It's been a while since my last post. I have a poor sick kitty and have been a little down lately. So, to take my mind off of things, I'm going to tell you about a few awesome restaurants you must try if you are ever in Las Vegas.
I visited Las Vegas (for the millionth time) with my husband and mom near the end of February 2010. We had a wonderful time and our vacation seemed too short.
Of course, Las Vegas is known for it's gambling, night life, and shows. Also, Las Vegas can be a mecca for the gormand. Here are a few picks of my must-eat restaurants of Las Vegas.
BILLY BOB'S STEAK HOUSE AND SALOON - SAM'S TOWN
We stayed at Sam's Town Hotel and Gambling Hall for the first time. It's a nice place to stay where the food is great and the people are friendly. We only paid $22 a night for a nice room overlooking their atrium.
I had been craving a nice juicy steak and read about Billy Bob's online. The reviews were great and I was not disappointed. The restaurant has a very manly western theme and our waiter was prompt and attentive. We started with a shrimp cocktail which came with a fantastic remoulade sauce. Bread was brought to the table hot right out of the oven.
I ordered a 12 ounce rib eye, medium rare. It was perfection. Very tender and juicy. I ordered mine with a loaded sweet potato which was enormous. The meal also comes with a salad. My mom had the same thing but had a regular potato with her steak. George had beef tips over something. I honestly can't remember what he had because I was so focused on my meal, I didn't notice what he was eating. Overall, we were impressed with Billy Bob's Steak House.
