Erik Estrada Cashes in His Vegas ‘CHiPs’ for Fancy Steak Dinner

Erik Estrada may not be chasing down bad guys anymore, but he isn’t afraid of getting his hands dirty … which is exactly what he did when he dug into one of the best steaks Las Vegas has to offer.

Estrada, who famously played Frank “Ponch” Poncherello alongside Larry Wilcox in the 70s, was just in Sin City promoting an upcoming Vegas attraction called, “Police Chase.” The Chips duo also promoted the attraction at the annual SHOT Show firearm convention.

In between dealing with heavy firepower, Estrada stopped by Andiamo Italian Steakhouse at the D Hotel and Casino downtown.

Estrada and “Police Chase” co-owner Jay Bloom were invited to Andiamo by casino owner Derek Stevens to dine on signature steaks, seafood and desserts.

To check out the “Police Chase” you can get tickets here.

We’re told guests in the restaurant went crazy over seeing the TV star, and he took the time to sign autographs and take pictures in between bites of juicy steaks.
