If you are going to be spending any time visiting Henderson, Nevada, you are going to want to sample some of the various eateries that the city has to offer. Narrowing down your options among so many culinary delights is quite a task, so here are three suggestions to help you get started.
Your first thought when choosing a great place to eat would probably not be a buffet. However the Box Car Buffet is one that you should check out. It is located at the Railroad Pass Hotel and Casino, longest running one in the country. It features the absolute best buffet you’ll find in all of Nevada. Its menu changes daily and includes specialties from places like Italy, Mexico, China, and so much more. The slow roasted Prime Rib is to die for, though the shrimp scampi comes in a close second.
If sitting down to an authentic gourmet Italian dinner in a charming setting is more to your tastes, then stop over at the Pasta Shop. The name of this restaurant doesn’t truly convey how unique of a dining experience you’ll have when you pass through the front doors. David Alenik, the owner and the executive chef, served as personal chef to celebrities like Frank Sinatra in the past, and he still sells his pasta to the large hotels and restaurants in Las Vegas. He’ll treat you to original dishes of his creation, like Black Squid Pasta in a saffron cream sauce. Or you have the option to choose from sausages, meatballs, chicken, and vegetarian options from the menu. Just don’t forget to top it off with one of the excellent wines that they offer.
The health conscious will enjoy LYFE Kitchen. LYFE has as its goal to change the way we all see our food, particularly fast food. They prove that you can eat on the go and not sacrifice quality or nutrition. None of the options on their menu are over 600 calories, and they use only ingredients grown by local farmers. You won’t find any fried food, and you can be assured that they don’t even own a microwave. Everything is either roasted, sautéed, or steamed. There are plenty of gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian options to choose from among their sandwiches, wraps, salads, and soups. Rather than serving sugar-laden sodas with their meals, they offer LYFE water, fruit smoothies, fresh-squeezed juices, and beer and wine.
