When it comes to dining on the Strip with kids, it's probably not the first place to come to mind. But, this summertime deal may change that for those with tykes in tow.
The Hard Rock Cafe on The Strip is offering complimentary meals for kiddos now through August 31. Menu options range from cheeseburgers and fries to BBQ drumsticks, and more.

Break out the flame shirts, hair mousse, stunner shades and flip flops. Guy Fieri is opening his first Vegas restaurant on the center Strip at The Quad. The perfect spot for a guy who's known for his affinity for
The as-yet-unnamed eatery (oooo... add your suggestions below!) will occupy 7,000 square feet of space right off the entrance to The Quad. We think it will reside behind these glass panels, just a few steps away from Carnaval Court.

VegasChatter fan Andy S. tipped us off over the weekend to the pub's reopening at the Riviera after an April closure. But, it wasn't until we went to QV's Facebook page that we discovered that their return was news to them, too.
Ask someone where to go for the best steak on the Strip and get immediate answers. Burgers, same. Best restaurant for romance, no problem. But, inquire as to where to find the best Mexican fare on The Strip and folks often pause. Ponder. And then, usually, qualify.
VegasChatter fan Lara W. really wants to know where to go for the best south of the border flavor, though, and asked us for the answer:
This tower of juicy sliders, oozing with cheese, is The Strip's newest dare. An eating challenge that seems innocuous enough. After all, sliders are mini, right? We mean, who hasn't gobbled up a couple of White Castle's straight? A few more shouldn't be a problem as long as stretchy pants and fasting are part of the pre-game, eh?
And, then you learn there are 24 of them. The time you have to devour them? The same numerical value. 24 sliders. 24 minutes. That's when you cue up the only inspirational song that matters and head to Citizens Kitchen at Mandalay Bay to claim your victory as well as your free meal. Fail to complete the challenge and you'll need to hand over $40 while trying to hold back the
vom tears. But, you got this. Right? That's what we thought.

Eating / Dining / Off Strip / Rollin Smoke Barbeque / Restaurants / VegasChatter Reviews / → All Tags
Not a lot of people come to Vegas in search of BBQ. Las Vegas has been on a fine dining kick for years and, today, is probably most known for mainstream celebrity chefs. Ho-hum. No disrespect to Joel Robuchon or Gordon Ramsay, but they're nothing new. If you meander off the Strip to Highland Avenue, you'll run into a scene that looks something like this: Cantor Gaming > strip club > auto body shop > strip club > tile store > strip club > random business > strip club > mini strip mall with three smokers in the parking lot. Say, whaaaaaaaa?
Yep, that's where you'll find Rollin Smoke Barbeque which is always cookin'. The scent is alluring. The smell coming from the smokers onto the street may be the only reason to drive in this area with the windows down on your car. However, anyone could set wood on fire. It's another thing to create delicious food over it. Like most off Strip dining, Rollin Smoke is fairly anonymous. The down home restaurant isn't large with seating for about 50 people.

You don’t need a hunky waiter to have a fabulous brunch experience at The Cosmopolitan’s Overlook Grill, but it doesn’t hurt. (Ask for Carlos!) And, don’t worry, dudes. The restaurant overlooks plenty of the bikini babes frolicking around the adjacent rooftop pools.
But enough about the eye candy. Overlook’s Bubbles and Brunch menu is divine. And, it isn’t just a meal. It’s an event. Arrive hungry and with one-and-a-half to two hours to spare to enjoy all five dishes and the array of desserts. And, at $40 per person, the multiple dish, prixe fixe (with choice of one bloody Mary, champagne or mimosa) is a great value.

A year ago we heard that Morton Group, founders of N9NE Steakhouse and Ghostbar, were planning on opening a Mexican restaurant near the corner of Fremont and 6th. We weren’t sure what to expect, but we welcomed the idea. Nestled right behind Commonwealth and just up the street from the coming soon Shipping Container Park, La Comida is a stylish Mexican restaurant with traditional and urban flair where a neon pink monkey skeleton serves as mascot.
As soon as this writer arrived for a recent media preview, it was apparent the Mortons were going to honor downtown with this place. Nothing quite says Las Vegas like
mandatory neon. A great mariachi band and Tony Hsieh’s flame-throwing preying mantis also welcomed guests.

After stepping up its entertainment game with the additions of Rock of Ages, Human Nature and limited engagements like Faith and Tim after the loss of Blue Man Group and Jersey Boys, Venetian/Palazzo is turning its focus (back) to jazzing up its dining.
Earlier this week, we learned that Cake Boss Buddy V was bringing, umm, Buddy V's to the resorts next year, replacing the shuttered First. And, last night, Chef Daniel Boulud announced he would open his second DBGB Kitchen and Bar outpost at the resorts late this year. Replacing... well, we don't know. Execs wouldn't say.

Get ready to see reality TV crews around Venetian.
TLC's Cake Boss and Jersey boy (but, not that kind) Buddy Valastro will open his first restaurant at the resort this fall. And, that's first restaurant as in ever. Buddy is teaming up with the folks who brought us VegasChatter's runner-up for best restaurant of 2012, Honey Salt, for a culinary endeavor aptly named, Buddy V's.

Bradley Ogden left Caesars Palace to make room for more Gordon Ramsay, but luckily for Las Vegas he isn't staying away for long. His return becomes official Friday, May 31 when his latest venture Hops & Harvest opens in the former Bottles and Burgers location out in the 'burbs at Tivoli Village.

You can count on Las Vegas to bring out your wild child, but these restaurants will take your trip from adventurous to amorous. So, bust out those credit cards (these places aren’t cheap!) and put on a collared shirt (how romantic can you be in a tank top?) and get ready to impress your special someone with some candlelight and a bit of bubbly. Here are our five favorite restaurants to visit when we're in the mood for love:
Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris
A restaurant in a fake Eiffel Tower in the middle of the Las Vegas Strip could’ve been ridiculously cheesy, but this place gets everything right. From personal service (ask for Lyle!) and the awesome views of the Bellagio Fountains to the velvety red decor, it’s like Valentine’s Day every day inside the Eiffel Tower Restaurant.
