1. Lucky Penny
Drop in at the Lucky Penny at the Palms hotel for yummy food around the clock. Kids will be delighted to learn that something called a breakfast pizza even exists, and maybe you can even convince them to try the pizza salad. While they chow down on chicken fingers, burgers, and grilled cheese cooked on waffles, you can enjoy pesto salmon and grilled Brussels sprouts.
2. Mon Ami Gabi
Mon Ami Gabi is another one of those Vegas restaurants that keeps kids happy while serving up high-end choices for the parents who want something better than fast food. Here, your kids can enjoy the menu that’s filled with mazes and word search puzzles while munching on French bread pizza, steak and frites, or chicken fingers. Meanwhile, you can indulge in baked goat cheese, scallops gratinée, avocado toast, croque monsieurs, or quiche Lorraine. If you visit during the evening, ask for a seat near the window so you can watch the fountains at the Bellagio put on their show across the street.
3. Rollin’ Smoke Barbecue
Get off the strip to indulge in some of the best BBQ in Las Vegas at Rollin’ Smoke Barbecue. Kids’ meals feature burgers or ribs cooked St. Louis-style with sides like waffle-cut fries. When you want to head back to your vacation rental and chill together as a family, stop here to pick up party packs full of ribs, brisket, chicken, and pulled pork, and fill out your delicious meal with mac and cheese, corn nuggets, and bacon potato salad.
4. Bacchanal Buffet
If you’re headed to Vegas with your family, you definitely want to check out some of the town’s top buffets, and the Bacchanal at Caesar’s Palace is at the head of the list. The sumptuous displays of endless food include something to please everyone in your family, whether you prefer custom-made ramen, chicken and waffles, pork chops, prime rib, crab legs, or pizza. Because the choices can be overwhelming here, especially for little ones, take a stroll around the buffet to plan your meal before you start loading your plate – and leave room for the cheesecake pops, creme brulée, crepes, gelato, and more on the dessert tables.
5. Nacho Daddy
Think how excited your kids will be when you tell them you’re having nachos for dinner. At Nacho Daddy, you can try upscale re-imaginings of the classic nacho recipe, with lobster and crab, Thai chicken, and sloppy Joe nachos on the menu. If you’re not in the mood for crunch, check out the tacos, burritos, fajitas, and other Mexican standards, and save a little room for the deep-fried ice cream.
6. PizzaRev Taproom
Yes, we know your kids only want cheese on their pizza, but there’s no reason you can’t have the works. Stop at PizzaRev to design your own personalized pizza, or choose from one of the splendid combos, which include skinny Margherita, fennel and sausage, BBQ chicken, and Thai chicken. At the Taproom locations, you can relax with a glass of wine or beer after a long day of sightseeing. If you just want to get back to the comfort of your vacation rental, order everyone’s pizzas to go.
7. Hash House A Go Go
Hash House A Go Go has been voted the top family-friendly restaurant in Vegas, as well as winning multiple shoutouts as the best breakfast spot, so you know you’re in good shape when you head here with your kids. Try the fried chicken Benedict on a luscious biscuit, or go for the one-pound stuffed burger – perfect for splitting. Your kids will be thrilled at the wide variety of pancake and waffle choices, and you won’t mind the adult beverages at any time of the day.
8. The Earl of Sandwich
The Earl of Sandwich at Planet Hollywood serves up – can you guess? – hot sandwiches that use top-quality ingredients and never disappoint. These sandwiches come beautifully wrapped, making them ideal to pack in a picnic lunch if you’re going on a field trip to the Hoover Dam, and turkey sandwiches, grilled cheese, and pizza bread are there to keep fussy kids happy. Check out the delicious soups as well, come back for breakfast sandwiches, and try the Earl Gray lemonade if you’re an Arnold Palmer lover.
9. Gordon Ramsay Burger
If your kids are fans of celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay from any of his many TV shows, they won’t want to miss eating at one of his restaurants. Head to Gordon Ramsay Burger at Caesar’s Palace to dive into a thick, juicy burger. Sure, you could also go for the wheatberry quinoa salad, but the burgers are the stars here. Choose from burgers featuring jalapeños, chutney, tabbouleh, figgy jam, or foie gras to give yourself a treat.
10. Buddy V’s
A trip to Las Vegas with kids definitely requires a visit to the Venetian, where they can marvel at the indoor gondolas and the gondoliers singing away. While you’re there, grab lunch or dinner at Buddy V’s, a casual Italian eatery with a bit of Vegas flair. Kids aren’t limited to the standard children’s menu here, but can choose giant meatballs or handmade chicken Parmesan off the Bambinos’ menu.
11. Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips
Pay another visit to Chef Ramsay when you pop into the Linq Promenade for some fish and chips. Adventurous kids may want to check out the various dipping sauces, which include mango curry and sriracha sauces, or just stick to what has to be the best tartar sauce for hundreds of miles. Fries are also terrific, and you can get them with chorizo, truffles, or cacciatore spice.
12. Shake Shack
This New York transplant is ready to welcome young and old alike to (appropriately) the New York New York hotel. Sure, you can order your burger or hot dog, but everyone knows that the reason to come here is the shakes. Try one of the Shack’s famous “concretes,” with customized blend-ins added to frozen custard, for a truly tasty treat.
