Soho Sushi Bowlrrito

Located just down the street from its sister restaurant, Soho Japanese Restaurant, this sushi burrito spot is one of many in the area. You can build your own bowl or choose one of their signature bowls. I opted for the Waikiki ($8.50) made with ahi tuna, red onion, green onion, furikake, seaweed and sesame soy.… Continue reading Soho Sushi Bowlrrito

Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken

With a little fine tuning this new spot from the Bromberg brothers could be excellent. The first time I stopped by the tenders were soggy and oily. But on subsequent visits the wings have been crispy and the Blue Bird sandwich has become one of my favorite chicken sandwiches around. I like the seasoning on… Continue reading Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken

Cletus Chicken Shack

Located in Universal Studios, Cletus’ Chicken Shack will give you a glimpse into life in Springfield. And, apparently Springfield is pricey. Like the rest of Universal, you’ll spend a pretty penny on any meal. With no kid-sized meals the youngin’s have to pay full price for meals they’ll eat a fraction of. A chicken and… Continue reading Cletus Chicken Shack

Braddah’s Island Style

***Update: business closed*** As other reviewers have mentioned on other sites, this is the Hawaiian version of Chipotle. No need to re-invent the wheel and create a different concept for ordering when it’s effective. After eating here a couple times, I have to say that I prefer this place to Chipotle. I love the island… Continue reading Braddah’s Island Style

The Lunch Box

What better way to wash down the food from Yayo Taco (a couple doors down) than with a waffle ice cream sandwich from The Lunch Box? It’s as good as everyone says it is. The made to order waffle is light, delicate and crunchy. A perfect contrast to the deliciously smooth and creamy chocolate malt… Continue reading The Lunch Box

Elevation Burger

On my first visit I thought the burgers were under seasoned. A second visit confirmed it. A standard Elevation burger is two patties, two slices of cheese. They also have single patty burgers and cheeseburgers available, along with two types of veggie burgers. Their main selling point that differentiates them from the competition is their… Continue reading Elevation Burger

The Hat

This is where arteries go do die. Or at least to get clogged. Ridiculously large portions, unhealthy food… take a look around and you’d think they were casting for “The Biggest Loser”. But, I’m not judging. I’m Merely making observations. The food is actually really good — as far as fast, casual food goes. The… Continue reading The Hat

Pica Pica Maize Kitchen

This little shop is located in the Oxbow Public Market — an upscale food court, of sorts. I love the concept. Arepas aren’t exactly popular with the general public… at least not where I’m from. My son got a grilled cheese maize’wich — just like a regular grilled cheese but with sweet corn bread instead… Continue reading Pica Pica Maize Kitchen

BFG Chicken Strips

Located in a strip mall on the corner of Rainbow and Charleston, this little spot is a good option if you’re craving chicken strips and don’t want to spend much. Think Raising Cane’s but with healthier options. And, like it’s fast food counterpart, BFG has a limited menu, but what I tried was executed very… Continue reading BFG Chicken Strips

360 Gourmet Burrito

Located in McCarran airport, this place was one of the few dining options that looked appetizing. They’ve got all sorts of burrito combinations consisting of different ingredients and sauces (cajun, Thai, teriyaki, curry, mediterranean). You can also get burrito bowls, salads, wraps, quesadillas, and sandwiches. The steak and prawns burrito I ordered was decent. There… Continue reading 360 Gourmet Burrito

Subway

The food here tastes like all the other Subways I’ve been to but the service is painfully slow. If I’m the only customer there it shouldn’t take 15 minutes to make a cold sub. This place takes the “fast” out of “fast food.” 2 Stars 10140 W Tropicana Avenue Las Vegas, NV 89147 (702) 222-3007

Los Tacos

I stopped in for lunch and the place was filled with white, car-salesman-looking guys. That should tell you something right there. The food itself isn’t that bad (at least some of it), but it’s pricey. $3.00 for a taco. If you want sour cream or guacamole that’s going to cost you extra. I ordered one… Continue reading Los Tacos

Dairy Queen

— Originally posted on Yelp on 7/5/10 — It’s difficult to screw up a blizzard, but this location did. Lots of vanilla soft-serve with a miniscule amount of mix-ins don’t make for a good blizzard. Especially when I ordered a strawberry cheesequake. If I only wanted vanilla I would have ordered that. Major disappointment. 2… Continue reading Dairy Queen

Tacos Mexico

— Originally posted on Yelp on 7/2/10 — Another quick lunch led me to this place. I headed straight to the drive-thru and ordered their lunch special: 4 tacos, a drink, and fries for $4.99. They get points for being quick (only waited about 5 minutes) and friendly. Unfortunately, that’s about the best thing about… Continue reading Tacos Mexico

Schlotzsky’s Deli

— Originally posted on Yelp on 4/11/10 — Despite Schlotzsky’s being a chain it’s got the feel of a hole-in-the-wall deli. But maybe that has more to do with the run down building and not-always-clean interior. Regardless, I’ve been a fan for the past few years. The thing that elevates their sandwiches from ‘solid’ to… Continue reading Schlotzsky’s Deli
