Las Vegas - youth cheer squad - group dining suggestions

Hi! I need to find a good restaurant - inexpensive, clean, good food, kid friendly, and accept large group reservations. We have about 40 people who will be eating together. I'd like to know your suggestions. I think we need food that accomodates varied tastes, as well. I'm looking for something that is $15ish or less for adults, and even less expensive for kids. This would be for a Saturday evening.


Oh, and the less smoke the better.

  1. Resturants in Nevada are smoke free. You are going to have a hard time finding anywhere on the Strip in your price range. Your best bet might be to go to the Orleans Casino for their buffet. You might want to call ahead to see if you can make a reservation. The buffet is good and is $12.99 per person. It is only about a mile off the Strip.

    1. I see large youth sporting groups and even large wedding receptions eating all the time at the Main Street Casino Garden Court buffet. Located in Downtown Las Vegas. They have several long tables that would accomodate your whole party of 40.
      Price is around $12 per person + tax and tip and there's Mexican, Asian and American offerings. I believe the kid price break is at 3 years old.
      No smoking allowed in restaurants and hotel lobbies in Las Vegas.

      1. The Buca di Beppo off the strip accomodated our girls softball team and their parents, and the staff maintained a good sense of humor given how rowdy the girls were.

        1. It's an unfortunate truism that in Las Vegas, all family activities (bowling, arcade, movies) must occur in a casino and all family food must be found in a bar.

          Roadrunner Saloon
          Timbers Bar & Grill
          Steiner's Pub
          ... are three chains with locations all over town that serve good food.

          You might also consider that some casinos have good coffee shops:
          Coronado Café at the Southpoint Casino
          Jerry's Famous Coffee Shop at Jerry's Nugget
          Mr Lucky's at The Hard Rock Hotel
          The Original Pancake House inside Green Valley Ranch, Alliente Station or their free standing location on Fort Apache

          Good steaks, burgers and BBQ can be had at Lone Star Steakhouse

          Sad to say that eating in Las Vegas is not cheap. Eating with a large group makes it even more challenging. An affordable buffet at one of the casinos may be your best choice.
