Las Vegas Restaurant: Hash House a Go Go

Hash House a Go Go Salad

There is a lot of Las Vegas restaurants. I have no clue how many, but when you factor in everything from fast food to the fine dining, it's a lot.

Knowing how my kids eat salad, they would have LOVED it. That's why when I heard about the Whole Foods … [Read more...]
