Top tips to save money in Vegas – Ellis Island $6.99 Steak Special

The Ellis Island $6.99 steak dinner is one of the Vegas legends it’s something that many people have heard about but never seen or tried. It’s almost as if people who have managed to sample this rare delicacy have entered a secret club and become part of the legend themselves.

Ellis ISalndEllis Island is huge Super Motel 8 in fact it’s the largest Super Motel 8 in the World which would probably be a pretty cool accolade if you were not in a town where this makes you about 5% of the size of the average Strip hotel. Ellis Island is an old lady in Vegas as she has just celebrated her 40th anniversary and was in fact the first property I ever stayed in on my first trip to Vegas in 1992. It’s located one block off of the Strip a short walk behind Ballys on Koval Avenue (which is the road that runs up behind MGM Grand). Ellis Island is just as well known for its micro brewery as it is the Steak Special.

The steak special is not on the menu you have to ask for it and for $6.99 you get a 10oz steak, a side of beans and either steak fries, mash or baked potato and a choice from the micro brewery or EI root beer. The quality an the flavour of the steak is not the best lacking slightly in flavour but in a city of eating bargains for $6.99 this rates close to the top. As well as the food look at the paper place mat these often have coupons printed on them which has been known to be $5 match play so your steak dinner could cost you $1.99. There are a whole host of other great value meals on the menu but to become the legend you need to have the steak.

The service at Ellis Island whilst polite and friendly is slow and you can wait some time for a table but your name goes on a list and you can wait in the casino or at the bar until you get called- smart move by the Casino right !

If you have time to go off Strip for a couple of hours this is well worth a visit and the steak dinner offers one of the best value meals that you can find in town just don’t expect a Lawry’s
