Want a steak prepared the way you like it but without any big fuss? Whether you’re a cowboy or just regular folk, you can indulge your palate at these contemporary grills in downtown Las Vegas.
MCCALL’S HEARTLAND GRILL AT STRATOSPHERE LAS VEGAS
Boasting “comfort food at comfortable prices,” you’ll be warmly welcomed at McCall’s time and again. Be sure to bring your appetite because the menu offers hearty items, including the 18-ounce Bone-in New York Strip Steak and 18-ounce Chargrilled T-Bone Steak. Smaller steaks, like the 9-ounce House-cut Sirloin and 8-ounce Chargrilled Filet of Beef, are perfect for lighter eaters. Add on a side dish, such as the Creamed Spinach or Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes, and you’ve got a meal fit for royalty. stratospherehotel.com/Food-Drink/McCalls-Heartland-Grill

TRIPLE GEORGE GRILL
Located across from Downtown Grand at 201 N. 3rd St., this eatery is known for blending classic dining with the charm of a neighborhood restaurant. You’ll discover a wide selection of steaks and chops as well as seafood on the menu. One must-try is the Porcini Crusted Ribeye, which is a seared, 18-ounce bone-in rib eye seasoned in a house-made dry rub with porcini powder, garlic, red pepper flakes and sugar. The Drunken Hanger Steak and 3/4-pound George Burger (topped with cheese, shoestring onions, Portobello and bacon) are also to die for! triplegeorgegrill.com/dining
