Yes, i remember the Deli very well. I might have the dates wrong but we ate there many times from 1958-1966. I can still remember their Ruben sandwiches.....and New York egg creams.
One or two times we met and spoke to Frank Sinatra.
Even though i was only a kid i remember speaking to Mr. Fox many times.
Up stairs above the Deli there was a Coin store and an Attorneys Office.

Foxy's was one of the few integrated restaurants during the era of segregation in Las Vegas. This made it quite an important place to black entertainers on the Strip. I would like to interview anyone connected with that establishment.

From the late 50's on, I recall a lot of signage in the desert promoting Foxy's on the way from LA to LV.I recall eating breakfast there as a youngster and asking my Dad what "deli" meant.

I am searching for the receipe for cabbage soup that was served in Foxy's. We stopped there everytime we were in Vegas in the old days.. They had the greatest deli food around then and now...

Regarding the January 23 post by Jimmy, if I remember correctly, the "Attorney's office" upstairs above Foxy's was actually my father's real estate office, Gordon Bell Realty. There may have been more than one office but I doubt it. I remember working for my dad researching properties along the strip and in circa 1967 signed my first professional baseball contract in that office.

My family lived in Las Vegas from the middle 50's until my parents moved to Arizona in 1969.

I remember a great pie at Foxy's, a chocolate chiffon with chocolate flakes on top. My family would send me there when I was too young to hang out in the casinos. This was every summer through the '50s when we'd spend a week at the Sahara. The stars playing there were bigger then and so were the corned beef sandwiches at Foxy's.

I was in Vegas in '74 visiting my dad. I spent my tenth birthday there. He took me to Foxy's. It was his favorite diner. My mom still has the menu I brought home.

I arrived in Las Vegas in February 1965 with a friend named Maud Chapel who, later on got married with Jim Fox.
We used to go to Foxy's any time by day and night but especially for their exellent breakfeast. We both where working in showbusiness.
I left Las Vegas in 1974.I never heard from Maud since,I have been told she is living in Los Angeles now.If anyone can help and tell Jim FoxI am trying to find is ex wife, it will be great!

Yes, it was in the early 1960's, I remember going with my father to Foxy’s on Saturday mornings. They served great classic breakfast food. But what remember was the amazing red winking neon fox sign.
After breakfast we’d head down the Strip to the Riviera to get our hair cut at the barber shop.
It was such a wonderful small town feeling!

As a kid my parents would drive to Las Vegas. Along the way you would start seeing signs about Foxy`s deli.

We went several times. Great food, I remember the chopped liver. There of course is the legend that two cooks got into a fight and stabbed each other.

Now I would like to add I moved to Las vegas in 1979 I went to lady luck school of Dealing.

My first Job was dealing Double exposure at Foxy firehouse casino the home of the one man dealers craps table.

One day a guy comes in and I end up losing a couple of grand. At the end of my shift I was fired by the pit boss for losing.

I walked across the street and GOT HIRED AT JOLLEY TROLLEY

My husband and I went to Vegas all the time from Phoenix and through the 60's was my favorite time. Hotels were low rise - grass around the pool that still had high dives - no crowds - people dressed up, etc. etc. Miss those great days!

My mother, Loretta Hegerich worked there for 13 years, late 50's & 60's. She just celebrated her 100th birthday in Las Vegas! Some "old timers" might remember her,the waitress with the bright red hair!

we just had a pastrami sandwich and was thinking of all the times we ate at Foxy's. My parents owned a ranch outside of LV. This is where we shopped. They were there from 1940 into the 70's. Mom is still alive 101 and said other than the highway, Fremont was the only paved street.

My wife and I drove over from L.A. in 1970 and got married. Best memory was discovering Foxy's great breakfasts. Many more trips always included Foxy's. We so miss the "old vegas"
