The Breakfast and Lunch Joint: Eat at “eat”
Have you ever stumbled upon a place and wondered why you had never heard of it before? Eat is just one of those places. And from now on, anytime I’m in Vegas, I will be making this one of my stops for sure. Open for breakfast and lunch, eat is truly a hidden gem downtown. So hidden, in fact, you might drive right by and miss it. But that would be sad. Just sad.
Came in for lunch and it was pretty crowded, but our party of two was able to get seated right away. The atmosphere is casual and fun. Servers were all great as was the food. I had the DWBLT and it was to die for. And if you like ginger ale, be sure and order it here. It’s the best in the world. They shake the bottle up for you and pour it into your glass. James Bond style.
And there’s real ginger in the bottom of that bottle! Just take a look!
You can sit at the counter or a table. And even get a way cool black t shirt if interested. I meant to pick one up but forgot on my way out.
Parking is plentiful by meter all around the block. Oh and speaking of the block, one side benefit of eating at eat is you get a cool, sort of urban view of the El Cortez. Right through the chain link fence (see photo).
I guess I’m just easy to please.
Anyway, some places just find a way to get everything right. This is one of them. So please don’t miss this opportunity if you’re in town (or better yet, live there). You won’t be disappointed.
[Located at 707 Carson St, eat is easy to find. If you head out the El Cortez Fremont St entrance, hang your first left then your immediate right onto 7th St. Walk down about a block and you'll see eat off on your left hand corner. It's right at the intersection of Carson and 7th).
