Shortly after leaving the Welk Show, her first engagement in Las Vegas was to co-star at the New Frontier Hotel under the musical direction and arrangements by Nelson Riddle, choreographed by Charlie O'Curran and gowns designed by Edith Head. The performance received rave reviews. "Variety"-Las Vegas wrote, "Roberta Linn, the best friend a song ever had". She then went on to appear with Danny Thomas, on the main stage of the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas. A versatile singer, Roberta Linn won TV's coveted "Emmy Award", as the Outstanding Talent Of The Year when she starred coast-to-coast in her own television show, Roberta Linn's "CAFE CONTINENTAL" sponsored by the Gas Appliance Dealers of America.
