SF hound going to be in Vegas soon - suggestions for places to eat?

I'm going to try to do some hiking/sightseeing in Vegas & looking for places to eat. Cheap eats under $25pp, any kind of foods, places with some steamed/stir fried vegetables would be a help for hubby, chicken, fish, tofu, etc. Meats ok. We will have a rental, staying at Caesar's Palace.

Going to these places:

Chinatown - any recommendations?
Hoover Dam
Red Rock Canyon
Valley of Fire
Atomic Testing Museum
Lk Mead NRA

  1. Don't know when you're going but Luv-It Frozen Custard is closed for Christmas vacation. I had to check because it's one of my go-to places every trip.

      thanks for the help. Yes, going Xmas vacation - sad it's closed! Any other favorites I shouldn't miss? I do have a huge sweet tooth.

      Another to do:
      Ethel M chocolates

      1. re: hhc

        At the California Casino (downtown) they have an Ethel M store on the mezzanine and right next door is Lappert's (super premium ice cream from Hawaii) ice cream parlor. Right across from Lappert's is Aloha Specialties a casual restaurant(you order at the cashier-they cook and deliver your food) specializing in Hawaiian food with some decent stir fry dishes...Hawaiin plate kind of lunches all less than $10. Free validated parking at the California Casino.

        How do I know...I'll be spending Xmas there.

        Aloha Specialties Restaurant
        12 E Ogden Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89101

          If you're heading to Lake Mead, stop by Ethel M's Henderson factory on the way back!


          Not only can you see the factory and grab some chocolate goodness...


          But their cactus garden is also lit up for the holidays!
