i'm going to be in las vegas for about 5 days and would like to venture off the strip for some good local food. the good stuff that tourists don't know about but locals flock to. I'm talking about cheap eats, barbeque, steak, late night discounts, brunches, etc. thanks.

Other options include Rosemary's (for a solid neighbourhood restaurant) and Lotus of Siam (for Thai). If you go to Rosemary's, you can pick up a $100 gift cert from Costco for $80. Also, your best bet there is having their prix fixe lunch for $25. A pretty good brunch can be had @ Red Rock (dinner, $20).
The NCSS moved out of that location, they're now inside a local bar on the NE corner of DI & Arville called Moon Doggie's. They seem to have expanded their menu since they moved. To evolnomis: if you like to go out to breakfast it's hard to beat The Omelette House. There's one just east of Charleston & Rancho, which you can get to in about ten mins. from the Strip, depending on where you're staying. There's also a location inside The Plaza on Fremont if you happen to be downtown. Right across the street fom The Plaza inside the Golden Gate is a Dupar's Diner location, which is actually an LA-area transplant, but it's been quite popular since it opened.
I am a once a year visitor to Las Vegas, and will definitely agree with Lotus of Siam as a Vegas gem. I also never miss Ping Pang Pong or a few games of bowling upstairs in the Gold Coast. PPP is the real deal, and although its in a casino this place could be the hit of any Chinatown in any city in the US. Don't miss it. -Prizat
