Las Vegas Icon Meets Las Vegas Icon

Las Vegas, Nev. – The Omelet House Diner, a Las Vegas icon for 30 years, opened today for business in its new Downtown Las Vegas location at the Plaza Hotel & Casino. Serving breakfast and lunch daily, the restaurant is located right inside the front doors of the property, which is now more convenient with valet parking right in front of the property. The restaurant is open every day except Thanksgiving and Christmas from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Omelet House has been a mainstay of Las Vegas business deals, family breakfasts, great food and great service. The local’s eatery has been a repeated beneficiary in the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s “Best of Las Vegas” poll, and was most recently selected “The Best Power Lunch” by the Las Vegas Review-Journal staff.

We are life long Las Vegans, so the Plaza is a symbol of the great days of Downtown,” said Kevin Mills, co-owner of the Omelet House. “We are excited about bringing our menu, our style of cooking and our presentation to the downtown crowd including tourists and locals.”

When you hear omelet, you think breakfast, but lots of Las Vegans have learned that the search for Southern Nevada’s greatest hamburger also leads to the Omelet House with crowd pleasers including Jack-of-All-Trades (served with Jack cheese and smothered with tasty guacamole, lettuce and tomato), Patti Page (featuring a ½ pound patty with American and Jack cheese, loaded with grilled onions on rye bread) and the Ortega Chiles Burger (smothered with Ortega chiles with two pieces of Jack cheese).

I am pleased to add the Omelet House to all the new exciting things happening here at the Plaza,” said Tony Bender, vice president of marketing for the Plaza. “The Omelet House is a long-time favorite among local Las Vegans, and I’m sure the tourists are going to love it just the same.”

For long time Las Vegas foodies (we’re talking long, long time) – the grail of appetizers not equaled anywhere are the zucchini sticks that were served ages ago (o.k. 25 years ago) at the old Alias Smith and Jones on Twain. Good news, their direct descendants live on at the Omelet House because Alias Smith and Jones, as well The Food Factory, which is legendary among long time locals, were both owned by the Omelet House’s Co-Owner Mike McGowan.

We have always had that niche: fun food, in a fun atmosphere with great energy,” said McGowan. “We are thrilled about our new location at the Plaza and about introducing ourselves to downtown Las Vegas visitors.”

The Omelet House’s original locations at 2160 West Charleston and 316 North Boulder Highway will remain open.

Since 1979, the Omelet House has become one of Las Vegas’ greatest success stories, remaining as one of the few freestanding restaurants from 30 years ago. The popular restaurant has cultivated a loyal and diverse clientele. Its reputation for great food has spread by word of mouth through the most influential movers and shakers in Las Vegas. Boasting over 30 omelet selections, the Omelet House also features a variety of breakfast and lunch selections including old-fashioned pancakes, French toast, Eggs Benedict, waffles, sandwiches, hamburgers, homemade soups and salads.
