Best for Dining alone - Expert review of Carnegie Delicatessen

The Vegas outpost of New York's famous deli.

All too often, I feel like all that's available to eat on the Strip are burgers. When I'm need of a healthy food fix, I head straight for Carnegie's. No, it doesn't have to be healthy (portion sizes are gigantic and the cakes are incredible) but for cheap but nutritious food, this is a good bet.  

Food and drink: 

The gamut of deli food, from matzo balls and chicken soup to sandwiches overflowing with pastrami and giant hunks of cheesecake. And it's all absolutely delicious.

Recommended dishes: 

I always, without fail, get the chicken soup with a matzo ball in it. Just the thing for a healthy pick me up.

Ambience: 

It's half take away, half eat in so it's pretty frenetic but once you get a seat you won't be bothered to move on. And because it's so transient, it's actually an excellent place to dine alone - you won't feel out of place here.

Service: 

It's not particularly friendly by Vegas standards but that's because staff are rushed off their feet. On the plus side, it's lightning quick.

Location: 

In the Mirage, just off the entrance to the Strip.

Price advice: 

Giant sandwiches and burgers from US$10.99. Soup is US$4.75.
