Went to Aladdin's for the first time last weekend. Was unreal. Would gladly eat there multiple times a week.

I like how you can't take the time to spell out "great", but you spell out "gigantor"

I've been wanting to try the little place on 21st street in the Strip, I think it says its Peruvian, which as an uncultured American I think means the same as Mexican.


It's not, but it's really good.

I know it's not authentic Mexican, more like Cali-Mex, but I like Round Corner Cantina. I like their fish tacos and pork belly tacos.

In regards to El Campesino, I like their food, but I've found it to be somewhat inconsistent at times. For instance, my sister's bday is roughly 3 weeks before mine, so we went there twice in that time span.

I had the same dish both ttimes. The first time it was amazing... The second time, it was completely different and just ok.

I was walking through downtown the other day and I realized that McDonalds is the only traditional fast food place still open. Every other chain like that is gone.

Yeah there is one on Liberty Ave. Tons of subways, I mean they should still be considered fast food.

All the Wendys are gone, as is Arbys.

The Quiznos shops are all gone too - I think every one in the area is.

I guess they're all being pushed out by places like Qdoba, Moes, and Jimmy Johns?
