I ordered the meatloaf last night. I know it is a weird choice but a good restaurant will take pride in their meatloaf. This stuff was made years ago, frozen into a log, sliced like liverwurst, microwaved, and covered in tasteless and cold gravey and then served to me cold. It tasted like canned dog food smells. The worst food... More

Worst casino ever!!!!! The food is HORRIBLE! After eating you go running... Straight for the bathroom. Cocktail waitresses are always moody & getting served takes at least an hour for even the simplest drink. They got rid of all the great, competent & good looking cocktail waitresses. Chris Romm is an incompetent manager at best, if he even shows up... More

Dont waist your time or money. Worst atmosphere in Reno. Its a dive as well as the tightest slots in Reno. Poor service lazy staff you have to wait and request service at a full bar unattended for long durations. Cashier cage rude staff. Hit or miss if sports booth is open. Place is filthy and lights are burned out... More

The Cafe is especially good. Solid meals and a great daily special. But you will need to come hungry!

We were promptly seated and orders taken. My husband and I both ordered prime rib with baked potatoes and cream of... More

If you want free drinks serve rapidly, this is NOT your place. If you are looking for terrific deals on food, this is NOT your place. If you want single deck black jack with a couple dealers only or a half a craps game, this is your place. We like going here when we want to be low key and... More

If I don't want to hassle with the big crowds, I go to Bonanza just to relax and play. The employees are all very friendly and personable.
