Jack Binion’s Steak Opens at Bally’s/Horseshoe

Bally’s is currently transitioning into Horseshoe Las Vegas, and the Strip casino has announced the opening of its new steakhouse: Jack Binion’s Steak.

Jack Binion’s Steak moves into the space that was previously home to BLT Steak, near the Indigo Lounge and the former Buca di Beppo and the former Tequila Taqueria.

Let’s just say there’s a lot going on at the former Bally’s, which is sort of still Bally’s, which was previously MGM Grand, just to make things even more confusing.

Insert “Jack’s meat” joke here. Do you know this blog at all?

Jack Binion’s Steak is a traditional Las Vegas steakhouse, and by that we mean sort of expensive.

The menu has all your steakhouse favorites, plus the option of getting steak sauce for $6.95. All this delicious food and that’s what you’re focusing on? Are you even on vacation? Get your act together and loosen up.

Oh, just use your corporate credit card! You used it at Sheri’s Ranch, already!

Longtime BLT Steak (and before that Bally’s Steakhouse) fans will note there’s been no mention of the return of the beloved Sterling Brunch. Don’t hold your breath.

Be thankful we have Bacchanal at Caesars. Where did all the buffets go? Well, the CEO of Caesars Entertainment says the company’s Las Vegas buffets lost an average of $3 million a year prior to the pandemic. Thus, why so many didn’t reopen. Casinos aren’t charities.

If the Binion name isn’t familiar, you may not be Vegas enough. Jack Binion was the son of Benny Binion, noted mobster and civic hero in Las Vegas. Wikipedia describes Benny Binion as a “casino magnate.” Oy. Read “Blood Aces” by Doug Swanson for all the Benny Binion scoop.

The steakhouse at Binion’s is named Top of Binion’s Steakhouse. This is not going to cause any confusion among visitors whatsoever.

Here’s the short version of the circularity of the universe and why it’s incredible there’s a Jack Binion’s Steak at Bally’s: Benny Binion opened Binion’s Horseshoe downtown. He started the World Series of Poker (WSOP). Caesars Entertainment (owner of Bally’s casino) purchased Binion’s Horseshoe and snagged the Binion’s and WSOP brands. Now, Binion’s is just Binion’s. Bally’s is being rebranded Horseshoe (because Bally’s Corp. bought Tropicana) and the WSOP is happening right now at Bally’s, soon to be Horseshoe Las Vegas.

Things move fast in Vegas!

Also coming to Horseshoe Las Vegas (this is going to take some getting used to) is M.Y. Asia from Chef Martin Yan.

Outside, in the Grand Bazaar Shops, Blake Shelton’s Old Red is also in the works for a 2023 opening.
