1. Chicago Brewing Co.
First on our list is a tucked-away gem found at the top of a flight of stairs in the busy Four Queens Resort and Casino. If you’re a lover of beer and a good cheap eat, then Chicago Brewing Company is a place you should visit.
Conveniently this little place offers both smoking and non-smoking sections. You can enjoy your food, beer, and sport, which plays on their big TV screens, without having to get up and go outside for a smoke. They even have a selection of cigars available so that you can experience the Vegas life.
Chicago Brewing Co. offers a range of well-priced eats. You can order their Chicago Dog for under $8. Made with a Vienna dog, relish, onions, tomatoes, peppers, and fries. If you’re craving a burger instead, their Brew Burger is also under $10 and is full of flavor!
For a healthier option, they also offer salads. You can get a classic salad for under $5 or a Simple Caesar Salad, which comes with romaine, cheese, and croutons for only $6. You can add chicken, shrimp, or salmon for an additional price.
To grab an even cheaper meal, visit this restaurant from 3 – 6 pm when appetizers are half price and draft beer is $2 less than usual!
This little gem is open daily from 11:30 am – 1:30 am.

2. Evel Pie
Popular among social media influencers and packed with nostalgic decor is Evel Pie. This funky joint is always packed, and you may have to wait in line for a while. However, once you’re inside, you’ll quickly see that the wait was worth it.
The restaurant is filled with one of the most extensive collections of Evel Knievel memorabilia in the world. While you’ll love their decor, it’s their cheap pizza slices that will make your tastebuds fall in love.
Although their 20-inch (50.8 cm) pizzas are priced above our $15 budget (perfect for takeout), you can enjoy a hot pizza slice for as little as $4. Just a slice is satisfactory and is deemed “more than enough” by some customers.
If you’re not the biggest pizza lover, you can order their famous Grandma’s Balls for $9, which comes with Evel’s Tomato Sauce. There is also a Vegan option of these that come with the same sauce and are just $8.
Their $8 Wings are also delicious and come with various sauce options. And if you’d prefer a salad, they have those too. You can order their Jump’n Caesar Salad for only $7, and it’s mixed with romaine, croutons, cheese, and caesar dressing.
You should definitely add Evel Pie to your bucket list. This experience will leave you with more than just a happy food memory – you’ll also have an experience you can tell your friends about.
Here’s a quick piece of trivia about this unique place – it’s operated partially by the Evel Knievel estate and Knievel’s son, Kelly.
Evel Pie is open from Saturday – Wednesday from 11 am – 1 am. On Thursdays and Fridays, they’re available from 11 am – 3 am.
Catch Happy Hour from 2 pm – 6 pm. You can find Evel Pie at 508 E Fremont Street.

3. American Coney Island
Nothing screams “Vegas” louder than the American Coney Island restaurant and all of their cheap delights.
This ever-busy 24/7 restaurant has a walk-up counter and a few eat-in tables available to their customers. However, they provide consistent, mouth-watering food that you can get quickly at a low price.
With nothing priced over $7 here, you don’t have to worry about your budget for a change. You can’t go wrong with their famous Coney Island Hot Dog for under $4. This Dog comes with chili, mustard, and onion. If you’re visiting from Detroit, this will taste just like home.
If you’d like to flex and order the most expensive thing on the menu, you’ll be offered the Gyro Sandwich for a little over $6. This meal comes in a pita and contains gyro meat, tomatoes, onions, and Tzatziki Sauce.
American Coney Island is open 24 hours daily. You’ll find it next to the D Bar inside the Fremont Street Experience.

4. Siegel’s 1941
Determined to bring back the vibe and memory of early Vegas is Siegel’s 1941.
The many cheap options you have to choose from can make deciding on an order a bit confusing, so I recommend starting with either their Tuna sandwich or their Mac and Cheese for only $10 each.
For under $10, you’ll find their Matzo Ball soup, their Soup of the Day, and their Tossed Salad.
From 11 pm to 11 am, their Breakfast Sandwich Supreme is available for under $8. This English muffin is packed with egg, bacon, and cheese, and it comes with a coffee.
Due to this restaurant being open 24/7, they’ve mastered their breakfasts and made them nice and cheap. You can grab a waffle or pancakes for only $8 or a Croissant Sandwich for $10.
Something I appreciate about Siegel’s 1941 is that they look after their older population by offering 50% off of their special menu to anyone over the age of 50. This offer is available on Wednesdays from 6 – 10 pm.
You can locate Siegel’s 1941 inside the El Cortez Hotel and Casino. They’re open 24 hours on the weekends and from 7 am – 10 pm during the week.

If you’re recovering from a hangover or a long night of gambling, Binion’s Cafe just might be your lifesaver. Located inside Binion’s Gambling Hall, this Cafe can be your convenient quick meal stop before heading back onto the casino floor.
Binion’s Cafe offers large portions of breakfasts, appetizers, sandwiches, burgers, salads, soups, entrees, and pasta – their menu sure isn’t limited. Their cheap food may not be all glitz and glam, but their prices are impressive.
Want to get traditional? Try their Binion’s Famous Burger, a staple for over 65 years – it’s priced at just over $6. A little less traditional but just as affordable is their Gourmet Grilled Cheese for under $8.
Although slightly more pricey than most of the menu, I recommend their Rosemary Chicken Wrap. It’s just over $10, but this garlic tortilla comes with a sliced marinated chicken breast, lettuce, tomato, avocado, and garlic lemon aioli.
All of their desserts, sides, and hot beverages are under $5, so if you order carefully, you could walk out of there with your stomach full and still have only spent under $10.
Binion’s Cafe is open daily from 7 am – 1:30 am.

One of the most fantastic places on Fremont Street is Downtown Container Park. It’s here that you’ll find Pinches Tacos, the Mexican restaurant that handpicks their ingredients every morning. You’re guaranteed fresh meals daily!

Bonus: Tony Roma’s (Cheap Steak and Lobster)
How about a bonus spot? This is truly one of our personal favorite meals on Fremont Street for a late dinner. Between the hours of 9 pm and 11 pm every night, Tony Roma’s inside the Fremont Hotel offers a steak and lobster tail meal for just $11.99.
Some evenings we head downtown just to enjoy this meal. Because the steak and lobster deal is only available for a couple of hours it’s best to arrive just before 9 pm and put your name on the waitlist because it can get busy.
