Double Barrel Roadhouse is something of a one-stop Strip shop. On any given night you might catch a UFC fight on the big screens, or a comedy show, or a wild karaoke party, or a live band. There’s always something new going on, and it always seems to go well with a cold beer and a hot plate of barbecue.
But the food is new, too, at Double Barrel. The Strip-front restaurant at Monte Carlo’s BLVD Plaza just added drool-worthy dishes both savory and sweet, including a burnt ends brisket plate, tender beef smoked over peach wood and slathered in tangy barbecue sauce, and an array of spicy hot links straight off the grill, perfect for sharing. Speaking of sharing, you probably won’t be able to take down the brisket-loaded baked potato skins alone, so bring your squad and attack.
Finish off with a kitschy Vegas classic, deep-fried Twinkies covered in chocolate sauce—but Double Barrel does ’em in a raspberry tempura batter. It’s the little touches that make all the difference. Double Barrel Roadhouse at Monte Carlo, 702-222-7735; daily 11:30 a.m.-11 p.m.
