There is no shame in this! Here at the Oasis at Gold Spike, we are full supporters of coming to Downtown Las Vegas to experience some incredible dishes. At the end of the day when you’re stuffed and happy, come back to your crash pad at Oasis to relax and digest. Here are our top 10 favorite places to chow in Downtown Las Vegas.
