Last night has left you with just the twenty that you hide in your sock for emergencies, a lost wallet, and a 4pm meet-up with your kind but annoyed Uber driver. When you need something for lunch in the meantime, but your friends refuse to lend you money for the seventh time, head to Brasa Roja, a Colombian restaurant just five minutes north of the Strip. At $4.95, the steak and chicken specials, both of which come with rice, beans, and salad, are the answer - and if you get an extra order to go, that driver might not be quite so angry.

Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips
The fish at Gordon Ramsay Fish and Chips in the Linq Hotel is great, but you’re really there for the chips which you can get covered in chorizo.
Naked City Pizza
Naked City Pizza has some of our favorite wings in the entire city - though you can also get pizza at this Southeast spot.
Viva Las Arepas
Viva Las Arepas is one of our favorite lunch places - head to this spot on the Strip for inexpensive Venezuelan arepas and empanadas.
