We’ll begin this week with a few more choice breakfast specials that are sure to please the palate as well as the wallet. The Fiesta on Rancho has a steak and eggs breakfast for $2.49 served 24 hours a day. Ask for it in The Baja Beach Cafe.

All of The Station Casino’s, Palace, Boulder, Texas, Sunset and The Santa Fe, have a 99 cent breakfast special for all you late-nighters, that includes two eggs any style, choice of bacon or sausage plus hash browns and toast. It’s available at all The Cafe’s, served seven days a week from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. And for the hardy appetite, try their NY steak and eggs special with three eggs, hash browns and French toast, served the same times for a mere $2.99.

Not far from The Strip, you can try one more at Wild, Wild, West, a Stations owned casino on Tropicana near I-15. You can order anything on their special menu for half price if you chow down between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. Or if you hold off until real breakfast hours, from 6 a.m. until 11 a.m., you can get their special of two eggs, bacon or sausage, hash browns and toast for $1.99.

For an afternoon snack or evening dessert, head to The Silverton Hotel Casino out on Blue Diamond Road off of I-15. At The Deli they serve what they call their “Strawberry Tall Cake.” The name fits. It’s a giant strawberry shortcake complete with a glob of whipped cream. This is truly an “On The Cheap” special. It’s a buck, anytime day or night!

Also, if you visit Silverton on Wednesday, November 28th, (it’s the final Wednesday from a month-long promotion,) bring a canned food donation. They’ll give you $3 off the breakfast buffet, $4 off the lunch buffet, or $5 off the Prime Rib dinner buffet. You’ll be serving a good cause as well as serving yourself.

Proceeds from the canned food drive will benefit The Boys and Girls Club of Las Vegas. You must be over age 21 and a Player’s Club member, but that’s free to join if you’re not already a member. With your canned food item donation the cost of the buffets are $1.49 for breakfast, $2.49 for lunch or $4.99 for dinner. This cool deal becomes even a little better when find out that the all-you-can-eat version of the Strawberry Tall Cake, mentioned above, is included in the buffets!

Strip dwellers can find the only late night buffet on The Strip at The Boardwalk Casino, located next door to The Monte Carlo. They offer a Steak & Eggs Buffet nightly from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. for $5.99.

Locals generally take it for granted, but tourists are often surprised that beverages, cocktails, coffee and the like are served complimentary to gamblers. Consider it your first “casino comp,” if you will. As long as you’re playing at a machine or table, or wagering in the race and sports book, your drinks are “on the house.” (Be sure to tip your server, of course. A dollar a drink is common.) For non-gamblers, who may wish to imbibe, give The Regent in Summerlin a try. They serve up a giant 44 oz. Coors Light in a souvenir football glass for $3.50. On The Strip, try Slot’s of Fun, next door to Circus-Circus, where you can get domestic bottled beers for $1.25 or imports for $1.50. Molsen Ice and Miller light drafts are only 75 cents. They also have a 99 cent hot dog.

Or check out Casino Royale, a little further south, across from Caesars Palace, where Beck’s bottled beer is only a dollar.

We’ll close this week with a super dinner deal located not far off The Strip. If you enjoy tasty Prime Rib, “On The Cheap,” style, give The San Remo a shot. It’s just east of The Tropicana on the same side of the street. The Ristorante Dei Fiori, (coffee shop) serves a complete Prime Rib Dinner that includes rolls, salad, prime rib cooked to your liking, potato and vegetable for $4.95. Nothing fancy here, just some good eats at a great price. Enjoy anytime. This one’s available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Off peak times will get you a seat a little faster.

Next week we’ll look into some lunch deals. If you see something that looks like a bargain, e-mail me at: krauseinvegas@att.net We’ll check it out and include in future columns for all to enjoy.

Eat well, play well, stay well.
