1. Durango Taco Shop
With multiple locations all over Las Vegas, Durango Taco Shop is not only one of the best cheap eats in the city, but it is also one of the most convenient places to get to.
The Durango Taco Shop has roots in Jalisco, Mexico, so every visit here is guaranteed some kind of authentic Mexican food flare.
Plus, the chain only opened its doors in 2017 and already boasts five different locations throughout the area. If that is not a sign that the food here is not only cheap but delicious, then what is?
But don’t mistake this chain for your typical fast-food restaurant. Sure, the restaurants are open from morning until night and offer a fine variety of cheap combo deals, but it also maintains personal touches like their daily specials.
On Tuesdays, get three for five al pastor tacos, get a dollar off crunchy tacos on Wednesdays, and get an exclusive taste of Baja fish tacos every Friday.
To be honest, this restaurant is so affordable that you don’t have to rely on a special to score a cheap meal, but it definitely helps.
And if you haven’t tried a queso birria taco yet, this is the place to indulge!
2. Kokoro Ramen
Finding a good ramen spot in any city is like hitting the jackpot, but in Las Vegas where restaurants like this are far and few between, Kokoro Ramen opened up and blessed the neighborhood with a new local favorite.
Cities have always been known for being some of the best places to taste a diverse variety of cultural food, so it might come as a shock that Las Vegas was seriously lacking any good places to get a bowl of ramen.
But when Kokoro Ramen opened up on Flamingo Road, all of that changed. Locals and tourists alike began filling up every seat in the restaurant for the flavor alone. The cheap prices are considered just an added bonus.
And what makes this place even better is its fine variety of meal choices. Have your pick between classic ramen, signature ramen dishes, and cold ramen with prices as low as eight dollars a bowl.
You may spend a little extra on signature ramen, but when you are getting additions like black garlic oil, kikurage mushrooms, and spicy pork, it is hard to complain.
Not to mention the fact that this place offers non-ramen items like chashu don, kimchi fried rice, shrimp shumai, deep-fried brussels sprouts, and so much more.
3. Coronado Cafe
Las Vegas is home to plenty of unusual establishments and the Coronado Cafe is no exception. Where else can you find a coffee shop that is open twenty-four hours a day and serves Chinese food?
Located within the South Point Casino, where time doesn’t exist, the Coronado Cafe has made a name for itself as being the place to grab an affordable bite to eat at any hour of the day.
Besides, after spending a day at the casino, you’ll probably need it.
And since there is no telling what time you will find yourself in this cozy restaurant, you should probably know that breakfast runs until 11 AM but you can get as many free refills on coffee as you’d like regardless of the time.
Once eleven hits, the menu changes to a variety of American and Chinese fare. Have your pick of tasty dishes like a Porterhouse Steak for only fifteen dollars or a shrimp tempura platter for just fourteen dollars.
But if you are really looking to get the most bang for your buck, wait until after midnight when the restaurant serves a handful of late-night specials with the mac price tag only being five dollars.
With endless options for fusion restaurants in Las Vegas, choosing a place for dinner can be a difficult decision so why not go with the place that is both affordable and delicious? This is where KoMex comes in.
It is not every day that you get to visit a restaurant that is known for its cheap eats while also supplying food that is so delicious that it has landed itself on famous food channels like BuzzFeed and Las Vegas Weekly.
This humble restaurant didn’t even realize what they had to offer when they first started out as a hot food section in a Mexican Meat Market.
The family members who ran the shop would come here on their lunch break to make themselves unthought-of dishes that combined the Mexican meats with Korean cooking styles.
Before long, local diners got wind of what was going on behind the scenes and wanted to get a taste for it themselves.
The Mexican-Korean fusion was an immediate hit, and soon this little hot food section was seeing enough foot traffic to warrant opening up a full-size restaurant.
Now you can enjoy a variety of dishes that combine the authenticity of two delicious styles of food at KoMex. Plus, with prices that rarely exceed fifteen dollars, you don’t have to break the bank to enjoy it.
Enjoy a fusion burrito with the option to add vegetable stir fry into the wrap or opt for a kimchi fried rice that uses the addition of Mexican spices to create a blast of flavor.
5. Frijoles & Frescas
With six locations peppered all throughout Las Vegas, you know that Frijoles & Frescas is doing something right, and it’s not just the affordable prices.
This authentic Mexican restaurant opened its doors in 2014 and has been stealing hearts ever since. It all started with a man named Alberto who made his way from Mexico City to Las Vegas where he started working as a busboy.
Working his way up from the bottom, Alberto spent much of his life in the restaurant industry before opening up a place of his own.
Thanks to this, Alberto not only knows what makes delicious, authentic Mexican fare, but he also knows what is needed to successfully run such a business.
The average cost of a meal at Frijoles & Frescas is somewhere between five and ten dollars, but you will rarely find a dish that exceeds fifteen dollars.
And anything that gets close is worth the price, like the Burrito Meal which comes packed with a main dish, chips, salsa, and a drink.
But for the most part, you will be enjoying delicious items like the eight-dollar chicken quesadillas or the five-dollar shrimp tostadas.
Not to mention the fact that all meats are interchangeable with eight options ranging from carne asada to lengua.
6. Greenberg’s Deli
There are plenty of reasons to fall in love with Las Vegas’ Greenberg’s Deli, but one of its main highlights is just how affordable the menu is.
This is one of those places that combines a tasty meal with a unique experience, so it is actually shocking how cheap the menu is when the deli has so much to offer.
For starters, the deli is part of the New York Hotel and Casino which specializes in all things well…New York.
Everything about this place will have you feeling like you’ve been transported over to the Big Apple, but one of the coolest places to check out is Village Street.
The Village Street Eateries is a series of New York-inspired restaurants nestled amongst brownstone buildings that will make you feel like you are walking the streets of New York City’s famous Greenwich Village.
And it just so happens that this is where you will find Greenberg’s Deli.
Although some of the prices you will see here can feel costly in comparison to real New York City delis, it is definitely cheap in the eyes of Las Vegas.
For example, you can get a classic New York-style breakfast like bacon, egg, and cheese for under ten dollars with coffee included.
But the best time to come here is for lunch when the deli boasts multiple hot sandwiches with pastrami as the main ingredient.
Thirteen dollars for a sandwich isn’t half bad when it is jam-packed with pastrami, turkey, beef brisket, and muenster cheese.
7. Flour & Barley
Just about everywhere you go in the country you will find a pizzeria of some sort, so a restaurant of this kind really has to offer something special to stand out amongst the crowd – and Flour & Barley has just that.
Beer and pizza just kind of go together and in a city where drinking is one of the main activities, it only makes sense that you will find a pizzeria around every corner.
And even though most of these establishments qualify as cheap eats, nothing compares to Flour & Barley located within The LINQ Promenade.
This restaurant checks off every box including affordable prices, trendy design, friendly staff, delicious food, and so much more.
And when you are not raving about the mouth-watering wood-fired pizza, you can be taste testing some of the hundred beers served up in a can, bottle, or on tap.
Pizza prices continue to rise, but this place has managed to maintain an average price of less than twenty dollars for a large pie, which is pretty impressive.
The only pie on the menu that reaches the twenty-dollar mark is the Farm House, but it is worth every penny with its mozzarella, smoked bacon, Cotto ham, fennel sausage, roasted onion, and farm egg.
To make the most of your money, come during happy hour when pizza pie prices drop down to ten dollars and you can get a pint of draft beer for as little as five dollars.
8. Cafe Sanuki
With a strong focus on authentic Japanese cuisine, Cafe Sanuki is one of the few Japanese restaurants in Las Vegas that offers real quality food at affordable rates.
Back in 2015, the founder of Cafe Sanuki was awarded permission by the original masters of Udon to bring their traditional dishes into the United States and since then, every precaution has been taken to ensure the same great quality.
This restaurant is so serious about providing visitors with an authentic experience that it has bought a machine that recreates the water composition that is used in Sanuki.
Furthermore, all of the native ingredients are shipped over to the states from Sanuki, and special noodle machines are used to create the perfect size every time.
Not to mention the fact that Udon masters are invited to come to visit the restaurant twice a year to ensure that the menu continues to hold true to Japanese traditions.
Considering the great lengths this restaurant goes to satisfy its customers, it is amazing how they are able to maintain such affordable rates.
Most of the appetizers, including fan favorites like gyoza, are less than five dollars and even their famous Udon and ramen bowls rarely exceed ten dollars.
9. Tacos El Gordo
Known as a famous local chain restaurant throughout California and Nevada, Tacos El Gordo is one of those places you have to try during your visit, and it just so happens to be a great cheap eat option.
Although Tacos El Gordo didn’t open its first location in Las Vegas until 2010, it has been in business since 1972, so it is safe to say that this place knows a thing or two about customer satisfaction.
Part of what makes this business so successful is the way that it treats all of its customers with care even going as far as saying that everyone that dines here is part of the family.
Plus, the restaurant has a strong focus on fresh ingredients so a meal here can be enjoyed knowing that everything down to the salsa is made daily.
Ten dollars can get you an entire feast at Tacos El Gordo with most menu items ranging from two to four dollars.
Enjoy eight different kinds of tacos, ranging from spicy pork to tripe and everything in between, for as little as two dollars apiece.
Order a quesadilla or sope with a meat of your choosing for only four dollars. The options are endless! Just don’t forget to get a classic drink like horchata to help wash it all down.
10. $5 Cafe
Although the $5 Cafe has plenty of delicious, cheap eats to choose from, the name can be a bit misleading considering the fact that there are plenty of items on the menu that cost more than that.
It is argued that this place was once able to provide a menu where everything on the menu was five dollars, but due to the continuous rise of inflation, the cafe eventually had to bump up some of the prices.
However, even with the increase in price, this cafe still holds the title of one of the best cheap eats in Las Vegas. And besides, you’ll still find an item or two on the menu that boasts the five-dollar price tag, so hope is not entirely lost.
One of the main reasons that this cafe has made a name for itself, aside from its affordable prices, is its diverse menu ranging from American breakfast to Thai lunch platters.
And speaking of breakfast, the cafe has gained a following for its delicious options. Splurge on a philly steak breakfast burrito for ten dollars or stick with a classic breakfast of eggs and bacon for that five-dollar staple.
11. Big Wong
Nobody likes to wait forever for their food, but there is no denying that a line that wraps around the block is a sign of a tasty meal, so you can guess that Big Wong has plenty to offer.
This hole-in-the-wall Chinese restaurant is only becoming more and more popular as visitors continue to feel the need to rave about their experience on review sites like Yelp and TripAdvisor.
Everything about this place is authentic and the humble restaurant doesn’t even have its own website, so you really have to see it to believe it.
It is also important to note that while this is labeled as a Chinese restaurant, you will find a tasty variety of dishes that are traditional in areas all throughout Asia.
Just be prepared to be overwhelmed because the menu for Big Wong is huge and there are thirty-five options for signature dishes alone.
The good news is that most of the menu features platters that are less than ten dollars with a few note-worthy options that exceed this amount like ribeye steak, grilled eel, and fried fish filet.
But for the most part, the rest of the menu is pretty cheap, with some options that even include complimentary additions like special seasoned rice and noodle soup.
12. Ocean One Bar & Grille
Open from the early morning to late at night, the Ocean One Bar & Grille offers cheap eats for breakfast, lunch, and dinner but the real crowd-pleaser is the happy hour menu.
The Ocean One Bar & Grille is slowly taking over Las Vegas, with more locations popping up throughout the city every year.
It has become one of the most popular locations for locals looking to grab a drink after a long day at work and for tourists to stop in for a cheap meal on the way to the casino.
You can’t go wrong with lunch specials that average about five dollars and dinner specials that are literally the definition of “bang for your buck.”
But the real reason people stay for a while is because of the three-for-one happy hour drinks. Especially since happy hour is all day long!
Regardless of whether you want the Mahi Mahi tacos or the marinated skirt steak with cabernet sauce, the lunch price remains a steady five dollars even.
And if the three-for-one cocktails have kept you in the restaurant long enough to stay for dinner as well, you will be amazed to see how the menu completely transforms.
Have your pick between brick oven pizzas, a large variety of house specials, and the daily chef specialties.
13. Viva Las Arepas
Awarded the title of Best Latin Restaurant in Las Vegas, again and again, you can never go wrong with grabbing a bite to eat at Viva Las Arepas especially when you consider its affordable prices.
At first glance, Viva Las Arepas looks like just another small-time restaurant on the busy Las Vegas strip, but as you walk by and smell the intoxicating aroma that is coming from within, it is impossible to pass it up.
Plus, everything on the menu is handheld, so you can grab a quick bite and immediately head off to the next big attraction for the day.
Just make sure to grab a few extra arepas for the road, because once you take the first bite, you will be sure to fall in love.
Not to mention the fact that there are over ten different styles of arepas to choose from.
Enjoy classic options like arepas with wood fire beef and chicken or opt for something different like an arepa with reina pepiada, which is made up of chicken, avocado, mayo, and cilantro.
Regardless of which one you choose, the price is always less than eight dollars, with dollar add ons available like a fried egg. Arepas not your thing? This place offers other tasty options like empanadas and pastelitos.
14. Munch Box
Known as one of the most popular places to grab an affordable breakfast and lunch, Munch Box is easily one of the best cheap eat options in Las Vegas.
The good news is that you can get breakfast or lunch at any time during operating hours, but the bad news is that this joint doesn’t usually stay open past four o’clock.
The bottom line is that this is a great place to stop in before starting an exciting evening in the bustling city and an even better place to grab a greasy dish after a long night of bar hopping.
And even though this place gives off fast food vibes, it offers some pretty unique options like strawberry Nutella pancakes.
Roll out of bed at one in the afternoon craving a breakfast sandwich? Wake up in the morning with the urge to devour a hamburger? Munch Box has you covered.

Have your pick of sides including hash browns, fruit salad, home fries, french fries, and chips.
15. Archi’s Thai Cafe
When you ask anyone from Las Vegas where to go for the best Thai food, their response is almost always Archi’s Thai Cafe. And who can blame them with its delicious yet affordable menu?
The restaurant gets its name from the founder, Arichai Silpasuvun, who was originally born in Thailand before making his way over to Las Vegas where he grew his livelihood.
Archi’s Thai Cafe was established back in 2002 when Thai cuisine just started to make a name for itself in the city.
But even though Thai restaurants started popping up all over Las Vegas in recent years, Archi’s Thai Cafe had held the title as number one for its authentic fare.
Recreating the traditional dishes he grew up with in Thailand, Archi ensures that every meal enjoyed here is one that can give diners an insight into what dinner is like in his country.
Aside from the famous Crispy Seafood Pancake, every appetizer on the menu is less than ten dollars.
You can’t go wrong with coming here for dinner with a fine selection of noodle, rice, and specialty dishes that boast large portions paired with prices as low as fifteen dollars.
But to make the most of your money, visit between 11 AM and 4 PM when the lunch special is in full effect. The most expensive during this time is fourteen dollars, but it also comes with soup, an egg roll, and a fried wonton.
Although most of its locations are found in California, Las Vegas has recently been lucky enough to get an Eggslut of their own, and it has become one of the best breakfast spots in the city ever since.
The name of this place alone is enough to draw people in, but once they realize this fast-food breakfast spot is run by a gourmet chef, it is almost impossible to stay away.
With that being said, there is always a long line, but every minute you wait is worth it knowing the delicious meal you’ll be rewarded with at the end.
If you couldn’t tell by the name, the main ingredient in all of the dishes is eggs, but what you probably didn’t know is that they are locally sourced.
So while the price tag on the menu items seems a little high for a typical fast-food restaurant, it is actually pretty cheap considering the quality you are receiving…especially since you are in Vegas.
Besides, where else can you get a breakfast meal like the Fairfax Sandwich fully equipped with cage-free soft scrambled eggs, chives, caramelized onions, cheddar cheese, sriracha mayo in a warm brioche bun for just twelve dollars?

Just about everything on the menu is fifteen dollars or less with the exception of the king cut prime rib house special, which is worth every cent of its twenty-two-dollar price tag.
If steak isn’t your thing, check out some of the restaurant’s other favorites like chicken fried steak, chicken caesar wrap, frisco burger, and so many more.
Just make sure to save room for dessert because the root beer float is pretty outstanding.
30. Pacific Island Taste
There aren’t many Hawaiian restaurants in Las Vegas, especially ones that offer delicious food at affordable rates, but that is where Pacific Island Taste comes into play.
Everything on the menu is created with authentic Hawaiian cuisine in mind and the lead chef has mastered the art during his childhood on the island.
The menu is a combination of his own family recipes and the recipes of other locals who grew up in Hawaii. Plus, all of the ingredients are fresh so you can guarantee the best quality possible.
Open from morning until night, there is never a bad time to eat here.
Stop in during the early hours for a classic Hawaiian breakfast like Redondo hot dog, eggs, and rice for only eight dollars.
Or opt to come for lunch when you can get a deal on a bento box filled with fish, chicken katsu, short rib, and Redondo hot dog for only fourteen bucks.
On average most of the dishes cost between ten and fifteen dollars with the most expensive being the Hawaiian Plate.
But this is definitely the option to pick if you want to get a taste of everything that makes true Hawaiian cuisine.
