While the rest of the country drops menu prices in hopes of attracting business in a still-ailing economy, the price of an average meal actually went up in Las Vegas: according to Zagat, it is now $47.53, up from $44.44 last year.
That's pretty expensive, considering the next priciest city is New York at $41.76, with Miami coming in third at $39.86. Does that include two-for-one buffets? Because we imagine that would bring the average down a bit. Anyway, Las Vegas diners also leave an average 19.4% tip, which is higher than the regional norm.
