This week, I went to the Black & Blue Diner, located at 315 N. Decatur Blvd. The diner has been open for takeout since November, but just this week Chef Vic “Vegas” Moea opened the dining room .
It is his second Las Vegas restaurant. His other restaurant, Sinful Subs. is located right by my house and both my wife Lori and I are big fans. So naturally, I was excited to try his new venture.

Vic teamed up with Rose Tummarello to bring a menu of all-day breakfast, lunch, dinner, vegan dishes, and desserts. I went for breakfast and the choices were endless. One of their signature items is their New York Classic Breakfast Sandwich which has 2 fried eggs, choice of meat, American Cheese on a grilled Kaiser Roll. They also have a Country Fried NY Steak where they pound a steak, bread it and fry it. This dish comes with two eggs, house-made country gravy and potatoes.
This was a very tempting option, but I decided to go with the Steak ‘n’ Eggs which are seared sirloin tips with onions and mushrooms. It also comes with two eggs, choice of potatoes and toast. I went with their NY potatoes and was very happy as it has onions and peppers grilled with the potatoes. The meal was excellent, and you get a lot of food for $15.99.
The menu offers breakfast all day and has pancakes, waffles, omelets. and of course, keeping with their Southern Kitchen theme, Chicken and Waffles. One of the specialty waffles is the Birthday Cake waffle with frosting and sprinkles.
The menu has a big selection of burgers and sandwiches for lunch and dinner. There are also items you don’t see every day like Liver and Onions. I was never a fan of the dish, but I can tell you seeing it on the menu brought back memories as my dad loved the dish and my mom made it for him often.
Chef Vic has brought a lot of the dishes that he misses from his days in New York. He even serves Chock Full O Nuts Coffee.
Black & Blue offers typical diner deserts like Root Beer Floats, Ice Cream Sundaes and a Fried Apple Pie served warm with ice cream, caramel sauce and whipped cream. The staff was friendly and attentive. I give Black & Blue Diner a rating of 3.5 Forks.
