Strategies for Cheap Meals in Vegas

Cheap Vegas FoodBudgeting a cheap trip to Vegas will involve some creative workarounds to get cheap food, and we’ve got you taken care of for that. Some of these tips are common sense, but it doesn’t hurt to read them and save! Follow these tips the next time you’re planning a cheap Vegas vacation:

Budget Your Biggest Meal of the Day to be the Cheapest

You read that correctly; your biggest meal. This way, you’ll be able to budget and have a “splurge” meal at some point, because you saved money on your most expensive meal for a few days.

The Most Common Foods are the Cheapest

If you’re in an area with a lot of Mexican food, buy Mexican, for example. Competing restaurants will offer lower prices and generally give you more value for your money. Instead of eating only your favorite foods, eat what the locals eat, and go home with more money for other things.

Visit the Grocery Store

This may be blasphemy to those of you that want to eat out the whole time you’re on vacation, but there’s nothing wrong with saving a few bucks to make your nights out that much more special, is there? Check out the grocery store and you’ll be surprised how much is left in your pocket.

Be Social; Ask the Locals

It never hurts to find the right friendly-looking local to help you make a decision. Many times the locals know the best spots and can steer you to them.
