For years, Las Vegas has been a culinary destination, bringing celebrity chefs in to show off their incredible culinary talents to the entertainment capital of the world. But as locals to Sin City, we know that the delicious eats go even further than beyond The Strip and right into our own backyards in Summerlin, North Las Vegas, Henderson, Boulder City and Las Vegas itself. 

We think local eats in Las Vegas deserve to be celebrated just as much as the celebrity chefs down Las Vegas Boulevard. To celebrate our local restaurants and eateries, we compiled Yelp’s Top 50 Places to Eat in Las Vegas for 2021. From pizzerias , to bakeries, to vegan tacos, to sushi — these local spots are beloved by local Yelpers across Southern Nevada and we can’t wait to see which ones you check out next.
