Fusion Time for ya!
Ok....Speedeats Faithful might know and love a place in Phoenix called Chino Bandido that features a fusion of Asian and Mexican flavors. If you like that, and are making the trip to Vegas, give China Poblano a try. It's not the true character joint like Chino... but this restaurant features cuisines from both cultures (although most seperate). They take reservations and offer a to-go menu!  A hip place for the hip foodie!

The Peppermill
Speedeats Says The Best Food & Value on the Strip. A Vegas Classic!
Check out our Video
Hands down our favorite place to eat, 24-7, in Vegas. Spotter Mike Herman says,  "Are you in search of "Old School Vegas?"  Then look no further than the Peppermill, located between the Riviera & Encore on the Las Vegas Strip.  Step inside the Fireside Lounge, and you'll go straight back in time to 1972 & the Elvis Years.   Whether it's 3am or 3pm, the Peppermill is the coolest ultra lounge in Vegas. Grab a seat by the firepit and unwind by enjoying a famous "Scorpion."  If the neon decor looks familiar, just imagine Robert De Niro & Sharon Stone in the movie "Casino."  One of the famous scenes with Ace & Ginger was filmed inside the Peppermill. 
 
If you're in search of eats, then stay to the right, and walk into the 24 Hour Restaurant & Coffee Shop.  Breakfast, lunch, or dinner, the Peppermill has it all, with big portions that will leave you satisfied."
SUGGESTIONS: The Pastrami Burger, The famous Fruit Plate. Oh, and any Omlette.

Viva Zapata's
Speedeats.com Says:  Watch the Lady Making the Tortillas!
Want authentic Mexican cuisine in Las Vegas?  This is your place. Television Audio expert Justin Oppman tipped us off to Viva Zapatas. It's a fun place for sure. The ladies make the tortillas in part of the restaurant to where you can watch. It's loud, affordable and fun!  Racing Electronics' Kevin Hughes and John LaVeque love the Queso Fundido w/ Chorizo Appetizer.

 Big Sur Oyster Bar (South Point Casino)
Speedeats.com Says: "Lobster Grilled Cheese! We don't need to say more?" 
If you are a NASCAR person you have to go support the South Point Hotel and Casino!  If you do, the Lobster Grilled Cheese at the Big Sur Oyster Bar is a must.  A fav of our Matthew Dillner and NASCAR / Rock n' Roll celebrity Riki Rachtman.

Hash House A Go Go
click hereto view our 2010 video
 
Working on your portion-control? Haaaa!  Stay away from Hash House A Go Go.  The place serves monster gourmet dishes that are a unique spin on traditional midwest farm food.  Our friends at Racing Electronics introduced us to Hash House.  We took the Turner Sports / NASCAR.com folks there during banquet week. Try the Sage Fried Chicken Hardwood Smoked Bacon Waffles!  They're breakfast is legendary as well.
 
Oh... they have a location on the strip but it's worth the drive or cab-ride to go to the location off the strip. We prefer that one! The food seems much better at the off-strip location.

Battista's Hole in the Wall
If you like "Old School Vegas" this is your place.  Battista's is as old school as it gets. From the sign out front to the decor inside, it's classic Vegas.  The italian food is old school Vegas too. Nothing uber-gourmet here, just good simple italian food and A LOT of it!
