If you’re a regular visitor to Las Vegas, you know the excitement and feeling you get when a new hotel and casino opens. If you are food lover and like to try out new places on your visits, here is some more. However, despite all the ongoing discussions about the latest and greatest, there’s plenty to be said about those vintage Las Vegas steakhouses that feature that old city charm. Here are 4 choices for the top 4 Las Vegas vintage steakhouses:
• Golden Steer – established in 1958, the Golden Steer is located near Downtown Las Vegas. If you had a time machine, you could go back and see Elvis Presley or Joe DiMaggio tasting a juicy steak or members of the Rat Pack hanging out at the bar. The red leather booths, retro wood paneling on the walls, and Western artwork feel like the perfect atmosphere when you’re digging into one of their 18-ounce porterhouse steaks.
• Joe Vicari’s Andiamo Steakhouse – tucked away in a 2nd floor corner of The D, this steakhouse is known for its retro atmosphere. Every steak has been aged for 30 days and is served with your choice of their 3 signature steak sauces. For those who come with a big appetite, the 32 oz. long-bone ribeye known as the Andiamo tomahawk should be right up your alley. However, if you’re not a meat eater, you have a choice of several Italian classics such as caprese, gnocchi, Italian wedding soup, or risotto.
• Steakhouse at Circus Circus – for over three decades, this steakhouse has been a real crowd-pleaser. It features big dinners, a retro vibe, and top-notch service. Top menu items feature Alaskan king crab legs, filet mignon, or NY strip steak, all of which are served with bread, soup or salad, and veggies. And no, they’re not a la carte like they are at those newer fancy restaurants. They even have a glass-enclosed meat locker where they dry age their beef for 21 days.
• Top of Binion’s Steakhouse – this classic Las Vegas steakhouse is situated on the 24th floor of Binion’s Gambling Hall and Hotel. It features the old historic Vegas feel and spectacular panoramas of the city. Why not treat yourself to your favorite cut of an Angus steak (filet mignon, prime rib, or ribeye) that’s been pasture-raised and aged for 28 days. Furthermore, if you’re a seafood lover, their huge “Seafood on Ice for Two” is a can’t-miss appetizer that should be experienced by everyone.
