📍Excalibur Wy, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Located in Henderson, this is the closest Chuck Wagon Dinner show to Sin City, and it’s the best way to see how the west does dinner and a show. Entertainment is provided by Mama’s Wranglers, a group of home-grown recording artists that sing and dance to old western classics. While you indulge in tasty BBQ favorites like ribs and pulled pork, you’ll be serenaded by fiddles, guitars, drums and more as the four-person group play songs by the likes of Johnny Cash and Hank Williams.

It takes place every Saturday and Sunday in Las Vegas’ Arts District, and you can expect bottomless mimosas poured to your heart’s content. Chicken and waffles, french toast, smoked salmon benedict and more are on the menu, and you should try out their classic ‘brunch shot’ (go for the Cinnamon Toast shot if you’re feeling extra firey).

Luxury and decadence meet at Delilah – Wynn’s newest supper club that opened in 2021. Jazz bands and solo pianists grace the stage to perform while guests dine and socialize, and servers dressed in tuxedos and flapper dresses help add to the 1950s vibe. The menu offers delicious seafood including oysters, caviar and crabs legs, but be prepared to spend over $30 per dish.
