Crossroads

Enjoy bites that include these decked out tacos with your choice of blackened chicken, char-grilled citrus marinated steak, or char-grilled Mahi Mahi.

Whether you’re in Vegas to see a rock legend at the House of Blues or vacationing at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, there-in resides the perfect place a for cocktail.



Located adjacent to the concert venue, Crossroads restaurant has the solution for feasting with family and friends. Your ticket to your favorite performer may put you back a few bucks but the price of a meal and a cocktail won’t have your wallet singing the blues. One of Crossroads mainstay appetizers, the voodoo shrimp simmered in an amber beer reduction creates a scintillating sauciness that you will not be able to resist. The jumbo shrimp combined with jalapeño corn bread makes for the perfect comfort food foundation.

Another hit on the menu is truly a winning chicken dinner, the soul cluckin’ good. This dish is not only good for your stomach, but will nourish you to your very soul. The chicken is marinated in buttermilk and sweet BBQ spice, southern fried, and served with the choice of two sides. The homemade coleslaw and the baked beans are decidedly good selections.

Of course there are many other choices to please your palate such as Loretta's meatloaf featuring 100 percent ground Angus beef topped with house made sweet bell pepper-mushroom sauce or the rich lobster mac and cheese with poached lobster meat, a creamy cheese sauce, all topped with crispy panko bread crumbs.

Do you think you can tame the eyes of dessert desire after all that great comfort food? Once you see the bourbon bread pudding prepared with bananas and white chocolate ladled with a decadent bourbon caramel sauce or the mile high coconut cream pie, you may give in to that crazy urge to splurge. 

Crossroads is also a feast for the eyes with one of the world’s largest collections of folk art. You will be scratching your head in amazement at the design and whimsy that turns Crossroads into a miniature museum.

Have a seat at the bar where bright colors, mirrors, bottle caps, and padlocks are arranged in the most creative manner. Come for the music, stay for the food, view the art, and you will be glad you made Crossroads apart of your Las Vegas itinerary.
