It’s a classic Vegas staple and Texas Station is doing it better—and for less money—than most. Five meaty, chilled jumbo shrimp are served on the rim of a cocktail glass filled with cocktail sauce and accompanied by a lemon twist for that hint of zing. Should you get the craving for nostalgia, A-Bar is where to head. $2, in Texas Station, 2101 Texas Star Lane, 631-1000.
