as “the Shame O’ the Strip,” “the joint your mama
warned you about,” and “you can’t kill a man born to
hang,” this raunchy, rowdy, in-your-face, boisterous
restaurant and bar brings new meaning to the word
“party.” And it is a party!
The cuisine is a combination of bar food,
entertainment, “Animal House,” “I’m all that”
attitude and really living “what happens in Vegas
stays in Vegas.” Chicken fingers, wings, ribs, and
not only starters but “dinna,” as it is called, is
also served. You could order Pork Bonerz “which is
like a rib but betta.” There is Half-a-Chicky,
Crabby Cakes, Case O’ King Crabs and Goldy Fry’d
Catfish. The three major food groups of meat, frys
and slaw come with every meal. There is Dick’s
Picks of Dolly Parton, which is two voluptuous
Chicky breasts, or Love Me Tenders, or Ride ‘em
Cowboy Ribeye. Salads are called Roughage and
dessert includes Not Yo Mama’s Cheezecake.
Dick’s Last Resort is more than buckets of finger
foods, it is a total experience. Think of actually
living in “2 ½ Men,” “The Simpsons,” and “Married
with Children.” The wait staff is rude, outrageous,
silly and spontaneous. Beware of the hats the wait
staff will make for you out of white butcher paper,
very tall and very big with sayings like, “Yes,
they’re real” (see my photo). Or if you ask for a
glass of water, the answers you will get! But it is
all done in great humor.
One of the funniest shows I have ever seen was the
recreation of the Bellagio Water show behind the
bar. Our bartender took off his shirt (and he is a
big guy), showing a thong under his jeans and using
the “bar gun” (which dispenses water and soda), to
an operatic song; he squired, sprayed, drank, sang
and soaked himself.
This is a great place to let loose, laugh out loud,
eat everything you want (whether it is good for you
or not) and just be rowdy, ill-mannered, rude (along
with the wait staff) and not have to tell your mom
anything! Yes, Dick’s Last Resort is the place your
mamma warned you about!
