We were watching "Great Truck Stops" on television the other day and they recommended Sierra Sid's Casino not only has a great truck stop for food in Sparks, NV, but they have an interesting collection of guns, etc., right inside the casino. So while in Reno, we drove the short distance to Sid's to see what it was all about.... More

For its purpose, Sierra Sid's does a very good job. It serves the many interstate highway 80 truckers who stop for gas, some food, and perhaps try their hand at luck at the casino. Its a very small casino in the scope of Reno's larger casinos that are downtown and as such, we do not go here often. But it... More

The food leaves a lot to be desires as does the 'cafe' if you want to call it that. Total joke. Prices are absurd as well.

My wife and I ate at the restaurant here. It is a truck stop, and that usually means "trucker" portions. We ordered our dishes and when they brought them out to us, I was a bit disappointed at the portions. The food wasn't spectacular, but still pretty good. As we were finishing our dinner, our server returned and asked us... More

Good place to fuel the car up and grab a coffee. Did not eat or enter the casino. Easy access off of rt. 80.

I had a great time playing the old slot machines; nickels actually dropped out. And, the Sports Book guys were great in helping me place a bet on the Superbowl. Also, this place has a really good restaurant with good wholesome food and a great salad bar. It is in walking distance to the Western Village Inn.

This is where we stay in Reno/Sparks about once a week! Exit 19 of I-80. We love the area, you can walk about 2 blocks to the Sparks Marina and have a nice walk around the lake. Stop off at the Legends Mall for some window shopping or a movie. Check out my review of the Legends Mall. The showers... More

Some okay restaurants, but it is basically just a truck stop with a small casino. Not a place you'd go out of your way to visit, see, etc.
