A Stoner’s Guide to the Top 5 Best Munchies in Las Vegas
You blazed, and now, guess what (it’s inevitable), you caught a case of the munchies. “But I’m too high and lazy to move, I’ll probably just eat some chips and reese’s and take a nap”
If that comes out of your mouth, then we can’t be friends. You MUST take advantage of this rare opportunity. You have the munchies in one of the most delicious food capitals in the world! Congratulations grasshopper, you’re about to embark on a journey through flavortown.
Our inner foodie helped us prep a list of the top 5 best munchie spots in beautiful Sin City. You’re welcome in advance.
1. The Peppermill
2985 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
You may recognize this place from Casino starring Robert De Niro and Sharon Stone, but it isn’t the glamour that makes this classic Vegas diner so epic. It’s the old school Vegas vibe, neon lights, friendly service, creative cocktails and outstanding diner grub that makes The Peppermill a MUST for local stoners and tourists alike.
The restaurant serves up a hefty menu ranging from basics like chicken wings and mozzarella sticks, to a flavorful Pineapple Express Burger and popular Roast Beef Sandwich. In the mood for breakfast 24 hours a day? The Peppermill has you covered. Menu prices range from $9.95 and up, and the portions are so large you could easily make one entrè a dinner for two.
The Peppermill Fireside Lounge (conveniently attached to the main restaurant) features a chill ambiance that evokes 80s Vegas nostalgia. Think kicked back vibe, Gin martini and 80’s classic music videos. Oh yeah. The lounge is famous for it’s fire pit that sits over water – so if you have the opportunity to snag a spot by the pit, grab it!
Happy Hour: Everyday from 3pm-6pm and 9pm-11pm offering cheap eats and cocktails starting at $3.50 and up.
2. El Dorado Cantina
3025 Sammy Davis Jr Dr, Las Vegas, NV 89109
If you love burritos as much as you love a good lap dance, we found your nirvana. At first glance this spot may scare some away given the massive strip club it is attached to (Sapphire, that is). Don’t judge a book by it’s cover or you’ll surely be missing out. El Dorado Cantina offers authentic mexican cuisine with healthy high quality ingredients (we’re talking non-GMO, all organic, the best of the best).
And who doesn’t love to get high and enjoy a taco or seven? The menu offers all the typicals you’ll find at a Mexican eatery like taquitos, nachos, quesadillas, table side guac, Mexican corn on the cob, salads and so much more. It won’t break the bank either, with meals starting at $10 and a strong happy hour twice a day. Once your dry mouth sets in, you absolutely need to have one of their made-from-scratch cocktails. Everything from the house made margaritas to the sangria is made from scratch, and all without that basic b**** sweet and sour or artificial flavors.
Conveniently located just off the strip and open 24 hours, El Dorado Cantina is a great place to indulge – whether you’re looking for a strip tease and a taquito or just a chill spot to catch up with friends. Stoner approved.
Happy Hour: Every day 4pm-6pm and 12am-2am offering $7 appetisers, 50% off well drinks, $5 domestic beers and $7 house margaritas.
If we didn’t include In-N-Out in our stoners guide to the best munchies, we would fire ourselves. In-N-Out has been a stoners staple since it opened in 1948. Offering an simple yet perfected menu that includes burgers, fries and shakes, we can’t imagine why anyone wouldn’t want to go here at least once a week. You can dine in or drive-thru (or kindly ask your uber driver to drive-thru), and most of the ten locations around Vegas are open until 1am. If you’re not familiar with the term “animal style”, then get ready to be mind-blown. Animal Style is In-N-Out code for having your burger or fries drenched in signature sauce, cheese and grilled onions. For those carb-conscious stoners out there, they even offer a protein burger which substitutes the bun for lettuce. Booya.
All in all, you can’t go wrong here considering you’ll leave feeling well-fed for $10 or less.
4. Born and Raised
-7260 S Cimarron Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89113 (open 24/7)
-10050 S Eastern ave, Henderson NV, 89052 (open 24/7)
-3641 Las Vegas Blvd S (In the Grand Bazaar Shops) Las Vegas, NV 89109
If you haven’t heard of this place yet, well friends, today you hit the munchie jackpot. This local eatery was created by locals and promotes a laid back atmosphere with trendy decor and giant photos from the movie Fear and Loathing on the walls. They offer up a ton of shareable appetizers ranging from beef and chicken sliders to zucchini fries with chipotle sauce, fruity pebble french toast, deep fried oreo cookies, pretzel bites and award winning wings. If you’re into sports betting, this bar is right up your alley with huge flat screens playing every game you can imagine; you’ll definitely be entertained.
If you’re the type to get high and have a case of the never ending munchies, you’re in luck! Born and Raised has a famous food challenge called The Bar Gamble and this challenge was built to be beat by a stoner. The Gamble consists of eating 15 sliders (of your choice) with a pound of signature anchor fries smothered in hot buffalo sauce and bleu cheese dressing. To win the title, which includes a free t-shirt and the meal being comped, you must eat everything in an hour or less. Fail and you’re left with a whooping $75 bill. Sixty people tried The Gamble with only seven people overcoming the challenge. Are you number 8?
Born and Raised has three locations around Vegas so no matter what side of town you’re on, whether locally or staying on the strip, they’ve got you covered.
Happy Hour: Mon-Fri 3pm-6pm. $3-$4 drafts, $4 well drinks and plenty of $5 appetisers to choose from.
5. Cornish Pasty
10 E Charleston Blvd, Las Vegas NV, 89104
Pizza pockets are a major food group in stonerville, there’s no denying that. Picture a gourmet pizza pocket with a warm flaky crust and hundreds of different filling combinations – that’s a Pasty! With 4.5 stars and over 600 reviews on Yelp, Cornish Pasty sets the bar high when it comes to savory munchies. The originated in Britain in the 1900’s when miners wives would bake Pasties (one side sweet and the other savory) for their husbands working long shifts and in need of a convenient but tasty lunch. The Cornish Pasty offers all different types of pasties from their most memorable on the menu: “The Oggie” stuffed with steak, potatoes, onion and rutabaga (with red wine gravy on the side); the Meatball stuffed with homemade meatballs, marinara, fresh mozzarella and basil; or the classic Chicken Pot Pie pasty. They even offer over twelve vegetarian options for all those plant eaters out there.
The Cornish Pasty doesn’t play when it comes to sides. Their creative side dishes include meatballs wrapped in bacon (it’s a real thing people), broccoli and cauliflower cheese bake, and hand cut oven baked chips served with garlic or jalapeno aioli (omg). Side dishes range from $2.50 – $4.25 and the pasties average $10 a pop.
The interior gives off a vintage rustic vibe with an open ceiling revealing wood paneling, exposed piping, and faded brick. They also have some sweet games to keep you entertained while waiting for your food, including two pools tables and a bar top shuffleboard game. With a prime location in Downtown Las Vegas’ Arts District, the Cornish Pasty deservedly takes a spot on our Sin City munchie list.
Happy Hour: Everyday from 3pm-6pm and all day on Sunday’s. $1 off drafts and cocktails—no food specials.
