10 Vegas Eats for Under $10

It’s 2 o’clock in the morning. You’re wandering the Vegas Strip heading back to your hotel room from the nightclub. Suddenly, hunger strikes, but you spent the majority of your allotted cash for the night on drinks. Check out these 10 meals for $10 or less that are sure to beat back the late night hunger pangs.

The Park – 3782 S. Las Vegas Blvd.
The fine folks at Bruxie have imagined a future in which sandwiches are made with waffles instead of bread, and we dig it. Try the roasted mushroom and goat cheese waffle sandwich filled to the brim with crimini mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, herb goat cheese, arugula, lemon vinaigrette and a balsamic reduction. There are plenty of meaty options to be had at Bruxie, but sometimes you just want some herb goat cheese on a waffle. At $9, this vegetarian delight is as easy on the wallet as it is on the digestive system.

The Goodwich
900 S. Las Vegas Blvd. #120
Sometimes, you just need some greasy pork belly in your life, especially after a night of imbibing at the club. Enter the Cuban-esque from The Goodwich. This Key West import stacks pork “butt n belly” with Swiss cheese. The pickle “maystard” serves as the perfect topping to this simple classic. A crisp Alexander Hamilton (that’s $10, kids) is all you’ll need to be transported to porky paradise.

Desi Burrito
670 E. Flamingo Rd.
The subcontinent meets south of the border at Desi Burrito. These favorite Indian dishes are wrapped in a tortilla and served up with cold, frothy lassis. The chicken chili burrito borrows bold flavors from both Indian and Mexican cuisine. This satisfying meal will only set you back $8.

Flock & Fowl
380 W. Sahara Ave.
Flock & Fowl specializes in Hainan chicken rice, which is delicious. But where the free-range chicken really shines is when it’s served up as Thai Caramel Chicken Wings with crispy garlic. The sheer volume of flavors melding together will keep you coming back. You can never have enough, but eight wings for $10 is a good start.

Haute Doggery 
The Linq – 3535 S. Las Vegas Blvd.
The Longhorn from Haute Doggery is a mountain of a frankfurter. This char grilled wiener is topped with smoked beef brisket, coleslaw, onion rings and pickles. For only $8, it’s enough food to feed a real cowboy without the ridiculous Strip prices. Belly full, you’ll ride off into the sunset … er … sunrise.

Flippin’ Good Burgers
505 E. Fremont St.

A good cheeseburger at the end of a long night out goes down faster than that first pint did. The Flame from Flippin’ Good Burgers in Downtown Las Vegas is no different. Topped with the usual cheeseburger fixings, grilled jalapenos, Flippin' sauce and melted pepper jack cheese, this beefy masterpiece is sandwiched between freshly baked buns from local bakers. It’s only $6, so you’ll have enough left over to Uber back to the hotel.

Makers & Finders
1120 S. Main St. #110
If you’ve never tried the Venezuelan food known as arepas, you’re in for a treat. It’s like a corn flour griddle cake of sorts, and it makes for a splendid canvas on which to pile savory shredded beef. Case in point, La Paisa Arepas is one of Makers & Finders’ most popular menu items. The dish is served with carne desmechada, sweet plantains, crispy chicken skins, avocado, black beans and a farm-raised egg for just $10. A side of honorary Venezuelan citizenship is optional.

Tacos El Gordo
3049 S. Las Vegas Blvd.
Perhaps the ultimate Vegas cheap eat, the tacos al pastor at Tacos El Gordo, a Tijuana transplant, have the club goers lined up around the block every Saturday night. The idea is simple. Expertly marinated pork is cooked on a trompo, placed on a corn tortilla and topped with avocado crema. Order a handful for $2 a pop.

505 E. Oakey Blvd.
Since 1973, Luv-it’s frozen custard has delighted overheated tourists and locals alike. Stop by the same location that it’s operated out of for nearly 50 years and sample flavors such as Sin-A-Buns, chocolate pretzel, cherry pie and gingerbread cookie. Snag a double scoop on a waffle cone for less than $5, take a bite as you walk away, and immediately turn back to buy an $8 quart for the hotel room.

The Linq – 3535 S. Las Vegas Blvd.
It’s late. You’re somewhat in the bag. You want a cupcake. We totally understand and so does Sprinkles, the cupcake bakery from Beverly Hills. The company has installed one of its Cupcake ATMs outside its LINQ Promenade location. Anytime day or night you can stroll up to the ATM, swipe your plastic, select a flavor and be delivered a delicious cupcake. You don’t even have to talk to other humans. A variety of cupcake flavors rotate regularly and go for around $5.
