Local's Guide to Las Vegas

Overview

Quote:
There is a new monorail being built that should open in about 10 months. It will connect with the Bally's station and go to the Las Vegas Hilton and back by the Statsosphere and back to Bally's!

Quick Tips:

If you are traveling with children, remember the pools close at the major hotels very early, some as early as 6pm!

Best Way To Get Around:

Monorail from MGM Grand to Bally's and Mandalay Bay to Excaliber. Walk or drive. Taxis scare the life from you unless you are drinking - then please take a taxi!

I found the place extremely dirty. When bussers bussed a table they just pushed paper and food bits directly onto the floor. The bathroom door handle had a large amount of dried food on it. My husband and I had the fajitas, which were really good. My niece had the spaghetti, which she said was good and was a large portion, but no garlic bread. Menu was limited choices and print was small(take glasses). Played music videos and movie memoribilia mounted onto walls throughout the cafe. Tables were small but other than cleanliness, I would eat there again.
