The historic El Cortez Hotel & Casino is traditionally a locals' casino but is also conveniently located just minutes from Fremont Street. Local or tourist, if you're in the area, it's a great place to stop into for a bite. Like its famous façade, the dining options at El Cortez are decidedly old Vegas. If you want to dine like Bugsy did, then order the biggest steak on the menu. If you're looking for something more laid-back, grab a table in a leather-laden lounge with a long list of signature cocktails. A classic pizzeria is an obvious choice for family lunches or late-night gatherings.
