This new blog series is all about our guides’ personal favorites in food and local activities. First up – best restaurants on the Strip or Downtown!

Ryan – Owner

Triple George Grill downtown. They have a fun speakeasy atmosphere with reasonably priced steaks.

Address: 201 N. 3rd Street, Las Vegas, NV 89101

Liz – Office Manager

Pizza Rock in DTLV. I just love a simple pepperoni pizza and their classic pepperoni pizza is the best! They also have all different styles of pizza, like Italian, Chicago and New York. Love the calamari there too. On the strip, Herringbone at the Aria Hotel and Casino is amazing as well. They grill their branzino to perfection and they have the most outstanding customer service!

At Vegenation in downtown Vegas the Buffalo Cauliflower wings are absolutely delicious. I love the atmosphere of the restaurant, and the diverse menu!

Address: 616 Carson Ave #120, Las Vegas, NV 89101

Seth – Guide

Changes often: I absolutely love the variety!

Dani – Guide

VegeNation, I am a vegetarian and love going here when we go Downtown for the night. The food is amazing, and the drinks are fun and different.

Burton – Assistant Guide

I am a bargain hunter and a pizza lover so my vote goes to Pin-Up Pizza at Planet Hollywood. For $9.50 you can get a huge slice of pizza, a soda, and a garlic knot. For $11.50 you can sub the soda for a beer. Honorable mention for dessert is Milk Bar in the Cosmopolitan. You can grab a unique ice cream treat and then go watch the fountains at Bellagio.

Edgar – Assistant Guide

Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. because it reminds me of Forrest Gump and I love shrimp.

Address: 3717 S. Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
