    If you are driving through Wyoming on I-25, you should make a stop in Orin Wyoming at the Highway 20/18 Junction.

    On the side of the gas station, there are a couple of ranchers with a barbecue pit. They slow cook phenomenal, fall off the bone ribs, that don't need any sauce.

    For $9, you get the ribs, a heaping portion of beef and beans so thick it is like a chili, cole slaw and a bottle of water.  You will not be disappointed.

    Plus taking highway 18 is a short cut from the South to the Black Hills, if you are heading that way.

    Wow, I can't believe that there are so many bad reviews on this place.  I give it 5 stars based on the following circumstances:

    1) I was driving from Minneapolis to Las Vegas and needed a beer break around Omaha.  

    2) A friend from the area recommended the place.

    3) I had 2 tasty beers for $2 a piece, at happy hour, something like 3-6.

    4) Cool outdoor patio.

    5) I can't imagine much else is going on in Omaha.

    Basically every drink is $3 before 8 p.m.  The bartender was a good guy and poured a strong drink.  Nice outdoor patio and cool futuristic inside.

    This place gets 5 stars for one reason. They are open and serve booze at 1 p.m. I found myself staying in Denver for a day.

    Having nothing to do, and not being familiar with the city I headed Downtown. There was a row a bars nearby, problem was nothing opens until 4...except El Chapultepec.

    For $4, you can get a Coors on tap, along with a hot dog and chips.

    Also, I think this place holds the record for the most disgusting bathroom, this side of Calcutta.

    I usually stop into this bar when in Vegas.  They usually have live country music and the crowd is out to have a good time.  You can get a huge mason jar full of booze for $15 or beer for $6.  There is at least 8 oz of booze in the jar, so 1 is enough for most non-alcoholics.  

    There are 2 massage chairs out front by the bathrooms.  After 1 or 2 a.m. you will see women trying to get orgasms from the vibrating seat.

    Never a cover charge.

    This is what a bar should be. The patrons were rough but friendly, the bar was a dive, but clean. I stopped in for a beer break on a cross country road trip. I ordered an Easy Street Wheat on tap for $3.25 and sat at the bar for about 15-20 minutes. There were a couple bikers, couple of ranchers, a couple alcoholics. There was also an old man named Jasper. He had a beard, a few teeth, was wearing a scarf, cowboy hat, boots and flannels. He spoke unintelligible English. I can only assume that he is a gold prospector.

    They have a large stage/dancefloor that wasn't being used on Monday 2 p.m.

    If you are just driving through, this might be your best option for a beer. I drove around town for 10 minutes before I found a bar and that bar, the Drunk Skunk, was closed on Sunday and Monday. I walked around the Downtown area for another couple minutes before I found this place.

    I ordered a seafood plate with shrimp, scallops and octopus over rice in a yellow curry sauce.  They did not skimp on the seafood.  The total was $15.  My friend had a beef and rice dish for $13.  I also had a mango mousse dessert that was also tasty.  

    I thought that the waitress was very friendly.  I'm not sure what the other Yelpers were expecting.

    Thursday night, I arrive at around 9 for 80's night. It's a $5 cover, but $1 you call it's all night.

    At 9, it was a complete sausagefest, probably 60 men and 6 women in the bar. I played a trek of Buck Hunter and shot a few free throws at the basketball hoop.

    It started to get busy around 10. I checked out the rooftop patio. Not bad, it was pretty crowded, loud and hot downstairs, so it was a nice retreat.

    By this time I understand why there was nothing but swingin' dicks at 9. They really don't let many dudes in after 10 p.m. There is a huge line out front, mostly d-bag, cocked hat, athletic apparel wearing mother fuckers.

    Women do not have to wait in line to get in.

    I had a good time that night, although with the $1 drinks, many people were way too drunk and it attracted a fairly trashy crowd.

    As we were walking home, there was some chick running away in stilettos, crying. I asked if she needed any help, only to hear FUCK YOU ASSHOLE!!! Then she threatened to have her boyfriend come and kick my ass. Lesson learned, mind your own business.

    The coffee was pretty good.  It's an open and comfortable place to come and relax.  

    Also strippers named Ginger come here before their shift  at La Boeme and practice standing on their head.

    I think I ordered something called a Santa Fe, it was a tortilla with chorizo, eggs, potatoes and a whole lot of other stuff. It was pretty good. I would come here again if I were in Longmont. It cost about $8. Waitress was friendly. They give you a pot of coffee when you order a cup.

    It is a step up from a Perkins or Denny's, but nothing to go out of your way for.

    This, along with the Imperial Palace is the cheapest place to stay on The strip. It's not a bad hotel, but it tends to fill up with families and children. I guess this is a good or bad thing, depending on your perspective.

    The buffet is probably the worst on the strip. It isn't much better than Old Country Buffet. They have a deal now where for $25 you can visit the buffet all day. You can leave and come back. My advice would be to spend $25 at the Bellaggio or Paris for Brunch. You will get a fantastic meal and wont be hungry for the rest of the day anyways.

    I do like the photo of the woman advertising the $25 all day buffet. She looks like she a psychotic clown who is about to orgasm over the shitty food.

    They also set up beer pong tables late at night. The advertisement for this shows a bunch of well dressed professionals in their mid to late 30's playing beer pong. I had to laugh, there is no way these people have played beer pong in the past 15 years.

    First the good:

    Most of the strippers here were actually pretty hot.  
    Happy Hour with $3.25 tap beers.
    Only a $5 cover charge.
    Strippers don't aggressively haggle you for dances.  

    Now the bad:

    It gets bumped down for some shady practices.  My buddy got a lap dance from this stripper, $20 per song.  She started with about 30 seconds left on one song.  One song was about 5 minutes long.  One song was about 3 minutes.  She charged him $80 for 4 songs.  She charged him for the first song that was basically over when she started.  She also charged him for 2 songs for the 5 minute song because it was long.  Then she wanted a tip after that.

    This is one of the bars inside Treasure Island. They make a strong fruity drinks at a decent price. You'll pay $8-9 for a plastic cup with maybe 5 oz of booze, or $15 for a take home medium sized plastic cup with about 8 oz of booze, or $20 for a whale bone with maybe 12 oz of booze.

    We ordered our drinks and finished them. Asked for the bill, it took about 15 minutes. The server kept joking around with all the other tables the entire time we were waiting. He then saw we were paying with credit card and kept clowning around. He kept walking by saying I'll get this in a minute. Well 10 minutes later I took out the card and put in $40 cash. The bill was about $38, I still though he got too big of a tip.

    Also they were supposed to have live band karaoke, but the but the band just kept playing the songs themselves.

    I was on a cross country trip and stopped in to watch the dogs race. They didn't start for an hour, so I bet $5 on red. I lost. I drank a complimentary coffee, then a complimentary Dr. Pepper.

    I was in on a Wednesday around 3 p.m. The place was absolutely packed. Most people were over 70, blowing the the inheritance of their issue.

    We got an old man to try to take a picture of us on an i-phone. He had a very difficult time understanding the instructions...hold phone, then push button.

    When he found out we were driving to Vegas, he followed us around and begged us to take him with. He let off a nasty fart and continued to follow us.

    We made a hasty exit.

    I would skip this place. They charge like $9 for a 22 oz. domestic tap. You can get that in a club for cheaper. They write mildly inappropriate catch phrases on paper hats that you wear.

    You should be able to get a free cab or limo drive from the strip to any of the strip clubs. Have the door man call one for you.

    The cover charge at Rick's is $30. We got a coupon from the driver for a free drink. Drinks are typically $11. Your group will get a private table. You will be aggressively solicited by stripper after stripper. The second you get one stripper to leave another one will instantly arrive and solicit you for a $100 private dance. Regular table dances are $20. They have 1 or 2 strippers dancing at sniffer's row for tips. They do not always take their clothes off.

    It is entirely possible that you could come to Rick's, spend $30 to get in and see nothing but women in lingerie if you don't want to shell out for the dances.

    The place is topless only. But it is so dark that you will not be able to see the topless dancers from your table, you will have to go to sniffer's row, and even then, not all of them will take off their top for anything less than a fiver.

    And good luck getting a cab back to the strip. If you are lucky enough to get one within 10 minutes, you have to pay for the ride back.

    By the way, there is no sex in the champagne room. My buddy was aggressively solicited for a private dance for 15 minutes. During this time the stripper massaged his junk and promised, promised, promised that it gets better in the private room. I can tell you that it does not. Once he agreed to the private dance, her hand left his dick, never to return.
