Best lunch: Those Guys Pies
This spot is buried in a small strip mall in The Lakes district of Las Vegas, but it’s managed to draw national attention despite being a local favorite. Those Guys Pies was featured on an episode of the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives for their awesome menu of East Coast-inspired pizza and subs, and they are very proud of that fact. They play the episode on a loop on the only TV in the joint, which you can’t help but watch as you wait for your lunch. I also will tell you up front that sitting is extremely limited inside the establishment, but there a few tables and chairs outside that are in the shade. As a Boston native, finding a legit steak and cheese sub in the desert was a challenge, but these guys do it right. The pizza at Those Guys is the best I’ve had west of the Mississippi, and the wings are the only ones I eat in Las Vegas. They are set up as a takeout place, but you can eat there if you’d prefer. People from all over the country have made their way to this place for lunch, and it consistently receives five-star ratings from patrons.
