Inexpensive Steak on the Strip

I will be in Vegas this weekend and my boyfriend would like to have a good steak. I would like to take him somewhere nice but we are on a budget (in Vegas for a family thing not really a grand weekend). We are staying at the Sahara and would like to go somewhere that is on the strip, preferably somewhere we can get to on the monorail. Don't want to spend money on a cab and definately don't want to walk in the cold! We will be drinking, but aren't big wine drinkers. Any suggestions? He really isn't that hard to please.

    So we ended up going with THE Steakhouse on Saturday night. We called ahead and confirmed that the dress was casual but I was glad that we dressed up a little nicer! It was really a beautiful restaurant. Very low-lighting with no casino noise. We had a very romantic booth in the corner. I am a huge bread eater, so I was really happy with the bread basket! Loved the pretzel bread and wheat bread. My boyfriend ordered the filet and it was cooked to perfection. He said that it was one of the best he had ever eated and the mashed potatoes were perfectly seasoned. I'm not really a big red meat eater so I opted for the chicken breasts. They were dry and disappointing but came with a perfectly cooked potatoe and asparagus spears. Each dinner came with a nonchalant salad.

    As for drinks, we each ordered two Jack and Cokes. The service was amazing! Our waiter was very attentive and had a great personality. He even kept us updated on the scores of the football game. Total bill came out to $99 before tip. This was a great value to us because we got the ambience of a nice steakhouse and a good filet without the high price tag. We didn't order desert because we needed to save room for more drinks!

        Thanks for the suggestions. We were hoping to get out of there for around $100; $150 if it was something really memorable. It sounds like Circus Circus is a good deal.

          I was just going to suggest Circus Circus steakhouse. I love it and the value is good. Probably about 40 a person without the alcohol. And the steaks come with salads and sides so not everything is alacarte as in other ritzy steakhouses. The place is very old school vegas and the only drawback is that you have to walk through Circus Circus. One tip stick to steak and prime rib it has always been excellent...my friend had the salmon once and said it was horrible,

            This is more a question on the same topic, but I've often been told the Steakhouse at Circus Circus is excellent, and much more reasonably priced than others. I have not dined there, so I can't vouch for it. Has anyone eaten there recently, and is this true?

            Thanks.

              what is your price range including tax, tip, drinks, desert, appetizers? Inexpensive means different things to different people.
