With everything that has happened in 2020, I understand that like so many of us, the shutdowns have hurt many businesses. So I want to make sure to patronize my favorite local spots.
One of those places is Herbs & Rye located at 3713 W. Sahara Ave. I have to admit I was worried when I saw the closed for remodeling sign up a few months ago as too often I have seen places never reopen. I am happy to report that Herbs & Rye is back, fresh off the remodel.
I’ve been a big fan of this place ever since I found it several years ago. Herbs & Rye has one of the best, if not the best Happy Hours in Las Vegas. What makes their Happy Hour so good is that all of their steaks are 50% off during Happy Hour and the steaks are steakhouse quality.
Happy Hour use to be from 5-8 p.m. and then again from midnight to 3 a.m. But since the reopening, Happy Hour is now from 5 p.m. to 3 a.m. daily. Herbs & Rye is closed on Sundays.
I have yet to have a bad steak here and trust me, I have been here too many times to count. My go-to steaks are the New York Strip ($24 during Happy Hour) and the Rib-Eye at $34 (during Happy Hour). When I say these steaks are steakhouse quality, I know what I’m speaking about as I grew up around a meat packing plant as my father owned it.
The steaks here are flavorful and have good marbling. My steak was cooked to perfection. Herbs & Rye has a good selection of side dishes with the Truffle Mac & Cheese being one of the best side dishes in Las Vegas. I’ve tried several of the other side dishes, but I keep going back to the Truffle Mac & Cheese.
Since the reopening there has been one change at Herbs & Rye and that is the side dishes are no longer included with the steak. They made this move to match their sister property Cleaver that also has the 50% off steak Happy Hour but didn’t include a side. The side dishes are $9 and are easily big enough to share.
The steaks may be the headliners, but Herbs & Rye makes some of the finest old school cocktails in Las Vegas. Prior to bars being shut down the bar area at Herbs & Rye was always packed with people enjoying these cocktails in the classic speakeasy setting.
Herbs & Rye is a hidden gem off the Las Vegas strip where you can have a great meal at half the price of most Las Vegas Steakhouses on the strip. The waiters and waitresses are all super friendly and very attentive to all of your needs. I give Herbs & Rye 3.75 forks.
