there was a time when my family would be hungry, and we would go for some decent food at a decent price. over the last 4 years, that has ended. their food selection has minimized along with their servings.

This truck stop has become so filthy. Employees are slow,lazy and obviously don't wanna be there. They added a bar so now we have drunk truck drivers leaving and driving. They now have a pretty good flow of Hooks and dopers who patronize the place. From here on out Alamo gets my buisness.

Go anywhere but here. This place is a dive/greasy spoon. Horrible and smells. The food is not very good.

This place used to have good foods, now the wait staff is terrible, food is lousy. Don't play the casino games you will never win in this place. To dark and smelly. Not really a truck stop anymore, more of a casino that never pays anyone off.

We stepped in and stepped out. This is a typical electronic gambling place. It is a truck stop and has a nice convenience store. Gas station and snacks...Ho Hummmmm.

Truck stop and casino in one. The food is basic and good, nothing really fancy. Very family friendly prices.

No table games, but lots and lots of slots. Reasonably quiet and good service when you need it. Restaurant serves good basic food. Again, nothing special but tasty and worth the prices.

The casino is sooooooo out of date - you have to wait for a hand pay just to change slot machines. Stopped in once cause it was RIGHT THERE off I80 - a waste of time. The floors go up & down depending on where you are - seems rooms were added a long, long time ago. Basically a truck... More

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
