Eating out in Las Vegas can get expensive quickly, and there’s nothing worse than trying to relax on vacation while stressing about a dwindling budget. Luckily, you don’t have to starve. The Castle Walk Food Court at Excalibur delivers fun dining on the Strip that won’t strip you of your funds!


Castle Walk has a variety of dining options and nine venues with menus featuring items for $10 or less. There’s Auntie Anne’s Pretzels, Cinnabon, Hot Dog On A Stick, Krispy Kreme, McDonald’s, Pizza Hut Express and Starbucks. The only Pick Up Stix location in Las Vegas is at Castle Walk and there’s even a Tropical Smoothie Cafe for the health-conscious crowd. Schlotzsky’s Deli (shown in photo above) and Popeyes Chicken are also at the food court, each with menu items at $15 or less.

Big Chill is Castle Walk’s frozen bar. This is a Vegas food court, after all. They offer a wine selection for $7 a glass, domestic bottled beer for $5 and imported bottled beer for $6. The most expensive drink at Big Chill is a 100-oz Big Daddy for $29.99.

A convivial and unique dining experience at Castle Walk can be found inside Popcornopolis, the flavored gourmet popcorn eatery. It’s the perfect place for a sweet or savory snack that will only set you back $5.99 for a regular or $7.99 for a large. It starts to get more expensive if you want to purchase a two-gallon tin (very tempting after a few bites), which costs $39.99. The popcorn is delicious and comes in all kinds of crazy flavors, such as Lemon Heaven, Carmel Corn, Kettle Corn, Jalapeño Cheddar, Cupcake and Strawberries and Cream.

If you want to take advantage of further savings, Krispy Kreme has partnered up with Salvation Army and is now offering a delicious incentive to donate to kids in need. Throughout August and part of September, the “Stuff the Bus” campaign will provide local students with school supplies and backpacks. If you drop off a single school supply, you’ll receive one of their famous original glazed doughnuts absolutely free. If you bring a backpack full of school supplies, you’ll get a dozen doughnuts! The Castle Walk Krispy Kreme is open 24 hours so bring a donation anytime and enjoy a free midnight snack, if your stomach desires!

For the kids, Castle Walk features face painting and spray tattoos on weekends. There are souvenir shops scattered around the food court, oversized high-definition televisions for watching sports and an area for lounging if you want to stay and hang out. All in all, it’s a pretty neat place to go with the family without spending too much money. So feel free to splurge on tickets for that show you’ve been dying to see, and plan a meal or two at Castle Walk.
