Ellis Island, a casino for locals off The Strip, has the best ribs in town and unbelievably reasonable prices. The menu is very limited as they only serve pork ribs and chicken, but you won't be sorry. The BBQ restaurant is only open for dinner (opening at 4:00 PM) and you must be 21 or over to eat there. If... More

We had supper at Ellis Island BBQ with locals from Las Vegas who said it had the best ribs in town. The facilities are not new but the ribs were definitely tasty. Prices are good and we enjoyed the good food, good service and good beer. The menu is quite limited as it is mostly ribs, chicken or both, with... More

For $12.99 I got a half slab of ribs and a 1/2 chicken with slaw, baked beans and corn on the cob. The food was good and the price was excellent. They also have craft beers for a $1,... More

For ca $15 you will get here a Steak, baked potato and a salad. I was sceptic because the restarant belongs to the Hotel next door which wasw very bad. But I was positively surprised. The Steak was juicy and tasty

Great rib dinner with players card! $10.99 =1/2 rack, cole slaw, baked beans, roll...GREAT!! If you are going for the corn on the cob..stay home because it is tasteless. In the water too long. Root beer is to die for.

This place doesn't look like much from the outside but it is really a good dinner place, not to expensive. It does get crowded as it is a small casino as well. Service was good.

What a great deal. Great BBQ and great prices. Under $15 for a full plate! Beers only $2.50 for 20 oz. this is a must visit. The casino is ok but you even get a better price if you join the players club for free. Have at it. Well worth the uber fare to get there.

Food is great, waitress was great. The hostess, a Mexican looking gal was worthless. She is extremely rude and disrespectful. Made fun of an overweight customer and a disabled customer! If the food wasn't so good we would have left. I hope Ellis island gets rid of her and keeps this a top notch restaurant!
