Southern
Visitors to the Las Vegas Strip in the mood for authentic southern cuisine need look no further than the just-like-Grandma-used-to-make dishes of Executive Chef Mario Nichols, a transplant from the kitchen of this restaurant's North Carolina original location. Grandma is real, too: Nellie was the grandmother of Kevin Jonas, Sr., "Papa Jonas" to the fans of his famous sons, and the founder of Nellie's. The food - including freshmade biscuits, shrimp and grits, and chicken and dumplins, shares top billing with Nellie's hospitality and decor. The gorgeous venue, located within the District of MGM Grand, opposite the Grand Garden Arena and close to Wet Republic, Top Golf and the MGM convention center, is open 7 days for lunch and dinner. As you would expect from a Jonas Family Experience, there is free entertainment nightly.

    Our food was good but not excellent. The biscuits were over-baked. The decor in no way felt like a 'southern kitchen.' It was more like 'industrial sports bar.' The music was ridiculously loud to the point where we couldn't hear each other for conversation. The service was solid. But overall, we won't be returning anytime soon. The experience was a disappointment.

    We ordered 3 of the Fried Chicken dinners, an order of Chicken & Waffles, Chicken Fried Steak, and a Cheeseburger. The seasoning of the chicken was inconsistent. No piece tasted the same. They do not understand the concept of properly cooking a drumstick because all of them had red veins and pink meat even when they tried to replace them to correct it. The green beans lacked flavor, but the drunken greens and mac and cheese were good. The waffles were untouched because the undercooked chicken was a turnoff for one of our guests. The Chicken Fried Steak was a hit. The mashed potatoes tasted good especially when mixed with the gravy from the steak. I don't feel like we would try it again because for over $220, we felt like we shouldn't have been served undercooked chicken twice. 5/10
