Dining Pick of the Week: Sahara Saloon


3345 E. Sahara Ave. at boulder highway, 702-457-2020

This may not be the kind of saloon you see in Gene Autry movies or reruns of “Gunsmoke,” but it is more than 40 years old and a reminder of the good old days. Breakfast features omelets, pancakes, French toast and two specialties: Ranch Hand (hot biscuits and gravy, sausage, hash browns) and Marlboro Man, where two eggs are served with two pork chops, biscuits and gravy and hash browns. Popular sandwiches, served with fries, slaw or potato salad, are French dip, club, Sahara Burger, breaded chicken, New York steak and bacon burger with cheese. Featured entrees are chicken fried steak, Porterhouse steak, ground round steak with grilled onions, liver and onions with bacon and New York steak. Each entree comes with choice of soup or salad, choice of potato and vegetable. Friday nights are crowded as customers come early for the clam chowder and prime rib. There are hot dogs, soups, salads (taco, chef) and appetizers such as chicken wings or fingers with fries, chili cheese fries, mozzarella cheese sticks and onion rings. Breakfast begins at $2.25, and sandwiches start at $5.50. Sahara Saloon is open 24/7, with the restaurant open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 6 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday. — Jack Bulavsky
