My husband and I are going to see Penn & Teller Wednesday night. We have to pick up our tickets at the box office, and since we'll have to schlep over there from the Strip, I thought we might as well have dinner at the Rio or nearby beforehand. But I haven't exactly seen any glowing reviews of places nearby.
I saw that Buzio's was recommended by a few on this board, but after doing my research, I wasn't too impressed. I've read horror stories about the seafood buffet, and, at this point, am leaning toward All-American Bar & Grill, though I'm not too excited about that option either.
Is it even worth getting dinner at Rio, or are we better off going to Rio and getting the tickets, going back to the Strip for dinner and then coming back to Rio for the show?
Cost: Under $100 would be nice.
We're both foodies. I'll eat almost anything.
Restrictions: My husband isn't a big fan of noodles or Latin food.
+ Staying at the Bellagio, Wednesday through Saturday.
+ Thursday night dinner will be at Julian Serrano.
+ During the day Friday we're renting a car and going to the Hoover Dam; we'll have lunch out there.
+ We're going to hit up the Bellagio buffet at lunch at some point.
Any other suggestions for dinner or reasonable lunch options would also always be appreciated, but this Rio dilemma is the most pressing question right now. Thanks for your help, guys!!
