I'm usually on the NJ board, but I will be in Vegas in December for a few days for my little sister's wedding. We will be staying on the strip, most likely at the flamingo.
Looking for more of the low cost, basic good food places (if those exist) near the strip. Preferably able to walk to (long shot I know) or take a taxi. I can rent a car no problem, but would have to plan that out ahead of time to maximize amount of places I can hit up, and also to coincide to return rental car before we start drinking on a given day.
I'm definitely going to go to in-and-out burger and Del-taco as we don't have those in NJ. and I remember them as quite good especially on the way to "The Gun Store". And last time I was in Vegas, I remember enjoying several $1.99 foot long hot dogs from Casino Royale, so I hope that gives you an idea of where I'm wiling to go :-D
We tried pizza from Wynn one day we were really hungry and it was fine, but we are from NJ so pizza is hard to impress us with pizza, and we also tried a restaurant in the Palazzo which is basically the same thing as the Cheesecake Factory (Forget the name).. it was fine.. but we have two Cheesecake factories close to us, so for this trip, I'm looking for something more unique, but not the super fancy $100+ stuff.
We tried Serendipity at Ceasers for ice cream and it was fine, but probably not worth the wait in our opinion.
The Brazilian BBQ at Planet Hollywood was OK too.. but I didn't write home about it.
I didn't try Emeriel's Sports Bar Place, and I can't remember why not now that I think about it...
I just saw an episode of Diner's Drive-In's and Dives where Guy Fierri Featured a really good looking taco place near University of Las Vegas so I'm thinking there must be more places like that around?
Thanks in Advance
