Four Queens - Magnolia's Veranda 2009

Magnolia's Veranda cafe at Four Queens. We hated it. We had free meals here, so since it's free, we just ate here, even though we know we don't like to eat here. But it's free!

Our waiter wasn't good. He was so slow. When we asked for real butter for the bread, well, I guess he forgot, he didn't bring us any.

We got our bread at 7:44PM, then we received salad and soup at 8:02PM, then we got ribs and seafood platter on 8:13PM. Then we realized he forgot to bring the baked potato for the ribs. Waited for the waiter for a while, told him, then received potato at 8:22PM.

For the taste, to me, everything tasted so fake, like from frozen bags, pre-made store bought, canned food. No flavor and dry.

Not so good bread, served with fake butter.

Minestrone for my seafood platter

Gravy for my mashed potato. It was awful and I don't need this much gravy.

Neptune Platter (broiled) $14.95
salmon, crab cake, shrimp, served with remoulade sauce

There were 2 sauces, remoulade sauce and lemon caper sauce. The sauce was AWFUL, mashed potato was probably from pre-made bag (we couldn't eat), crab cake wasn't good at all. The salmon also had no flavor, but I just ate it anyway with no sauce because salmon is good for wrinkles and other things (even I don't have wrinkles yet, I am getting older!).

baked potato for ribs

salad for ribs
I was wondering why the dressing is so orange/yellow? This dressing must have so much corn syrup and other bad stuff in it.

Barbequed baby back ribs (full) $16.95
comes with baked beans, salad or soup, potato, vegetable of the day

Rampart Casino - Promenade Cafe

Promenade Cafe at Rampart Casino in Las Vegas. It's located in Summerlin, about 20 min from the Strip. It's really close to the Suncoast Casino.

This was back in December 2009, but they still had their midnight specials. I ordered $3.21 special. If you come here 5am-8am, they have $1.99 specials (check their website). The food here isn't amazing, but you can get food for $2-3. They also have $7.99 3-course meal deals and that's also pretty good. I mean, my husband's burger alone cost $7.99! So if you are near here, and you are on a budget, try this place.

All our food was total $12. Not bad, huh?

Old Vegas Breakfast Special (toast, 2 eggs, steak or ham, breakfast potatoes)$3.21

Steak was tough, but hey, all this food was $3!

My husband ordered this and he didn't like it at all.

Las Vegas Sunset Station Casino - Feast Buffet

Feast Buffet at Sunset Station. Again, we received 2 free buffet coupons. This was the dinner buffet and $16.99 per person. Compared with Santa Fe Station buffet, I think this one was a little bit better. The selection of the food is very similar. Both places need to work more for dessert. Also they need to make sure nothing is so dried out.

Chinese plate. Shrimp, eggplant, bok choy, fried rice, salmon, steamed bun, sesame ball, egg foo y.

You not gonna believe it, but the steamed bun was actually good, the dough was very soft and not dry at all (at least when we were here). Not sure about the inside, but at least the bun itself tasted just like the taste should be.

Not so delicious wonton soup

Collard greens, potato salad, candied yam, corn, Spanish rice, stuffing, and churros. Yes, they've got churros!

Mushrooms, crab cake (not good), salmon (good) and chioppino.

Hamburger (not so dry like Santa Fe Station), taquito, tamale

egg drop soup (not good), frozen yogurt, canned fruits

curry flavor noodle, pad Thai, Chinese noodle

spaghetti, pizza, roasted garlic, sausage

This pizza actually looks better than Domino's.


desserts (none of them were good)

Try soft serve!
