Las Vegas is one of the few cities in the world that really never sleeps. Casinos don’t close and nightclubs go into the wee hours of the morning. Whether you’re a party animal not ready to crash or a casino worker working the late or overnight shift and in need of a bite at an odd hour Las Vegas has a solution for you.
Graveyard dining specials have become legendary in Las Vegas over the years. These late night dining specials are almost as famous as the old “$1.99 buffet” with one exception. You can still find Graveyard specials all over Las Vegas. They’re not offered everywhere like they used to be but you can still find a late night dining deal for less than $10 if you know where to look.
We’ve done the looking and here are 5 of the best Las Vegas Graveyard Specials you’re going to find in a casino.
Silverton (Sundance Grill) – There are a good amount of choices here so let’s start with the least expensive: If you just need a late night snack you can snag the All-American Sliders for .99 each. If you’re a hungrier you can grab the Wild Card Special for $2.95 (2 eggs, bacon or sausage, hash browns, toast) or the even larger option of Ham and Eggs for $3.95 (2 eggs, grilled ham, hash browns, toast).
Station Casinos (Grand Cafe) – There are 7 different casinos offering various overnight specials if you have a players club card (sign up here). The All-Nighter Skillet (2 eggs, hash browns, toast) is only $1.99, a Short Stack of pancakes or an order of Biscuits and Gravy are each also $1.99. You can step up your meals to a Classic Burger & Fries for $2.99 or 8 oz. New York Steak and Eggs for $5.99.
The Orleans (Courtyard Cafe) – While these are a little more expensive than some of the other options the late night specials at the Orleans are available for a longer period of time than most of the other Graveyard Specials between 10 P.M. to 7 A.M. on Mondays through Thursdays. You can choose from Southwestern Egg Rolls, Steak and Cheese Nachos or Potato Skins for $4.99 each.
South Point (Coronado Cafe) – The sheer number of Graveyard Specials here could fill up a lesser cafe’s entire menu. You’ll find a Cheeseburger, Biscuits and Gravy, Bacon and Eggs, Steak and Eggs and even a Pancake Sandwich (with ham and fried eggs) for under $4! The South Point is about a 10 minute taxi from Mandalay Bay during the overnight hours and these prices are worth the trek if you’re looking for a late night bargain.
Ellis Island (the Cafe) – Ellis Island is located right behind Bally’s on Koval Lane. Off the bat you should know that there are dining and beer specials here all day and night. You can pretty much eat a full meal for around $10 any time of day. However, Ellis Island’s location makes it the closest Graveyard Special to the Vegas Strip that you’ll find on this list. The amount of late night breakfast dishes under $5 is fantastic. You can choose from 2 or 3 Eggs Any Style with hash browns and toast, The Breakfast Special with scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, and bacon or sausage and Cinnamon Vanilla French Toast.
