Fremont Street Experience
| Leinani Shak Photography

Don’t think of the Fremont Street Experience as just characters trying to pose with tourists for cash, yard-long beers, and free concerts during the summer. No, the canopied Fremont Street portion contains some of the oldest casinos in Las Vegas, including the Four Queens, Binion’s Gambling Hall, Main Street Station, the Golden Nugget, the D Las Vegas, the Plaza, the California, and the Downtown Grand along with newcomer Circa. Inside these grand dames of Las Vegas, diners can find pizza and pasta, a new twist on classic breakfast dishes such as pancakes and multiple kinds of eggs Benedicts, Asian cuisine of all types, specialties from Hawai’i, and more. Whether it’s craft beers and cheesy nachos at 1 a.m., a quality steak or juicy prime rib, or even fresh Ahi poke, these places near or on the Fremont Street Experience have it.
