    Over the years, these have been some great places to go. Some great spots worthy to experience, if you venture outside casino properties. A few are attached to mid-strip properties or very walkable. The 'Spring Mountain Road' places are extremely worthy of a cab ride or getting over there somehow.

    Golden Steer Steakhouse. Check out

    . IMO, better all around the Del Frisco's with better prices/ Not so stuffy and formal. About a 1/2 block west of the SLS, at the north end of the block on the west side of the strip where Circus Circus is. Been there around 60 years, they are doing something right.

    Pi zz a Rock Las Vegas. Downtown. Simply the place rocks. Fun with super specialty/gourmet pies and numerous other dishes as well. Upscale kind of pi z za joint you can say. Check out

    . All the way out on the west side, if you are around Red Rock or out exploring, check them out. Went there a few times with my attorney now, everything spot on. Great selection. They make sure it is right. Not cheap, not expensive IMO.

    Frankie's Tiki Bar. Check out

    . Been around quite awhile, well known in the Tiki culture and written about in the Vegas industry media.

    Golden Tiki. Out on West Spring Mountain Road. Check out

    . I guess the consensus is, Golden TIki is superior to that of Frankie's Tiki Room the past couple of years. Haven't been by Frankie's the past couple of years as I am always winding up on Spring Mountain Road at one of the Asian Places or Hot n Juicy and then going to Golden Tiki. If you are at all interested in the Tiki culture or info, go to

    .

    Hot n Juicy Crawfish, Out on West Spring Mountain Road. They do have 2 places on Spring Mountain. WE usually go to the one within the plaza with the Korean BBQ place and The Golden Tiki Bar. For those of you that don't know where Spring Mountain Road is, it is the road running west between the Fashion Mall and Treasure Island across the I-15 and out into Chinatown. Simply you have to go to this place is you like seafood/Cajun style seafood, etc. It is a 15 on a 10 scale! Research 'Yelp' and read--you will get the gist of it. Check out

    . Personally I love their 1 pound shrimp/1 pound prawns/1 pound sausage with the multiple corn on the cobs. The place is fun, mouth watering and spot on.

    NOTE>>>> Hot n Juicy, Golden Tiki and a great Korean BBQ (NY Style) is at the SAME SHOPPING PLAZA, it is on the south side of Spring Mountain Road. Many times we will do either the Korean place and then Golden Tiki or Hot n Juicy and then Golden Tiki.

    Dae Keum Korean BBQ. THis is in the above shopping plaza I mentioned. For those of you familiar with Flushing, Queens NY, this is an authentic Korean BBQ restaurant you can cook at your own table. Flushing, Queens or Fort Lee, New Jersey style. Their phone number is 702-638-2222, been there many times. Great place open 24 hours, never closes. The staple of Korean BBQ is called 'Bulgogi', they also have larger combination platters of all the meats, etc., they are known their as "King-Queens-Jacks-Ace", etc.

    Carmines Italian, Check out

    Can't go wrong. Located within the Caesars Palace Forum Shops. Large and Sharable. Usually get the order of Meatballs along with an appetizer of clams and mussels. I also really like their broiled porterhouse and a linguine with the mixed seafood, I believe they call it. Add a side of eggplant and you got enough to share for 3 or 4 people.

    Maggiano's Little Italy. Ate there numerous times. Located within the Fashion Mall. Great food, always spot on, never a complaint. I remember their Lamb Loin being excellent. Also they have a really great linguine with clams. Last time there they brought us a free second of the pasta and clams and we wound up sharing it. The place is good. Check out

    Pink's Hot Dogs. If you don't know about them or never tried them, and you are craving a hot dog, a gourmet style or specialty hot dog that is, check them out! Outside of Planet Hollywood on the Southwest patio out on the strip side. Check them out at

    Fogo de Chao Steakhouse. If you have never been to a Brazilian Steakhouse, you owe it to yourself to check this one out. They have other ones throughout the country. Been there before, and it is usually really full, so be warned. It is out on East Flamingo Road. Check them out at

    . When you are tired of a quite and expensive celebrity chef restaurant, check this hyper fun place out. Been there an mighty long time. Always in the media and advertised. Good food and some really good food, lots of staples, bread, wine and stuff. More fun then serious and for many, considered an experience and living it up in a fun and casual atmosphere.

    Lombardi's Romagna Mia. Check out

    . In the Miracle Mile Mall attached to Planet Ho. Really good all around place. Sit for hours dine, desserts and drink. Nice atmosphere in that part of the mall. I had some pictures posted with the family here stuffing our faces. Great seafood dishes.

    Nora's Italian Cuisine. Check out

    . Out on West Flamingo Road. IMO place is spot on, absolutely fantastic. Had the wild boar last time and the Alfredo pasta called something like 'Supreme crazy', lots of stuff on it done really well! Check it out, can't go wrong there.

    Casi Di Amore. Check them out at

    . Old School, spot on. Call them they will send you their care/limo service no charge. Jazz entertainment nightly, I think all the time. Their Osso Buco is off the hook! It is over on East Tropicana Ave.

    Peppermill Restaurant. Check them out at WWW. peppermilllasvegas.Com. I highly recommend their eggs benedict with their patented '100-grit' flavored sandpaper! Something for everyone at this long time existing place. Just north of the mid-strip on the north end of The Encore.

    "Eat" on Carson Street downtown is as good as advertised. Chef Natalie is there almost daily to oversee operations. Their breakfast plates are divine. Legit Chicken Fried Steak. Everything is made fresh.

    And yes, Hot N Juicy is amazing. Best crawfish outside of Louisiana.

    Definitely trying that next time!!!

    And, you are 1,000% correct about Hot n Juicy, I would walk there from the strip if I had to get there. Being the 3 places are contained in that one plaza, it is a great evening out and off the strip for most! IMO!

    Le Thai and Carson Kitchen are two great places. Ronald's Doughnuts and Tacos El Gordo are two must haves each trip.

    I was and did like the place, had two great hosts there, one left and the other is there. Mid-Strip, will probably always use PH or B. or Mirage next time, did think I will stay again in C.P. for reasons other than gaming. Still like their HL baccarat but going through a phase now with off-strip properties as well.
