Before heading to The Las Vegas Motor Speedway across the street, many people, including famous race car drivers, stop by for comfort food classics at Mo's Race Day Cafe. The brunch and lunch spot specializes in American fare served with a slight Asian influence. Chefs cook up dishes ranging from chicken cordon bleu to chicken curry and Asian chicken salad with a lime cilantro vinaigrette, tempting diners to do the opposite of the race car drivers who visit: go slowly, savor the moment, and use their blinker when changing tables. Another tempting treat is one of Mo's Race Day Cafe's most popular items—Thai tea, which comes topped with a pillowy dollop of whipped cream.

Ingredient-rich sandwiches commandeer plate space during lunch, including the Marin, stuffed with roast beef, black-forest ham, and horseradish ($7.95), and the Burns and Allen ($7.25), planting avocado next to soy baco-bits and sprouts to cultivate a gourmet, meat-free garden. While sipping on fresh and fruity smoothies such as the Peach Pizazz ($5.45 for 16 oz.), diners can surf the web using Coffee Pub's free WiFi and the computer mouse with the strongest abdominals.
