a secret menu? Of course… if we know it and millions of others, it’s not very secret (you can see it here). The fries are great and the burgers are not far behind. The prices are quite low for the quality of the food: burgers are $2.4-3.85, fries are $1.85 and drinks (you can fill up as many times as you want) are $1.5.

Two other burger joints that we highly recommend and that you can find on the streets of Las Vegas are Shake Shack and Five Guys.

Grimaldi’s Pizzeria

Grimaldi’s pizzas are an institution, and if you want to experience lunch or dinner in Venice without leaving Las Vegas, it’s a great option (one of the restaurants is in “The Venetian” casino). There are 3 sizes of pizza, if you want one for yourself the 12” one is worth and costs about 12$, to which you have to add the toppings you want (2-4$ extra). If there are 2 of you, you can order the large pizza ($19) and share it.

Viva Las Arepas

Arepas of all kinds and flavors for about $5.5 on the Las Vegas Strip… not bad, huh? They make the arepas right away and they’re very good. They also sell empanadas and desserts (prices $2.5-3). By the way, if you don’t know what arepas are, they are flour tortillas from Colombia and Venezuela that are filled with different ingredients and are finger lickin’.

1616 S Las Vegas Blvd / 1140 S Rainbow Blvd


If you like waffles, you’re going to love this place! Here you can try sweet and savoury waffles. They cost $12 ($4 extra for chips and drinks) and are very filling! We recommend the Holy Chicken that has maple syrup glazed chicken, smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, sriracha sauce and fried egg. You’ll probably roll out of the restaurant, but they’ll take it away from you!

Tacos El Gordo

If you’re in the mood for some authentic Mexican tacos, this chiringuito prepares the best in Las Vegas. The prices are also very cheap: they only cost about $2 and there is a lot of variety. It’s usually a very busy place so if you want to avoid queues you should avoid going to it during rush hour.

Ellis Island BBQ

If you are looking for barbecue meat, this restaurant offers great value for money: you can get a plate of bbq ribs for about $17, hamburgers for $10 and beer for $2.5! Yasss. It’s at the Ellis Island Casino.

Monta Ramen

With the warmth of Las Vegas and the chunky stuff, maybe a plate of ramen isn’t what you’re looking for… Or yes: it’s colourful, isn’t it? In this case we recommend you to visit this Japanese restaurant where for only $6-7 you can eat a piece of ramen bowl.

There is also a bowl of rice with meat (gyudon) or fried rice for less than $6. If you prefer to have a snack, there are gyozas for $5. The only bad thing: it’s a bit far from the Strip, but if you have a car or don’t care about the distance… it’s a good place!

5030 Spring Mountain Rd

Boulevard Food Court

And finally we recommend this place that will agree with everyone: it is a food court where there are stands of all kinds of food (Indian, Mexican, Asian, Italian, American …). Come on you will find what you want in that moment for sure. Average price per person: 10$.
