Caesars Palace in Las Vegas is full of well-renowned (and pricey) restaurants, however if you’re looking to save some money, or just get a quick fill up before getting back into the action, the resort offers a clean contemporary food court with a variety of fast-casual options that should satisfy almost every appetite.
Known as the Forum Food Hall, Caesars Palace’s food court boasts 8 different quick-serve restaurants spread out nearly 15,000 square feet of newly renovated space.
The re-designed Forum Food hall re-opened in 2021, and is located near the entrance to the Forum Shops.
Here’s a quick list of each dining option at the Caesar Palace Forum Food Hall.
Celebrity chef Bobby Flay’s fast-food joint lets you try the Food Network star’s creations at very reasonable prices (by Las Vegas standards).
The menu boasts ten different burger specials, with your choice of burger meat options being beef, turkey or chicken.
The Crunchburger is your basic cheeseburger, but with potato chips on top of the patty.
The Green Chile burger features queso sauce, roasted green chiles, and pickled red onions, while the “L.A.” is a burger topped with avocado relish, cheddar cheese, tomato and watercress.
Besides regular fries (with fry sauce), sides include Buttermilk onion rings and sweet potato fries.
Even vegetarians have a choice here, with the “Bobby’s Veggie Burger.” Consisting of barbecue mushrooms, it’s adorned with American cheese, quinoa, romaine lettuce, tomato, red pepper chipotle mayo and chickpeas.
There are a few salad selections and seven different creamy milkshakes, including pistachio.
Crepes and More
Their menu ranges from simple bagels to yogurt to ice cream sundaes. Of course there are a variety of crepes, ranging from sweet dessert crepes, such as Nutella, a Bananas Foster, and the popular “Strawberry Short Crepe” as well as more meal-type crepes, such as Bacon & Eggs, Ham & Guyere, and Roasted Chicken & Pesto, among others.
It’s been called the best pizza in New York City, by Mayor Bill de Blasio, but don’t let that stop you.
The Sin City outpost of this NYC pizza joint gets good reviews, even if it does seem a little pricey ($9 for a slice of Pepperoni, $46 for the whole pizza).
Besides four kinds of pizza (Pepperoni, cheese, meat lovers and mushroom), you’ll find garlic knots, a meatball sub, a hoagie, and three different salads, include chicken Caesar and a Mediterrean salad.
The Halal Guys
Eating at this NYC-based chain featuring dishes from the Middle East may be a nice switch from the less healthy options you find on the go in Las Vegas.
The Halal Guys menu is simple, and features beef gyros, falafels, combo and chicken sandwiches – all of which can be in platter-form instead (with rice, lettuce, tomatoes and choice of white or red sauce).
Sides available include hummus and baba ghanoush (among others).
Smoke & Sizzle BBQ
As you’d expect, your BBQ basics are here, such as a smoked brisket sandwich and pulled pork sandwich.
Other meats include Kansas city ribs, beef hot link, burnt ends, and rotisserie chicken.
Choices of sides range from a honey-buttered biscuit, to corn on the cob to baked beans, to a jalapeno cheddar cornbread, among others.
Open from 6 AM to 9 PM, this is one of two Starbucks at Caesars Palace (the other being on the other end of the resort near the hotel lobby on the way to the Augustus Tower.
Here you can get…tacos! They have street tacos, which are made fresh outside on Las Vegas Boulevard. Just kidding, I assume they are made in the kitchen.
The menu includes Qdoba/Chipotle type of made-to-order burritos and bowls, along with chips and salsa, beers, and margaritas
Tiger Wok & Ramen
Asian inspired cuisine here, with everything from Pho to Kung Pao Chicken, to Singapore Noodles. There’s also a Chicken Katsu plate, Sweet and Sour (chick or shrimp), Pad Thai Noodle and more.
Ramen options include Tonkotsu Ramen and Shoyu ramen
Earl of Sandwich
Although open on a recent visit in the summer of 2021, Caesars Entertainment says Earl of Sandwich is “temporarily closed.” The location is not listed on Earl of Sandwich website, so speculation that it is permanently closed may be accurate.
There is still, however, another Earl of Sandwich location down the Strip at Planet Hollywood Hotel & Casino.
Forum Food Hall Hours
Every day of the week: 6 AM to Midnight.
However please note that each restaurant can set their own hours. Starbucks, for example, closes at 9 PM, not midnight, while DiFara Pizza opens at 11 AM, rather than 6 AM.
