   Las Vegas is home to many five-star restaurants. However, the price tag for such a meal is a hefty one. What we do here is guide the locals and tourists to the best deals that are available.

   Take, for instance, the Westward Ho, where five cents will buy you a cup of coffee. If you spend 55 cents; you will get coffee and a doughnut. These are available from 7:30 a.m.-11:00 p.m. at Nickel Nick’s Java Shop.

   Want more bargains? How about the world’s largest hot dog? The Westward Ho offers a ¾ pound hotdog with all the trimmings for only 99 cents.

   You really need to see this, because the length of it will stretch from one shoulder to the other, so be sure to bring a camera so you can show your friends back home.

   At Arizona Charlie’s East and West, you can enjoy seven different breakfast specials for only 77 cents. This offer is good Monday through Friday midnight to 7:00 a.m.

   The Suncoast has three breakfast specials for 99 cents from midnight until 9:00 a.m. or if you really feel like splurging, for $1.95 in Café Siena you can get steak and eggs.

   Ellis Island’s graveyard steak and eggs special is offered from 11:00 p.m.-11:00 a.m. which includes an 8 oz. New York steak, eggs, potatoes and toast for $1.95. Ellis Island also offers a 10 oz. steak dinner which comes complete with soup or salad, choice of potato, vegetable and a roll and butter, all for only $4.95 and is served 24 hours a day. However, you will have to ask for this one from your server because it is not on the menu.

   If you happen to be downtown, be sure to check out the Las Vegas Club. Specials in the world famous Dugout restaurant include a super graveyard special New York steak and eggs for $2.95 served from 11:00 p.m.-6:00 a.m. The Dugout also has a 2-for-1 special on Wednesdays, which includes a big plate of crab legs with a potato for $7.95 and for the same price on Thursdays, a prime rib dinner. These are from 3:00-11:00 p.m.
