Las Vegas Top Ten ValuesSince 1983 the Las Vegas Advisor has provided hundreds of thousands of Las Vegas visitors with a monthly list of the best bargains in town.
About the Top Ten
1. Steak Dinner - Ellis Island - 24 hours - $7.99
The Ellis Island complete steak dinner moves back into the top spot on the Top Ten after making way for the opening of Klondike Sunset last month. Served 24/7 in the Café, the filet-cut sirloin comes with soup or salad, choice of potato, and green beans. To get the $7.99 price you have to print out two coupons from an EI kiosk, the second after playing at least $5 in any slot machine with your club card inserted.
2. Shrimp Cocktail - Skyline - 24 hours - $1.49
The shrimp cocktail at Skyline is served 24/7 at the main bar and comes in a cocktail glass, with no filler lettuce or celery, and topped with a tangy sauce.
3. Beer - Best Western Plus Casino Royale - 24 hours - $1
The Casino Royale bar has completed its build-out and some drink prices have been raised, but the Michelob deal survives. You can still get a Michelob or Michelob Ultra in the bottle around the clock for just a buck.
4. Oysters - Venetian - Daily - $1
The Venetian isn’t the only place in town dealing $1 oysters, but its center-Strip location is what makes the difference and keeps it on the list. The deal is offered in the bar/lounge area of db Brasserie, daily from 5 to 6 pm.
5. $500 Rebate - Plaza - Daily - Free
The Plaza rebate is a reimbursement of up to $500 in gambling losses, paid in free-play via two installments on the first and second day after playing. You have to be a new club member so you can do it only once, but this is easily the best new-member perk in Vegas. It’s the same good program that’s been running for more than a year now, but it’s been improved by an adjustment in the rules governing which machines are eligible to play the rebate.
6. Hot Dog - South Point - Daily - $1.25
The hot dogs served from a cart in the South Point sports book are available daily from 10 am until they close down the cart around 5 pm. Load up the Vienna all-beef franks with kraut, onions, and relish for no extra charge.
7. Breakfast - Klondike Sunset - Daily - $1.49
Even with it’s ceremonial new-casino ranking now over, the new Klondike Sunset stays on the list with its excellent $1.49 breakfast. It’s the lowest-priced eggs-and-meat breakfast in town, available every day from 7 to 11 am. Plus there are four more good specials served during the same hours.
8. Mac King - Harrah's - Tues.–Sat. - $29.46 for two
For the Mac King deal you now have to buy two tickets to use the discount offer, but it’s only $29.46 ($14.73 per person) to see one of the best shows in town and the deal comes with two drinks. The discount tickets are available for the asking from the Total Rewards booth.
9. Breakfast/Burger - Arizona Charlie's - both locations - 24 hours - $4.99
Get steak & eggs, ham & eggs, or a hamburger & fries for $4.99 when you show your club card in the Sourdough Cafés at Arizona Charlie’s Decatur and Boulder, served 24 hours, except 6 am-mid. Mon.-Fri. at Boulder.
Of all the good football deals revealed throughout this issue, we still like the free “Pick the Pros” contest best, given its convenience and upside potential. Swipe your B Connected card on a kiosk at Gold Coast, Suncoast, Orleans, Sam’s Town, Fremont, California, or Main Street Station for a shot at $30,000 every week. Must submit picks before the kick-off of the week’s first Sunday game.
