Any info on the Meal Ticket plan for Las Vegas? 3 meals for $44

I am making a 10 day trip next month. I came across this on a travel website. Are these places any good?

Would love some feedback from the vegas pros. Looking for you Dave Feldman. You have never steered me wrong.


Sorry the American Airlines price is $55/day.

How is Pampas?

  1. Skip it. The only ones I'd be remotely interested in are Spice Market Buffet and Hofbrauhaus. The former is one of the better buffets in town, the latter a decent but unremarkable touristy German restaurant. Everything else isn't worth it, there are many better choices that we've discussed to death on the board.

    1. I've never heard of this organization so I have no personal experience but I'm afraid I'd pass on it. I checked out the NY and New Orleans restaurants and they are worse than the options in Las Vegas. Agree with JK on the only decent options listed in LV. I think you can do better. Note that from the description it looks like you are confined to a single menu at each place, which makes the deal even scarier.

      I think it's been a long time since anyone has posted about Pampas here, but most reports have not been good.

        Thanks I will skip it. Will go to LOS and a bunch of Vietnamese off the strip.

          Are you a fan of ramen, phantom? You might want to try Monta in the same strip mall as Raku, just north of the main Chinatown area.

            I will put it on my must list. I have 9 days with 2 consecutive weekend conventions.
            I have recently had my first pho, just north of Philadelphia. I would love suggestions for pho in Vegas. I will be staying in town but will have a car. All spicy, not overly salty suggestions are welcome.

              I like Pho Saigon 8 on Spring Mountain Road. There's a couple of other Pho places near there as it's kind of a community. Be warned that the service here can be considered a bit brusque by western standards. Just don't take it personally, take your time perusing the menu and order when ready. I like their hot and cold coffees too. See the link for the menu and location. I haven't been to their new location.

                Thanks, It will be on my list of musts.

                  The Vietnamese woman who did our pedicures recommended Pho Saigon 8 so we checked it out. I thought the pho was quite good: nicely balanced broth (just a hint of star anise, which I prefer), etc. Certainly worth a further look.

                    Just got back. Had pho at Pho Kim Long and Pho Saigon 8. Liked the floaties better a t Pho kim Long. The broth at Pho Saigon 8 was delicious. With 2 conventions to attend and visiting friends who retired to Henderson my Asian adventures were severely cramped. I did manage 2 lunch buffets at LOS. The buffet is not stellar but, the soups were. Different soups, 2 selections each day. Will attach pho-tos after I unload my camera. Santana was fantastic at the Hard Rock on Friday night.

                    Saigon 8 on Desert Inn was outstanding and the service was extremely attentive and hospitable. Food is fantastic and a great value. We tried fresh spring rolls, two different kinds of noodle soup (the basic and legume with side of raw steak and beef stock) and Banh Xeo which is a crispy crepe filled with sliced pork, shrimp and sauteed bean sprouts and served with lettuce, mint, cilantro, fresh bean sprouts and a sweet, vinegary sauce. It's huge, enough for 4 to share. No need to get large bowls of soup, the small are more than adequate, even for big eaters like me. They serve beer and very limited selections of wine. It is difficult for two people to spend more than $40.

                    1. re: globalevent

                      Thanks for reporting on the new location. Good to hear about the service. Depending on where I stay, the Desert Inn location may be easier for that morning after meal.

              I'd probably pass on this offer as well. As for Pampas, I've been there 3 or 4 times and felt it was pretty good. No, not gourmet quality fantastic, but for the price the rodizio was enjoyable and the friend's I've dined there with all felt the same. However I don't get to the Miracle Mile shops very often any more, and it's been a year or two since I've eaten there so it's possible things have gone downhill since then.

            3. The all day meal pass seems to be the trend. Stay at a Harrah's or MGM property and for about the same price $44/day you have AYCE access to the buffets at all their properties not just breakfast, lunch and dinner.
