You have to decide if you want GOOD food, or CHEAP food. Some of the best restaurants in America are there on the strip. Haven't found them to be cheap, though.

We used to go often, but has been several years since our last trip. Most all larger casinos on the strip and the casinos downtown have good buffets with lots of variety. Used to be partial to the Golden Nugget buffet downtown as they had all you could eat shrimp. When we first started going the typical buffet was $1.99/breakfast, $2.99/lunch, and $3.99/dinner. No more. Prices are much higher, but still cheaper than most restaurants on the strip unless you want fast food.

Used to get an after hours steak dinner (good steak, baked potato, salad, rolls) at Binion’s downtown for $2.99.

Been a few years since I was there last, but circus circus had a very good steakhouse restaurant where you could get great steaks at moderate prices.

The Peppermill (across from the Stratosphere) is a classic and a must!
It is relatively affordable, eating in Vegas isn't cheap.

X2 Golden Nugget Buffet. It is always good.

Some of the older hotels downtown still have specials. No specific recommendations, just walk around and see what you find.

we like the buffets, but we eat a late lunch to get the cheaper price for what is basically the same food they will serve at supper.
The past few years, we've been staying out at Railroad Pass Casino, in their parking lot, and eating there. They have a buffet..just search RR Pass Casino buffet and you will find the prices...different prices for prime rib night or seafood night, etc.

Seems like it was long time ago that you visited. Those are 1980s prices.

The cheap is all but gone. The one consistency in Las Vegas is the Casinos are going to go where the money is. At one time it was the Gambler. That was when the price of everything else was between free and nearly free. Then the non gambling crowd caught on to the bargains for lodging, food and entertainment and the casinos started housing and feeding people who weren't gambling, so that went away. The next reincarnation was family fun. Thankfully, that didn't last too long. Within a decade or so it was gone. Next came the nightclubs and pool parties. Brought a lot of people, but didn't fill the coffers with cash. Today it is entertainment at full prices. The hotels, the restaurants, the shows and everything else are top dollar. The hotels tack on $30 to $50 "resort fees" on top of the room rate. The top shows are $100+ per seat. If you are a big player, everything can be comped, but don't expect to find a good steak and lobster dinner for $10 on the strip. You can still find a few of those in the way off the beaten path, tired and old properties, but it won't be fine dining at prime hours.

Yeah, that’s when we first started going. And you could actually walk back and forth across Las Vegas Blvd without going to a traffic light protected crosswalk. [emoticon]

All that changed a lot by our later trips.
