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 complete steak dinner, available 24 hours a day at Ellis Island for $7.99, is back in the #1 spot after a month at #2 due to the opening of the Lucky Dragon. We tried it again last month and quality was as high as it’s always been for this best of Las Vegas’ many steak dinner specials. 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. Breakfast - Klondike Sunset - Daily - $1.49
The $1.49 bacon or sausage & eggs breakfast at Klondike Sunset is 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.
5. Draft Beer - Flamingo Las Vegas - Daily - 5¢
Against the odds, the Flamingo’s 5¢ beer (#7) made it through its first month and continues to be served daily from 5 to 6 pm at the 5 O’Clock Somewhere Bar in the Margaritaville Casino area. This deal packs ’em in for an hour, so head over a little early and pay retail ($6) for the first one to stake out your position, then pop another five for just a quarter more.
6. Mac King - Harrah's - Tues.-Sat. - $14.98
It looks like the deal for the Mac King Comedy Magic Show at Harrah’s has changed slightly. Rather than having to buy two tickets to get the discount, we’re told that you can buy single tickets for $14.98 apiece. Go to the players club and ask for the Mac King drink-ticket special, or just use the vouchers in the Member Rewards Book when you get a subscription to the Las Vegas Advisor.
7. Hot Dog - South Point - Daily - $1.25
With a price increase on the wieners at competitor Gold Coast, the $1.25 hot dogs at South Point become an even better deal. The dogs are sold from a cart in the sports book from 10 am until 5 pm. They come with onions, kraut, and relish at no additional charge and there’s a three-per-person limit.
8. Breakfasts/Burger - Arizona Charlie's - both locations - 24 hours - $4.99
Arizona Charlie’s is back on the list with its trio of specials in the Sourdough Cafés at both Decatur and Boulder. Get steak & eggs, ham & eggs, or a hamburger & fries for $4.99 when you show your club card. All three deals are offered 24/7, except mid.-6 am Mon.-Fri. at Boulder.
Also returning is the lunch comp at Crown & Anchor. Play $20 through a machine and get anything on the menu comped. Hours are 8 am-2:30 pm at the east location (Tropicana/Maryland Pkwy.) and 11 am-3 pm at the west (Spring Mtn./Decatur). If you miss lunch, the offer is extended for appetizers until 6 pm on the east and 7 pm on the west.
Of almost a dozen restaurants serving $1 oysters at some time during the month, Andiron Steak & Sea in Downtown Summerlin is the best of them. The fresh-shucked oysters are dished daily from 5 to 7 pm in the bar and until closing on Tuesdays. More details on Las Vegas’ other dollar-oyster options in the Las Vegas Advisor.
