Breakfast buffets and 24-hour breakfast joints are a dime a dozen in Las Vegas. But some restaurants are known to bang out particularly killer omelets, fresh juices, and everything else you need to revive a hungover bachelor party crew.
Healthy living sites will tell you that electrolytes are the best way to get over a wild night, but as far as we’re concerned, the best thing you can do to fuel up and squash post-binge blues is ingest as much delicious grease as possible.
The five well-known spots below give you every reason to wake up before noon (or, like many diners, shamelessly stumble in without ever having gone to bed).
Hash House a go goPlaza Hotel & Casino 1 South Main Street, Las Vegas, NV 89101, United States
Considering Hash House a go go was conceptualized in San Diego (famed for its farm-to-table dining), the produce and ingredients are reputably high quality here. A true testament to the excellence of the food are the long lines you’ll likely experience—but trust us when we say it’s worth the wait.
It’s a total breakfast scene inside, one of the liveliest early-hour spots on the strip, with signature massive portions dished out at fairly affordable prices. Opt for Andy’s Famous Sage Fried Chicken Breast with maple reduction, two eggs, bacon, mashed potatoes and biscuits, or fan-favorite Corned Beef that is presented in a skillet.
EggslutCosmopolitan Eggslut, Las Vegas, NV, United States
Another major import, Eggslut recently arrived in Vegas by way of Los Angeles. The lines here can get just as long as its location in DTLA, and for good reason. The eggs are artfully and creatively made like little works of art (some egg dishes are even bruleed because that’s just how they roll).
Eggslut is a hip, casual spot for foodies/Instagrammers, and signature egg sandwiches can truly soak up the booze, like the bacon egg and cheese sandwich with chipotle ketchup on a brioche bun, which is basically more addictive than crack.
EatEat, Carson Avenue, Las Vegas, NV, United States
Eat isn’t just a notable breakfast joint; it’s considered one of the best restaurants in Downtown Las Vegas (don’t worry that you’ll have to leave the Strip: there’s loads to do down here). The casual space gets tons of sunlight (a rarity for a restaurant in Vegas), with an eclectic menu that focuses on elevated comfort food prepared with sustainable and organic ingredients. The innovative dishes by Natalie Young are on par with any Top Chef contestant (think thoughtful dishes like cinnamon biscuits, huevos motulenos, truffled egg sandwich with wild mushrooms and bacon) at reasonable, off-the-strip prices.
Bardot BrasserieAria 3730 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
There’s nothing like a rich, classy French meal to start your Vegas day, and Bardot at Aria is one of the most upscale brunch spots on the strip. Celebrity chef Michael Mina’s stylish French brasserie, Bardot is as glammed as out as you would expect for high-end French dining (i.e.: expensive glassware, waiters in suits), and classic French cuisine with a modern twist is served up hot and heavy. In addition to a raw bar, the menu features fancy plates like Escargots Bardot and King Crab crepe, and a Fois Gras Parfait makes basic yogurt a masterpiece. This is where true foodies and gourmands congregate before noon for refined weekend brunch dishes in a posh environment, so expect a more buttoned-up dining experience (as in, lose the shades and flip-flops for now).
Bacchanal BuffetCaesar's Palace Bacchanal Buffet, South Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, NV, United States
While we recommend avoiding breakfast buffets at all cost, there’s one that is significantly better than others: Bacchanal Buffet at Caesar’s Palace, especially during its infamous weekend brunch. Bacchanal is not your ordinary buffet. First of all, it’s won an array of awards, like “Best Buffet,” not only in Vegas (according to USA Today), but in all of America (according to The New York Post), and it’s even made a name for itself with its Chicken and Waffles and Red Velvet Pancakes. Second: it’s huge. 25,000 square feet to be exact. There are literally hundreds of items to choose from (basically any breakfast dish ever made), so you can load your plate to your heart’s desire. For all-you-can-eat at $40 (weekdays/ $50 weekends), it’s definitely worth it.
