The Garden Court Buffet
At The Main Street Station Hotel
200 North Main Street
Las Vegas, NV.

The Garden Court Buffet has long been a favorite. All things considered: price, food, ambience, location etc. make this buffet one of the very best around.
“The all-you-can eat Garden Court Buffet is the ultimate in Las Vegas buffets. From the moment you step inside, you’ll enjoy the spacious surrounding with the vaulted ceilings and Victorian gingerbread decor. And the food is fabulous, too!”
“With seating for close to 500 guests, the Garden Court, is not only the largest buffet and truly the grandest in downtown, it has garnered many accolades in its short history. Repeatedly voted downtown’s best buffet, it’s been rated among the top five buffets in the nation.”

Food stations include: American, Southern, Southwestern, Pacific rim, Chinese, Mexican, Pizza and Pasta, Salad bar, Dessert bar and more.
Buffet prices are very friendly; for example, the “Seafood Galore Buffet” on Friday & Saturday nights is only $15.99, Mon-Fri breakfast – $5.99…

Several dozen ceiling fans, antique sideboards, “Victorian gingerbread decor,” and windows help make this room unique.

Lotus of Siam
In The Commercial Center
953 E. Sahara Ave.
Las Vegas, NV 89104
Tel. (702)735-3033

I vaguely recall reading in a Los Angeles restaurant magazine that Lotus Of Siam was one of the best Thai restaurants in North America. It must be a good Thai restaurant – Mayor Goodman was sitting at the next table the last time I was there. It was prime time on a Saturday night…”Of all the Gin joints“…Imagine the Mayor dining in a Strip-mall restaurant on a Saturday night given the food choices Las Vegas provides…

In a “real-old-vegas-seen-better-days” mall off Sahara Avenue, The Lotus of Siam serves the Mayor of Las Vegas and other happy customers Thai food and other Asian specials..My choice is usually Pad Thai.
I found the following information from CityGuide. It is so informative, I thought I’d include it…
“Amidst the karaoke bars and Mexican eateries in the Commercial Center lies Lotus of Siam, one of those jewels that regulars adore but hesitate to tell anyone about lest it get too popular. Voted “the best Thai restaurant in the United States” by Gourmet magazine, Lotus of Siam serves Issan-style Thai food, which is milder than most food from Thailand. The secret is blending each course with seasonings, including ginger, lemon grass, lime leaves, and hot peppers, to create varying degrees of sweet, sour, bitter and salty flavors.”

“The menu lists 131 dishes; some are tried-and-true, while other unusual items are influenced by the cultures of Laos and Cambodia. Favorites include tom kah kai (coconut infused soup), panang curry and of course, pad thai. Some of the more unusual dishes include nua dad dew (a very spicy beef jerky), nam kao tod (Thai sour sausage seasoned with ginger) and nua sao renu (sliced charbroiled beef atop a bed of sliced cabbage). Patrons should beware that these dishes are very spicy, so make sure to try the coconut ice cream and sticky rice — it’s guaranteed to cool off your mouth. — Jack Herrguth”

Denver Restaurant Visits: Annie’s Cafe, Big Papa’s BBQ, Pasquini’s Pizzeria, Pasta Jay’s, Paulie and Deanna, The Red Coral and Torres Mexican Food

First Visits:
Big Papa’s BBQ
6265 E. Evans Ave.
Denver, Colorado
80222 (303-300-4499)
Big Papa’s official website“…
“Love at first bite” It was the sauce that got me, so to speak. It was Maureen’s Memphis Sauce to be precise (there are four sauces to choose from: Suzy’s Carolina Sauce, Maureen’s Memphis Sauce, Heidi’s KC Sauce and Maggie’s Deep South Sauce.) We ordered St. Louis Style Ribs (9 bones of smoked St. Louis Style Ribs) with Cole Slaw & BBQ Beans ($15.29.) I actually had a trancendant-type expierience after a few bites. It could have been the ribs with the Memphis sauce or it could have been the BBQ beans which are equally outstanding ( huge chunks of meat swimming with the beans in an unforgettable sauce…Other entrees include: Baby Back Ribs, Beef Back Ribs, Bison Ribs, Sliced Beef Brisket, Pulled Pork and more…Beer and Wine are available…Big Papa’s caters…The dining room is rather plain, not unlike a fast food place…That won’t keep me away, maybe I’ll just do take-out…Big Papa’s has a second location; click the website link for the address, the complete menu, catering and other information…

Paulie & Deanna Italian Restaurant 4
2099 Wadsworth Lakewood, CO
If one tries to find Paulie and Deanna’s on the web, one would think that there is no such place, however, the other evening I enjoyed one of the best Southern-Italian-red sauces that I’ve had in a while, so I know the restaurant exsists…It’s a small restaurant in a strip-mall on North Wadsworth Blvd. I had the sauce with a side of Homemade spaghetti noodles – big, thick spaghetti noodles with two meatballs, salad and bread…The pasta dish was preceded by the dinner salad with the house-dressing. The salad was fresh and chilled; the dressing was above par. The entree portion was huge, especially for the price: the complete dinner was around $8.00…The spaghetti dinner with regular noodles is a buck less. House wine is $4.00, other wines start at $5.00…Wine in carafes are available. Most basic Southern- Italian dishes are on the menu as well as sandwiches, pizza and more…Information for this restaurant is so elusive, I don’t have web-links for menu & other general information. Alas, I did not get a take-out menu nor even a matchbook…I guess I’ll have to return for the sauce – or the “gravy” as Paulie calls it, in his best Martin Scorsese flick voice…

Torres Mexican Food Restaurant in Denver
1597 S. Federal Blvd.
Denver, Colorado 80219 (303-934-8857)
Torres Mexican Food is an authentic Mexican cantina that serves the basic southwestern dishes: burritos, chile rellenos, enchiladas, tacos etc. as well as seafood dinner fare such as: Shrimp/Oyster cocktails, Shrimp Rancheros, Shrimp fajitas, Fresh oysters, Seafood soup, “Filete” Ranchero, Stripped bass, Tilapia…On my first visit, I had the Green Chile Plate ($6.95) which consisted of a large plate of green chile with big chunks of meat, rising like mountains in the Sea of Cortez, rice & beans and 2 large tortillas…The “regular” Margarita is small, however it is only about $3.75, so… The next step-up is $9.00 – that one is huge. Maybe there should be a mid-size Marg for about $5.00. Other brew prices are very reasonable. The restaurant is decorated like an Mexican coastal restaurant. The booths seem to be a notch higher in quality, so are the (table) chairs which are proudly emblazoned with the Torres name…Speaking of booths, take a booth in the lounge area; the lounge has a bunch of energy…This is a good discovery. Unless something happens to change my mind, this will be one of my favorite Mexican restaurants in Denver. This is a restaurant where one feels comfortable, accepted and welcome; there is no hoity-toity arrogance. There is a second location (in a Strip Mall) at 2049 Wadsworth Blvd…

Previously reviewed restaurants:

Annie’s Cafe

Denver, Colorado
Annie’s Cafe, since 1979, has offered comfort food and hospitality to the local Denver community.” Annie’s has been serving Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner all-the-while, however breakfast is the key word here: One of only a hand-full of really good breakfast cafes in Denver, Annie’s does it all and Annie’s does it right…From two egg breakfasts with meat, grilled potatoes and toast ($6.75) or French Toast ($5.50) to Huevos Rancheros ($7.25) as well as omelettes, bagels, pancakes, muffins and more, it’s all there…Click Annie’s website link for the complete menuAnnie’s leaves a jar of Peanut Butter on every table.

If you can’t wait, you don’t half to at Annie’s…Food quality and proportion size are above average. Beer and wine are available…Family friendly, Annie’s is loaded with old movie-posters, kid’s metal lunch boxes, toy bake-ovens etc…

Pasquini’s Pizzeria – Denver Highlands (opened – summer 2007)
2400 West 32nd Avenue at Zuni St.

Pasquini’s is a long time favorite Denver restaurant…This location is new, but they have the same good food: NY Pizza, Pizzettas, Pastas, Calzones, Salads, Sandwiches, and more…This incarnation is another winner; the building is in an area that used to be Denver’s Little Italy, so it’s authentic…The restaurant is Yuppie heaven with a Vespa on the wall, three different seating areas, a full bar and lots of energy…Click the Las Vegas Buffet Club web link for the page on Pasquini’s or click the Pasquini’s Website link to go directly to their site…

Pizza D’ Oro in Costa Mesa, Ca. is still a bargain favorite…Unbelievable specials in this tiny strip-mall restaurant. Try a giant slice of NY Pizza, cut from a 30 inch pie…If you require hoity-toity, go elsewhere…If you want a basic red-sauce Southern-Italian dinner with red-wine, give Pizza D’ Oro a try (several locations in the area.) “This is an Italian restaurant for the working man.”

The Gypsy Den is one of my favorite places to hang-out in Southern California. I gravitate toward the Santa Ana location. It’s basically a coffee-house – with a patio, poetry-stage, up-right piano (Tom Waits took it for a spin – so I’ve heard,) old stuffed couches and chairs, lots of art, lamps and atmosphere…All meals are served. Beer and wine are available.

*Los Arcos in Rosarito, Mexico is not in California – Wait…it’s in Baja California-that’s California isn’t it? Anyway, we took a side trip into Mexico and stopped at this little Taco stand for a bite…The cook is crazy-at least he acts like he’s loco…

SAWDUST ART FESTIVAL in beautiful Laguna Beach, California

“Voted one of the top 5 art festivals in the country in 2005 by the readers of American Style Magazine,” the Sawdust Art Festival 2007 was favored with blue sky’s and California sunshine – at least when we attended (first week in August.)…Show Dates & Hours: Friday, June 29 – September 2, 2007; Open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day…Link to the Sawdust Festival’s official Website…”Welcome to the world-famous Sawdust Art Festival where visitors experience the artistic wonders of 200 Laguna Beach artists amidst towering eucalyptus trees and tranquil waterfalls within a three and half acre canyon setting. Since 1966 the Sawdust has drawn art enthusiasts looking for original artwork including: painting, ceramics, jewelry, photography, textile arts, wood and metal sculpture, hand blown and fused glass and even scrimshaw.” read more…This festival has been a favorite of mine since my gallery/store: “Steel and Stuff” was partially stocked with art & craft work from the Sawdust Festival; this was in the 70’s…

Central City, CO roadsign……….CENTRAL CITY, COLORADO……….Central City, CO

One person in our party wanted to drive up to the mountains and place a bet on the Preakness. Little did we know that the Colorado-mountain-gaming-towns of Central City and Black Hawk do not have Sports Books…If they did, the maximum bet would be $5.00. Anyway we had a nice drive up I-70 and finished with a “comped” buffet at
The Fortune Valley Hotel-Casino’s FLAVOURS BUFFET…Click link for buffet information…
The buffet was average by Las Vegas standards – Las Vegas standards are fairly high these days…The room is a long, clean and bright rectangle, which could use a few more booths; the buffet choices were minimal, but presented and prepared well, and for the most part tasty; the King Crab Legs and Peel & Eat Shrimp were absolutely (seawater) fresh…The staff were smalltown friendly…Fortune Valley has Hot Hot Super Jackpot Slots…These WMS slots have a “bit-of-a-feel” of an amusement park ride…
