Nevada restaurants run the full gamut of dining options. This is a state with more world-class destination resorts than you can shake a stick at, each with restaurants to match the high quality that their guests expect. At the other end of the spectrum are the classic diners and neighborhood pubs that specialize in providing good food and lots of it on a daily basis to the hard-working locals who make their lives here. These Nevada restaurants and the state's eateries that fall between them on the scale of glitz and glamour all provide their own unique takes on dining, and all should be sampled at least once by anyone who truly enjoys the culinary experience. Nowhere else will you find such quality food in such a wide range of flavors, styles and settings as you will among the Nevada restaurants. At the hotels and casinos are high-end steak and seafood options and a growing number of sushi and Asian-inspired diners. Nevada’s cultural history has provided a legacy of Italian and Basque restaurants. And the wide selection of cafes providing good old-fashioned American comfort food hearkens back to the days before the state had built such a reputation for gaming and entertainment. Entrée, side dish or dessert, if it exists, one of the Nevada restaurants probably serves it.
Nevada has a selection of bars that serve up great liquor, beer or wine (but no food). The Wild West influence is evident in many of them, whether by personality or the design of the place. Belly up, order your favorite poison, shoot a game of pool, throw some darts and mingle with the others. Some allow smoking, some don't. Some are dive joints, some are one hair shy of fancy.
Must-tries at Nevada Restaurants
It can be hard to sample all of the food and dining experiences that the Nevada restaurants have to offer, so here are a few ideas to start you off. Try a family-style dinner at a Basque restaurant. Have some authentic Native American fry bread. An Awful Awful Burger and Rocky Mountain Oysters should also be on your list if you want to say you’ve really tasted the best of the Silver State.
