Are you talking about Binion's in Las Vegas, which used to be called Binion's Horseshoe Casino? Ugh I walked inside there twice on my past Las Vegas trip(once because it was so damn cold, and I was taking some nighttime pics of the neon signage outside those casinos on my February 2019 Las Vegas trip), and sadly to say that casino was a DUMP inside. It's also a really bad sign if you enter from the back entrance(kitty corner away from California Casino), that you see all these out of order slot machines freely stored in that area closely next to each other. I'm sure once upon a time Binion's used to be much nicer(in the Binion's Horseshoe days), but it no longer is now sadly. Also it's a bad sign if the hotel tower is abandoned, and after I came back from Las Vegas, I saw a walkthrough video of someone sneaking up to one of the abandoned hotel floors! That hotel tower was originally part of The Mint btw, before Binion's Horseshoe expanded into where The Mint once was around 1988. Anyway, enjoy this vid if you're curious:

I was talking about Binion's STEAKHOUSE. That was the question. A steakhouse was mentioned and there is one at Binions which has been around a long time. I was not talking about a casino. The thread is on restaurants is it not?

Another good steakhouse in Vegas is "The Steakhouse" in the Circus Circus casino which is also a DUMP but the restaurant is very good. It seems you can't judge a book by its cover, at least not for restaurants.

I used to go to Ken's on Boylston Street when visiting a friend who went to Emerson College. It was the Jewish deli in that area (Copley Square/Back Bay) and era (early 1970s). I would order my usual: corned beef and coleslaw w/Russian dressing. Deli was one of my favorite things then.

Antoine’s Restaurant. One of the oldest restaurants in New Orleans.

Miss that place....good food and art!

Not historic, or even wildly popular, but the one place I ate I will never forget





Pretty over the top with a harpist literally playing and moving her “boat” around a little “lake”. Good seafood.

Yes, they were in business for an extremely long time, but they closed some time ago, if memory serves because its employees voted to unionize. They were a classic Jewish style deli and entirely different from Ken’s Steak House in Framingham, which is best known for their salad dressings and is still open for business.

Hi jay5835,

Do you have any idea what Ken's street address was?

Thanks,
M.G.

When I was a kid, my favorite was a Horn & Hardart Automat in NYC. Mom & Dad would give you a handful of nickels and you'd go to the wall of little windowed stainless steel doors, make your choices, put in your coins, and the door would magically pop open. It was like playing the slots and winning every time.



As an older kid I always enjoyed stopping in at McSorley's Old Ale House (since 1854) on a weekday afternoon when it was more like a regular neighborhood 'joint' than a tourist attraction.

Morrisons cafeteria was good. Too bad they don't exist anymore.
