: The Monte Carlo is an upscale casino
located on the south strip.
Brandishing a $5 food comp from the day before, I headed to the cafe,
located (as everything is in a Vegas hotel), right off the main casino.
Luckily the clanging and beeping of slot machines were not too distracting.
At $8.59, the meal was a decent value for a strip property (contrary to
lingering stereotypes, Vegas is no longer the mecca of cheap eats that it
once was). The Reuben itself was excellent, with good size and flavor,
except for the toasted bread being too greasy. It came not only with the
requisite pickle, but with a side of potato salad and some fruit slices.
I didn't time the order, but service was quite fast, and soon I was done and
ready to go forth and lose my money. All in all, it was a great experience. (2004-01-04)
