IN Vegas for only one lunch and dinner. 4 kids who are from NYC. Mom and dad love food, but not fancy food. Where should we eat with only 2 meals. Dinner will be early as seeing a 7pm show.

      It would help to know what show you are seeing, since where the show is may have a bearing on where you should eat (that is, if you are seeing a 7 pm show at the Wynn, it may not be sensible to eat at Mandalay Bay). Rao's is a good option; solid food and center strip location. In the Cosmopolitan, DOCG is more casual Italian, and also pretty good.
      Generally, I am not a fan of Japanese on the strip, because Vegas has such terrific Japanese food off the strip, at a much better price point.....

        I hesitate to mention a place I haven't tried, but since you mentioned Italian...have you ever wanted to go to Rao's in NYC, but despaired of getting a reservation? There's a large branch in Las Vegas; it opens for dinner at 5pm.

            Vegas really has only one thing you can't find as good or better in NYC, and that's a buffet. Its been my (admittedly limited) experience that kids don't want to go to a buffet but they're happy once they get there if it is diverse enough and good enough, particularly if you tell em they can devour the dessert area.

            If you want to go that route, Chowhound is overrun by buffet reviews or you can share where you're staying and where the show is and we can give specific recommendations on your route.

              I'd say definitely not a buffet. Trying to figure out what the best place to eat will be....

              Pretty open could be italian or japanese? Anything great, fun a bonus. Nothing stuffy. Good desserts a plus.
              Price range also open.

                What price range are you looking at? Any type of cuisine in particular?
