Great opportunity to network with fellow colleagues in a relaxed, inviting environment. The party trays had an excellent choice of foods. The flautas (potato tacos) where the greatest hit, but the sonora tacos were excellent as well. The amazing salsa which is at each table is excellent on everything, my favorite is adding to the the burgers. Excellent local business,... More

Stopped in Old Town Yuma today for lunch at Lutes Casino. The food was excellent, good parking in the rear and our waiter, Beau, did an excellent job of serving us. I highly recommended Lutes Casino if you are going through Yuma. It is just off i-8 in the historic district of Yuma

When I was a student at Arizona Western in Yuma our art history teacher gave us the assignment of visiting and eating at Lutes. He said that Lutes was an art form and a piece of Yuma history. He was right - the place was fantastic and has changed a little over the years but still remains one of the... More

Description
Proudly feeding Yuma, AZ since the early 1940s, Lutes Casino remains a local dining institution! Our eclectic atmosphere and fun pool hall games make us a destination unlike any other in the area. Stop by today! Over the years, we have collected memorabilia from all over - and it's all over our walls. Our service is local and friendly, our drinks cold, and our food fresh. Try our famous potato tacos or the popular Lutes Especial which has been our signature burger since 1951 featuring a cheeseburger and hot dog combination not for the faint of heart. When you come to Yuma, there's no question - Lutes Casino is a must-try!
