What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever made when you were high? We’re pretty sure that’s how people come up with delicacies like “hot Cheeto mac and cheese”.
But if you’re visiting Las Vegas and you’re in a hotel room, you don’t have the fixings for a weird munchies meal. That’s okay though, since Ubers, food delivery, and walking are all an option.
Here are seven places that you can get some late night, snacks without the high price tag or the judgment. Just don’t drive under the influence – find another way to get there.
Munchies in Las Vegas
Don’t open up that minibar! Those snacks will only semi-satisfy you and they’ll cost a fortune. Instead, visit …
If you live in the Mid-West, the South, or the East, we’re sorry for you. Only in that, you don’t have any In-N-Outs there. If you don’t know, it’s a famous West-coast burger chain and they make some of the best burgers out there.
Usually, a fast-food burger place wouldn’t make it onto a gastro guide, but In-N-Out is the exception. Learn their secret menu to order like a local.
Don’t forget to get a milkshake and some of their delicious fries. Take a paper hat for some selfies, too – it’s a tradition!
What’s better than a buffet when you have the munchies? Plus, it means you don’t have to make hard decisions, you can get a little bit of everything.
And it being ready to go keeps you from forgetting that you ordered something and getting scared when someone knocks on the door (or comes to your table).
This isn’t your Golden Corral alternative, though. You can get everything from cauliflower (for those keto people) to well-prepared salmon.
Is it cheap? No – but nothing in Vegas really is. There’s a discount if you have a Palm’s Player card though, so hit that up.
Sprinkles Cupcake ATM
If you’re staying near Cesar’s Palace, you’ll find the Sprinkles cupcake ATM across the street. Just find their location on the strip and then you’ll see the ATM on the sidewall of their store.
It’s open 24/7, with all the cupcakes served throughout the night made the previous day. You can get a range of flavors, which at that point, is whatever they had leftover.
It’s a cool concept and it’s fun to do, who doesn’t want to get their food out of an ATM? If the baker was feeling energetic that day, you may even find some cookies to choose from too.
Sprinkles cupcakes are famous around the world, so feel free to set your expectations high.
New York, New York American Restaurant
Not open all night, but open late is this restaurant in the New York, New York resort. It has all the bar foods and home comforts you can think of, like chicken wings and french toast.
It’s not overly expensive, at least for something on the strip, and the staff is good-natured. You won’t be the first stoned people there and you won’t be the last. If you’re staying on that end of the strip, go ahead and give it ago.
Just check that they’re open first.
Now, if you’re on or just off the strip, you can expect to find a food truck in your close vicinity. Here are a few to keep your eye out for.
This one just sounds stoner-friendly, doesn’t it? You can check their website to find their up-to-date daily location.
As far as food goes, you get a twist on southern classics here. Like chicken and waffles, except the chicken is put into a freshly made waffle cone.
Don’t expect to go walking the strip after eating here though. You’ll a need food and weed induced power nap.
No, we didn’t spell that wrong. The bright yellow and black truck is really named “StripChezze”. You say it like “strip cheese”.
Anyways, if you’re looking for a creative way to block your arteries, this is definitely it. You can get what they call “Daddy’s on a roll” which is two deep-fried egg rolls filled with mac and cheese.
It comes with a spicy kimchi sauce on the side. No, we couldn’t have made that up if we tried. Their website is always up to date with their location and if you’re having an event, they do private catering.
If none of those excite you or aren’t close enough, here are some other places to stick in your phone’s GPS.
- Dirt Dog
- Phat Snacks
- JoJo’s Jerky
- New York Pretzel
Now, with the restaurants, food trucks, and honorable mentions above, you should have no reason to buy those stale, expensive minibar snacks.
You’re better than that – and you deserve more.
