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.
Where we've featured it
More spots in DowntownSee more
Part history lesson, part bar, Atomic Liquors on Fremont St. is Vegas’ oldest freestanding bar and great for a few draft beers.
Pizza Rock downtown has more options for styles of pizza than we knew existed - bring a group or come for the late-night Happy Hour.
More Chinese spotsSee more
You may have to walk through the smokey Eureka Casino to get it, but the burger at Fat Choy is one of our favorites in the city.
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.
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.
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.
Tacos El Gordo
Tacos El Gordo on the Strip is open until 2am daily, so head here for a second dinner, or a midday taco.
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.
