THIS WEEK: 54 YEARS OLD, YET FRESH AS CAN BE
Eh? Talking here about the legendary shrimp cocktail at Golden Gate in downtown Las Vegas.
Though, in fact, it’s quite the youngster compared to the property itself which is now 107. Its Du-Pars restaurant where the famous and so satisfying dish is served has also been honored as the place for “Best Pie in Las Vegas” and ”Best Pancakes in America.”
But back to that shrimp. It’s notable, for one thing, for its generous size, and for another for its plump fresher than fresh shrimp that’s been cooked just right, and as well for its just perfect kicky cocktail sauce.
For years it was sold for 99 cents and now has crept “all the way up” to $2.99. That is easily one of the top – and tastiest – deals in town.

Pancake House // Du-par’s. Located inside the Golden Gate Hotel & Casino, this is a classic diner that also happens to have exquisite pancakes. Go for breakfast. Go for lunch. Go for dinner. Just don’t forget to order a stack or two. They are served 24/7 and are unreal. 1 Fremont St., du-pars.com
