The Village Eateries at New York-New York. If you want a huge selection of cheapskate dining options, this is your stop. This hotel and casino has eleven restaurants with items ranging from pizza to burgers to hot dogs. This restaurant strip is designed to give you a Greenwich Village sidewalk dining feel. This one might be torture, though, when you find yourself ordering a single slice of pizza because you blew your money on slots. For $3.95 you can get six garlic knots at the New York Pizzeria or $4 chili cheese fries at America Restaurant. Entrees at most of the restaurants are $9 and up, and maybe you have enough for a $10 burger at Broadway Burger Bar. None of them are really cheap, but you’ll find something. The casino is located at 3790 Las Vegas Boulevard South, so you can walk there straight from the strip. The general info line is (800) 689-1797.
Sourdough Cafe. Do yourself a favor and get off the strip. Just off the Boulder Highway is an affordable diner where you can eat steak and eggs and a variety of other breakfast entrees, even omelets, for less than $4 plus tip. You can also find burgers and many more items, but stick with the cheap stuff. Some people even say that this greasy spoon has better food than Denny’s. It’s certainly cheaper. Before you’re tempted to spend a fortune, hurry down to 4575 Boulder Highway or call (702) 951-5800 for more info.
