Food Courts on the Las Vegas Strip - The Best, Cheap Fast


Food courts are easily the best way to cut down on the cost of a vacation. You don't need every meal to be a production. Sometimes you just need a hot dog on a stick or a slice of greasy pizza. If you end up spending less than $10 on a meal you should be proud. While the food at food courts is not always the highest quality it still manages to do the trick.

In Las Vegas food courts range from greasy spoons to spots for some great finds for cheap dining. I personally will stop into the Venetian Food Court when ever I need a quick meal for less money. The conveninece of the Monte Carlo or the Flamingo food courts are perfect for families and the food court at Mandalay Bay is a huge draw for those attending conventions.

Looking for cheap food in Las Vegas?

There are two Food Courts at the Venetian and this ine is better with options such as: Café Santa Lucia - Coffee, pastries and light faire, San Gennarro - Burgers, Paninis, and Salad, Cocolini Casino - Assorted flavors of Gelato, Rialto Deli - Soups and Sandwiches, Pizzeria de Enzo - Soups, salads, and Italian cuisine. If there is a food court that I stop at regularly it is this one.
