Expertly displayed cuts of beef and pork rest behind the counter at Center Cut Meats. The staff uses their more than 25 years of experience processing meat to create not only traditional cuts, but spiced and prepared options that are ready to take home. They specialize in smokehouse cuts, deli meats, fresh seafood, and both brats and raw sausages. During the week, they put these proteins to use to create a daily lunch buffet. For three hours, they keep restocking the buffet with homestyle favorites such as beef stroganoff, enchiladas, and meatloaf, which pair with side items such as salad, soups, and meatballs.
The Life Time Turkey Day 5K jump-starts Thanksgiving celebrations with a healthy, full-body feast of exercise, with proceeds benefiting local food organizations. Starting on the world-famous Fremont Street, pavement stompers weave past the historic downtown vistas lining Las Vegas Boulevard, home to myriad celebrities, reality television shows, and retired slot machines. After coasting to a finish beneath the Fremont Street Experience, participants gather for a postrace party, where refreshments, music, and chances to win prizes from sponsors accompany huffs and puffs of accomplishment. Additionally, strollers are permitted during the race but must line up behind individual runners and must not be equipped with nitrous.
When Roger and Mary Dombrovski took over the Herges' meat market in 1975, they never could have predicted that their small family-owned butcher shop would still be going strong more than 30 years later and peddling their wursts far beyond the Foley city limits. The main order of business during their humble beginnings was processing sausages and preparing pizza toppings, but the Dombrovskis have expanded to include barbecue, organic, and halal meats to their lockers. They ship to home cooks, restaurants, and lazy wolves across the country, and provide an unconditional satisfaction guarantee with every order.
Athens Cafe is old-school, and that's not just in reference to the counter service. No, in this sense "old-school" means one of the most ancient civilizations in the world. The chefs at this casual fast-food stop prepare traditional Greek food, slowly roasting and slicing lamb before piling it into warm pita bread. Don't fret about choosing from the list of chicken, lamb, and seasoned beef kebabs—they're all good, and they're all served with a side of creamy hummus and a house salad.
The vittlesmiths at Ham's Sandwich Shop carefully craft gourmet deli sandwiches using fresh baked bread from the New French Bakery and succulent specialty meats. The menu finds its flagship in the unctuously mush-mouthed Godfather ($6.49)—Italian salami and ham tucked under a duvet of pepper jack cheese, garlic spread, and tart vinaigrette. The Texas beef brisket ($6.99) layers an ultra-thin cut of smoked beef brisket with tangy barbecue sauce and sweet red onions on a hoagie roll, and the fiery grilled Guillermo ($6.49) satisfies spice-connoisseurs with roast turkey, jalapeno bacon, habanero sauce, and pepper jack cheese on a chewy focaccia roll. For $2, add chips and a drink to any sandwich or create a decorative garnish of two origami dollar swans kissing. Able to whip up gourmet meals in fast food time, these deli denizens provide fast, friendly service in a casual atmosphere.
