    Benzee, from past posts here I will stick to my guns. The best hot dog I ever had in Vegas was a Vienna Beef Chicago Style Dog, from the hot dog cart at the sports book, only served during the day... at the Gold Coast. I only hope they are still serving them. Bring your wallet though... they are 99c each! And, don't forget to ask for the celery salt. :~)

    It's just a short walk from the Rio.

        Hey Benzee,
        I was at the Planet Hollywood Casino in March '08 and they were supposed to be opening a Pink's hot dogs in the casino.  Website says coming in 2009, so who knows.  Enjoy!!

            Kenny... it's a Nathan's. I had a better Nathan's from a vendor at the tram exit. I heard he was... not there anymore, so sad.

            I have had a few dozen "slots" dogs. If your broke and hungry... it's a great deal. I only hope I am not that broke again. But... if you have never had one, do it! Chase it w/ a... not so bad... 99c margarita , or two, at the Slots. After a few of those you will, hmm... not sure what you will do? Be real careful in Vegas! :~)

                    Hi again, Benzee,
                    You may want to also check out the message boards on the Las Vegas Review Journal.   Go to www.lvrj.com.
                    (unforunately the "eforums" are buried inside the "news" feature, so just click the "news" thingee)
                    VERY active forums, including a "best of Las Vegas" dining, and other restaurant forums. You may even want to post a fresh thread, asking about those hot dogs and steaks..
                     
                    That VIENNA beef brand seems to be popular out west, including Las Vegas..
                     
                    Ellis Island Casino is a dumpy, smokey, locals place, but many love their cheap steak specials , including the "off the menu" filet cut sirloin....
                    been there a few times, did'nt love it,  JMO...
                    but I'd still go back and try it again..
                     
                    have fun , and can't wait to hear your findings!

                      Consession... how do you find that trailer?

                      CSD, those 99c Chicago dogs are a loss leader. I bet it cost the Gold Coast way way more than that to make, and sell, them. Kinda neat though cause it's a hot dog cart... inside a casino.

                        most of the food courts in the bigger casinos have at least 1 hot dog place, and in good weather there are carts out on the streets. nathans, vienna beef and sabretts are the typical brands available around las vegas.

                            Hello everyone ,

                            Back from Vegas and put in a little trip report in that section . the best dog I had by far was the recomendation of Papa Joe , the Gold Coast Sports Book Hot Dog Cart Dog .
                            Able to eat it because I had been loosened up week prior to the trip because of tightness in band and baby!!!!! it was fantastic .

                            Thanks all for the suggestions and I highly recomend the Gold Coast Dog , worth a trip from the strip too .
                            Take the Harrahs shuttle to Rio and walk across the street to Gold Coast .
                            Good gambling  also compared to the strip as its a locals casino

                              Glad you liked the dog Benzee. To bad they had to go up on the price! What is it now... $1.29?

                                    Bill's Gambling Hall has a good value 99 cent dog at a cart inside their small casino.  Plump and spicey , and a bit small. No sauerkraut was offered unless I missed it. Only toppings were diced red onions , mustard and relish. The hall is next to the Flamingo.
