For my money, nothing bookends a day of gambling and drinking in Las Vegas much better than a rack of ribs. Ribs in Las Vegas are somewhat difficult to come by in the first place, and finding a cheap option can be even more challenging.
We thought it would be fun to throw together a list of restaurants where you can score a cheap rack of ribs in Las Vegas both on the Strip and on Fremont Street.
Where to Find Cheap Ribs on the Strip
Ellis Island: While not directly on the Strip, we would be remiss to leave Ellis Island out of the cheap ribs conversation. A short 10-15 minute walk behind Bally’s, Ellis offers a full rack of baby back ribs for a measly $15.99 with a player’s card, while a half-rack will only set you back $11.99. Quality for the price is fantastic, ranking Ellis among the best rib deals near the Strip. See the menu. On a related note, Ellis Island also offers high quality, cheap, prime rib.
Dick’s Last Resort at Excalibur: Serving up a pretty cheap rack of ribs alongside a slew of insults, Dick’s offers a half rack of baby back ribs for $19.99 and a full rack for $23.99. Both options come with fries, and the full menu can be seen here.
Beer Park at Paris: Also offering views of the Fountains of Bellagio from Paris’ rooftop across the street, Beer Park serves up dry-rubbed, Beachwood smoked BBQ Pork Ribs with fries at a price point of $20.95 for a half rack and $26.95 for a full. See the menu.
Toby Keith’s at Harrah’s: Serving smoked, slow-roasted St. Louis Ribs at a price point of $23 for a half rack, and $29 for a full rack, guests will also receive their choice of 2 side items. See the menu.
Gilley’s at TI: Although not among the cheapest ribs on the Strip, Gilley’s does serve both a half and a full rack of Baby Back Ribs for $28.95 and $32.95 respectively. See the menu.
Where to Find Cheap Ribs Downtown Las Vegas
Benny’s Smokin’ BBQ & Brews: Located within Binion’s, a full rack of Baby Back Ribs with corn, beans, and cornbread can be yours for $15.99 provided you are a players club member. A half rack with the same sides will cost $11.99. Prices are $2 more for either meal if not a member of Binion’s loyalty club. Whether or not you sign up for the loyalty club, these are among the cheapest ribs you’ll find on Fremont Street. See the menu.
Tony Roma’s at Fremont: Although not as inexpensive as Benny’s, Tony Roma’s serves Baby Back or St. Louis Ribs for $21 (half rack) or $23 (full rack). Rib entrees are served with both coleslaw and french fries. View the menu.
Ribs can be challenging to find in Las Vegas! Hopefully, we were able to steer you in the direction of some budget options that will fit your needs. If you feel like venturing away from the main tourist centers, check out Rick’s Rollin’ Smoke near the Pawn Stars Pawn Shop or Jessie Rae’s BBQ behind Mandalay Bay. Both offer a highly acclaimed rack of ribs. Happy eating, and bring some floss!
