This is a branch of a national chain, and while the fare is strictly coffee shop, it's a good representative of same. Since it's well located at the foot of Fremont Street, in the Neonopolis complex, and is open late, it should be considered for both hungry night owls and families on a budget (especially those with hungry and/or picky teens, since the large menu has something for just about everyone, except maybe those watching their diet). You will find the usual playful concept chain food starters -- Buffalo wings, mozzarella sticks, plus a more clever spinach and artichoke dip with chips -- and then everything from multiburger styles (the barbecue-bacon burger oozed cheese and was piled with bacon and onion rings) to steak and seafood combos, pizzas, and some unexpected New Orleans-influenced entrees such as jambalaya and even crawfish. Portions are enormous, so you can split items and save even more money, and everything is what you might expect in terms of quality -- not transcendent, but solidly good. The atmosphere is lively, if not downright noisy.
