Some restaurants and bars in Las Vegas are taking the piss with their customers, they will add on a CNF – “concession and franchise fee” charge to your bill when dining and drinking.
It’s commonly known as a junk / hidden fee, it not a big charge and usually about 5%, but this fee may add up to a fair bit when group dining though.
The fee is also sometimes called a “concession fee,” or “venue fee”. The menu prices for the food and drinks seem a bit cheaper at first glance when you order, well that’s until they bang on the CNF charge to the bill at the end.
Always check your menu or bill for the charge on this fee and if you don’t want to pay it just say no as it is not a legal tax.
Don’t punish your server with a no or low tip as it’s not their doing, the venue will usually not argue about it when you call them out, just ask for the CNF to be taken off the bill.
