Here's another guest post from Little Sis from her Vegas trip!
Willy and Jose’s Cantina
Sam’s Town Hotel & Gambling Hall, Las Vegas
5111 Boulder Highway
Las Vegas, NV 89122
Willy and Jose’s had 3 specials that night. We ordered
the Prime Rib and Crab Legs for $21, and the Willy & Jose’s – grilled filet
medallions – for $15.
They started us off with a plate of chips and dips. I
loved that they offered 3 different dips. Most Mexican restaurants I’ve been to
simply offer chips and salsa. Willy and Jose’s gave a spicy salsa at the top, a
mild salsa in the middle, and a bean dip at the bottom.
Both specials came with soup or salad.
The Salad was very simple. It seemed like they had opened
one of those pre-packaged salads you can buy at the grocery store, dumped it in
my plate, and topped it off with chopped tomatoes, shredded cheese, and ranch
dressing. It had too much dressing.
The Tomato Soup was thick and just a little bit creamy,
but not too heavy.
The one-half pound of Snow Crab Legs was unexpectedly
spicy. It was good though, and to my relief, not too salty. The Baked Potato
was huge. Unfortunately it was too dry. The Vegetables were a great complement
to the prime rib.
The medallions were topped with bacon and cheese. They
were slightly burnt and thus hard to chew. The beans weren’t hot enough, but the
rice went well with the medallions.
The service wasn’t very good. They didn’t come by to
refill our drinks at all. They weren’t that busy that night either.
