Good food and atmosphere. This place was once a jail and you can take a picture with your head above a jailbird outfit. One for the memory book!

Lut's casino is a Yuma landmark. Located on Main Street among eclectic antique stores. Been there forever with friendly staff and decent menu. Check it out if you want an experience outside of the typical chains and for some fun.

I like Lutes because they are really a community member and will help local fund raisers with take over nights. Beside that they have a good short order menue.

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!
