Breakfast 24/7

Palace Station's Grand Cafe Breakfast Skillet

I remember being in LA once and wanting to eat some breakfast at night. I wandered around for 45 minutes to only end up at Denny's. Now, I'm not saying that there aren't late night diners there, but I'm just telling you what happened. 

What I love about Las Vegas is that breakfast offerings are abundant here. You can safely assume, though, that a simple two egg breakfast can be upwards of $10 plus on central Strip properties. However, just off the Strip, down Sahara Ave is Palace Station, a well known locals casino. Twenty-four-seven, the $3.99 two egg breakfast with meat skillet is available. Now if you want to travel farther off-strip to other locals casinos, you will find even cheaper breakfasts, but I'll save that for another post. 

No doubt, it's a good price, but it doesn't stop the fact that I'm reminded of a time when Palace Station's cafe offered the same breakfast for $1.99. I was a total regular there back then. In back then, I mean about five years ago. 

My absolute favorite server was a Korean lady named Kang and she was thick accented and to the point. The conversation went like this: 

Me: I'll have the breakfast special.
Kang: Eggs!?
Me: Over medium
Kang: Meat!?
Me: Bacon well done
Kang: Toast!?

Me: Wheat 
Kang: OK!

Notice that there's the exclamation point before the question tone. It was like you better know the answers! I loved her, she cracked me up. Fast forward to a few years later and I ran into Kang - but she was now serving at another locals casino. It brought back memories!
