Living in student apartments is often a first big step into full adulthood, including the need to take care of yourself.
6 Fabulous Cheap Eats in Las Vegas Under $10
University of Nevada students looking for cheap eats in Las Vegas have found some delectable spots to dine for a reasonable price.
Here are a few Las Vegas restaurants you can try with dishes under $10.
Bajamar Seafood and Tacos is the perfect place for those who want to eat healthily without spending a fortune before next semester’s tuition is paid.
Students love Viva Las Arepas for traditional Venezuelan food that won’t break the bank. Choose from wood-fired meat arepas and empanadas for as little as $3.75. There are both savory and sweet options to choose from.
Another great option for inexpensive breakfast sandwiches is AmeriBrunch. If diners are extra hungry, try the double oven-baked biscuits with two eggs, cheese, gravy on top, and three whole sausage links.
For those with a hankering for spicy Thai food, there’s De Thai Kitchen near downtown Las Vegas, offering cheap eats like Pad Thai, Drunken Noodles, veggie egg rolls, and yellow curried rice dishes that delight even the pickiest eaters on a budget.
Bajamar Seafood and Tacos is the perfect place for those who want to eat healthily without spending a fortune before next semester’s tuition is paid. The taco of the month always changes, but for $6, students can enjoy a taco filled with carnitas, smoked marlin, cilantro, pickled onions, and topped with habanero mustard and guacamole.
Benny’s Smokin’ BBQ and Brews is a great hangout for college students who want their baby-back ribs and a good glass of whiskey for under $20. The huge BBQ brisket plate comes with sides of coleslaw, beans, and corn on the cob all for $10.99 if you are a member. We know we’re slightly over $10 here, but still a great deal! You get a slight discount by becoming one, but only those 21 and older can drink and dine.
When a sweet tooth just can’t be ignored, why not go for super-sized donuts and coffee at Donut Bar Vegas off of 6th Street? It’s been featured on The Ellen Show and the Food Network. Studying for a test on a sugar high can be fun. There’s no better place in Vegas to get double chocolate, two-layered donuts filled with cream, and topped with chocolate sprinkles.
As an added bonus, we wanted to offer one final option with a slightly higher price tag. Eat serves breakfast and lunch in downtown Las Vegas. Try the chicken on a ciabatta sandwich with fresh mozzarella, tomato, pesto, and baby greens for $15. It’s a slight splurge, but so worth it.
Student Housing Options that Don't Break the Bank
Another way to save money as a college student is finding a comfortable, affordable place to live while you get your higher education. You can even share an apartment with friends to make your dollars stretch even further. Echo 1055 is close to the restaurants listed and offers leasing opportunities for university students with studio, 2, 3, and 4-bedroom options. The complex is an excellent bang for your buck with outstanding amenities and proximity to your favorite, cheap places to dine, too.
One of the best parts of being in college is getting to travel to new places on breaks or for your college programs
November is one of the busiest months of the year for many college students, but there are current events taking place throughout the city of Las Vegas that you may want to be a part of to get the true local experience.
