Las Vegas downtown & late-night dining?

The Dairy Queen | Feb 5, 200802:03 PM

Esteemed 'hounds:

We’ll be in Las Vegas for a long weekend. We’ve got most of our meals planned (based on some tips y’all gave me LAST TIME we went to Vegas but that we didn't have time for, alas), but I still have a couple of gaps in my meal planning.

LATE NIGHT EATS? Our flight doesn’t arrive until after midnight, so, we’ll need a late night dining option. Downtown would be great (because that’s where we’re staying the first night). Otherwise, just easy to get to from the airport (we’ll have a car, but we’ll be tired) with minimal parking hassle, would be fine.

Here are some places I found when I searched on this topic—are these still recommended for late night?

~Golden Nugget Café—Ribeye & eggs $8.99 (downtown)
~Binions (downtown)
~Firefly (on Paradise N. of Flamingo)
~Noodle Asia (in the Venetian)
~Café Ba Ba Reeba (in Fashion Show Mall, across from the Wynn)
~(By the way, is Ellis Island open past midnight and do they offer their amazing BBQ and house-made root beer that I keep hearing about late?).

(Here’s a post I found on late night eats http://www.chowhound.com/topics/387902 ).

BREAKFAST DOWNTOWN? Since we’re staying downtown one night, I’m looking for good breakfasts downtown. We love great chow, of course, but, we also love kitschy/tacky/fun atmosphere and rock-bottom-bargains (e.g Ellis Island), as long as the chow is AT LEAST good. Any places come to mind? (If not, we have a car and can head elsewhere, but we’d rather just walk to breakfast if we could for a relaxed, leisurely morning).

I really only found one place downtown for breakfast when I searched on this topic—is it still recommended for breakfast?

Binions $4.99 ham & eggs

I see that the Grotto (in the Golden Nugget), Hugo’s Cellar (in the Four Queens), Andre’s, and the Triple George Grill often get recommendation when people are looking to dine downtown, but do these places offer good breakfasts (or, breakfasts at all)?

Thank you!
