Are you looking for Bargain Beer at the Flamingo
If you like bagels, head to Seattle’s Best inside Bills, but you’ll have to arrive early as they sell out quickly. For bargain beer, the bar in the back of Bills always has $1 draft beer that can be a hit or miss, but for a buck it’s well worth it.
Discount Prime Rib at Flamingo?
The Flamingo also has a great poker room for those who like to try their hand, and the $14.99 prime rib special at Steakhouse 46 is a true find. This low-key steakhouse has excellent food at a bargain price as well as outstanding service and is highly recommended.
