Christmas Eve early dinner in or near Cloverdale?

Driving from SF to Cloverdale to have late lunch/early Christmas eve dinner with elderly inlaws. Hoping to find someplace decent open for a meal 4-6pm-ish without having to drive back south through Santa Rosa traffic.
Can anyone suggest a nice place that might be open? Or just a good restaurant and I will contact them re: holiday hours? Anything goes except Asian or seafood.
Thanks very much, Sue

Thanks for the tip, sounds tasty and fun! Did you try other dishes that you enjoyed? Would you recommend this restaurant to others?

Breakfast and Lunch options in or near Rio?

Great suggestions all, thank you!

Alan, thank you - Yank Sing was our benchmark for dim sum when I lived in SF. I see that KJ's is well-reviewed, will give them a try for sure, and the Palms for breakfast.

McC&S sounds just right for a stop on the way back from visiting the Hoover Dam.

Anyone have suggestions for places on the Strip? We're looking forward to strolling and enjoying the glitter and glam that is Vegas, but need to keep up our strength, lol. Haven't been to City Center since it opened, at that time it was pretty empty but surely it is occupied now. Any good spots there?

Again, thanks everyone!

Thank you Eric and Dave for your quick responses, much appreciated.

The Gold Coast is a good suggestion I wouldn't have thought to try.

I consider budget -friendly for a fast lunch or snack to be very roughly $15pp. Hoping for a good deli-type sandwich or burger, or a good main-course salad, Asian food is a good option also, or pasta. Another possibility would be a happy hour with good bar food if there are any you'd recommend starting 3pm-ish. A microbrew and some sliders would be perfect for SO.

We eat just about everything as long as it is freshly prepared. Only thing off-limits are buffets, SO hates them (Dave, you've met my SO? Small world, lol), fast pseudo-food such as BK or McD's, and doughnuts.

Thanks again, I know there are good places around, the trick is finding them...

So you've just arrived in Vegas, collected your rental car at the airport and gotten yourself checked in at Rio (not first choice of hotels but it is what it is). It's 2:30pm and Spouse is getting cranky from the stress of travel and from not having eaten since breakfast.

To put Spouse back into a festive mood and get your Las Vegas holiday off to a good start, where would you go for a fairly quick but decent, budget-friendly late lunch, or a hearty snack to hold you over until dinner time?

We'll be heading straight for the Strip, with Caesar's as our first stop to pick up show tickets. Must be some good options there...?

In many, many trips to LV, this is our first stay at Rio. Can someone please help with suggestions for a good breakfast nearby? We have a car but might want to go somewhere within walking distance on the Strip. Offerings at Rio don't look all that promising though hopefully one can get a semi-decent cup of coffee at Starbucks first thing in the am.

Your help on this is much appreciated, thanks in advance everyone.
