Las Vegas visit from the UK August 2011 - Thoughts on my list please

gourmetgorro | Aug 3, 201101:08 AM     32

Hi all,

We're visiting Vegas (staying at the Aria) for a week in the middle of August and I'd really appreciate any thoughts on the list of eateries we're planning on visiting. We're only planning on eating at a few high end restaurants and rather want to sample some authentic US food + a few other fun places. Please let me know what you think of my list, whether there are any obvious omissions or substitutions to make and any dishes you'd particularly recommend. If I eat at all of these places I think I'll need to book two seats for my return flight! Thanks

Shrimp Cocktail
-Golden Gate, Fremont Street

-ISLA - Treasure Island, 3300 Las Vegas Blvd. South
-LINDO MICHOACAN - 2655 East Desert Inn Road
Is it worth the taxi off strip to Lindo Michoacan or should I just stick with TI??

-Famous Daves
-Memphis Championship Barbecue
- BB Kings, Mirage Hotel
Again is it worth the taxi off strip or should I stick with the Mirage? If so which is best?

Ice Cream
-Luv It Frozen Custard
- Coldstone Creamery

-Metro Pizza - 4178 Koval Lane

Soul Food
-Lola's Las Vegas - 241 W. Charleston Blvd

Any thoughts on which is best?
