Fremont Street Restaurants?
We’ll be traveling to Vegas (1st time!!!) in a couple of weeks.
Old Las Vegas is on our “must do” list. Any restaurant recommendations?
We always tend to lean towards local fare vs. tourist traps.
Try the Triple George. It's a good choice in the downtown area and is not a tourist trap by any stretch of the imagination. If you want a dinner splurge, go to Andre's behind the federal courthouse...but the Triple George is a more reasonable choice and is also open for lunch.
Right off of the Fremont Experience onto Fremont Street is a little whole in the wall I stumbled across and have been back everytime i am in Las Vegas. It is a greek/burgers/subs type place like something you would find on the east coast with the really wide array of menu items, but I have found it to be some of the best Fried Chicken anywhere. It's called Kabob Korner. Totally worth checking out. Its a 'no star' diner type place with no Las Vegas flare, but the Chicken is all I need to lure me off of casino row.
it's kinda chilly in vegas right now - a nice place to enjoy a "cuban" soup - mamacita's - it's a hole in the wall across the street from el cortez
triple george - all good ( it's a rough copy of tadich grill in san francisco )
andre's - definitely more $$$ ...but hey...old vegas...how many restaurants are on a street named after the chef/owner ? ( technically on the corner )
of course hugo's cellar - another old vegas beaut
california casino has a decent hawaiian place and their coffee shop serves a popular oxtail soup ( very, very popular with the locals )
happy eating !
Second Street Grill at the Fremont is one of the most under-rated places in Las Vegas, largely because the name brings entirely the wrong connotation - actually a Pacific Rim place that specializes in seafood. A hidden gem. And Lappert's at the California for an ice cream cone afterwards.
