Nowadays, seeing chicken and waffles on a menu is as common as having an ad pop up on your browser for that air fryer you put in your cart 45 seconds ago. But Gritz Cafe is a reminder of how good this dish can be - though their menu covers a lot more ground, with things like po’boys, grits, and hot-link omelets. When you need to feel like you’re not in Vegas for an hour or two, head here for the large portions, kind service, and food you usually find on a different coast.

Suggested by our writers
This 24 hour spot in The Cosmopolitan works just as well for breakfast beignets as it does for a reasonably-priced lunch, or middle of the night meal.
The line at Eggslut in the Cosmopolitan can get long, but it’s worth it for the egg sandwiches you’ll find at the end.
Old Soul downtown is a comfortable restaurant serving twists on American classics and whiskey flights.
