For 30 years, the griddle gracers at Farmer Boys have lured hungry patrons in with made-to-order burgers, sandwiches, breakfasts, and the jaunty clanging of a real farmhouse bell. On the farmer's burger, a seeded bun wrangles two quarter-pound beef patties, and american cheese and thousand-island dressing trap renegade lettuce, tomato, dill pickles, avocado, and bacon in an engineering feat never before seen atop a regulation-sized bun ($5.49). Eschew prescribed meal options with a breakfast entree at any hour of the day, such as the breakfast burrito with chili, a flour inner-tube encasing eggs, hash browns, chili, and american cheese ($5.39). Salads such as the chicken barbecue ranch salad ($6.99) delectably sate lighter appetites, and the Reese's peanut-butter-cup milkshake renders the beloved candy drinkable at last ($3.59+).
When the neon lights illuminate the midnight sky of Las Vegas, the cooks at Monte's Pizza Restaurant are still hard at work. They dart about their kitchen, checking on saucepans of marinara and bubbling pots of angel hair pasta before showering dough in creamy ricotta cheese, fresh basil, and plump sausages and loading pies into fiery ovens. Others layer crusty rolls with meatballs, steak, and salami before turning their attention to juicy slabs of baby back ribs sizzling on grills. Throughout the week, this kitchen staff keeps late hours, making its restaurant a popular spot for late-night carousers or sleepwalkers dreaming of enchanted meatballs that will grant them eternal beauty.
Voted Best Soul Food Restaurant in 2010 by the Las Vegas Review Journal, EllaEm's Soul Food serves delectable down-home cooking concocted from time-honored family recipes. Sip a sweet tea ($2), while eyeballing the menu that teems with soul food classics from crispy fried chicken ($6.99) to grilled, seasoned catfish ($11.99), and slices of sweet-potato pie ($2.50). Drown mealtime sorrows with the smothered chicken baked to criminal perfection with Granny's special seasoning and a delicious gravy cover-up ($9.99), while the red snapper fillet ($11.99) is equally arresting when grilled, fried, or smuggled into a sandwich ($9). All of EllaEm's entrees come with warm cornbread and a trio of sides, such as collard greens, mac 'n' cheese, or fried cabbage, while those refusing to let rice and gravy play a supporting role can take home a large-sized side to eat or blow kisses at ($11). End your gastronomic voyage with a demurely decadent dish of peach cobbler ($3), or a cup of piping hot java ($2), which provides similar stomach soothing powers, but is less adept at fixing your shoes.

Nosh & Swig's menu is so extensive it requires eight separate categories: beef, pork, chicken, fish, garden, cheese, sweets, and drinks. Executive chef Steve Piamchuntar draws upon more than 12 years of culinary experience to assemble these visually arresting small plates whose flavors are inspired by an array of modern cuisines. Honey-miso glazes coat skewered Atlantic salmon, polenta cornbread and candied carrots accompany ribs braised with Dr Pepper, and toasted walnuts top an artichoke-heart and spinach salad named after Popeye. Beverages such as mint-and-basil lemonade complement meals, and a platter of assorted house ice creams concludes them.
Feasts unfold in a roomy dining area replete with high-top tables, tall chairs, and wraparound leather booths. The staff encourages guests to tack up their own autographed contribution to a dollar-plastered wall but definitely discourages them from gathering meal funds with a very quiet vacuum.
