The Golden Steer has been a staple of Las Vegas for many decades, yet I have eluded this timeless masterpiece without much intrigue. If it wasn’t for a recent post by my friend who had alas entered this marvelous steakhouse and wrote about it, I perhaps would be without a review of my own. The Golden Steer on Sahara about a block down from the corner of Sahara and Las Vegas Blvd is home to Las Vegas’s biggest baked potato, an assortment of steaks, seafood, salads, and pasta. It is a throw back to the days when waiters wore bow ties and the dark ambiance will have you feeling like you’re dining in the 1960’s. I took my father here for his 76th birthday, and although the Steer had an hour wait, we entertained ourselves with video poker and complimentary drinks at the bar. For dinner we had the porterhouse, and the filet mignon and lobster tail combination that came with a salad, and side choice being the gargantuan sized baked potato. You can find the Golden Steer at 308 W Sahara Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89102.
The Italian American Club Ristorante Italiano on East Sahara in Las Vegas is a long standing tradition for Vegas locals and tourists. It has been around since 1960 and serves traditional Italian American favorites like lasagna, spaghetti and meatballs, and a variety of steaks, seafood, and pasta dishes. I had the chicken parmigiana, meatballs, stuffed banana peppers, and a few glasses of red wine. Everything I ate and drank was delicious. I would recommend the Italian American Club if you are in the mood for large portions and a speak easy atmosphere when dining. You can find the Club at 2333 E Sahara Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89104.
Wow, I can’t believe I have a new favorite Thai place in Las Vegas. Chuchote Thai Bistro and Desserts is the perfect blend of price and quality Thai food not far off the strip. The ice green tea drink was amazing and I ordered the yellow curry with chicken that was on Chuchote’s lunch special. There were about 10 options under $8 that came with rice, salad, and an egg roll. That to me is a killer lunch deal in Vegas and I had to doggy bag half of my meal. You can find Chuchote at 4105 W Sahara Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89102. Foodie tip, check in on Yelp for a free dessert.
