Vegas Restaurants for "The Boys"
 
Heading to Vegas for a reunion with old childhood friends in a few weeks. Should be seven or eight of us. I have never been there and am looking forward to eating. Lots. Just wondering if anybody has hany suggestions for places to try for a bunch of middle aged guys, who for the most part, I think are looking for causal dining, drinks, upbeat atmosphere, value, etc....

I think I need new glasses. I read the title as "Vegan Restaurants"

I've also never been to Vegas. There are a lot of famous chef restaurants there now. Probably top dollar though.

Have a great time there!

Bobby Flay's Mesa is great.

I've been there but not for many many years. Back then, if you were spending money in the casino the hotel would often comp drinks and meals. It was discretionary and I'm not sure how much of that still goes on.

Yeah. I have been looking around and there are so many to choose from my head is spinning. I don't mind spending a bit. At least once, or twice. It would be a shame to miss an opportunity when I am right there. But I can be more satisfied with a good meal at a great value. When you spend a pile of cash on a meal you expect it to be good. lol. Not sure of how the trip is going to go. Haven't seen a few of these guys for over 10 years. May be a civilized affair or it may be a clown show. Not sure I want to spend a pile of money on a nice meal to have a couple of boneheads wreck it. It's been known to happen over the years with this bunch....:lol:

You can get a lot of "value" at those crazy all-you-can-eat buffets if you target the pricey stuff and eat 10 pounds of crab legs and 9 pounds of shrimp cocktail!

There are 10 zillion restaurants in Vegas but value isn't something I associate with them.

Personally I'd make reservations at one or two places that comes recommended & that has a good reputation even if its $$$ and then wing the rest of the eating.

Where are you staying?

Rocklobster 12-31-2012 09:55 AM

Not sure where we will be staying. Plans are already made but I haven't asked yet. I am leaning towards a few good dinners and winging it the rest of the time like you suggested. I know it may be a bit of a challenge to come to an agreement when dealing with so many guys. Some guys are golfing, some will probably gamble, a few want to walk a lot. I figure if I do a bit of research I may be able to swing the food plans to suit my preference. It may be a bit of a challenge with all of the different plans, tastes, hangovers, etc. lol

A few of the guys are financially well off and unfortunately none of them are me.

Its been a few years since I have been to Vegas but the number 10 on this list, Cirrus Cirrus was good. When you were waiting in line you could see the aging room.
