7.5 Finding a nearby restaurant
Since there are so many restaurants in Las Vegas, it is difficult to say which is recommended. Everyone seems to have their own favorites. But there are some web sites that rank restaurants based on ratings by people who have eaten there.
A word of caution, however. New restaurants are always coming ...and some change location or go out of business ...sometimes a website may not be aware of the change. Once you have selected a restaurant, it is a good idea to give them a call and make your reservation so there will be no surprises once to get to Sin City.
