There are a couple very touristy reasons to go to Downtown Vegas. There’s a light show on the world’s largest video screen and a Slotzilla zipline that you should save for when you’re not three drinks in. But the best reason is to eat at Flock and Fowl. Their Hainanese chicken rice will be one of the best things you’ll eat here and since it’s under $14, you’ll still have enough money to try out the “part thrill ride, part escape room, part maze, and part interactive video game” Walking Dead Survival experience.

More spots in DowntownSee more
Gritz Cafe probably belongs more in the South than in downtown Las Vegas, but you’ll be grateful for their all-day Southern breakfast menu.
Makers & Finders Coffee
You could come to Makers & Finders, a coffee shop in the Arts District for a quick cup, but you should sit and order from their Central American menu.
Eat is a Southern breakfast and lunch spot downtown with a space and food that are equally comforting.

Shang Artisan Noodle
Getting a plate of hand-twirled noodles at Shang Artisan Noodle in Spring Valley is one of the best ways to spend $10 in Vegas.
Mott 32 in the Venetian works just as well for a blowout Chinese dinner as it does for a reasonably-priced meal of dim sum at Happy Hour.
Red 8 Asian Bistro
This beautiful, very red Chinese restaurant in The Wynn is actually casual and comfortable so it works before a show or late night.
Suggested by our writers
Lotus of Siam
Lotus of Siam feels like a big party, but one you can show up to in jeans - come with a big group and order plenty of their Thai specialties.
Mon Ami Gabi
Mon Ami Gabi, a French spot in the Paris, is great anytime of day, but make sure you sit outside - they have the best view of the Bellagio Fountains.
Mama Bird Southern Kitchen
Mama Bird is a quick drive from the Strip, but it still feels like a bit of an escape from the craziness with its kind staff and classic Southern food
