Tactical Question re Dining in Vegas

sasha1 | Mar 14, 2013 10:59 AM

Family trip coming up with 2 kids - 7 and 11 (today - happy birthday!). Both are adventurous eaters but randomly picky. Neither eats large quantities of food at a time, almost ever. Actually, neither do my husband or I. He and I are also extremely light drinkers.

Buffet or not? I don't want to pay alot and feel like I could've dined elsewhere, better, for less $. This is a relative question rather than my budget is $x question. I read a blurb from another post that kids are charged same price, or may bring in outside food. If none of us are big big eaters, is it worth it just for the quality, variety, high end items, and experience? If we buffet, is there a best meal to go as btwn bfast lunch and dinner (in terms of bang for buck and wait times being not so terrible)?

What about the celebrity chef restaurant outposts? Any good deals out there in places that won't sneer at me when I bring my kids along?

Finally, the regular nonbuffet, non celebrity, regular old restaurants... tips for affordable good tasting meals? I know this is super broad - we are staying in the Stratosphere and walking up and down the strip. No car. Any cuisine will do, but we aren't big fans of greasy spoon diners.

Appreciate all the help! I will do some research on my own too.

ps - not food question. Someone told me that the nightly pirate show outside Treasure Island might not be appropriate for my 7 y.o. Thoughts?
