Las Vegas is a very unique city, and the very best meal deals for locals are the same. Every casino in town loves to give food away. All you have to do is join a casino’s “rewards clubs” and you will begin to accumulate points that can be redeemed in the form of meals. But don’t worry, if chasing “lady luck” isn’t your thing, here are a few other great meal deals offered by locally owned restaurants. – Diane Quinn

Sedona Lounge

9580 West Flamingo Road
Las Vegas, NV 89147
(702) 320-4700

If creative, upscale American cuisine makes you drool, don’t miss lunch at Sedona Lounge. This is the perfect place for a business lunch because the décor is hip and your expense account won’t take a big hit. The Sedona’s “Prime Lunch Specials” feature six different meals, including tasty entrées like roasted chicken, mahi mahi fish tacos and the chef’s weekly special. Included is a salad or soup option to start, and all you’ll pay is a reasonable $12 (excluding tax and tip). Enjoy the outdoor patio complete with heat lamps and a fire pit in winter or cooling misters during warmer weather. Hours: seven days a week, 11 a.m. to 4 a.m.

Mezzo Bistro Italiano

4275 North Rancho Drive,
No. 130
Las Vegas, NV 89130
(702) 944-8880

It’s no secret that Las Vegas is loaded with some very good Italian restaurants. But if you are looking for one of the best meal deals for locals, look no further than Mezzo Bistro. Already well reviewed for its quality food offered at a reasonable price, this casual and friendly bistro serves up fire-roasted pizza, southern Italian favorites and fine meat dishes, including chef specials. The best deal is available on Sunday through Tuesday from 4 to 6 p.m. Ask for the “Dining for Two” special. It’s a prix-fix menu with three courses: a shared appetizer, two different entrées and dessert for $39 (plus tax and tip). Hours: Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Sunday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Steiner’s A Nevada Style Pub

8168 Las Vegas Boulevard South
Las Vegas, NV 89123
(702) 214-6700

8410 West Cheyenne Avenue
Las Vegas, NV 89129
(702) 395-8777

1750 North Buffalo Drive
Suite 115
Las Vegas, NV 89128
(702) 304-8084

While many people enjoy Steiner’s for its traditional Las Vegas pub atmosphere and daily specials, it’s the $3.99 breakfast that is one of the best meal deals for locals. Get your day started with a hearty breakfast of two eggs, two pieces of bacon, sausage or ham, hash browns and toast. Known for its amusingly named Nevada menu items, ask for the “Summerlin Breakfast” or the “Silverado” breakfast (at the Las Vegas Boulevard location). Bring a paper or watch the news or sports on one of the many well positioned televisions. Hours: open 24 hours daily.

    Who in their right mind thinks $12.00 for LUNCH is “reasonable” ?

    That’s ~ 1 1/5 hours wages at minimum wage – if you eat there 4 times a week, that’s 6 hours of wages – $48.00, +$3.89 in taxes, + $9.60 tips = $61.49 for 4 meals.

    That’s NOT a ‘best meal deal’ for LUNCH for locals – for gambling visitors maybe, but NOT for locals – not in this working man’s opinion.

    A LOT of meals can be had in the $5-7.00 range in town – with most of the $7.00 meals include fries or salad with soda (many delivered to your work place) – even Subway has several footlong nutritious subs for $5.00 – footlong, lot of food on a footlong.

    Now that is a good price for a LUNCH meal – not $12.00.

      Toney is right. Both the $12.00 lunch and the $19.50 Italian dinner (per person) are not “reasonable” prices. How much are these restaurants “paying” for this free advertisements, or are the owners friends of the writer?

  • Carl Coglianese

    C’mon that’s not a deal…I use my ” Entertainment” book (it cost $25.00 a year but worth it) coupons in the newspaper and eat at the casinos.

  • Allison Hunt

    Exactly who does this article serve? This writer needs to get a grip on reality. Hey buddy, I couldn’t afford to blow $39 for two, plus tax, plus tip…. WHEN I WAS WORKING!

    • Josh Mondle

      To the writer of the article:
      I do agree with others that have written here, that the restaurants mention maybe not be what locals are looking for as the “best meal deal” as you have claimed. Maybe great for dates but definitely not for daily eatings are these places practical.

      To those that are complaining about the article:
      I haven’t tried these places yet but agreed that the prices maybe a little steep, but value is price vs quality. If these places serve Michelin star quality food for the prices offered yes it is a great deal.

      If you want cheap then go eat a dollar menu from Mcdonald’s. If you like fries and soda with your meal then probably these restaurant isn’t for you.

    Although I would very much like to establish a supportive—rather than an intimidating—atmosphere for offering public comment, there are several obstacles that make it difficult to feed the starving, house the homeless, cure the sick, and still find wonder and awe in the sunrise and the moonlight. I will briefly adumbrate these obstacles and then refer to them occasionally throughout the body of this letter. Before I say anything else, I’d like to state the following disclaimer for CBS Las Vegas’s benefit: Warning! This letter may contain sarcasm. Okay, now that that’s taken care of, let me posit the hypothesis that when I was younger I wanted to plant markers that define the limits of what is unambitious and what is not. I still want to do that, but now I realize that I don’t believe that you and I are morally inferior to the most counterproductive storytellers I’ve ever seen. So when CBS Las Vegas says that that’s what I believe, I see how little it understands my position.

    Some people don’t seem to mind that CBS Las Vegas likes to subvert existing lines of power and information. What an infantile world we live in! I don’t know if it’s stupidity, ignorance, or naïveté that makes CBS Las Vegas warrant that diabolic, yellow-bellied perjurers have dramatically lower incidences of cancer, heart attacks, heart disease, and many other illnesses than the rest of us. What I do know, however, is that just thinking about its inhumane excuses is giving me a two-Tylenol headache. If you doubt this, just ask around.

    I understand that CBS Las Vegas should stop playing verbal games and tell us what it really means, but I’m convinced that CBS Las Vegas will hinder economic growth and job creation as soon as our backs are turned. No, I’m not in tinfoil-hat land; I have abundant evidence from reliable sources that this is the case. For instance, I challenge CBS Las Vegas to point out any text in this letter that proposes that the peak of fashion is to promote the total destruction of individuality in favor of an all-powerful group. It isn’t there. There’s neither a hint nor a suggestion of such a thing. Now that you’ve reached the end of this letter, let me leave you with the key take-away message: CBS Las Vegas has gotten a bit too palsy-walsy with splenetic simpletons.
