Dining Bargains and Deals




So your dreams of winning Megabucks didn’t quite pan out. You gave your last $20 bill to a dancer named Amber. Or maybe you just want to save your cash for those front row tickets to "Jersey Boys." If you're on a budget, one of the best ways to be thrifty is to find cheap eats. Vegas is known for its gourmet restaurants, but we cut our teeth on bargain bites. This is the mecca of bargain shrimp cocktails and 24-hour coffee shops.

Whether you need a breakfast for under $5 or a drink for 99 cents, we've got you covered. There's prime rib for $7.95 and entire meals for less than the price of that venti mocha frappuccino drink you always get. Check out our list of Vegas dining deals and find out how you can eat on the cheap.

This is Vegas, where everything - even luck - changes faster than a roll of the dice and that includes the prices of these bargains.
