Henderson, Nevada is a city southeast of downtown Las Vegas and is the second largest city in the state. What began as an area almost solely used for supplying magnesium during World War II later became a bustling community with an impressive nightlife and plenty of options for dining in style.

Often overshadowed by the vibrancy of its neighboring metropolis, Henderson definitely possesses its own charm. Being located so closely to Las Vegas, Henderson is a lovely city to escape to when you need a short break from the constant hustle and bustle of Sin City.

The following is a list of the best restaurants in the city. I paid close attention to the meal prices, menu selections, and the beer, wine, and spirits if available. There is a mixture of French, BBQ, Asian, American, seafood, Greek, and much more. Here are the 14 best restaurants in Henderson, NV.

1. Juan’s Flaming Fajitas & Cantina

We start the list with a place that is rumored to have the best Mexican dishes in Henderson! All of Juan’s tortillas are homemade and the guacamole is always fresh-made. Begin your meal with Juan’s Sampler, a mouth-watering plate piled high with taquitos, nachos, and quesadillas.

The pollo asado is a fantastic choice for lunch, with marinated chicken breasts, chiles, and a dollop of guacamole on the side. Customers enjoy the ambiance, the margarita specials, and the steak fajitas. Juan’s is especially generous with “the meats,” making sure that you are getting your money’s worth.

 

 

2. Gaati Thai Kitchen

Best Restaurant in Henderson, NV

Gaati Thai Kitchen brings the authentic taste of Thai to Nevada! There are more curries to choose from than I even knew existed (including massaman and panang), and the pineapple fried rice is a must, as is the mango stick rice and the crispy duck with tamarind sauce.

There were no alcoholic beverages that I could find, but they offer some amazing teas and sparkling water. Especially if you have never tried Thai cuisine before, you will be in for a special treat.

The first thing that sticks out on the menu for Lucille’s Smokehouse would be the names of some of the dishes, which include cracked out deviled eggs, the hot-honey cauliflower bites, and Lucille’s beer-can chicken.

From the beginning, you can tell that this place is about to be an exciting ride! Customers rave over the St. Louis ribs, which are juicy and tender. The adult beverages are superb – barrel-aged Manhattan whiskey, cucumber watermelon martinis, and sweet southern punches.

Le Cafe Du Lac is French-inspired, and the breakfast menu is packed with tons of pastries to fill you up. The entrees are divine, with prices that won’t break your budget.

The pastries (which include la poire, la panache, and la sucre) are baked daily and contain just the right amount of sweetness. Guests can even request to sit at a table with a beautiful, relaxing view of the water as you enjoy your meal.

With the word “unique” in the title, you know it’s going to be a one-of-a-kind meal! The seafood served at Todd’s comes from different countries around the world. The beef carpaccio and the pan-seared rainbow trout are two popular dishes.

CRAFTkitchen is an eclectic establishment with a menu that is inspired by local favorites. Try the caramel apple chai latte for a delicious morning pick-me-up, or even bottomless mimosas if you are looking to let loose a little!

For something different, try the roasted cauliflower ravioli or the Korean fried chicken burger. Customers love the cleanliness of the restaurant and the friendliness of the staff.

 

 

9. I Love Sushi

With the most straight-forward business name on the list, I Love Sushi is for sushi fanatics! The selection of sushi samplers is mind-blowing, with everything from sashimi to the alligator sushi to the banzai roll and the curiously-titled dish referred to as “I love my a**”…

That’s one way to get the community’s attention! Customers stop by for their first time and it becomes the first of many visits. They love that the service is incredible and hands-on.

 

 

10. Hank’s Fine Steaks & Martinis

Named the Best Steakhouse in Henderson, Hank’s Fine Steaks is serious about their steaks! Juicy steaks are cooked to perfection, and the filet mignon melts in your mouth. The martinis are handcrafted and the wine selection includes fine wine from far-away lands.

Referred to by pleased patrons as classy, first-class, and exceptional. While the prices tend to be higher than the other restaurants listed, Hank’s is definitely worth the money.

The Great Greek Mediterranean is a touch of Greece in the middle of the Nevada desert. The hummus is a favorite menu staple, served with pita bread. The falafel plate is served with chickpea fritters and yogurt mint sauce – it is a treat for lovers of Greek cuisine as well as those who are finally able to try it for the first time.

Guests thoroughly enjoy experiencing a culinary fare that is outside of the regular realm of pizzas and breakfasts. This is definitely the restaurant to go to if you are looking for exotic eats.

Although I was apprehensive to add the Rainbow Club Casino to this list – since it is primarily a casino – there is also exquisite food served there. One thing about Nevada is that the casino meal deals are top-tier, and Triple B (the restaurant within the casino) is no exception.

At this location, you can purchase thick, juicy Angus burgers dripping with savory sauces for a great low price. Customers enjoy the relaxing atmosphere (yes, relaxing within a casino!) and the breakfast specials that are available 24/7.

 

 

Summary

This concludes our list of the 14 best restaurants in Henderson, Nevada. The area is definitely more than casinos, mountains, bright lights, and a wild nightlife. I hope that you will stop in Henderson the next time that you are on your way to Vegas so you can experience the fine dining that Henderson has to offer.
