The contemporary Japanese restaurant is the company’s first time on the West Coast and the brand’s eleventh location in its international collection.

10 Best Small Restaurants only Locals Know About


shushing-smiley.png (450×500)

Roma Deli

5755 Spring Mountain Rd.
(702) 871-5757

Easily the most authentic Italian food you can find outside of Italy... or at least in Vegas. It's considered a cornerstone in the community, and it's outstanding pasta dishes will impress even the most anal Italian enthusiasts.

Baguette Cafe

8359 W. Sunset Road  Suite 100
(702) 269-4781

There are very few things more french than fresh baked baguettes and croissants, and that's what you get here.


This gem is hidden in a shopping center close to IKEA.
It's run by two French brothers, and aside from their ridiculously good paninis and sandwiches, the quiche is a must-try.


Komex

4155 S. Buffalo Drive  Suite 103 & 104
(702) 778-7576

Korean-Mexican Fusion? Sounds impossible, right? Komex does this combo right. Our pick is the Bulgogi Nachos, but you're not going to go wrong with pretty much anything on the menu. And if you're a little less adventurous, don't worry. They offer Korean and Mexican dishes that aren't infused with... um... each other? 


Mr. Mamas

5693 S. Jones Blvd.  Suite 106
(702) 220-9224

An out-of-the-way breakfast/lunch spot with a huge menu, and following. Expect a line that will be well worth the wait, and food that will be off the hook.

Hamburger Hut

A Las Vegas Local's favorite. This family owned restaurant may be named after burgers, but it's well known for it's wings and chicken fingers as well.
Jaburritos


6090 S. Rainbow Blvd.
(702) 586-4433

Sushi + Burritos= My happy place.


Bagel Cafe

301 N. Buffalo Drive
(702) 255-3444

Because bagels aren't just for breakfast. Duh. Oh, and they don't just serve bagels.

This place has been around forever, and for good reason. You can taste the difference in the quality of their bagels, and homemade cream cheese.
A little taste of New York, in the heart of Vegas.


Steamie Weenie

1500 N. Green Valley Pkwy.  (Henderson)
(702) 333-1383

Why is this a favorite? The Hot Dogs? The tots? The selection of over 40 glass bottled soda? Maybe a little bit of everything.

This place serves classics like their Windy City Dog (Chicago Style, $5.89) or their Coney Style (Chili, mustard and onions, $5.89) but they also twist it up with stuff like their 9th Island Dog (Spam, pineapple relish and scallions, $6.29) and PBB & JJ (Bacon wrapped dog with peanut butter and jalepeno jelly, $6.29) 


Red Rice Take Out Restaurant

9400 S. Eastern Ave.   Suite 106-A
(702) 912-4826

If you're not too familiar with Guamanian food, here's your chance. (tip: If you like Hawaiian food and Filipino food, you'll dig this.) 

Find Chamorro dishes from Guam at the Red Rice. Dishes here are made from scratch using recipes handed down from one generation to the next.
Red rice is naturally the centerpiece to the dishes, but look for chicken and beef kelaguen, lumpia, shrimp patties, grilled eggplant with coconut milk and Spam musubi as well as barbecue chicken, pork ribs and beef with dipping sauces. It is a family owned joint, so make sure to check their Facebook or call ahead to make sure it's open.


Truffles N' Bacon

  1. Siverton buffet gets very crowded and I would advise you to get in line at approximately 10:45am in order to be seated at the time the buffet opens at 11:00am.

    If one gets there later, the restaurant fills and as a result, the waiting time to seated will take from 45 minutes to one hour.

    1. My waiting experience at Siverton is not very good...over 1 hour for lunch. I lost my appetite once I had a table.

  2. I have been using Restaurant.Com since arriving in LV and it's a fabulous site with wonderful discounts on excellent restaurants! The one thing I noticed was that it is important to read the "restrictions" so that you know exactly what you are doing. Thank you for the information on this and other bargain dining.
    While I'm commenting I would like to say THANK YOU for providing a site to residents in Sun City that is positive in every way. I left college years ago and certainly do not need negative comments, particularly name pointing, at residents that i have met at various venues. Shamefully, this happens here and as a relatively new resident, I find it inexcusable. Praise in public and admonish in private would be the professional way to handle things.
    Good luck with this new web site, it is interesting and enjoyable. L.Wong

  3. For those who don't want to drive to Twain for Great New York Deli. There is "THE Best" New Youk Deli on the corner of Green Valley Parkway and Sunset Called Weiss's Deli. It has been there for over 30 years and by far has the best Corned Beef,Chicken Matzo Ball soup, and Chopped Liver in Las Vegas by far. Growing up with parents who ran Delis in California..I know of what I speak. Enjoy :)

  4. We went to the Rio for the Carnival Buffet. The choices are impressive and the QUALITY is excellent. This is the best bargain for a FINE experience we have seen lately. Advise everyone to try it.

    We are NOT Buffet fans, but this is truly special.

  5. 400 points - that is about $ 1.20 in point value. Think it should say 4000.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Nope, it's 400. To get the 400 points, I believe you have to push $400 though the machines to obtain them. Not sure of the actual amount, but once you get the 400 points, you get the freebie lunch. You keep the points.

    1. 400 points means that you have to push a total of $ 400 thru the machine (makes no difference where $ are coming from - i.e. your pocket or some winning spins).
      Your REAL cost depends on your luck while playing that day and if luck is not in your side that day:
      Your food could cost you several times more than paying cash.

  7. Not at the Silverton in April. No gambing is required, nor must points be used to get the 50% specials on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday during the month.

    Green Valley requires points, even on Senior Days. The M Requires points to get discounts as well.

    ...and Vic...well, you get a whopping 15% off of the entre, and I stress ENTREE only, if you're a resident, eat at a specific time, and on top of that, get a reduced meal portion.

    ...and here's one, no one realizes.

    Did you know that somehow, within the Vic's lease agreement, THE DISCOUNT ALSO APPLIES TO RMI EMPLOYEES....but not your guests ????
