In a town where pre-packaged, bland casino deli stands peddle $12 sandwiches, it’s nice to know there are plenty of Subway restaurants downtown and on the Strip to help you when you need a fast, but healthy and affordable meal.
Subway franchises are a staple of many of the food courts in casinos, as well as in the strip malls on, and nearby the Las Vegas Strip.
As an added bonus, many of these Subways are open 24 hours a day.
Please keep in mind, that prices for each store may not always be the bargain of a traditional Subway in your town. A recent look at one casino food court Subway, for example, found that the cold-cut combo costs three to four more dollars more than than non-casino Subway stores outside of Las Vegas.
There are too many Subways in the Las Vegas/Henderson area to count, but from a quick look at Subway’s official website, there appear to be over 100 Subway restaurant locations in the Las Vegas, NV area, with new ones being opened up all the time of course.
There are nine Subway restaurants on the Las Vegas Strip.
Here are the closest Subway Restaurants to each casino, starting at the south end of the Las Vegas Strip:
Mandalay Bay – There is one inside the resort, in the “Convention Food Court” area, by the convention center.
(Go here to find a Burger King location on the Las Vegas Strip)
Additionally, there’s one across the street from the Mandalay Bay and The Delano in the strip mall across Las Vegas Boulevard.
There is not a Subway in the Luxor’s food court. There is an LA Subs, so the closest Subway would have you taking (ironically), the free tram from Luxor to Mandalay Bay.
Same with the Excalibur Hotel and Casino: no Subway here, just a Schlotzsky’s Deli in the Castle Walk Food Court.
Subway at Grand Canyon Experience – Neither the Tropicana nor MGM Grand have a Subway in their food courts.

The closest Subway restaurant to these two south Strip hotel/casinos is the one at the Grand Canyon experience tour booth seller, just north of the MGM Grand on the east side of the Strip.
In addition, the food court in the Showcase Mall just north of the Grand Canyon Experience, also has a Subway. This is the only place I know where there are two Subways, just about 100 feet away from each other.
Harmon Retail Corner – This 24 hour a day Subway is inside the shopping complex just south of Planet Hollywood and across from the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino.
Bally’s – The 24 hour a day Subway at the Bally’s food court makes this location the closest Subway to the Paris Hotel & Casino, the Cromwell Hotel & Casino, the Bellagio, and Flamingo.
Casino Royale – As a place with low limit gambling, the Casino Royale Subway franchise is naturally a very popular Subway. Detractors says the smell of the sandwiches permeates the casino floor.
Either way the location at Casino Royale is the closest Subway to Caesars Palace, Mirage, Harrah’s, and The Venetian.
Fashion Show Mall – This Subway, inside the food court at the Fashion Show Mall on the Las Vegas Strip, closes at 9 a.m. It is the closest Subway to Treasure Island (T.I.), the Wynn,and Encore.
Slots’A’Fun – Another 24 hour a day Subway in a casino that is known for catering to low rollers. This Subway is the closest one to Circus Circus.
The only close Subway within walking distance of extreme North Strip hotel casinos like the Sahara Las Vegas and the Stratosphere is one not on the Strip.

It’s actually on E. Sahara Avenue, one block east of the Strip, directly across the street from the eastern end of the Sahara Las Vegas Hotel and Casino.
Subway Restaurants on Fremont Street in Downtown Las Vegas
There are three Subways in old downtown Las Vegas. There are all located inside Fremont Street hotels.
Here are the three locations:
El Cortez Hotel and Casino
Four Queens Hotel and Casino
Plaza Hotel and Casino.
As of this posting, the official Subway site claims that franchises are going to be “Open Soon” at the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian.
