Typical Casino Fare

Nothing out of the ordinary. Prices are good but the menu like the salad bar is anemic. OK for a quick meal

I live within a 5 minute drive from this casino so it pains me greatly to write this. I desperately want to support local businesses and feel the pride of having visitors come and enjoy themselves. Unfortunately Bonanza is not an establishment that in good conscious I feel I can do this. The finest restaurant food has turned to mediocre... More

I am a local and don't have a lot of spare cash for gambling. That means that when I do want to throw some dice or play a little blackjack, I don't want to do it for $25 a hand. Bonanza Casino is a neighborhood place that has a good atmosphere and generally low table stakes. You can play for... More

When we visit Reno we always have to have breakfast on our last day at the Branding Iron just for their french toast! My friend says it is The best she has ever had anywhere in the usa. That toast is covered with fresh berries, whipped cream piled high. I recommend the chicken fried steak and eggs for those conventual... More

What a strange and impersonal little place. It was better when it was lower rent, before the remodel, because they tried harder to please their customers. And, they don't allow kids in their restaurant?? In Reno?? What??

And okay local casino, it was a little on the dark side with a little bit too much smoke. But lots of machines crammed into this space. It was pretty large with several restaurants and bars. The service was not so friendly.

This is an old casino and has a strong cigarette smell. The coffee shop isn't that clean and serves 'iffy' food the service is 'iffy' as well.. Cactus Jack's is a good restaurant and has great food and service.

This used to be our favorite place to go on Wednesday night for all you can eat spaghetti night but they started making so many rules about it and the staff was so rude we stopped going and so did our friends. The spaghetti was good but dont expect a second dish without a sour puss face from your waiter.

We are not from Reno but had a friend say to check this casino out as he had enjoyed it. We had a couple of hours to kill so went here. Wow I can't believe people sit in this dingy place for extended periods of time. The machine ARE low cost, ie 1 cent machines on up to higher if... More
