Lotus of Siam (the best Thai restaurant in North America?)
Lotus of Siam, a wonderful Thai restaurant in a strip mall, one mile away from the Strip. Don't let the drab strip mall appearance drive you away. We cannot recommend this place highly enough for anyone who loves Thai food. Simply the best we've ever had, bar none.

Isla - At Treasure Island
Fine Mexican Food and the best selection of tequilas in town. The Chicken Mole is simply mouth watering good. Do not miss a sample of Penka Azzul Reposado. There is no better true Tequila, IMHO.
Billy Bobs Steakhouse - Sams Town
A Zagat Rated local favorite. True value and excellent steaks. What could be better? This consistently great steakhouse offers some of the best values in town, and tops it off with truly great service.
Directions: Take Tropicana east to Boulder Highway and turn left. Sams Town is 1/2 mile down on the right.
