Taste buds can easily turn into viciously passive-aggressive taste frenemies without proper attention. Keep your tongue from gossiping behind your back with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $45 worth of traditional British fare and drinks at Queen Victoria Pub, located in the Riviera Hotel and Casino.
With a menu bursting with the timeless tastes of the United Kingdom, Queen Victoria Pub sates grumbling hunger tanks 24 hours a day. Enliven jaded taste buds with a Toad in the Hole, which tucks British bangers into a baked bed of Yorkshire pudding ($11.75), or a helping of shepherd's pie, a mingling of minced beef and vegetables capped off with a fluffy beret of mashed potatoes ($10.25).
Salads, sandwiches, and soups also abound to sate lighter appetites, forkphobes, and diners with straws permanently sewn to their lips. Televised sports and live music keep eyes and ears occupied while taste buds tackle each bite, preventing them from rebelliously leaving the body to do cannonballs in their favorite beer and ale selections.
Queen Victoria Pub
Queen Victoria Pub dishes up traditional British sandwiches, pies, and entrees 24 hours a day. Secret-recipe beer batter envelops crispy fried fish paired with British chips, and bangers join mashed potatoes and baked beans for teatime and soft-spoken discussions in which the word “balderdash” is politely thrown around. Savory pies are baked in-house with combos such as meat and mushrooms, steak and kidney, and cheese and onion beneath tender puff-pastry crusts. Whether sidled up to the bar or nestled in their seats, guests quench thirsts with 20-ounce brews such as London Pride, Harp, and Smithwick's while surveying British sports on the televisions and absorbing sound waves emitted by the resident Beatles cover-band, Revolver, who plays every Wednesday through Saturday from 9 p.m. to midnight.
