2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There's a few fast food chains nearby, and while hours and costs are fine, there are very few truly healthy options available.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: You are in the middle of Las Vegas. You can find almost any kind of food you want within a 10 mi radius, though it might get expensive.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Living in Vegas means tons of options for whatever we would like 24 hours a day 7 days a week

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: It's mostly chain restaurants and fast food. I've just been there one semester, but none of my favorite restaurants are close.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The distance to great spots is fairly acceptable

If it isn't the best place on the planet for food, then Las Vegas is certainly in the top three. Vegas is a hotbed for master chefs who are out to prove their worth to whoever is willing to taste. Vegas cuisine is the contemporary New York and San Francisco combined, forming an exciting atmosphere for any person with difficult taste buds to please. Wolfgang Puck, Michael Mina, and Cindy Hutsun are just three of the many stars you can find cooking up a storm at the hotels.

For those who don't have money to burn, there are still many decent places to eat. Like any city, Las Vegas has franchise restaurants like Buca di Beppo and Buffalo Wild WIngs, as well as local restaurants that can be good alternatives to hotel fine dining, but for half the price. The city is also full of cheap eats, where $10 will fill both you and a friend for the rest of the day. There are many places near campus to grab a bite. Fast food joints line the street across from UNLV's east side, and many other restaurants are scattered all around the school. Chinese food, seafood, Mexican food, and Greek food are only some of the choices in close proximity to UNLV. The Freakin' Frog is great for beer lovers: they offer more than 600 beers, many that you can't get anywhere else in Nevada.
