Steak and eggs is always a prime choice for locals as well as tourists. But how about "Chicken and Waffles?" Try the Lady Luck downtown for the late-night specials in the 3rd Street Grill. They offer a chicken and waffle plate from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. for $3.99. Incidentally, they have steak and eggs too ”” same hours, for a buck more.

Also downtown, Binion’s Horseshoe has a new Sunday night prime rib special served in the coffee shop from 5 p.m. to 5 a.m. The complete dinner is $4.95 per person.

If you plan to spend the Memorial Day holiday downtown, the El Cortez will once again be offering one of their traditional holiday buffets in Careful Kitty’s Coffee Shop. The special Monday buffet (May 26) will be a barbecue for $9.95 per person, served from noon to 9 p.m. If you’re a player, it’s also a triple point’s day!

The Silver Nugget (formerly Mahoney’s Silver Nugget) in North Las Vegas serves a giant 20-ounce Porterhouse steak special daily in the coffee shop. For $7.99, the meal comes with side dishes, served from 11 a.m. until closing.

We don’t often find too many sweet deals on the Strip, but a report from a friend says this one may be worth checking out. Paris’ Le Café is serving a late-night New York Steak with a salad, choice of potato, dinner rolls and a hot vegetable for $7.95. The graveyard special is served from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Further down the Strip, the Aztec Inn, next door to the Stratosphere, is serving Italian sausage sandwiches anytime for 99-cents! Can’t beat the price!

One more Strip deal turns up at the Riviera. They are offering a late night Steak Buffet from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. nightly. Cost is $8.50 per person, and there is also a limited take out menu. The only other late-night buffet on the Strip is at the Holiday Inn Boardwalk Casino.
