This is where the locals go. Not best food. We have eaten here half a dozen times. First couple of times bbq was good. Gone down hill after that, unfortunately. Play the machines a bit and the drinks once in awhile can be fun.

The buffet expanded slightly better. Fairly priced. Enjoy their dessert options. Favorite menu item is definitely their burger-burger fry-fry. Hits the spot every time. I love the shark they hang above the main entrance for their seafood Friday buffet theme. Main complaint is waiting time and some of the waiters tend to be rude.

Rail City Casino, needs a little work. the buffet was just ok, about what you would expect for average casino. Nothing like the Grand, but that is another review. The casino was not very busy. Has slots but not a lot of table games that I noticed.

The old buffet offered senior special prices, but with the upgrade, you have to gamble so much to get the discount, senior or not. Bad policy. Food not any better, just pricier.

Rail City has a nice selection of slot machines and some older slot games that you don't find everywhere. The drink servers are a little slow and sometimes hard to find. The casino floor is a little smokey for my taste. The Ale House is always a good choice for a quick inexpensive meal. They have a good selection of... More

The food was good but to many drunks and fights among the locals for a safe visit. Would not recommend being there after 8pm

We have always loved his casino. The atmosphere is awesome, staff is incredibly friendly, and they have an inexpensive cafe with good food. But my whole reason for going to Rail City was the $3 blackjack. With that gone I really have no reason to go there. Went in last night and found the card tables competely empty. Never used... More

THis is the type of casino that give Sparks its stellar reputation. Plenty of low limit games, but you will feel like you smoked a full pack of cigarettes after being there an hour.
