"BEST" ?

What are you trying to find out?

For what it's worth, when I visited in 9/09, I was staying at Sahara, but planned to get some stuff at whatever grocery was local.

Prior to leaving, I used Google Maps to see that there is an Albertson's on Sahara, about 1 mile east of the hotel. I walked it my first evening, and took the bus back.
I invented a few casino games. Info: http://www.DaveMillerGaming.com/ 覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧 Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁

The basic grocery stores are all pretty much the same -- Vons, Smiths, Albertsons. You also have Whole Foods and Trader Joes for more exotic, and expensive, stuff. Costco for the basics, in huge quantities, cheap. This answer will suffice for most large US cities.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Whole foods is fantastic, and they usually have good-looking female checkout clerks that are healthy looking.

I am supplied by Walgreens for all my vacation needs. They sell everything I need whule I am in Vegas, and are conveniently located. Either that or a 7-11. Convenience means more to me than cost or quality while in Vegas.

I'm not a firm believer in the whole organic thing, therefore whole foods is out for me. There are 2 Sunflower Markets however. They carry both organic and regular stuff. There produce is generally pretty good. One is on Flamingo and Rainbow the other is on Pecos and Trop.
