Stations and Fiestas have given us great reduced buffet prices all summer long. Boulder Station continues for at least one more month. Feast Around the World lunch buffets remain at $4.99 during September and dinner buffets are just $6.99.

Palace Station’s dinner buffet is always a bargain with a fixed price at $6.99, and reports indicate that soon Sunset Station may be rolling out a new dinner buffet, priced around $8.99.

Speaking of Fiestas, Henderson has joined Fiesta Rancho in opening a new Garduño’s Mexican Restaurant and Cantina in the former location of the McKenzie River Pizza Company. The popular Mexican Restaurant has been named the "Best Mexican Restaurant" by readers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The restaurant also received honors for its mouthwatering burritos, seafood dishes and made-at-the-table guacamole. Garduño’s is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sundays, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Fajita Express, a lunch buffet, is offered between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Sunday Brunch is served from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Its indoor patio dining, as well as some of the best margaritas in Las Vegas, contributes to Garduño’s festive feel. The cantina boasts a tequila collection with over 65 vintage bottles on display and 200 different margaritas.

With Monday Night Football officially opening this week, there are always good cheap deals to be had. We’ll try to feature a couple places each week and let you decide where to play and watch every week throughout the season.

For openers, try Main Street Station’s Triple 7 Brew Pub. Monday Night Madness in the pub offers food and drink specials and drawings for prizes. Admission is free and it is open to the public. Games are shown on a big screen and 16 smaller TV’s scattered about the room.

Also downtown, you can check out the Plaza on Monday nights. Monday Night at the Plaza offers $1 beers and food specials during the games. Get a free hotdog with every $10 football wager. Games are shown on the showroom’s giant-screen TV. They also have double slot club points every Monday night from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Until next time, "Eat well, play well, stay well!"
