High-end dining options and celebrity chef restaurants seem to get all the love in Las Vegas. Social media is constantly abuzz with images of fancy meals, and gourmet steaks. While steaks at top-tier restaurants are assuredly fantastic, they are out of the preferred price range of many budget travelers to Vegas. Lost in the fawning over expensive dinners is the common man or woman looking for a steak that’ll do the trick without breaking the bank.
We thought it would be fun to compile a list of mediocrity. A list of cheap steaks that won’t break the bank both on the Strip and downtown. To qualify as “cheap”, steaks needed to be at a $25 price point or below. As you would expect, steak deals are a touch better in downtown Las Vegas than those found on the Strip.
If you have a favorite spot to grab a steak on a budget, ensure to leave it in the comments!
